Plumbing is an important part of the home inspection process. Good plumbing assures that all the usable water is entering and exiting the home correctly without any leaks or problems. Water leaks can cause substantial damages in a home if not tended to immediately. There are several different aspects to inspecting the plumbing in a home. The inspector is checking for leaks in both the supply and drain lines. The drain lines are checked for proper p-traps to assure that sewer gasses will not enter the home. We inspect the water heater to make sure it is working properly and that it is not leaking. We also inspect what type of drain and supply line is in the home. Some older supply/drain lines are more prone than others to leaking or clogging. All types of plumbing line will be listed on the home inspection report.
