Leaky or noisy pipes aren’t just a nuisance; these are signs that it’s time to think about repiping your home. It’s important to understand that it’s helpful to replace pipes for a number of reasons. Repiping your home improves water quality, avoids health issues, adds value to your home, and avoids recurring leaks and constant repairs.
If you own a home in Plant City, Lakeland, Winter Haven, and the surrounding areas, here are some signs that your property needs repiping.
1. Your Water is Discolored or Smells Bad
When your water starts to smell and doesn’t taste or look right, it’s time to repipe your home. Poor tasting and smelling water means your pipes might be in the process of deteriorating. Even if the smell or taste isn’t horrible, deteriorating pipes can lead to worse problems and compromise the integrity of your plumbing system as well as your health. Water that is brown, yellow, or sediment-filled is a sign that your pipes are rusted and/or corroded.
2. Your Pipes Are Making Unusual Noises
A good way to tell if your pipes need to be replaced is to listen to the noises they make. Banging and creaking are common when pipes get older and require replacement. Loud or unusual noises can be a sign that something isn’t quite right with your pipes. Corrosion and water pressure changes can produce a range of creaks, thumps, and bangs when your system is in use. Noises can indicate pipe damage, air access, loose brackets and connections, or leaks. When your pipes begin making consistent noises, it’s best to repipe your home to ensure your pipes don’t get worse and begin leaking or causing worse issues.
Repiping your property improves water quality, avoids health issues, adds value to your home, and avoids recurring leaks and constant repairs.
3. You Experience Recurring Leaks
Leaking is one of the most obvious signs that you have a problem with your pipes, particularly if you find you are experiencing recurring leaks, even after several repairs. Old pipes degrade over time and leaks become more and more common. Leaking pipes can be the result of flaws in your piping system, excess water pressure, corrosion and rust, or old pipes. Continuing to unfruitfully repair your pipes is only a band-aid solution that will only worsen over time. Having your pipes replaced by a professional repiping company like True Plumbers & AC fixes a number of issues and prevents worse ones from arising later on.
4. Your Plumbing Is Performing Poorly
If you’re experiencing poor performance from your plumbing system such as difficulty changing the water temperature and water pressure issues, it’s time to repipe your property. As pipes rust and corrode, sediment builds up within the pipes, restricting water flow and reducing pressure. Sediment can get stuck in anti-scalding devices designed to regulate your water’s temperature. These fluctuations in pressure and unregulated temperature all take a toll on your piping system and further degrade its quality.
5. Visible Corrosion or Rust on Pipes
Visible corrosion and rust on your pipes is another sign your pipes need to be replaced, sooner rather than later. Corrosion and rust can further deteriorate your piping, causing your pipes to become weak and brittle. Weak and brittle pipes are more susceptible to leaks and other damage, and corrosion and rust can infiltrate your water, causing serious health issues. When you can see rust or corrosion on your pipes, you should call a repiping company immediately to schedule a time to repipe your home.
