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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
