3 Signs You Need To Replace Your Water Pipes
Sydney has its share of older houses, and with this comes older plumbing systems that may need upgrades or replacements.
It is not a pleasant possibility to consider, but in a few cases it could be necessary.
Fortunately, you have access to Sydney’s most experienced and highly regarded plumbers on hand to not only replace your worn out pipes, but to do so with efficiency and speed to make your home plumbing system function better.
Here are 3 warning signs that signify your water pipes need to be replaced
- Rusty Water
Seldom, rusty water may come from a hot water heater that needs replacing, typically if the rust or discolouration only appears when you turn on the hot water. If the discolouration arises from both cold and hot water, it means there is corrosion somewhere inside the pipe system itself. A qualified plumber can pinpoint the problem area and safely replace the damaged piping.
- Lead Pipes
Lead pipes are dangerous and are no longer up to code, but there are some old towns in New South Wales where some buildings carry outdated plumbing. This can pose as a health risk to you and your family if left in place; it is of utmost importance you get them replaced as soon as possible.
- Leaks and Pits
Show Up If you can spot corrosion and pitting in your pipes, take that as a wake up call saying they need replacing. Otherwise, they could spring a leak, add rust and/or any other contamination to your clean water in no time. Likewise, if a leak has already been sprung due to that corrosion, then nows the time to replace the corroded pipe, or any pipe for that matter.
