The plumbing in your home is an essential
and often overlooked system that provides
clean water and proper collection and
transport of waste water. The plumbing
systems we take for granted today have
ties to systems dating back several thousand years.
Those ancient plumbing systems relied on gravity to
supply water through pipes or channels made of clay,
lead or stone.
Today, water-supply systems utilize a network of
high-pressure pumps and pipes made of copper,
brass, plastic, steel, or other nontoxic material.
Due to the complexity of these systems it is a
good idea to have them inspected for problems
before you buy a home. A National Property
Inspections professional will provide a visual
inspection of any bathtubs, showers, pipes,
toilets, sinks, etc.
The inspector will make certain all fixtures are
installed properly and show no signs of leakage.
Additionally, they will look for missing calking
and any drainage problems they might be able
to see. If problems are identified, the inspector
will explain what repairs are needed and what
actions should be taken.
