Plumbing Upgrades to Make Before Selling Your Home

Plumbing Upgrades to Make Before Selling Your Home

If you’re planning to put your house on the market at some point in the near future, you’re probably asking yourself what you can do to increase your property’s value. Making some plumbing upgrades is a great place to start.

When potential buyers tour your home, they will be paying attention to every detail, from your flooring and paint colors all the way down to your bathroom faucet. Before you put the “for sale” sign out on your front yard, here are some plumbing upgrades that are worth making.


It’s no surprise that over time, our fixtures go through general wear and tear because of how often they are used. If a potential buyer of your home is looking at your kitchen and bathroom sinks, will they be satisfied with what they see? Or will they question when the last time a new faucet was installed? Upgrading your fixtures is significantly less expensive than completely remodeling the space but still enough to give your kitchen and bathroom a refreshed look.

Water Heater

How old is your current water heater? Do you ever have hot water issues? Installing a tankless water heater will immediately draw the attention of potential buyers because tankless models have a longer lifespan and are much more energy efficient than standard tank models. Not only do tankless water heaters heat the water on demand, but they can also save homeowners up to $100 annually on energy bills.


Just like fixtures, drains also go through a lot in a given week. Between hair, soap scum, food particles, and other debris, drains need to be cleaned out regularly. Before you put your house up for sale, check your drains and run some water down them. If the water is slowly draining or accumulates in your tub when you shower, it might be time to call Einstein's Plumbing & Heating, Inc. for a professional drain cleaning.
