Regarding plumbing related pre-purchase inspection, here are some basic tips on what needs to be checked during this inspection.

Check Over the Water Heater-

A very important part of pre-purchase inspection is the water heater and its overall condition because getting it replaced just after shifting to a new home can be an expensive affair. 

No property buyer is in a condition to make this investment soon after buying a property and this can be possible only when it is checked in pre-purchase inspections. 

A water heater can lose its life because of numerous reasons and out of them; the main culprits are rusting, dampness, lack of maintenance and so on. If the water heater is not giving hot water, it is important to report it to the seller of the property or the agent involved in the deal.

Size Up the Sewage System-

Companies offering plumbing services Canberra assume checking the sewage system, a very important part of the pre-purchased inspection process. This becomes even more important when the property has a septic tank and it is also connected to city’s sewer system. 

In such cases, the emergency plumber Canberra will use his skills to check the condition because clogs and leaks prevailing there could cause a significant amount of damage to the property. 

The inspection of sewage system would include looking for unpleasant odours and pools of water around the property and if found, video camera-based inspection is also carried out in the sewer lines.

Testing the Toilets-

The emergency plumber Canberra will also check the drainage system of all the toilets installed in the property to be bought. He will do this by flushing water and ensuring that it does not stop at any point of time. 

He will also look for discoloration and soft spots in the flooring around the toilet – a leak can easily make the floor rot. If any kind of flaw or damage is discovered, as mentioned above, it should be reported to the seller directly or to the agent in between both the parties.

Delve Into the Drains-

The Canberra plumbing experts will never skip checking the condition of the drains during the property pre-purchase inspection because improperly functioning drains can be a huge threat to the property‘s structure. 

This inspection of drainage system will be the part of all kinds of plumbing services Canberra offered by any emergency plumber. They will check whether the drains in the kitchen, bathroom, basement, etc. are totally free from any kind of clogging. 

This can be done easily by turning "on" the faucets and letting them run for a few minutes. Other than this, they will also look for old water marks and mould under the sinks as there could be the signs that reveal that there was an issue there earlier.
