Plumbing System

Plumbing SystemProblems with the plumbing system can be a real hassle, and sometimes they can be quite serious. But there’s a way to reduce the chances of these issues happening in your home—regular plumbing inspections.

Certain areas in your home need more attention than others, like your kitchen and bathroom. By inspecting these areas regularly, you can prevent plumbing problems from becoming major headaches. If you ever face an urgent plumbing issue, don’t hesitate to call an emergency plumber.

Inspecting Your Plumbing System

For a thorough plumbing inspection, here are the areas to focus on:


Faucets: These are found in your sink, tub, and shower. They get a lot of use, so check for wear and tear. Look out for leaks, even tiny ones, as they can turn into big problems.

Drains: These handle all the yucky stuff. Keep an eye out for clogs and clean the drain traps to prevent future blockages.

Toilets: Test the flushing mechanism to make sure it stops the flow of water when it should. If your toilet wobbles when you sit on it, the wax ring holding it in place might need replacing.

Sink Drains: Like bathroom drains, these can get clogged. Check the strainer and p-trap for any blockages. If you’re not confident working with plumbing fixtures, it’s best to call a plumber in Myrtle Beach.

Faucets: The kitchen faucet gets a lot of use and is prone to breakdowns. Check for leaks when you turn it off. Even small leaks can waste a lot of water.

Shutoff Valves: These control the water supply to your sink faucet, fridge, and dishwasher. If they don’t completely shut off the water, they need replacing.

Garbage Disposal: Since it deals with food waste, it needs frequent inspection. If you notice foul odors, something might be amiss.

Dishwasher: Observe it while it’s running. Slow filling or draining could indicate an issue.

Refrigerator: If you use the ice maker or dispenser, check the water supply hose for any problems.

Septic and Sewer: Regular maintenance is crucial here. Take care of your septic system, main sewer, and vent pipes to prevent major problems.

Around Your House:

Even though these areas are less prone to problems, it’s still a good idea to include them in your inspections:

  • Water Heater
  • Branch Shutoff Valves
  • Sump Pump
  • Outdoor Hose Spigots
  • Irrigation System
  • Washing Machine
