Expert Plumbing System Checks in Kansas City


Since most of your plumbing system is invisible, you may wonder how you can know if your plumbing is bad. Prevention is always better than reaction, especially when it involves plumbing emergencies in your home. Water damage is not only frustrating, but it can be costly. Plumbing System Checks can help you understand the health of your system. Some of the most common plumbing issues that can be hard on your home plumbing system are:

Water pressure

Too high – can cause blowouts or piper bursts. Indicators can be banging pipes, running toilets, or dripping faucets. Too low – this can mean that there are other problems in your system like plumbing blockages or water leaks.

Water Heater Build-up

Over time, sediment and minerals can build up creating a sludge at the bottom of the tank. This will form an insulating layer above the burner making it more difficult to heat up the water in your tank.

Sump pump failure

Switch failures are the leading mechanical cause of sump pump problems. When the switch is not working correctly, the float is ineffective.

Hard water

Over 85% of U.S. homes have hard water. Over time, hard water can cause clogged or corroded pipes, poor water heater efficiency, water stains, odor and bad tasting water.

Plumbing System Checks help avoid frustrating plumbing emergencies and make sure your system can handle the demands of your household. All A.B. May Home Warranties and Service Plans include them, so there is no charge for the appointment. Taking a closer look at your home systems helps prevent emergency repairs and will keep your home running smoothly.

We designed our Plumbing System Checks to make sure your major plumbing components are safe and functioning correctly. The appointment lasts around 60-90 minutes.

What we check

During a Plumbing System Check, your technician will check your:

  • Water heater: We will help you understand the condition of your tank, valves, ventilation, and piping. Also, we flush your water heater, which can improve performance and efficiency. (Excludes tankless and powervent water heaters.)
  • Water lines: We will measure your water pressure and evaluate the condition of your main lines, calcium buildup, flow, and anchoring.
  • Sump pump: We will make sure your sump pump is ready for heavy rain by checking the pit, valve, pump, and piping. We’ll check for other features on your model, too.
  • Water hardness: Have you ever wondered how hard your water is? We will measure the minerals dissolved in your water and tell you how hard it is. If your water is especially hard, it may cause mineral buildup in your water lines and appliances.
