Pipes are the most essential component of a house’s plumbing system. Without these, there’s no way for the water to flow to your showers and faucets; and the wastes from your toilets and sinks will not be transported to the drainage and sewerage system.
That’s why, observing proper maintenance of your piping system is very important. And when the need for repiping comes in, don’t hesitate to call your plumbing services provider immediately.
You have to know that pipes get rusty and erode over time. Even if you have galvanized pipes, which are generally considered safe, you are not exempted from the experience of rusting and erosion. This type of material has limits that usually depend on the water supply it transports. If the water that runs through it is acidic due to low pH level, using galvanized pipes can compromise the safety of your water supply. Remember your Chemistry experiment back in high school when you used the litmus paper to test substances as if they are acidic, neutral, or alkaline? Well, it can somehow help you with this.
The signs that your galvanized pipes are slowly corroding include a higher water bill and brown coloring of the water coming from your faucets or showers. Next to this will be rust, a foul smell, and low water pressure which makes the water not safe for drinking. Few more days and cracks will start appearing on your pipe creating more spaces for molds.
Here is when the importance of repiping comes in.
A repipe is a process wherein a licensed plumber gets rid of your current corroded plumbing system and replaces it with an upgraded plumbing system like copper or PEX.
Doing so not only guarantees your family’s safety, but also improves the state of your house or office. Moreover, it could save you from having expensive water bills.
Since this is a very tough work to do, you can rely on your plumbing services provider on doing this for you.
