Buying A New Home? Don’t Forget To Check The Plumbing

Before buying a home, it’s important to know the state of its plumbing. Problems with plumbing are not always obvious, and our Los Angeles and Orange County plumbers advise you make a close inspection before purchase.

Bathrooms
Toilets should flush properly, the faucets should flow well and drain completely, and the shower should have good water pressure. Both sinks and toilets should not move when pushed, and the bathroom floor should not have any warping or spongy areas. If aren’t sure the bathroom plumbing meets these standards, then a friendly and knowledgeable plumber from Adeedo! can conduct a professional assessment on your behalf.

Hot Water Heater

The unit should be in a location that is easy to get to so that it can be properly maintained and quickly accessed during an emergency. Additionally, our  plumbers recommend that water heaters should never be in a place where it can ruin carpets, floors or walls. It’s also important to keep in mind that older homes may present code issues with performance and installation that require updating.
