Home Buyers Plumbing Checklist


Are you in the process of buying a home or are you trying to sell your home? If you are going through this process, then you know that a home inspection is a must before you are able to do either! Buying a home can be time-consuming and stressful, but we’re here to help! Below is a plumbing checklist for homebuyers.

 

  • Be sure to flush all of the toilets in each bathroom. This will allow you to see if the toilets have a weak flush, if it runs for too long,or if there are any leaks or any other potential issues.
  • Find out the age of the water lines and verify that the type of pipe that is installed. Some pipes have to be replaced after a certain amount of time.
  • Make sure each fixture has a good flow. This will be the only way you can figure out if anything needs some work.
  • Make sure all of the valves shut off properly. This is important because, during an emergency, you need to be sure that you are able to shut off the water supply.
  • Be sure to check the basements and crawl spaces that tend to be overlooked during a home walk-through. Be sure to inspect all areas! Check for water damage, leaking pipes, or pipes that need to be repaired.
  • Check and make sure that no hose bibs leaked and went undetected! This could possibly cause property damage – which is not good!
  • Check drains and downspouts for blockage. Sometimes debris from the roof or leaves can cause a blockage in the discharge line running away from the house. If your rain drainage systems fail, rainwater can cause damage or unwanted rodents. Yuck!

 

Purchasing a home is a big investment. If you are unsure if the plumbing needs works, before you commit to the house, schedule a certified plumber to inspect it for you.
