Q: What does an inspector look for when evaluating the plumbing system?


The plumbing in your home is an essential yet often overlooked system that provides clean water and proper collection and transportation of waste water. Due to the complexity of these systems, it is important to have them inspected for potential 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 look over the visible piping for evidence of leaks or malfunction, such as staining, mildew or odors.

The inspector will turn on and off the faucets and check for signs of leakage or drain issues. Additionally, they will look for missing caulking and any visible drainage problems. The inspector will note if problems are identified and recommend repairs.
