Some plumbing problems are relatively minor, while others are a really big deal. If you’re having persistent plumbing problems across your entire home and your plumbing system is older, it may be time to schedule a service for repiping.
Our team is the repiping specialists in Red Lion, PA. You can give us a call to complete an assessment of your home’s plumbing system and we’ll let you know if any or all of it needs to be repiped. You can also keep reading to learn more about the signs that it may be time to schedule an appointment for repiping.
When you have a single clog, it’s usually not a huge deal. But if you have persistent clogs all over your home at different sinks, tubs, or showers and appliances, then your plumbing system may actually be to blame. You can always give our team a call to schedule a plumbing service to break down these tough clogs.
But if clogs return even after our efforts to break them down, it may be time to upgrade your plumbing. Many times older pipes have a smaller circumference and are made from different materials than what we use today. Corrosion combined with the smaller pipes can make your plumbing system more susceptible to tough clogs.
Lack of Water Pressure
It’s equally concerning if you have a lack of water pressure around your home. Just like tough clogs, having low water pressure at a single faucet usually points to an individual concern. But if low water pressure is a problem across the entire home, it may be time for a plumbing upgrade.
Of course, there are times when obstructions cut through the water lines leading into your home. For example, a tree root could grow through a water line, causing leaks in your yard and less water availability to your home.
Our team can use our specialized tools like plumbing video cameras to look deep into your plumbing system and find out what the problem is. We will be able to see inside all of your pipes and fixtures to determine whether there’s a problem we can fix or if your pipes just need to be replaced.
The water coming into your home should never have any kind of discoloration. If it does, there’s a chance that the pipes leading into your home are corroded and the discoloration you are seeing is rust. If a tree, root or other obstruction has broken open pipes leading into your home, you could also have dirty water as a result.
Sometimes these problems are fixable, but other times they can indicate that your home’s plumbing system needs to be re-piped. When we visit your home for an on-site inspection, we can assess the damage and give you our best recommendation.
Leaks are another sign of aging pipes. As plumbing systems get older, they do wear down. We often think of plumbing and pipes as being very sturdy and built to last. While they are, plumbing systems do still have a limited lifespan.
Once your plumbing system is at least 40 years old, it is time to begin considering the possibility of re-piping. In some cases, we can replace a section of your plumbing system that is giving you trouble. However, the rest of your plumbing system will continue to age and may need to be replaced in the near future.
