That Old House Would Be Perfect If It Weren’t For The Pipes

Hunting for a home to live in is often a bittersweet experience, especially if you found one you truly would love if it weren’t for the old plumbing pipes that seem to have been halfway repaired.

Moving can be scary, yet be incredibly exciting as well. For most people, the fun is in discovering new friends, new things to do for the family, and of course the new home.

Most often, the home we are moving into won’t be brand new, but just new to us.

In homes that are older, we often find that there are many things we love about it and some things that just have to be changed to suit our needs. Sometimes a wall may need to be knocked down or other major changes will be needed.

If the home has good bones, meaning that the basics are there for you, there may be some other things that need updating such as the electric or plumbing.

Old plumbing can seriously be a nuisance or worse yet, a nightmare. When plumbing reaches a certain age, it is bound to corrode at joints, rust, leak, become weak in places, and piping into or out of fixtures such as commodes, sinks, and shut off valves deteriorate.

It is difficult if you find a home that would be perfect for your family if it weren’t for the plumbing problems that are so obvious. Have you ever walked into your new home and the first time you try to use the shower it springs a leak?

Or how about moving in and hearing the pipes moan and groan in the walls or rattle down in the basement all night? It can be frustrating. You just spent all that money to buy the place and didn’t realize how old that plumbing really was and how extensive the problems with it are. Perhaps it even passed inspection, but should it have?

A home that hasn’t had plumbing services in some time will end up with the same problems. Just like other systems of your home, your plumbing needs proper maintenance and inspections from time to time.

One way to ensure that your plumbing system will run as smoothly as possible on an ongoing basis is to sign up for a maintenance program. This is the easiest and most economic way to keep your plumbing up to date and up to code.
