Podcast Episode Transcription:
Buying a home is an exciting thing to do. And many of us when we buy a home, especially in the past couple of years, there's been so much competition and so forth. People have foregone inspections. So people, you know, have a, have a home inspector. Um and they also may have an inspector to inspect the swimming pool, the air conditioning system. But how about the plumbing? So this question has come up and I've asked my friend Bob Muller from personal plumbing to join me here on the program today to answer the question. Should people get a plumbing inspection before they buy their home? Hey, Bob, how are you? I'm great, Joe. Hey, thanks for having me. And yes, this is a very important question that you have brought up today. Yeah. So, you know, a couple of years ago there was a frenzy all over the country. The real estate market was super hot and some people really regret the purchase they made, they think they may have paid too much and they decided not to get an inspection on anything because they were afraid to lose the deal. That was probably a big mistake. For some people. Right. Uh, yeah, I agree. Um, never forego your home inspection. You could, uh, be talking about not only thousands of dollars but hundreds of thousands of dollars because if, uh, it turns out that, that you have a failed plumbing system, you may not ever be able to sell that house for, you know, what it, what its value is and you're just gonna take a loss on that. So, um, yes, it's very important and we, you know, mo most people get your basic general home inspection from a, from a licensed home inspector. And they're just gonna do a general overview overlook. They're not gonna really um get into the total uh process of, of fully inspecting the plumbing. They usually just say refer to a licensed plumber on there and, and that's kind of the way they get out of uh really doing a complete home inspection. Um They just do a visual inspection and, and for our company, we do uh what we call our personal plan, which is a process that where we uh we inspect all your plumbing system to make sure it's fully working. Um We put cameras inside your sewer to make sure that uh you don't have any failed uh sewer lines. Um We check for what type of plumbing you have inside your home, whether it's a copper piping, whether it's polybutylene or C PV C. But yes, it is important to make sure that you know the condition of your plumbing and that you've had it inspected. I totally agree. And that would go for any major system in your home more than the home inspector. You may want to drill down a bit. Don't be afraid to spend an extra $500 or $1,000 on specific inspections, the spa, the pool, the roof, all of that. Yes. And, and of course, you can't see inside the, the, uh you know, your sewer lines without putting a camera inside there. So this is very important to, you know, have a uh a license plumber come in and, and put that camera inside there. Get a very good visual on there for any cracks, any uh roots growing, any type of uh um noticeable scale, build up anything in there that can lead to catastrophic damage within the home system. Um I highly recommend Bob Muller plumbing expert here on the radio program from personal plumbing. Bob. Thank you so much. I appreciate your advice today. Thank you. Appreciate it.
