All things get tired and worn out. The plumbing in your home is no different. There comes a time to replace your plumbing and deteriorating pipes. Of course, these things are never timely or convenient, but they are paramount to keeping your living space “above water.” The possibility a flood of water or raw sewage in your home that will incur thousands of dollars in damage to your building and belongings, isn’t worth sitting on the issue hoping for it to self resolve. Plumbing is a most unforgiving thing. It is also a most wonderful thing when it is brought up to par, with the promise of a long, new life and the old plumbing is put to rest in some far off, distant repurposing plant.
home owners need to watch for?
• Age itself can be a warning sign. A home of 60 years or more needs to check annually for tell-tale signs of trouble.
• Discoloration, stains, dimpling, pimples, or flaking on the tubing of your pipes are all indications of corrosion.
• Leaks, even small ones that can be easily repaired may be indicators that the time for whole-house replumbing is now.
• The color of your water when you fill your bathtub. If the water looks brown or yellow, what you’re seeing is rust, a sign of decay inside the pipes.
