Home Plumbing Inspections
When new homes are built, many municipalities won’t issue a Certificate of Occupancy to homeowners until a licensed plumber has performed an thorough plumbing inspection of the home. This includes water pipes, sewer pipes, valves and seals and any extenuating sewer gas vents that are part of the system. Depending on the municipality, a plumbing inspection may also include the laundry room washer, the kitchen dishwasher and kitchen sink garbage disposal systems linked to water and drainage lines.
When purchasing a previously built home, always have a home inspection completed. This often is completed by a general home inspector that does a quick check of pipes and taps to ensure water runs as it should. If there is any cause for concern, it is imperative to have a professional plumber in to assess the situation. This may include checking sewer lines for roots (even if a trenchless sewer system is in place) or potential moisture problem caused by slab leaks.

Ongoing Commercial Inspections
Many of our commercial clients know that regular plumbing inspections are the best way to avoid costly plumbing repairs. Downtime in an industrial plant that relies heavily on their water and piping is costly. This is one reason these large sites enlist the services of a plumbing contractor for annual plumbing inspections. These facilities depend on their plumbing contractor to detect potential piping and water system problems before they occur.
The cost of an annual contract for plumbing inspections is factored into their regular budgets to insure consistent service for all plumbing needs for their facilities. A Sacramento plumber is trained and skilled in performing comprehensive plumbing inspections for regulatory municipality compliance as well as for home and building owners.
Today, most expert plumbers use state-of-the-art leak detection equipment to find leaks and problem areas. Technology such as Video Inspection takes the guesswork out of locating problems. Before the water piping supply to the lawn sprinkler system damages a basement, a plumbing expert finds the problem leak before it occurs. Restaurant, laundromats, car washes, bottling company owners and many hydro-electric power companies need annual inspections of their facilities to insure reliable performance of their water, sewerage and drainage systems. Discuss plumbing inspection needs with a professional plumbing expert. They offer quality inspection design parameters for most business and residential needs and help reduce unnecessary repair expense.
