Free Home Inspection and 6 Months Free Home Warranty

What Is a Home Inspection?

  • A home inspection is a free service we offer our customers when we are on-site.
  • During this inspection, our experienced tradespeople will take a look over the plumbing fixtures and appliances at your home, provide you with useful information such as emergency isolation points, conduct a free water pressure test* and let you know of any recommended maintenance requirements including providing a fixed price quote for the work for your consideration.   
  • A home inspection generally takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Benefits of a Home Inspection include

  • Free Water Tight Canberra 6 Month Home Guarantee **See below for further details
  • Free water pressure test*
  • Know how to isolate cold water, hot water and gas in an emergency situation
  • Understand your home’s plumbing maintenance and potential future costs

Our Promise to You

  • We will provide you with a quote to complete all recommended work today or in the future
  • We will provide you with honest recommendations only
  • All recommended maintenance will be genuine and backed up by evidence
  • No Pressure or pushy sales. We are not “used car salesman”. We will let you know our recommendations and leave all decisions up to you.

**6 Month Home Guarantee

If your plumbing fails within 6 months of us marking an item as Passed on our free home inspection, we will attend to the site to repair the issue and waive the Site Assessment / Service call fee, saving you $115 dollars, as we will treat the job as a continuation of the original works.

* Water Pressure Test is provided for free only if an accessible gauge test point exists such as a hose tap. If a test point requires pipework alterations or fixture dismantling additional costs may apply.

Note – Parts of the inspection may be skipped when access is restricted or time is exceeding the allowed 15 minutes.

Note – The free home inspection is available on the day of a site assessment / other works only. Please speak to your tradesperson for more information on this service.

I am very happy with the work done by Watertight. I was especially impressed with Ryan, he was the most honest and transparent tradie I've ever had. It was clear he took pride in his work, and despite a difficult install he did a good job. I like to ask lots of questions and see what's happening and was happy to put up with me and keep me in the loop. Thanks!

Watertight Canberra was very responsive to a request for assistance to locate and fix a leaking pipe. We were fortunate to have Josh who was punctual, professional, friendly and hard working. Josh worked through a complex situation with the building material and location of pipes and was able to rectify the situation. We are very happy with the quality of work, professionalism and the competitively priced outcome of work completed. We will definitely use Watertight Canberra for any future plumbing needs and highly recommend this business!

Brayden was really professional, told me about the work quoted, and went out of his way to get a new water heater installed for me on the same day. Couldn't ask for more. Will definitely call Water Tight next time I need a plumber.
