Homeowners putting their homes up for sale can’t afford to have hidden plumbing problems cost them that sale. To ensure that a home passes the home inspection that usually comes with selling, homeowners should examine their plumbing before they put their home on the market.

Below is a list of general plumbing checkups that warrant a call to a qualified, licensed plumber.

Sinks:
• Examine all faucets to make sure none are dripping.
• Fill sinks with water and then drain to ensure good drain flow.
• Open cabinet doors and check under sinks for leaks.
• Look for rust and corrosion on sinks as well as pipes.

Bathroom:
• Fill bathtubs with water and then drain to confirm good drain flow.
• Inspect the base of toilets for signs of water damage or soft floors.
• Flush toilets. Check for continual running after tank is full.
• Make sure debris clears from the bowl.

Kitchen:
• Run garbage disposal and dishwasher to make sure they work properly.
• Other plumbing fixtures:
• Turn water supply valves on and off to test for leaks.
• Inspect the water meter to ensure that water loss is not occurring.
• Hire a professional plumber to video inspect the sewer line to verify that the plumbing system is in good condition.
