Pipe Replacement & Repiping Warning Signs
So when should you replace your pipes? Below are some early warning signs that not all is well with your plumbing system.
Strange tasting water
Iron, copper, and galvanized pipes will slowly shed their lining over time, leading to a bitter or metallic taste in your water. Metals are naturally found in water, but if the water starts to carry an odor and has a strong taste, you will need to replace your pipes.
Corroding or degenerating pipes
Corrosion will generally occur as metal or another material is exposed long-term to water. This will manifest as leaks in your home, which is a clear sign that you will need to replace or patch your pipes.
Dark Flakes in Your Water
Dark flakes in your water will result from either pipe corrosion, excess minerals, a poor water filter, or a corroding water heater. The flakes will typically be iron or other metals breaking down in your plumbing system and manifesting in your water. If this occurs, this is a clear sign that your plumbing system will need to be replaced.
Inconsistent water temperature
Inconsistent water temperature is due to issues with your water heater. In addition to checking the status of your water heater, you will need to check the plumbing connected to the water heater. Plumbing leaks concerning your water heater can mean that water is not reaching your water heater or properly channeled out, so you will need to check both your plumbing and water heater.
Decreasing or low water pressure
Your water pressure in your home should be consistent, which is a clear sign that your plumbing is working as intended. On the other hand, if the water pressure drops, your plumbing has issues as water is being diverted elsewhere, which is another sign that you will need your plumbing system checked.
A repiping service replaces the pipes in a home or building. It is a complete overhaul of the current water supply plumbing system, removing old lines and installing new ones to guarantee structural stability.
Copper and PEX(polyethylene) pipes both have their own pros and cons, but in general, Copper piping is ideal for a brand new home. PEX is better for remodeling and retrofitting an old home. Copper is more expensive but will last longer-roughly 70 years, whereas PEX has a general lifespan of 30 years before needing to be replaced. Copper is also prone to freezing and is much more expensive to install. On the other side, PEX is easy to install or DIY as the material is flexible and can be cut into whatever desired shape you need.
When you replace your pipes will depend on the material of your pipes. Brass and galvanized steel can last 80-100 years, copper will last 70-80 years, and PVC has a limited span of 24-45 years.
