I live in a state that requires drivers to get their cars inspected each and every year. Some people believe this is just a money grab so the state can take even more of your hard-earned money. While I do not necessarily disagree with that, I also believe there is some merit to this law. It gives the driver a chance to have a licensed mechanic look at the vehicle. If it isn’t safe, the mechanic will not pass it and can suggest the best path to repairing it. Sometimes the mechanic will just do some simple things to make the automobile run more smoothly. This is similar to how a plumber can conduct a pipe cleaning to make the water in a home run more freely. It is also similar to having an HVAC technician look at your heater or air conditioner. In the end, it is nice having an expert look at your system and how it is currently operating. Personally, I think the plumbing examination along with the pipe cleaning is essential to owning a solid home. Many people do not realize when their home is at risk. If you live in a colder climate, you may be at risk of having a pipe freeze. If a portion of your pipe is obstructed in some way, that slows the water rate down which can lead to the water freezing more easily. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather have a plumber come to my house once in awhile rather than having a contractor rebuild part of my house after a pipe freezes.
