Does your home need to be repiped?
When it comes to your home, there is always the chance that something will need a little repair sooner or later. The pipes in your home are no different. There are signs that let you know when your home needs to be repiped.
One of the main methods of noticing this is if the water pressure changes. If the pressure changes to something slower than normal, you should have this looked at as soon as possible. Pipes that are older can have a buildup in them and some pipes could be on the verge of bursting. In addition you can have a crack in a pipe that also decreases water pressure.
Leaks are also another way of knowing when to get some repair work done. Leaks can be anywhere and sometimes they can be a little hard to spot or even hear. While leaks can have a number of different reasons behind it, it is best to let a professional take a look and decide.
Having air in the lines is another sign. If you have ever notices the water splitting when you turn on a faucet or it spraying in every direction, this can be a sign of air in the lines which would be reason enough to have the pipes looked at. This can often occur if there are cracks in the lines, which results in low pressure.
Sometimes you can actually see the evidence in the water. Particles of sediment are visible if you pour it into a clear glass. Rust stains can also appear anywhere around the faucets that are being used, which is sign of old pipes.
Finally, another common sign is for the water to have a strange taste to it. Sometimes there can be other reasons for the water tasting strange, but more often than not, it is because of older pipes that now need to be replaced.
