Are you buying a new home? Inspect the Plumbing!Investing in a complete plumbing system inspection before buying a home could be one of the best investments you’ll ever make!
A home inspection is part of the home buying process. However, a complete, top to bottom plumbing inspection is not. Plumbing problems are usually the hardest and most costly problems to fix. Don’t get caught buying someone else’s problems.
Here are just a few of the things that a traditional home inspection doesn’t cover, but Grand Lake Plumbing & Heating insists upon:
A Sewer Camera InspectionVideo camera inspection is the only way of knowing whether or not you have a tree root infestation in the main sewer line. Waste water maybe flow OK for a while, but there could be a very expensive problem waiting to happen just below the surface of the lawn.
Water Meter and ValvesThe water meter and valves are critical to safe water distribution to your new home. Grand Lake Plumbing & Heating will “exercise” all of the valves to make sure everything is working properly and not ready to break open.
Water Heater InspectionWe’ll check the water heater for signs of corrosion. A water heater usually lasts about 8 to 10 years. If it hasn’t been properly maintained it could be junk. A traditional home inspector just wants to confirm there’s hot water. You want to know that it’s not going to break down when you move in!
Faucets, Sinks and ToiletsWe’ll check all existing faucets, sinks and toilets to make sure they’re fully functional with no drips or leaks. We also test water flow and make sure they drain at the right speed. Toilets also need to be checked for leaks, water flow and if they thoroughly clean the bowl.
Grand Lake Plumbing performs a serious, “nothing missed” inspection so you know what you’re buying. Have your realtor give us a call. Get peace of mind knowing your new plumbing system is working in perfect condition.
