The Importance of a Pre-Purchase Plumbing Inspection
When buying a property, there are several things to consider, and many inspections to carry out. You want to know whether the house if free of pests, all installations are in good working condition; there is no damage to walls and ceilings of flour, etc. But most people neglect to get a plumbing inspection done. This omission happens because the plumbing installations are not as visible as many other installations in the house.
A plumbing inspection is essential before you finally decide to put your signature on the agreement. At SPS Plumbers Inner West, we remind our clients who intend to buy a new home to get the entire plumbing system inspected. Here we explain the reasons why it is necessary.
Purchasing a house means using a big chunk of your savings used for this major investment. You may want to save some money during this time. To avoid additional expenses that aren’t an immediate requirement, you may avoid the plumbing inspection, and many property buyers commit this mistake. Small repairs cost less, but they can turn into bigger problems and become expensive later on.
A plumbing inspection during the pre-purchase period gives you a clear idea about the health of the plumbing system of the house. An older house with old plumbing features can become an additional expense. These issues need consideration before you make your decision.
Saves You Trouble
A plumbing inspection reveals all about the sewer lines, leakages, water damage, water heater, showers, etc. Small repairs like leakages here and there can be fixed in a matter of a day. However, blocked and corroded drains require investigation with equipment like CCTV drain cameras to determine the damages. Sometimes, excavation and pipe replacement may be needed, and all of these become time-consuming and expensive too.
Plumbing repairs often take a heavy toll on your time. For major repairs, you need to find and hire an experienced plumber, identify the scope of the work, get and check the quote, decide a budget, and get the repairs completed. All these activities need your precious time because the repairs take place on your property.
It will give you peace of mind and save a lot of trouble if you get a plumbing inspection done by an expert plumber, before purchasing a house. It is immaterial whether the purchase deal goes through or not, but you a clear idea of what you may be required to face.
