Benefits of a Plumbing Inspection for New Homeowners
Anyone who has ever bought a house knows that as soon as they moves into the house, something inevitably goes wrong. A very expensive, but very preventable, mishap that most homeowners experience is with their plumbing. Since the plumbing is out of sight, it is not often addressed when the new homeowner purchases his house.
Having a plumbing inspection should be at the top of every homeowner’s priority list because it can potentially save the homeowner hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of dollars. It is best to have an inspection done prior to purchasing a house. A licensed plumber will be able to tell if the hot water heater is going to expire soon, if the water softening system is not working properly, if a pipe is getting ready to burst, or any other plumbing issues that he sees. By knowing the plumbing problems of the house, the potential homeowner can choose to forego purchasing that particular house, or he can negotiate with the seller to either fix the problems or reduce the asking price. Either way, the potential homeowner saves time and a lot of money.
A plumbing inspection can help the homeowner save money by reporting any leaks in the plumbing. A leak may seem like a small thing, but over the course of a year it can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water. This is not only a waste of water, but a waste of money, as well. The licensed plumbing technician can also spot areas whereby water can be conserved throughout the house, saving the homeowner hundreds of dollars a year.
Getting a plumbing inspection should be at the top of everyone’s to-do list. It saves money, time, and heartache. It is a simple thing that can make a big difference to the homeowner.
