About to engage in major remodel. Before laying out the new floors and repairing radiant heat, I'd like to inspect the plumbing.
Does anyone have any recommendation for a good and reliable drain inspection company? (you can email them directly to me if you don't want to post names here)
Do these companies also perform repairs or is it better to deal with a company specialized in detection and then a plumber for repairs?
Also: can they inspect the domestic water lines too?
Many thanks in advance for any recommendation you might have on this topic.
For the sewer lines, I would recommend the video camera services of Roto Rooter. I think it's under $300.
For the domestic water, I would recommend putting a new domestic water line in your slab. I've seen this done with another eichler. Since your radiant heat is dead, you can jackhammer new routes in your slab and lay the new pipe in the slab. The original copper pipes are probably laying just below the slab and are subject to corrosion and possible leaks. If you abandonded these and lay new copper lines in, you will be good to go for another 50 years or more. If you want to learn more, search on "cathodic protection" on this forum.
