Offering Residential Plumbing Inspection in McAllen, TX

When Was the Last Time Your Plumbing System Was Inspected?

Your home’s plumbing system has several important purposes, from supplying you with clean water to carrying wastewater away from your home. When any part of your plumbing system fails to perform as it should, you can experience some frustrating disruptions in your daily life. A clogged drain can make a toilet, sink, or bathtub virtually unusable. A Leaking pipe can cause serious property damage. A malfunctioning water heater can give you a cold and unpleasant shock when you step into the shower. The best way to keep your plumbing system performing at top condition is with residential plumbing diagnosis and inspection services. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of McAllen offers residential plumbing inspection and diagnosis in McAllen, TX, and the surrounding areas. Learn more about our plumbing services.

How Are Plumbing Inspection and Diagnosis Different?

A plumbing home inspection often goes hand-in-hand with diagnostics. However, there is a slight difference between the two. An inspection is an overall assessment of your home’s plumbing system and its functionality. This is a preventative measure that we recommend all homeowners take every year or two (and some homes need to be inspected more often). On the other hand, diagnostics are more focused. When there is a specific problem, such as a leaking pipe or a sewage backup, we use advanced diagnostic methods to find out the nature of the problem. Luckily, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of McAllen can help you with inspections and diagnostics.

What Happens During an Inspection?

If you’ve never had a plumbing inspection from Mr. Rooter Plumbing of McAllen, you might be wondering what is involved. Ultimately, there is no single set of tasks that make up a comprehensive inspection because every home’s plumbing system is slightly different. Our home service professionals will develop a customized task list while they are inspecting your home. However, some things are common in most inspection visits, such as:

  • Tuning up your toilets
  • Examining all fixtures and faucets
  • Testing the hardness of your water
  • Testing your pressure-reducing valve
  • Inspecting and emptying cleanout traps
  • Checking to see if all drains are flowing freely
  • Performing a pressure vacuum breaker check
  • Assessing the condition of your garbage disposal
  • Checking the condition of your main shut-off valve

When Is the Best Time for a Plumbing Inspection?

If you have never had a general plumbing inspection, then the best time to get one is right now. After that, most professionals recommend a routine inspection every year or two. However, some homes will need more attention than others based on their age and condition. Beyond your routinely scheduled inspections, there are a few times in life when it is a good idea to have your plumbing checked by our home services professionals, such as:

  • If you are purchasing a new home
  • If you are preparing your home for sale
  • If you are remodeling or installing a new plumbing appliance, consider a residential plumbing installation inspection
  • If you notice unusual activity in your plumbing system’s drains, faucets, toilets, or appliances
