3 Plumbing Inspection Tips Every Homeowner Should Know From Oahu’s Best Plumbers, Honolulu, Hawaii

Taking the first steps to purchasing a new home is an exciting time in anyone’s life, but with so many different factors to check, your home’s plumbing is likely the last thing on your mind. Overlooking your new home’s plumbing problems can manifest themselves later as floods and torrential leaks, causing hundreds of dollars in damages and repairs. Fast Rooter Plumbing offers Oahu residents superb and reliable plumbing services, helping home and business owners care for their drains, kitchen clogs, and toilets.

These professional plumbers repair numerous preventable pipe leaks and clogs, and offer insightful tips on how to check your new home for potential issues:

  • Know Your Water Meter: Locate your water meter and determine whether the shut off valve to the home’s water supply is on and active. If the home uses well water, shut off the valve located in the home. Shutting off the valve will stop the water flow and allow you to see if the system works.
  • Check For Lead Pipes: Lead is an environmental hazard and even homes built in the late 1980’s can have trace sources of the element. This is particularly important if you have small children or elderly residents.
  • Check The Runoff: Get to know your potential sewage system and know if your runoff water goes through a septic tank or to municipal sewer. Check for any leaks in your pipes as well as any strange odors before purchasing the home.

Buying a house is a life changing decision, but nothing shatters the dream faster than a burst pipe that floods your home. Take proper care to ensure that your home’s plumbing is safe and secure before signing the deed. Have the experienced plumbers at Fast Rooter Plumbing take a look and call them for any of your home’s future plumbing needs. Call Oahu’s best plumbers at (808) 734-4938 today!
