Companies carry out underground plumbing inspections to make sure the plumbing system in a home is compliant, safe, and in good working condition. This vital inspection helps identify existing issues and spot potential threats before escalating.  Let’s review some of the critical aspects of the Underground Plumbing Inspection process.

  • What do Underground Plumbing Inspection usually involve?
  • Why are they so crucial to the safety of homeowners and residents?
  • How does Fielda make Underground Plumbing Inspections easier and more efficient?

What do Underground Plumbing Inspection include: These inspections include a detailed review of water service piping, drainpipes, water closets, cleanouts, backwater valves, and gas piping. For instance, inspectors check the location and pipe specifications of cleanouts to ensure compliance with regulations. Inspectors conduct drain and vent tests to check for potential loss of water. They also audit Water Closets (WCs) to ensure that the number of WCs on a single horizontal branch or drain is not more than allowed according to local codes. Finally, they check plumbing fixtures and piping material and test for clogs, leaks, damage, or corrosion. 

Why are these inspections essential: Unless regular underground plumbing inspections are conducted, water service and drain systems can develop leaks, cracks, and blocks. These can go unnoticed until they cause a crisis. Plumbing-related problems could include flooding, loss of water, faulty water billing, disruption to supply, and drainage clogging. These can result in inconvenience to residents and pose health risks and damage to building infrastructure. Timely underground plumbing inspections help identify and fix problems early and save costs of expensive repairs later.
