Even though it can be easily overlooked, a home’s plumbing system is a cornerstone of comfort and convenience. A home plumbing inspection completed by a licensed plumber can save homeowners from unexpected troubles and expenses down the line.
Ensure your plumbing system is running well by scheduling a home plumbing inspection with one of Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air’s trained plumbers. They can handle that and more. A Dixie plumber will diagnose and repair any plumbing problem you may have, including water heater malfunctions or leaky faucets.
It’s truly amazing how loud a faucet drip can sound. We’ve all heard a drop of water falling into the sink while lying in bed and unable to sleep. It’s annoying and never ending. You wake up, go to the bathroom, and turn the faucet handle tighter to stop the drip. You might succeed at first, but in time, you won’t be able to tighten the handle properly.
Drip, drip, drip.
A dripping faucet is annoying and could become very costly. For example, if your faucet is leaking at a usual rate of 10 drops per minute. It could be wasting almost three gallons per day and nearly 400 gallons per year. A running toilet can waste almost 200 gallons a day. Don’t even think about a water pipe that is leaking. In just one day, almost 1,000 gallons of water can be wasted due to a small pipe leak. Besides the high water bill, imagine the outcome if the pipe is inside your home’s floor or wall.
Why A Licensed Plumber Is Important
A licensed plumber has the tools to look behind the scenes of your plumbing system, assessing both the visible and the invisible. He or she also has the knowledge to identify potential trouble spots, such as corroded pipes, leaks, and faulty connections. By quickly addressing these concerns, you’ll be able to prevent minor issues from evolving into extensive, costly repairs.
Gaining peace of mind is the biggest advantage to having a professional plumbing inspection. You’ll know your plumbing system is operating at its best, reducing the risk of sudden breakdowns or emergencies. Plus, potential home buyers can benefit from plumbing inspections by getting a better picture of a property’s condition.
Timely plumbing inspections can also provide a great return on investment in the long run. Identifying and repairing minor leaks promptly can prevent wasted water and lower utility bills. Plus, detecting hidden issues like slow leaks or water pressure irregularities can prevent structural damage, mold growth, and water-related deterioration that could otherwise be very costly to restore.

Handy water conservation tips:
1. Run the dishwasher and washing machine only when full; no partial loads.
2. Don’t throw unused water down the drain; use it for plant watering.
3. If you must water your lawn, do it in the early morning or evening. Remember to turn off your sprinkler system when it rains.
4. Limit your time in the shower from 5 to 10 minutes, tops. Long showers waste an incredible amount of water.
