WHAT DOES THE 1GROUP PLUMBING INSPECTION COVER?

The major issues we inspect are:

The condition of the pipes (especially signs of corrosion). Leaks, which sometimes are so small that they escape detection from a visual check alone. We will also look for signs of water leaks, including dampness, water stains, mould and mildew. Water pressure that is too low is often a sign of internal pipe corrosion and when it is too high it can lead to leaks and spontaneous pipe bursts.

Let’s take a look at the major areas of inspection:

kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of every home and it is where you and your family spend most of your time together. The Experts know that you’ve probably got your eye on the clock and the timer as you hustle to put meals on the table and pack lunches to head out the door. A thorough check of this area is needed and includes:

The sink; The what could be pesky, under-sink piping; Supply lines; Angle stops; Dishwasher air gap.

At this point of the inspection you may become an expert too, as you learn some plumbing terms, which you may have never heard before, such as the air gap, which prevents dirty drain water from backing up into the dishwasher and spewing onto clean dishes.

Bathroom

As busy as the kitchen can be, this is most probably the rooms with the most plumbing related traffic. This makes your bathrooms a focus point of inspection, relating to the following: 

Faucets; Sink pipes; Sink supply lines; Under sink drain pipes; Angle stop (sink); Toilet tanks; Toilet supply line; Toilet seat; Flush valves; Flapper; Angle stop (toilet)

Many well-intentioned homeowners attempt to tackle a “toilet tune-up” on their own to save on water but then encounter problems when they flush with the flush valve or the flapper, which allows water to flow into the bowl. Luckily this is a problem which can easily be fixed by our experts.

Geyser

Geysers are most probably one of the things within a home which could cause a lot of damage as it could be the home’s most potent “silent missile”. They are largely forgotten until trouble strikes.

The most common problems people encounter with geysers include:

No hot water; Too little hot water; Noise from within the tank; Leaks; And of course, a so-called bust geyser, which normally results in costly flooding of areas within the home. A thorough check of the geyser will be conducted to ensure that no faults exist.

outdoors

The inspection goes outdoors, and the following is checked:

Outside Hose Bibs; Pressure Reducing Valve

The reason for the outdoor inspection is to ensure that pipes are tightly sealed, don’t leak and lead away from a home instead of following along the outside wall. While we’re there, we also inspect the pressure reducing valve, which can save water, curb the risk of water leaks and extend the life of the plumbing system.
