You probably don't think about pipes as much as a plumber in Norwalk, CT, from JNR Plumbing does. However, it's not a good idea to completely forget about your pipes. In fact, there are many benefits you can enjoy when being proactive about your pipes. Below, we offer some advice about when you should schedule a pipe inspection.
You Have Older Pipes
You will be more likely to have emergency plumbing situations for your pipes if they are older. As a general rule, regular inspections should be scheduled if your underground pipes were installed before the 1980s, or if they are cast iron. This is a material that tends to corrode over time.
You Recently Moved Into Your Home
It's safe to assume one of the last things you'll want to deal with as a new homeowner is plumbing repairs because of pipe issues. Even if a home inspection was done as part of the home-buying process, your water and sewer lines may not have been properly inspected. An inspection can give you clear documentation of the condition of your pipes.
You Have Mature Trees on Your Property
Tree roots can cause everything from slow drains to full blockages. If your property has mature trees, call a plumber from our team to perform an inspection so issues with tree root intrusions can be discovered and dealt with early.
You Are Seeing Signs of Pipe Problems
You will also want to schedule a pipe inspection if you're already seeing signs of a problem. Common signs to look for include:
- Slow drains
- Unusual drain odors
- Frequent backups
- Higher-than-usual water bills
