The Importance of Annual Plumbing Inspections

Your plumbing system is a pretty important part of your home. Many different appliances that you use every day rely on the plumbing system in order to keep operating. So, it’s a good idea to make sure that your plumbing system stays in good condition for as long as possible. One of the easiest ways to do that is to make sure that you schedule annual plumbing inspection services. Read on to find out how annual inspections can help you.

Plumbing Problems

What makes maintenance so important with plumbing systems is that it’s very hard to catch plumbing problems early. Most of the system is hidden from view, and barring any massive emergencies, the majority of plumbing problems start out quite small. They don’t stay that way, though, and by the time you realize that you have a plumbing problem it’s probably already inflicted quite a bit of damage on the system. This is why plumbing maintenance is so important, because it allows your plumber to find and fix problems with the system before they have the chance to cause that much damage.

Methods of Inspection

There are a wide range of plumbing inspection methods that plumbers use to evaluate your system. Most common is the video pipe inspection, which involves inserting a long cord into your pipes with a camera on the end of it. The camera travels through the pipes, sending images back to the plumber controlling it. This allows your plumber to inspect your plumbing pipes without having to physically tear up the walls to examine them. You can save quite a bit of money on repair costs by scheduling annual plumbing inspection services.
