Mr. Rooter Plumbing, an Austin, Texas-based company offering premium plumbing repairs to residents of Pflugerville, Round Rock, Cedar Park and Georgetown, has been emphasizing the importance of hiring plumbing inspection professionals, ensuring customers that their plumbers bring attention to issues before they have a chance to do serious damage to property.
“Normal wear and tear, as well as the simple settling of a home, can wreak havoc on pipes and other plumbing fixtures, and as rust and corrosion settle into older, galvanized pipes, it can lead to discolored water and odd odors from faucets,” explains Brett Bidwell, franchise owner of Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Austin. “Built-up grease, hair and other dirt in the pipes will coagulate and make it difficult for wastewater to drain properly out of a house, and it’s for all these reasons that our plumbing services specialists bring attention to problems before they evolve into catastrophes.”

Plumbing inspections, says Bidwell, are an essential part of a home’s regular maintenance plan, and as such, Mr. Rooter representatives routinely take customers through the process of the job, informing them which of their specialists will be performing the inspection while providing them with a rough idea of what the inspection will cost. While many homeowners ignore plumbing inspections as they may feel it is a waste of money – or that it may reveal expensive repairs that need to be made – Mr. Rooter representatives constantly point out to Austin customers how a single dripping faucet can waste several gallons of water every day, resulting in higher-than-average water bills.
What’s more, a single broken pipe in a wall or ceiling can cause tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of damage in just minutes, which can lead to rugs, wood floors, drywall and priceless possessions needing to be replaced.
A professional plumbing inspection encompasses a thorough review of a home’s plumbing to investigate its current condition, with Mr. Rooter plumbers focusing on eight major areas during the service: pipes inside the home, pipes outside the home, water heaters, toilets, bathtubs, showers, sinks and faucets. Mr. Rooter commonly suggests to customers that a plumbing inspection be conducted in a home at least every two years, and that if a home is older than 40 years and hasn’t had its plumbing replaced, an annual inspection will be more fruitful.
“A thorough plumbing inspection, performed by a licensed plumber, can alert homeowners to early warning signs of impending failures,” adds Bidwell. “Every exposed water line and connection is inspected for leaks and signs of wear or corrosion when these inspections are performed by Mr. Rooter experts, as is every faucet, spigot and valve inside and outside of the home. If a technician detects anything that needs attention, we provide a cost evaluation for any required repairs.
“To say Mr. Rooter offers a comprehensive solution to plumbing problems is indeed something of an understatement.”
In addition to premium plumbing inspections, Mr. Rooter of Austin also handles water heater services, sewer system backups, emergency plumber services, general plumbing repairs, drain cleaning, sewer camera inspections, residential rooter work, commercial hydrojetting and more.
