Plumbing Inspection Overview
Plumbing refers to a series of interconnected pipes, valves, and tanks that are used to transport water to and from a residential or commercial property as well as fuel such as natural gas. Typically made from copper or PVC, these systems work to deliver potable water, supply fuel to water heaters, and transport wastewater to local sewer and septic systems.
Some of the most common plumbing issues we run into in the Southwest are leaking fixtures, drainage issues, or low water pressure. While these issues may seem relatively innocuous at first glance, they could be signs of much larger—and potentially costly—repairs. This can be even more dangerous if there are leaks in fuel lines.
