Pre Purchase Home Plumbing Inspections

Many of todays home buyers have a home inspection done prior to closing a house purchase in the Seattle area. Smart Idea! But although home inspectors do a good overall job

they miss many plumbing issues because they are not trained as a plumber. Codes change and what was allowed in prior years is no longer valid.

For instance 1 1/2" pipe was common for washing machine drains in the past but todays modern washers put out more gallons per minute on the drain

cycle and will overwelm the smaller line. Also the pipe material itself has changed from steel to plastic, and steel can rust inside slowing the drain

even more. This is just one example, the side sewer line from the home needs to be looked at as well many times it is overlooked and many a new home owner

has found themselfs with a total replacement needed to the tune of $20K when a sewer camera inspection could have saved them the surprise. We recommend

a complete plumbing inspection on the home not only the drains but the water supply lines as well. We will camera the sewer line and make a dvd for the customer

to use as evidence of it's condition. We inspect all the smaller lines tubs,sinks,showers etc. A new trend we have seen lately in Seattle is people actually painting the drain pipes

black to make them seem new or newer, to disguise the rust that showed they where failing. We offer just doing the sewer line or the whole house your choice!
