When purchasing a house, plumbing is usually one thing that most people do not bother to check and as it is generally not covered by a building and pest inspection, the cost of just one faulty piece of plumbing can cost thousands of dollars.
Plumbing is one of the most important components of a home as it comprises your sewer lines, water supply, hot water system, stormwater gutters and downpipes and internal fixtures. Common plumbing problems include tree root infiltration into the stormwater drain or sewer line which causes blocked drains and can lead to collapsed pipes, leaking taps, leaking drain pipes and leaking water pipes, low water pressure, inadequate surface water drainage, water damage and pipe corrosion to name just a few. These issues can often go unseen when you are walking through your potential new home, it is not until a thorough inspection is completed that the problems can truly be recognised.
