Does Your Home Need Repiping?

does your home need repipingPlumbing maintenance is something that should never be ignored, but a lot of home owners procrastinate and avoid any signs that their homes need to be repiped.

The root of the procrastination can be traced to the costs involved, but still, this is one issue that needs to be addressed straight away by a plumber.

We’ve created a list of signs that your pipes could be leaking:

Signs to watch out for

Leaking is one of the first signs that you should look out for because leaks mean it’s time to replace your pipes. If pipes are leaking, then chances are the entire system needs to be replaced to prevent rusting and corrosion. A decrease in water pressure is an indication of leaks or some form of corrosion has happened inside the pipe and is blocking the water from getting through. This can be a very frustrating problem and is common in houses with steel or galvanised piping.

Rust-coloured water is also an indication of worn out pipes and it’s a sign that you need to do some re-piping. The iron from the water has clung to your pipes and started to rust. This happens with steel and galvanised pipes due to the chemical reaction that takes place between the metal and the minerals that are found in water. Water may be coloured for a few seconds before they start to clear again, but nevertheless, you still need to call a professional plumber.

If you moved into an old house, chances are the pipes are also old and thus it’s time you need to do some repiping before problems start to occur. Some pipes, however, can be hard to locate or uncover as they may be hidden behind the walls or underneath the floor, so checking for leaks can be difficult. What you can do is call a plumber to do the inspection for you.
