General Inspection of the Plumbing Systems
Every home needs a quality plumbing system to operate effectively. We use plumbing systems in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room to complete daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning and bathing. During a plumbing home inspection in Denton, our inspectors will first conduct a general inspection of the plumbing system. This will include visual observations and the operation of the system.
Pipes that are readily accessible as well as fixtures and components are inspected first. Faucets are turned on and checked for water flow, types of piping used are inspected as well as condition. Any minor defects that are found along the way are noted. With water flow performance, the running is judged as it runs though the pipes and sewage systems.
The water heater will be inspected for the heating of the water as well as that the unit is operating safely. This will include checking the model type based on fuel source such as oil, gas or butane. The pressure relief valve will be checked as well as the temperature.
Once each area of the plumbing system has been checked and inspected, the home inspector will provide you with a comprehensive report. The report will be gone over with you so that you understand the wording used as well as what steps need to be taken by way of repair or upgrade. This report will help you make an informed decision on whether to purchase the home, or list for sale if the inspection as of your current home.
Water Supply Testing
Depending on where the home is located, the water supply may be provided by the city or a private source, even a well or river. If the water source for the home is found to be non-approved or a private source, the inspector will recommend that the home owner have an expert evaluate the integrity of the supply.
