Common Signs of Pipe Repair
Be on the lookout for these common signs of a plumbing repair:
Low water pressure – Low water pressure can indicate a corroded or clogged pipe. It could also mean that you have hard water and lots of mineral deposits that are restricting water flow.
Soggy patches in your yard – A constantly wet or soggy patch in your yard can mean that an underground pipe is leaking.
Rising water bills – If your water bill is going up and you’ve ruled out other possible causes, you may have a leak somewhere in your plumbing system.
Plumbing pipes last a long time, but eventually they will need to be repaired or replaced. If you notice any of these signs of leaking or deteriorating pipes, contact a professional plumber right away to avoid any further damage.
When Should You Replace Your Home’s Plumbing Pipes?
Pipe failure can lead to significant property damage. Different pipe materials have different lifespans, so ask your plumber about the expected life cycle of your pipe and pipe connections. It’s generally a good idea to replace your plumbing when you renovate a kitchen, bathroom, or basement.
Here are some average lifespans for different types of plumbing pipes:
- Copper: 50+ years
- Brass: 40 – 45 years
- Cast Iron: 75 – 100 years
- Galvanized Steel: 20 – 50 years
- PVC piping: 50 – 100+ years
Keep in mind that water quality, frequency of use, and maintenance all play a role in how long your pipes will last. Also, piping for drain lines tends to last longer since they aren’t put under as much stress. If you suspect any problems with your plumbing system, speak with a professional plumber before it turns into a serious money pit.
