Because your home is likely the single largest investment you will make in your lifetime, it is important that you take measures to protect your investment. Whether you have just purchased your home or you have lived in your home for most of your life, there are important inspections that must be performed to ensure there are no potential problems that could cause damage and expensive repair. One such inspection is the plumbing system.
Nothing is more frustrating then burst pipes, collapsed septic tank, or a backed up sewer line. A plumbing inspection by a licensed Toronto plumber will involve the use of sophisticated diagnostic plumbing technology to identify any weaknesses, flaws, and serious damage. By identifying such problems, it will ensure that you will be able to get it repaired before a serious and expensive problem occurs.
The plumbing system is concerned with both water and gas. When you have your plumbing inspected each year that includes the septic tank and drain field, it will help extend the life of your plumbing system. Depending on the complexity of the septic system, it can take just a couple of hours to perform a thorough maintenance inspection. Professional certified plumbers normally offer a variety of inspection packages. In general, you can have the following plumbing system mechanisms checked: above ground plumbing such as the pipes, shut-off valves and traps in the laundry room, bathroom, and kitchen, basement floor drains, as well as an inspection of the hot water tank. Such fixtures as the toilet, showerheads, and faucets, will also be checked. As well, the plumber will check to make sure there is proper drainage and that the venting systems are not compromised.
When performing the plumbing inspection, the sump pump will be inspected to make sure there are no obstructions and that the horsepower output is sufficient to prevent basement flooding. The plumber may also perform a special video camera inspection of sewer pipes and underground drains to identify any misalignments, damage, and cracks that can cause a drain blockage. If you have not had your septic tank recently pumped, the plumber may suggest having it pumped.
To keep your septic tank and entire septic system functioning properly, the best thing you can do is employ septic system maintenance practices throughout the year. Not only will you ensure the system performs properly, but you will also extend the life of the septic system.
Because plumbing failures can happen without any warning, having your plumbing system checked will give you peace of mind. A plumbing inspection should be performed once a year to detect any problems or the potential of a problem occurring. If problems are addressed early, you will most likely save a lot of money on repair bills. Whether it is a new home or an existing home, a plumbing inspection is a vital preventative maintenance tool. It is well worth investing a couple of hundred dollars to prevent an emergency that could result in a repair bill of thousands of dollars.
