Detailed Plumbing Investigations and Reporting
Independent Plumbing Inspections is a completely independent specialist plumbing investigating and reporting company servicing domestic, commercial and industrial sectors. Your report is prepared by a licensed plumber. Mark is also a certified infrared thermographer and member of the Infraspection Institute.
We can provide comprehensive independent reports detailing all plumbing issues, the reports include photographs of all items included.
Every report is tailored to your specific needs and requirements and reports can target one or many plumbing problems or areas of concern.
Some examples of the issues we can prepare reports for include non compliant plumbing works, leaks in bathrooms, roofs, drainage, water leaks and gas safety issues.
Pre plaster plumbing inspections and pre handover plumbing inspections are conducted to identify all plumbing problems, enabling all plumbing issues are rectified before final payment has been made.
An infrared building inspection can reveal many hidden issues in a building that would not be visible to the naked eye. The use of thermal imaging makes it possible to detect water leaks behind plaster ceilings, shower recesses, concrete slabs or interior walls, without the need for destruction.
The inspection can be used to detect the following:
hidden water problems
missing or failing insulation
areas of energy loss
Using the latest thermal imaging technology we can very accurately discover the location of leaks previously only found by removing tiles or demolishing walls or lifting the floor substrata.
Inspection enables a comprehensive look at the condition of plumbing pipes, junctions and bends. The inspection can identify tree root intrusions, broken pipes, drains holding water and other abnormalities within the plumbing.
Using the information we can supply a detailed report, photos and video footage.
The CCTV inspection can be used to detect the following:
condition of pipes, junctions and bends
tree root damage
obstructions in the pipes
Poorly laid drains
mapping your existing pipes
Independent Plumbing Inspections perform CCTV inspections on new or existing building.
Before you dig or excavate, you must consider what lies beneath! Buried services such as electricity, gas, water and comunications lines require expert detection. Detection of services can prevent major accidents, serious personal injuries and expensive bills.
The location equipment can be used to find the following:
water pipes and drains

We can locate and mark the position of Power cables, gas services, water services, telstra cables as well as storm water and sewer pipes.
Gas Safety and Carbon Monoxide Testing
All property owners should have their heaters and gas appliances tested for Carbon Monoxide by a qualified plumber at least once every 2 years as reccommended by Energy Safe Victoria. Carbon Monoxide is a poisonous gas that has no taste or smell and cannot be seen. Prolonged exposure to high levels of Carbon Monoxide can cause long-term health effects such as heart disease and brain damage and has resulted in unnecessary deaths.
