Plumbing Inspection & Maintenance

Plumbing inspections are an essential part of long-term maintenance for any residence. After years of use, the plumbing for Sarasota homes is no longer in top condition. There may be rust, corrosion, hard water buildup, or forming clogs. However, because your plumbing is hidden behind the walls, keeping an eye on the systems on your own is tough.

Whether you think there might be something wrong with your pipes or just want a health check-up, a plumbing inspection and maintenance visit is a good idea in many different situations:

Buying a house
Preparing a home for renters
Experiencing systemic plumbing problems
Considering a plumbing remodel or upgrade
Taking care of long-term plumbing maintenance
Suspect water quality issues

Merit Plumbing can take care of your plumbing inspection and maintenance needs.

Sarasota Plumbing Inspection Services Details

What happens during a plumbing inspection service? Your plumbing team will closely examine each important section of your plumbing using external and internal observations. They will test your faucets and handles, valves and shut-offs, toilets and tank systems, water pressure, and drain speed. If there is reason for concern, they may recommend an internal pipe inspection to identify issues inside the pipes.

Plumbing inspections typically include:

  • The water main
  • All shut-off valves
  • Water pressure and hardness
  • Faucets, handles, and shower heads
  • All drains
  • Toilets and tank systems
  • Pressure vacuum breaker and pressure-reducing valve
  • Clean-outs
  • Water heater performance and scale buildup
  • Garbage disposal
  • Exterior spigots and features

Free Water Quality Test with Every Service

In addition to a full inspection of your pipes, faucets, toilets, and drains, Merit Plumbing also performs a free water quality test with every service. Water quality is an important matter in Sarasota, FL, as contaminated water can threaten your family’s health. A quick test will determine the level of chlorine, water hardness and PH.

If any of your levels are out of line with your desired water quality, Merit Plumbing can help you to upgrade your water filtration system to secure clean water throughout the house from every tap.
