How to Avoid
Buying a Property
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:
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 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.
- 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.
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.
