How and Why You Should Repipe Your Home
How Do I Know If I Need to Repipe My Home?
The problems with the pipes in your home can cause an array of issues that can be costly and damaging. Pipes don’t last forever so if your home is up in age, it’s time to check to see if you need your home repiped. We can help with our repiping services.
Pipe issues can affect anything having to do with, and the usage of water in your home: your showers, washing clothes and dishes, as well as the efficiency in your water output. You may see a decrease in water pressure in your irrigation system as well as low pressure in your faucets and shower heads.
Pipes that contain iron or steel have the potential to rust due to the low pressure of water. This is because low running water pressure causes rust and corrosion in the pipes which in-turn, will eventually turn your water brown or a reddish color. This discoloration can stain whatever it comes in contact with, not to mention it makes for some unpleasant water to drink. Keep in mind, although bad pipes are inconvenient and can be destructive to your home and belongings, it will not cause health problems.
Low pressure may not seem like a big deal; however, over time you will begin to notice the inability to get specific tasks done, which will become a burden. If you’re trying to sell your home, potential homebuyers will notice the low pressure, and will be a negative mark against your home.
The word, “leak” is a scary word for any homeowner. Leaks mean damage to the structures of a home and potentially, to belongings. Old, corroded and rusted pipes are a big risk for leaks. Unlike the inconveniences of discolored clothes or stains in the sinks, leaks are much more damaging and the costs of pipe leaks can add up quickly.
