Have you bought a new property? Or Just need a check up?

Many new homebuyers find out too late that their dream home is riddled with water leakage or a poor plumbing system. In fact, 44% of consumers call a plumber within one year of purchasing a home. To avoid such unexpected and costly problems, we recommend that you visually inspect any potential home for problems and offer these helpful tips:

Sewer Inspection
If you are planning to purchase a home, doing a video inspection of the underground sewer pipe may be a good idea, especially in older homes with clay or concrete sewer pipes. The inspection will reveal any flaws with the sewer before you buy and inherit a problem. The cost of repairing or replacing an underground sewer may cost many thousands of dollars making a relatively inexpensive camera inspection a good investment.

Standing Water

Standing water is another common problem resulting from leaky or broken pipes. Excess water in a yard may be coming from a damaged sewer line and may contain waste from the home. Standing water is not healthy for children or pets, and is a breeding ground for insects and germs. Inspect the yard for areas that are too wet and with unusual plant or grass growth.

Miscellaneous

  • Check to make sure that the garbage disposal and dishwasher connections are tight and leak free.
  • Survey the inside of cabinets (with a flashlight) for signs of water damage, warped cabinet bottom or stains. Make sure that traps and supply tubes are not leaking.
  • Check washing machine hoses for rupture. Turn valves on and off to test for leaks.

Water Heater

Check the date of the water heater. Any heater over 15 years old is a candidate to be replaced. A rusty water tank is a sign of pending problems.

If you need a CCTV camera inspection of pipework than call us at Curl Curl Plumbing on 9907 6077. We also do free 21pt plumbing inspectionswith all jobs to check out the plumbing fixtures of your home or potential home.
