Plumbing Defects

Although never ranked as a number one problem, plumbing defects still rank high among the house problems encountered, and include the existance of old or incompatible piping materials, as well as faulty fixtures and waste lines. With rural lots, the source of the water and the delivery system must be considered, is the water safe and can the pump deliver the desired pressure. Old water heaters may not be able to provide an adequate supply of hot water for your family. Another consideration is the fact that lead piping was used once and may still be found in some old houses, as well, even new plumbing, if installed by an amateur or a few decades ago, may have been assembled with lead solder.
