An Annual Plumbing Inspection and Checklist for Your Home
It is that time of year again. The days are ticking away. Do you have your home inspection checklist complete for this year? When you want peace of mind knowing your house is in tip-top shape for the next twelve months, then Home Comfort Experts has a solution. Our preventative maintenance program includes member perks that can save you tons of money.
What plumbing services maintenance should homeowners do inside the house each year?
- Check all plumbing lines to and from the water heater for leaks.
- Check the the p-traps underneath all your sinks.
- Check the water heater temperature – it should be 120 degrees Fahrenheit for safety and to ensure your water heater lasts.
- Inspect your shower head and bathtub faucets for rust, hard water buildup, and leaks.
- Check your washing machines and dishwasher hoses for leaks, corrosion, and mineral deposits.
- Turn the garbage disposal on to see if it operates smoothly and quietly.
- Check sewage drains and make sure they are working properly.
- Inspect the toilet for leaks, moisture buildup and inefficient operation.
Outdoor areas to check for damage before calling a plumber:
Your gutters and downspouts can flood your drains if they do not remove water effectively. When you have clogs, it can allow water to pool in one area or another. This water can seep into the walls or the foundation, and it can cause mold growth because the water is stagnant.
Why is it important to have an annual plumbing inspection?
- Money savings on toilet repairs and drain cleaning services.
Did you know that over 10 percent of houses in the United States have plumbing issues causing a loss of nearly 100 gallons of water a day? Is your home one of these houses? Unless you perform regular plumbing checks or have an annual plumbing inspection, you may not realize the money you could be saving.
2. Avoid the messy work and save the hassle with a yearly checkup.
Using an expert means that you do not have to do the dirty work of climbing under the house or in crawlspaces to check all the connections. When the plumber finds small problems, you can choose whether you want to complete the repair now or later. For big problems, you will be happy that an expert is capable of handling water heater installations and replacing sump pumps. Fixing clogged drains and toilet issues is another thing most homeowners are happy to hand over to the expert after an annual plumbing inspection. When you do not want or do not know how to flush your water heater, our plumbing inspectors at Home Comfort Experts perform this task as a part of our annual maintenance program, the Comfort Club.
Tips for maintaining your plumbing between visits.
- Routinely look for leaks, corrosion, or damage.
- Investigate any mold or mildew smells.
- Insulate outdoor plumbing like pipes that run under the house.
- Remember that the seals in your pipes will wear out over time – if you are lucky enough to avoid these issues for several years, then be wary of potential problems and be vigilant with your plumbing checks.
