Whether you're buying a home or already own one, paying close attention to plumbing systems can help prevent major disasters down the road. Testing the water pressure in sinks and showers, checking for clogged drains, inspecting valves and pipes for corrosion, and making sure to have an updated lead free piping system can help make the process a lot easier.
According to the infographic below (provided by Angie's List), the average family of four uses 400 gallons of water a day and almost 14% of that water goes to waste due to water leaks. Most water damage is found within attics and basements, which include leaky pipes and inadequate repairs. Keeping a close eye on any signs of corrosion on a water heater is another important plumbing feature you don't want to miss. Checking when the water heater was last serviced is crucial in determining whether or not you need a replacement.
