Why Drain Inspection Is Essential When Buying a Home
Getting a general inspection when buying a home is a no-brainer. You want to ensure everything from the roof down to the foundation is structurally sound. However, since general inspections only involve visual checks to reveal possible issues, they usually don’t include the drains.
As the trusted expert in drain cleaning in Oceanside, CA, A.M. Plumbing & Rooter recommends getting a pre-purchase drain inspection. It gives you a clear picture of the condition of your drain lines, sparing you from the surprise of expensive repairs. Keep reading as we discuss more of its importance:
Understand Your Drain Lines
If you don’t realize early that the home you’re eyeing has a clogged drain, you could end up with costly repairs later on. An in-depth inspection provides you with crucial information about the drain lines to give you an idea of their maintenance needs in the long term. Furthermore, this allows you to negotiate costs with your realtor or decide if it’s best to look for other options.
A drain inspection informs you of the following:
- How the drains are used
- The condition, size, and material of the drain pipe
- If there is a buildup of grease and/or scale
- If there is a tree root problem
- If any drains have collapsed due to lack of maintenance
Help Determine the Responsibility
Sometimes, it can be challenging to determine who is responsible for plumbing problems. By getting an inspection from a reputable drain cleaning company, you will have a better idea of what you are dealing with. If your sewer line is clogged, the inspection will show the cause of the blockage. It will help you know if it’s you, the seller, or the municipal who’s liable for the repairs.
Ensure Your Safety
If you are buying an old home, it might still have old pipes made of harmful materials like lead. It’s best to know this in advance to avoid potential health hazards. This factor will help you decide whether or not to buy the home and arrange repairs and drain cleaning services.

This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
