When Do You Need a Repipe?
While we may think of pipes as a permanent part of the house, they aren’t. Eventually, all pipes need to be replaced, in order to prevent leaks, get better water pressure, and sometimes even for safety. How do you know if your home needs completely new pipes?
- Rust in the water
- Dropping water pressure
- Noisy pipes
- Multiple leaks
- A burst pipe
- Water that smells odd
- Pipe corrosion
- Dramatic temperature changes in water
You may also consider getting your pipes replaced if they are old. Steel pipes may only last 20 years, and brass may only last 40. Pipes that are near the end of their lifespan may develop multiple leaks or may burst. In this case, just fixing one section of the pipe is a waste of time, as you’ll be repairing another soon. A total repipe is in order.
