The Inspection Process:

You've found what you think is that perfect home or you've connected with that perfect buyer. So you order an inspection to make sure that all of the plumbing is in good working order.  Homebuyer inspections are the rule these days. Sometimes we are called in to do a more thorough follow up inspection. Unfortunately, this often happens after the home has already been purchased.

When buying or selling a home, it is important to make sure all the plumbing is in good order. The last thing you want to do is move into a house that doesn’t have hot water or has a horrific smell every time you flush the toilet. At Plumb Doctor, LLC, we do plumbing inspections for any situation and give you the honest truth about the given situation.

A thorough inspection process

Our Indianapolis plumbing inspections are thorough enough that will assure any buyer or seller of a property that their systems are in good working order.

A few of the potential issues that we would look for include:



We will look for deteriorating lines and check for potential problems with a sewer camera.  You'll notice a few things like:

  • A damp yard with foul odors

  • Backed up drains throughout the house

  • Flooding or water spots in your basement.




Water heaters in Indianapolis have a lifespan of about ten years, give or take a year or two depending on certain variables. We will help you to:

  • Understand how much life span the water heater might have left.

  • Explain to you whether there might be problems with the location of the water heater

  • Establish if the water heater needs to be replaced.



Leaks at the bottom of toilets seem to always go unnoticed. There are plenty of problems that can occur from these leaks such as:

Don't let something so obvious slip through the cracks, when it is something that can be so easily discovered in an inspection.

Plumbing with a common sense approach to inspections

There are many other aspects that go into a full plumbing inspection and hopefully we don’t find anything too major. But we won’t sugar coat anything; we will tell you how it is so you can make the most educated choice when buying or selling a home.
