Nothing lasts forever. Unfortunately, this includes the pipes in your home.
You see, it’s natural for your pipes’ tubing to corrode, rust and decay over time. But watch out. Eventually, they will fail completely. When this happens, you’re no longer dealing with a slight yellowish tint in your water. Now, you’re facing the costly and hazardous catastrophe of water and raw sewage flooding your home.
Luckily, you can avoid this disaster by turning to Ray The Plumber. Through our whole house repiping services, our team will have your pipes—and your serenity—flowing in the right direction in no time!
Replacing all of the pipes in your home is a major task. In fact, it’s one of the largest plumbing repairs a homeowner can face.
However, if you want to keep your plumbing system operating smoothly with little repairs for decades, then whole-house repiping is an absolute necessity. But the key is to determine when this replacement should take place.
Well, from spotting an issue with your plumbing’s performance to analyzing information about your home itself, here are some clear signs that your pipes need your help.
When your pipes are in trouble, you’ll know. You see, from your water pressure dropping to clogs and slow drains becoming a frequent hassle, your plumbing doesn’t pipe down about its true wellbeing.
So, look out for these warning signs:
Why is it important that you know your pipes? Well, believe it or not, the materials that your supply pipes and drain lines are made from have a large influence on their lifespan. For instance, cast iron drain lines last 80 to 100 years, while polyvinyl chloride (or PVC) drain lines only last 25 to 40 years.
There are two important questions you should ask yourself: How old is your home and when was the last time your pipes were replaced?
With new information being unearthed everyday, the plumbing industry has to continuously adapt its practices to reflect this new knowledge. One thing that has changed significantly over the years is the type of material pipes are made from. So, if your home was built 50 or more years ago, it’s extremely likely that your pipes were constructed from outdated material that is no longer used because it corrodes easily, is prone to breakage or poses a serious hazard to your health.
The most effective way to know whether your pipes need to be repiped is by scheduling regular maintenance with Ray The Plumber. In addition to giving your pipes the TLC they need, our professionals will examine your pipes’ wellbeing and let you know if your pipes are too degraded for repairs. If so, we will help you move forward with repiping your home.
But don’t wait until it’s too late to start protecting your home and your budget from catastrophe. Fill out our online form or call us at 1.877.CALL.RAY today!
