Plumbing Inspection

Did you know that if you’re buying a house, it’s highly recommended to get a plumbing inspection done by a qualified and experienced plumber? Yes, this is in addition to a building and pest control inspection .

A pre-purchase plumbing examination should be done for your peace of mind. It would be a pity to move in only to be met with a terrible surprise in the form of a costly plumbing problem.

At CRG, only one of our highly skilled plumbers performs pre-purchase plumbing Inspections. This guarantees that the pre-existing plumbing in your potential new home is thoroughly examined.

 Please keep in mind that the building inspection looks at the home’s structural soundness. This is done by a builder who looks for structural issues rather than plumbing issues. When purchasing a new house, you must be aware of all prices and any potential difficulties. Because plumbing is a costly feature, you need be aware of any issues requiring expensive repairs or maintenance.

Complete plumbing and drainage examination may give homeowners, commercial property owners, and body corporate and property managers a detailed image of the building’s overall plumbing condition. This not only helps with budgeting for repairs, but also allows you to get work done when it’s convenient for you rather than having to deal with difficulties in an emergency.

One of the significant benefits of hiring an experienced professional plumber is seeing issues that an inexperienced eye could overlook. They’re also equipped with specialised tools, such as drain cameras, to look within drainage systems.

The following are some of the advantages of a thorough plumbing inspection: 

  • Prevent damage from mains water leaks by catching problems early on before they become more significant concerns when you least expect them. A leak in a wall or cabinet can cause substantial and costly water damage in a short amount of time.
  • Reduce water waste – even a small leak can build up to a significant increase in your water cost over time. Identify partially clogged drains before they become entirely blocked to avoid stopped drains. Clogs can occur quickly due to issues such as tree root intrusion.
  • Hot water that is more energy-efficient – flaws in your hot water system can cause it to work harder to heat the water in your house, resulting in more significant energy expenses as well as a shorter lifespan for the water heater, resulting in higher replacement and repair costs in the long run.
  • Free-flowing stormwater drains – it’s critical to inspect stormwater drains for a build-up of dirt, garden debris, or leaves during extended periods of dry weather so that when storm season arrives, the gutters can remove precipitation and prevent floods.
  • Prevent pest damage – some bugs, such as termites, thrive in the wet environment that a slowly leaking pipe or drain can provide. Leaks should be repaired as soon as possible to avoid infestation or damage.
  • Prevent the growth of mould or mildew – mould and mildew can cause health problems for individuals who live in your house, especially those who suffer from allergies.
