Buying a house is considered a life-long investment. Inspection before buying a new home is crucial, whether it is electricity or plumbing, everything needs to be inspected! While a certified home inspector will likely be assigned to review the condition of your future home, these professionals don’t look at plumbing in-depth.
For a thorough plumbing report, you will need to be accompanied by a professional and trusted plumber who will inspect future problems. Here are the common problems you should be aware of before purchasing a home:
• Leaky toilets- always check if they are in good conditions or if they leak from the sides.
• Brown ceiling stains- check with the real estate agent if you see any brown ceiling, see if there is anything that can be done to prevent this type of problem.
• Replacing the water heater- with time water heaters become redundant and cost more money on your electricity than providing hot water, so better consider replacing it when moving in.
• Slow drainage- to know if the drains are functioning well, fill the sink or tub with water and see how it flows.
There it goes, now you can buy your house!
