You’re moving to a new home. That’s hopefully great news. But before you get too settled in, it’s important to take a closer look at your new home’s plumbing. Ideally, you’ll want to ask some important questions about the place’s plumbing before you sign any contracts- but if you’re already past that stage, then it’s still important to review your new home’s plumbing.
The first thing you’ll want to do is review the layout of your plumbing system. Where is your home’s main water valve? In case of emergencies where you’ll need to shut off the water temporarily, you’ll need to know exactly where your main water turn-off valve is located.
Where is the home’s water meter? Your water meter will provide you with useful information about how much water you’re using, and you can also use the water meter to determine if any leaks are present.
Where is your water heater? Are there any visible signs of problems with the water heater? Knowing some basic details about your water heater will help you to anticipate problems that could come in the future. You’ll also know approximately when your water heater will need to be changed out for a new one.
Are there any leaky faucets or toilets in your new home? Take a close look, and if there is a leaky faucet or toilet, then you’ll want to solve those problems as soon as possible.
Once you have the basic plumbing review out of the way, the next step should be to call for an inspection of your new home’s plumbing. There’s a good chance that the previous homeowner didn’t provide you with a lot of information about the home’s plumbing. It may just be that the previous homeowner wasn’t aware of specific problems. In any case, you likely don’t have all the information that you need. With a professional plumbing inspection, you’ll become aware of any issues right off the bat. By knowing of any existing issues, you can get those issues fixed before they have a chance to get worse- and more expensive to solve over time.
