Inspecting the plumbing of a new home [VIDEO]

Transcript 

Hey everybody and welcome back! This week, we'll be taking a look at the steps you should take to have a house's plumbing inspected before you make a purchase.

The first thing you will want to do is inspect the hot water heater. It should be big enough to accommodate the needs of your entire family. A 40 gallon tank will work for the average family of four. If possible, check for any build-up of minerals inside the machine itself.

You should also check for any existing leaks. Ask the current homeowners to take care of this problem before you make the purchase, as even a relatively minor drip from a bathroom sink could end up costing you hundreds of dollars a year in wasted water.

As always, thanks for joining us, and we'll see you here next time!
