Plumbing

Plumbing is both visually and functionally tested throughout the home.

Starting with the water supply at the street, the main water cut-off, typically in the garage, the water heater, laundry fixtures, kitchen sink and appliances (dishwasher, ice maker connections), and continuing to every faucet, supply valve, and drain in the home. All aspects of the plumbing system are thoroughly inspected and tested for function and leaks.

Each and every accessible faucet and plumbing fixture inside, and outside the home is functionally tested, flushed, ran, drained, and inspected. Loose toilets cause hidden water damage, as can leaks under sinks. Our plumbing inspection is extremely thorough.

The other side of plumbing supply lines are drain lines. When water flows in to a home, waste water must flow out. Toilet waste (sewage), sink and tub drains (grey water), and the main drain are all visually (where applicable) and functionally tested. Active leaks are identified, and resultant damage is detailed in the narrative reporting process.

In order for drains to drain properly and efficiently, vents must be functional. Behind every drain is a vent, which allows water to drain effortlessly to the main drain. If a vent is blocked or compromised, the drain will not drain smoothly, and will gurgle or drain slow.
