Buying a Home? Watch Out for These 3 Plumbing Problems

When you’re looking at houses, there’s so much you have to factor in when finding the perfect one: location, neighborhood, room layout, size, and so much more. One of the most important aspects of any home is its plumbing system. Sadly, this often gets overlooked during the homebuying process. Without a quality plumbing inspection from Rock Hill, SC plumbers, you may realize too late that the home you just bought has problems. As a trusted provider of plumbing repairs and inspections in the Rock Hill and Fort Mill area, Carter Quality Plumbing wants you to be on the lookout for these three plumbing problems when buying a new home:

  1. Leaky Pipes – Don’t be afraid of checking the pipes in the home you’re looking at. Open up the cabinets under the sinks, turn on the shower heads – and check everything! If you see any leaks, tell your real estate agent or the homeowners that you won’t buy until the leaks are fixed.
  2. Brown Ceiling Stains – A bit trickier to spot, these stains can be a sign of serious leaks in a house. Look at every wall and ceiling for this type of damage.
  3. Slow Drainage – Turn on all faucets and watch how the water drains. If the water takes an usually long amount of time to drain, then it could indicate a blockage in the pipes. Ask for them to be inspected before you sign for the house.
