Calamvale Plumber Talks About Water Line Diagrams
Calamvale Plumber Bill Bolt explains why Water Line Diagrams are important, especially if you are thinking of buying a new house.
Working out what has happened to the plumbing of your potential new home over the years is very important, especially if it is an older home. First, a professional builder built it. But after that? What if Do It Yourself would-be plumbers altered or add to the plumbing? What Quality Guidelines were applied to the reno / extension? Can you rely on the work done? Or are there issues you need to resolve before you buy?
Water Line Diagrams are official documents, usually lodged with the Water Authority, that show the flow of water pipes throughout the property, including where it connects to the incoming water mains and exits to the main sewerage system.
If renovations or extensions have been done, the Water Line Diagrams SHOULD have been updated and filed with the Water Authority. If there has been no such lodgement, it MAY indicate property changes that were not done professionally; certainly something you want to check before buying. Finding problems after you have purchased the property may mean removing flooring – no fun if they happen to be concrete! In addition, if extensions or renovations have built out over existing water lines, future accessability may be a problem – check out the Residential Water Supply Diagram now.
If your Water Line Diagrams show that work was not finalised, or not officially sanctified, extreme caution is required – And it may be a bargaining chip on the asking price of the house.
Do not take the chance. You have had the Building Inspection done, the Pest Control Report says everything is fine – But plumbing problems are serious problems. By having an extensive Brisbane Plumbing House Purchase Pre-Inspection done by Calamvale Plumber Bill Bolt, you might save yourself a lot of money and heartache.
