How Often Should I Have My Pipes Inspected?

To have your pipes inspected, you need to know that there are two basic types of inspections. One is for a potential problem, and the other is to determine if there’s any damage to the system or parts of it. Most people only think about their plumbing when something goes wrong. However, it’s important that you regularly check on your pipes so they work as efficiently as possible. If you suspect a clog or leak, you should look for signs of a problem as soon as possible:

Most people only think about their plumbing when something goes wrong. They don’t realize that the cost of a plumber is much higher than an inspection, meaning you can save money by having your pipes inspected regularly and replacing any parts that need to be replaced. If you have an inspection done regularly, the chances are good it won’t fail at all because everything will be in good working order.
Inspections are also a great way to know if there are any problems with your pipes without having to hire a plumber every time something goes wrong or gets clogged up. If you find out what needs fixing beforehand, then it will make things easier when it comes down to fixing them yourself (or getting someone else to fix them).


In most cases, you shouldn’t need to inspect your pipes until you have a problem.
In most cases, you shouldn’t need to inspect your pipes until you have a problem. If it’s been a few years since you had your pipes inspected and there aren’t any problems, there’s probably no need for an inspection at all.
In general:

  • If your home is older than 30 years old, have the system inspected once every 10 years by a professional plumber.
  • If your home was built within the last 20 years (or if you are unsure of its age), have the system inspected once every 5 years by a professional plumber.


However, if you suspect a clog or leak, you should look for signs of a problem as soon as possible.
However, if you suspect a clog or leak, you should look for signs of a problem as soon as possible. Signs of potential issues include:

  • Water pooling in the house
  • A foul smell
  • Wet spots on walls or floor that are not from recent flooding


Signs of a potential issue include:
If you notice any of the following signs, it may be time to have your pipes inspected:

  • Water pooling in the house
  • A foul smell coming from drains and toilets
  • Wet spots on walls or floors that don't come off with a towel or mop (this could mean leaks)
  • Gurgling sinks or drains when there's no one using water in that area (signs of clogs)
  • Strange noises coming from the pipes or drains, such as banging or squeaking sounds while running water; metal-on-metal scraping sounds; rushing air flowing through pipes
If you experience either of these issues during your inspection (or any other), let us know ASAP so we can get on the case straight away!


You should generally contact your plumber at the first sign of a leak or clog.
If you don't have a plumber on hand and you're experiencing an issue with your plumbing, such as a leak or clog, it's best to call a professional. However, if you do have a plumber at the ready and they've inspected your pipes in the past year or so (or even if they haven't), it's still important to get another inspection every few years. This will keep your home safe and ensure that there are no damages occurring under the surface that could cause bigger problems down the road.
If there is an issue with the plumbing in your home—and most homes have some sort of problem—it should be fixed as soon as possible. Not only does this ensure your own comfort and safety but also prevents damage from happening elsewhere within your house.


If you’re concerned that your pipes might be leaking or clogged, it’s best to contact a plumber as soon as possible. You never know when something could go wrong with your plumbing system and cause serious damage to your home or property. If you have any questions about what signs of a leak look like, give us a call! We’re happy to help out!
