Summer is ‘home buying’ season and many homeowners unfortunately find out too late that the home of their dreams is full of issues due to a poor plumbing system. So before purchasing your new home, we encourage you to visually inspect what may be happening behind the scenes with these helpful tips:

  1. Check the base of the toilet for signs of water damage
  2. Test the toilet, see how fast it flushes
  3. Turn on the water in the bathtub and kitchen sink – if there is a noticeable reduction in water volume, there may be calcium and mineral deposits restricting water flow
  4. How old is the water heater? The first 4 digits of the serial number are the month and year, anything older than 15 years old is a candidate to be replaced
  5. See a rusty water tank? This can be a sign of future problems
  6. Check washing machine hoses for rupture and test the valves for leaks by turning them on and off

If you’ve already purchased your new home, don’t worry – give one of our experts here at Patterson Plumbing & Heating a call: 719-544-4922. A specialist will come by, diagnose the problem, make recommendations and prepare pricing by the job – not the hour – so there are no surprises.
