Is It Time to Repipe Your Home?
Pipes that continually leak can sometimes mean more than what they seem. It might mean that it’s time to repipe your home. This may seem like a pain (and it is!) but fixing them can add value to your home, can help to avoid health problems, and of course, can avoid fixing recurring problems constantly.
Here are some signs that it is time to repipe your home.
Leaks that Won’t Quit
Leaks are one of the most common signs of a home that needs repiping. If you just keep fixing a leaky pipe, it’s only fixing the problem temporarily. Over time, pipes break down and corrode, and unfortunately, leaks will become more and more prevalent. It’s important to have a professional plumber fix the problem before it gets out of hand.
If you’re just experiencing plumbing issues such as water pressure, this might be a sign you may need to repipe your home. When pipes begin to break down and corrode, the sediment can not only build up and create a blockage in the pipes, which would cause a problem with the water pressure, but it can also get caught in the faucets and ruin them.
When you can see rust or corrosion on the outside of your pipes, the pipes may be breaking down and becoming weak, making them more susceptible to leaks and even breaking. If you see this, it is very important to call a professional plumber like LaPensee Plumbing to come out and properly diagnose the issue.
