Selling a house with major plumbing problems is not easy. The reason is that many plumbing problems are gross and not very fun to repair. But we buy your house with plumbing problems and all. Below are some of the major plumbing problems that we don’t care about when we buy your house.
You Don’t Have to Fix Leaky Pipes if We Buy Your House
Leaky faucets are one of the things that a lot of houses have. If you detect them early, they can be fixed cheaply. But if not, they can cause a lot of damages to your furniture and floors. That dampness they cause also can encourage bugs such as cockroaches to get into your house. The majority of leaks happen at the joints of the pipe, particularly when there’s a problem with the pipe freezing and bursting.
When the supply side has a leak, water escapes under really high pressure. This can cause devastating damage to that area around it. It even can result in a flood if you catch it and repair it immediately. So you want to make sure all of your leaking pipes are fixed.
You Don’t Need to Fix Dripping Faucets if We Buy Your House
A dripping faucet isn’t a big deal, right? Wrong! You are losing 100s of gallons per year from just one dripping faucet. Just think about how much money that is going to cost you, especially if you have more than one faucet that drips. That’s one of the big reasons why you want to make sure it’s fixed if you aren’t selling your home for cash.
This is a common issue many households have. If you’ve got dripping faucets, there’s a good chance that you have a worn-out faucet washer or cartridge. If that’s the case, there’s good news. They’re simple to repair.
You Don’t Need to Fix a Clogged Bath or Shower Drain if We Buy Your House
Bath and shower drains are often clogged with hair and soap. If you don’t deal with them quickly, this problem just gets worse as time goes by. It’s a good idea to use preventative measures, such as putting in a guard for your drain. This will help with trapping soap pieces and hair.
If you have a clog in your shower or bath drain, a plunger will be needed to clear that blockage. You also can use some baking soda and vinegar for dissolving the clog. The easiest way that you can unclog it is to force the cable through your clog.
You Don’t Have to Fix Slow-Draining Sinks If We Buy Your House
Along with clogged shower or tub drains, you may find that you have a slow-draining sink. This happens because there’s a blockage in your sink drain and it restricts the water flow. Some things that can cause this blockage is congealed fats and food remnants. In the bathroom sinks, the blockage could be due to hair and soap.
There’s good news, however. Clearing a blockage in your sink drain’s really easy. You’re going to need baking soda, vinegar, and a plunger. One of the clog removers you can purchase at the supermarket is also an option, or one of the plumber’s snakes. However, you want to make sure that you are tackling the problem early. Otherwise, you might have a completely blocked drain.
You Don’t Have to Fix a Clogged Toilet When We Buy Your House
Of course, you might want to fix this anyway because who wants to have a clogged toilet on their hands? Clogged toilets aren’t fun. If you are having trouble with your home’s toilet bowls just filling up without any draining, your drainpipe is likely clogged. The good news is that you have all the tools that you need right in your house, such as your trusty plunger, some baking soda, and some hot water.
If using a plunger isn’t something that you want to do, good old baking soda and vinegar is a good choice for dissolving clogs. Allow this solution to stand overnight to get the best results.
You Don’t Have to Fix Your Water Pressure Problems When We Buy Your House
If you are finding that water is trickling from the taps rather than gushing, it’s essential to monitor your water pressure. Low levels of water pressure can be due to leaking pipes because they are corroded, worn out, or broken. It also can be because of built-up sediment on your aerators.
How is the problem of water pressure solved? Consider soaking your aerator inside a vinegar solution for several hours. This will clean it. You also can soak your showerhead the same way. If you have the same problem after that, you want to replace the parts.
You Don’t Need to Fix Backups in the Sewer System When We Buy Your House
A lot of things are really gross about backups in your sewer system. They’re very inconvenient, smelly, nasty, and they’re expensive when you have to repair them. How can you tell that your sewer system is blocked? Check if the drains and toilets aren’t working and they stink.
To fix this problem, you are going to have to consider the location of the blockage. If it’s happening in the compound the repair costs are something that you will have to pay. But if it’s happening along the road, the water company should be contacted to clean it up.
You Don’t Have to Fix or Replace a Faulty Water Heater
Your water heater’s one of your home’s most important appliances. Therefore, you want to make sure that it’s always working unless you have to turn it off. You’re going to know that it’s not working when you don’t have any hot water.
Below are some other signs that it’s not working as well as the possible reasons.
- It’s making weird noises because the heating elements have scale build-up
- The water pressure’s low on your hot water because of calcium and sediment deposits inside the plumbing
- Water takes a long time to warm up due to issues with heating elements and your thermostat
- Water’s too hot because of a faulty thermostat
In general, a problem with a water heater needs a professional. They’re going to be the one inspecting, maintaining, and repairing the water heater.
