When moving into an older home, it’s important to check for roots that could be growing into the plumbing lines. It’s not something that’s often checked, and especially with older homes where roots have had plenty of time to grow, this could become a major issue. Be sure to also check the pipes and water tank for mold and corrosion. Again, if the house is older, consider what the pipes are made out of, because even if there are no problems now, dated materials could fail in the near future.
