When You Need a Whole Home Plumbing Inspection

When was the last time you had your home’s plumbing fully inspected? Did you know that a plumbing leak in a typical home can waste up to 10,000 gallons of water a year? Scarier yet, think about the damage all that water can cause to your infrastructure and/or landscaping. A whole-home plumbing inspection is the surest way to get ahead of a leak before it results in inexpensive and often irreparable damage.

A complete whole-home plumbing inspection can save you thousands of dollars in plumbing repairs down the road. Hudson Plumbing is scheduling inspections right now in Morgan County, Indiana, and the surrounding counties.

Before You Sell Your House

It’s typical for a home inspection to take place on the buyer’s behalf when selling your home, but you can get ahead of the game by preemptively requesting your own inspection. Having your home’s plumbing inspected before selling will give you a chance to make necessary repairs, thus greatly improving your chances of selling the home. Common issues that may become apparent on the inspection are undetected leaks, dripping faucets, and even clogged drains.

Before You Buy a House

This goes without saying, but you should always have a potential home inspected by a licensed inspector. Homebuyers should be as conservative as possible when buying a home. Ask lots of questions, and leave as little up to chance as possible. However, it’s important to understand that home inspectors are not licensed¬†plumbers. While they can certainly audit the home’s plumbing system, they likely will not be equipped to thoroughly examine the entire system and/or provide feedback and recommendations.

If You’ve Had Problems in the Past

Even if you’re not buying or selling a home, sometimes it’s smart to perform a simple audit of your home just for peace of mind. This is especially the case if you’ve had plumbing problems in the past. If your home was built pre-1930s, and the plumbing is original to the home, it’s probably plumbed using galvanized pipes. If this is the case, schedule a whole-home plumbing inspection sooner rather than later to prevent unwanted leaks that could lead to damage to your home.

Questions to ask your plumbing inspector

  • Will you be using a camera to inspect the home’s main drain?

  • How much does it cost to perform a whole home plumbing inspection?

  • Are you a licensed and insured plumber?
