There are several signs that you should be on the lookout for, that indicate it’s time … or, long past time!… to address your home’s aging piping system.
One of the most common signs that your pipes need attention is rust. If you notice rust on your piping, it’s likely time to replace your pipes. Rust can cause water to leak and cause damage to your home. Additionally, if you notice discoloration in your water, that can be an indication that the pipes are corroded.
Low water pressure
Another common sign that your piping may need to be replaced is if you’re experiencing low water pressure. This can be a sign that your pipes are clogged. If your piping is older, it may be time to replace it regardless of the water pressure. Older pipes may be more susceptible to leaks and damage.
Speaking of leaks, those are another common indication! Leaks can be caused by a variety of issues, ranging from faulty fittings to worn-out or compromised pipes. If you notice any water leaking from your pipes, it’s time to replace them.
