Benefits of Plumbing Inspections for New Homeowners

West Palm Beach PlumberBuying a new home can be an exciting time. As most people know, during the course of an offer being accepted and a home going into escrow, a home inspector will look the home over on behalf of the buyer and their financial backers to ensure that there are no glaring problems that can call the value of the home into question.

There are three primary benefits of having your plumbing inspected by a professional plumber prior to closing on your house: they will be able to go in-depth and find any building code violations that need to be corrected before you buy the home, they will provide you with an estimate of how long your pipes will last after you buy the home, and they can provide you with a detailed look of where you will have potential problems after you purchase the home.

Finding building code violations

Building code violations can also be picked up by a general home inspector, but plumbing professionals are specialists that can expand upon what a home inspector found, as well as providing an estimate of what it will take to fix any problems.

Estimating plumbing system longevity

Plumbing inspectors excel at looking at your whole plumbing system and determining how many years you can expect to use it. You may be used to this type of analysis as your insurance company will estimate the remaining length of time that your entire home is expected to remain standing. With plumbing, the advantage is that even if everything works, you will know how antiquated every part is and can ask for changes before you close if the system is expected to last that long.

Finding Plumbing System Weaknesses

If you have a sophisticated plumbing system and want to know where it's weaknesses are, a plumbing inspector can increase the pressure in different parts of the home and use equipment to measure how each part of your pipe system reacts, giving you a good idea just where your plumbing system will fail first if there is a problem.As a new home owner, what should be done to prepare your plumbing before moving into a new house?
