Is It Time to Replace My Plumbing
Malfunctioning in any part of your property’s plumbing system can cause major damages to your property, belongings and your health. Plumbing pipes often fail because of their useful life, improper maintenance, frequently shifting temperatures, damaged parts, and poor or unprofessional installations. Keep in mind that most of your plumbing is hidden underneath the ground and behind the walls. Therefore, being aware of the estimated useful life of your piping and signs of potential failure can save you from a problematic situation.
Here are some warnings signs to help you determine when your home’s plumbing needs a replacement.
If the Water Pressure Is Low
If the water pressure in your shower or faucets decreases gradually, it could be an indication of an underlying problem in your home’s plumbing system. If the pressure dips all of a sudden, it might be because of a malfunctioning water heater. However, if the water pressure falls slowly, the problem might be a leaky pipe.
Water pipes that bring water supply to your home are generally installed behind or within the walls, which makes it more difficult to identify a leaking part. To notice signs of leakage in the pipes, thoroughly inspect the walls, ceilings and corner of the floors in your home. If you find stagnant water on the floor, or moist spots on the walls, this could be an indication of a leaking pipe.
Discoloration of water in any household is obviously something to be worried about. This problem could arise because of several reasons and you can tell actually identify the cause by closely looking at the color.
Yellow, red, or orange colored water usually means that there is excess of iron in your water. This is usually caused by corrosion in the pipes. The rust particles break off and flow with your water. If the rust isn’t cleared out on time, it can cause the pipes to break.
Presence of brass particles or copper in the fittings can turn the water color blue or green. Black or murky water indicates the formation of mold in your pipes. Using black water for even hand wash can have disastrous effects on your health.
