Plumbing Inspection – A plumbing inspection is one of those things where a little diligence now can save you a lot of problems later. This is particularly true with older homes. Old houses often have character to them, but sometimes come with their fair share of unwelcome surprises, as well. That can be in the form of electrical wiring, insulation, structure, foundation, and plumbing as well.
This is particularly true of homes in older neighbourhoods of Toronto, such as East York, North Toronto or The Beaches.
It is possible to inspect the plumbing yourself, but there are a whole lot of different things to keep in mind, and it requires some level of knowledge in terms of what to look for. For some peace of mind that the inspection’s being done correctly, and to take another thing off your plate, lean on the experts at DrainWorks.
We use modern camera technology to thoroughly inspect the system and give you our expert recommendations.
Here are some things that we’ll commonly check out when carrying out a thorough plumbing inspection:
- Identification of lead pipes and recommendation for replacement;
- Inspection of drainage pipes for any leaks or signs of weakness;
- Hot Water Tank plumbing service;
- Checking of supply line valves;
- Assessment of outdoor faucets/taps to ensure their correct operation and location.
- Inspection of basement drainage and crawl space for signs of leaks.
This is not an inclusive list but should give you a sense of what we offer as part of our inspection services. If we do identify problems, our plumbers area always ready to fix the issues right then and there, if it’s possible to.
Whether you’re in a starter home, have recently moved up to a larger space, or downsized after the nest has emptied, you can always count on the experts at DrainWorks for all your Toronto plumbing needs.
Our friendly, expert plumbers and technicians always keep the customer informed every step of the way, and are full-time, salaried employees – so they’ll never try to upsell you. That’s our promise to you, and that’s the DrainWorks advantage.
