Are your pipes running A-Okay?
Other leaks that might not be detectable by a layperson can be in the walls, floors or ceilings. An annual inspection is best done in the spring in places where the winters are cold. An inspection scheduled then will catch any pipes that have sprung a leak due to the freeze-thaw cycle. It’s a good idea to do the inspections during the Spring even in places where the winters are fairly mild. Pipes have been known to burst even when the temperature only drops to about 50 degrees or so.
A homeowner might want to set up a maintenance agreement with a plumbing contractor. The homeowner will pay a monthly fee and the plumber will come on a yearly or twice yearly schedule to check the plumbing and perform troubleshooting. The homeowner also gets a discount on repairs and is given priority in case of emergencies. The plumber of course, needs to be licensed, insured, professional and be up to date on any building codes in the area.
