You just bought a house, and you want to move in right away. However, even if you have an all-clear from your home inspector and you have the keys in your possession, you want to call your plumber before you move in. If you haven't signed papers yet on your new home, you'll want to call your plumber to inspect the pipes and septic system to ensure everything is running smoothly, but it's always a good idea to get a plumber to your new property even if you have already committed to your new place.
The following are reasons you should call a plumber before you move into your new home. With the right care, your plumber can help you make your home safe and sound and well-protected for years to come.
Your plumbing may need some repairs
If your plumbing has even minor issues like a slow or small leak, outdated copper pipes, or other types of plumbing needs, then you'll need to have a plumber come into your home, take out the bad or damaged plumbing, and replace the plumbing parts with new pieces. Or, the plumbing can be repaired and not have to be replaced, but may still require your plumbing expert to spend time making things right.
The best way for a plumber to make repairs is to turn your main water off, which means you won't be able to use the restroom, shower, do laundry or dishes, or even wash your hands while they are working. While your plumber will certainly work sure and fast to complete the work that needs to be done, if you are present the job can make the experience uncomfortable for everyone as you try to both unpack and allow the plumber to do their job. Let the plumber visit prior to moving in and you save everyone the hassle.
Your plumbing may take longer than expected
Perhaps you know of the repairs that need to be done on your home. If you are aware of your plumbing needing work, you may not be aware of just how long the process will take. Some plumbing projects can take some time, so get the repairs made before you even move in so even if the plumbing work takes a few extra days, it won't affect you too badly in the end.
Your plumber is there to make your home's water supply safe and to allow you to feel comfortable living in your own space. When you hire a plumbing professional to work on your home's plumbing, you know you are getting ready for your new home.
