Homeowners can request a plumbing inspection at any time, but it is especially prudent to arrange inspections on an annual basis and when purchasing a new home.

Many homeowners schedule an annual plumbing inspection to keep up with preventive maintenance and ensure that the home’s plumbing is in good working order. A full inspection can help to pinpoint potential plumbing problems that can save money, time, and damage. Annual inspections are also a great way to keep track of appliances like water heaters, consider scheduling an inspection along with an annual flush.

When purchasing a new home, there is always a home inspector that will perform a building inspection and deliver a report. However, the report may not provide new buyers with costs associated with repairs and can miss some potential issues.

It is always a good idea to schedule an independent plumbing inspection outside of the homeowners’ inspection. Many plumbers will review the full inspection and can make recommendations on the cost of potential repairs giving new home buyers a full picture of what they are getting into with the home.
