Benefits of a Plumbing Inspection for New Homeowners


Greenwood Plumber Getting a plumbing inspection is vital to health and maintenance of a new home. Be sure to have a professional plumber inspect your new home so that you feel confident that the plumbing system is in good working order. You will want to have regular inspections performed as well to make sure the pipes and bearings are in good condition and the pressure is good.

During a plumbing inspection the main valve is one of the most important things that will need to be checked. Typically, it can be found on the outside of the house. The main valve shuts off and turns on water for the home. If there is ever a plumbing system problem, the main valve serves as an emergency brake for the water supply in the home to protect against any serious water damage that could occur without it. It also allows a homeowner the time needed to either fix the problem or call a professional for help. Therefore, when getting a plumbing inspection it is imperative that checking the main valve should not be missed.

Regular inspection checks on the coils and pipes to find leaks or cracks in the seams are important to avoid more severe problems down the line. Making sure that the bearings that connect the pipes and walls are free from build up or decay is also essential to avoiding future challenges in the plumbing system. It is even more important to make sure plastic bearings are inspected because they do not last as long and will need to be replaced more often.

A plumbing inspection for a new homeowner is a relatively simple process and it offers many benefits. Preventing future costly damage and protecting the health of a costly investment can bring peace of mind to new homeowners. Additionally, a plumbing inspection can increase the longevity and lifespan of the plumbing system and ensure that the water within the home functions seamlessly for years to come.
