Buying a new home is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful. If you’ve found the house of your dreams in the Middletown area, don’t forget to cover all the bases to avoid more stress down the road caused by major plumbing problems. Here are a few things you can check for when looking at potential homes:
Get a Plumbing Inspection to Look for Deeper Problems
Even if you’ve checked all of these things, your best bet is to have a licensed plumber inspect the home before you close on it. A general inspector will do a visual inspection of fixtures, but a plumber can go much deeper.
A plumber can do a video inspection of the underground sewer pipe, which may be a good idea in older homes with clay or concrete sewer pipes. They can also tell you what type of piping is in the house and whether any of it is a known risk for failure. They’ll check your meter, outside hose bibs and gutters, and can detect signs of leakage in crawl spaces and basements that you may have missed.
Call Putman Plumbing before you buy – so you’re not regretting your purchase after it’s too late.
