While it may not be top-of-mind, protecting your home’s plumbing is just as important as the other maintenance steps you take to ensure your property runs smoothly. Scheduling a yearly Charlotte pipe inspection and maintenance will help you detect pipe issues, prevent plumbing emergencies, save money, and extend the life of your plumbing system.
What is a pipe inspection?
A pipe inspection is when a plumber uses a camera to travel through and inspect the status of your pipes or plumbing. The camera is attached to a malleable cable and guided through your plumbing system. The pipe inspection will reveal the condition of the inside of your pipes, exposing any leaks, buildup, or potential problem areas. It requires zero disruption to your lawn or flooring and can be completed relatively quickly. Your Charlotte plumber will access your pipes through an existing entrance to insert a waterproof, high-definition camera.
The four main benefits of a pipe inspection:
Detect Pipe Issues
A professional pipe inspection will detect small issues within your system before they turn into costly plumbing emergencies. A live look at the inner working of your pipes allows a professional Charlotte plumber to warn you of cracks, invasive tree roots, or corrosion that could affect your pipes if not treated.
Extend the Life of Your Plumbing
By making preventative moves with your plumbing, you extend the expected lifespan of the entire system. Pipe inspections allow you to know when it’s time to have pipe cleaning performed or when you need to replace old pipes.
Prevent Plumbing Emergencies
A call to a Charlotte emergency plumber is one that you want to avoid. By scheduling your annual pipe inspection, you’ll be aware of any issues and be provided viable solutions to prevent an emergency from occurring.
Lower your monthly utility costs and avoid repair fees with an annual pipe inspection. Pipe inspections detect leaks, which can unknowingly increase your water bill. Avoiding a call to an emergency plumber will also save on future repairs.
Scheduling a yearly pipe inspection is one of the easiest ways to detect plumbing challenges before they become a major expense. Keep your pipes flowing at optimum capacity and ward off the need for large repairs or replacements with an annual inspection.
