Plumbing Inspections

Presale Home Plumbing Inspections – We’ll inspect the plumbing system of a home before you buy it. We’ll look for current plumbing problems that have gone ignored, as well as early signs of potential plumbing issues in the future.

Presale Home Plumbing Inspection Checklist

Before you buy a home, we’ll thoroughly perform a:

Faucet Inspection

Toilet Inspection

Water Heater Inspection

Outdoor Faucet Inspection

Drain Inspection

Caulk Seal Inspection

Branch Shutoff Valve Inspection

Waterline Inspection

Sewer Inspection

Kitchen Plumbing Inspection

Sump Pump Inspection

Water Pressure Check

We’ll go through a thorough checklist to find current problems, future problems, and strong negotiation points. Your home is likely your most valuable possession, and you want to make sure that you’re not going to find costly plumbing mistakes and easily avoidable maintenance issues. The last thing that you want on moving day is to call a plumber.

Annual Plumbing Inspections

We’ll perform an Annual Home Plumbing Inspection where we perform the same inspections as a Presale Home Inspection while offering suggestions on maintenance and up-and-coming repairs and replacements to prepare for. Disappointment and frustration come from having the wrong expectations. You can avoid a costly emergency service call by prevention and preparation.

Drain Camera Plumbing Inspections

Drain clogs and blockages can happen slowly over time. It’s not uncommon for a hollow pipe to become a solid cylinder, filled with solid mineral and waste deposits. A Drain Camera Inspection will locate drain clogs and blockages and reveal damaged and broken pipes.

Great service at an affordable price. I had three services with them so far, and they are always on time at the scheduled service time. The service technician explains in detail with a clear break down of the job to be understood easily. At the end of service, they test their work that service has been done correctly. They havebeen truly great service with integrity. I highly recommend their service.

I’ve had the pleasure to deal with Jonathan on multiple occasions. Most recently during a pre-purchase plumbing inspection. He’s very knowledgeable, has great work ethics and I never hesitate to refer him and John The Plumber to anyone.

Jonathan did a fabulous job at a great price. We had three jobs done at our new house, and his quote came in at less than half of our previous quote from a major competitor. Not only did he fix everything in a timely manner, but he gave us a tour of the plumbing in our new house as I was a bit intimidated by the age of the house ( over 50 years). He gave us great peace of mind by pointing out the things to look out for and the things not to worry about. What touched me most and marked him as service above and beyond was when he asked my husband (who was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s) if he felt comfortable operating the valves he had chosen and had him try them to be sure. So appreciated! As an aside, Jonathan showed he is a man of many skills as I was cooking a Moroccan stew while they were visiting. He suggested adding an apricot. Please let Jonathan know that it was a beautiful addition to the dish and it was a great success :).

David was our plumber. He did an amazing job, gave me more then a fair price, and came within an hour of me calling john the plumber’s phone number. David described what needed to be done and how much it would cost in advance, which was amazing! Best service that I could’ve asked for. Thank you so much, David!! I will definitely call him again when needed, 10 out of 10 recommended.

I selected John The Plumber based on their reviews, and it was a good decision! I needed to replace an old washer, install a new one, and install a drain to the main pipe (didn’t like it draining into the sink). David and Shane were very skilled, efficient, and professional and highlighted a few things to watch for in the future (based on the current house plumbing). Very happy with the service. Recommend 100%! Will use in the future again.
