Common signs that your pipes may need to be replaced include:
- High water bill
- Low Water Pressure – Oftentimes metal pipe material will develop mineral deposits that can block the passageway for water flow.
- Water Leaks – As your home’s pipes begin to age, weak points in the material can cause leaks to become more and more frequent. Often, this leakage results in mold or water damage.
- Brown Water – Rust or corrosion can develop inside your home’s pipes, producing rust-colored or brown water. The rust can travel through the pipes into the faucets and other fixtures.
- Regardless of whether you own an older property or not, it’s important to be aware of these signs as they could save you time, money, and hassle in the future.
- You have copper piping – Some areas around Southwest Florida receive water from reverse osmosis plants. This water leeches minerals from copper piping. Also the water breaks down copper piping over time leaving it prone to leaks. Most times a visible leak or damage is the first indication that repiping may be necessary.
