Plumbing Questions You Should Ask When Buying a Home

Getting ready to buy a house? Be sure to ask the right questions about the plumbing so you know what you’re getting into!

The Water Heater

When was the water heater last replaced? How old is the current one in place?

City Water

Is the house on city water? If so what’s the incoming water pressure? Do you need a water pressure reducing valve installed?


Is the house on a well? How old is the pump and pressure tank?

Sump Pump

Does the house have a sump pump?  If so, how old is it? Does it have a battery back up?
