Signs Your Plumbing Needs to Be Replaced

Home Repair
When it comes to a home, just about everything breaks or wears out. It can be a scary thought to look around your home and realize that just about every aspect of it will eventually need replacement or serious repairs. Thankfully, though, these events happen throughout the lifetime of your home.

One day, you might find that your plumbing has to go. As the tubing that runs under and throughout your house ages, it can corrode, rust, or just plain-ol' break. Without replacing this plumbing with the help of plumbing contractors in Lake Arrowhead, CA, your home will likely fall victim to leaks, flooding, rusty and poisonous water, or a backup of raw sewage. The many thousands of dollars these disasters will cost you pale in comparison to simple plumbing replacements or repairs when they are needed.

Here is some helpful information about your home's potential risk of plumbing failures:

• Find out what kinds of pipes you have by either taking a look at your home's inspection report, which you received when you purchased your home, or having a plumber inspect your plumbing and determine its type and construction materials.

• Brass, cast iron, and galvanized steel pipes will last up to 100 years, so these should not be of concern to anyone who does not own a historical home. Copper pipes will last up to 70 or 80 years.

• PVC pipes, though, should be of concern to anyone that is not in a new home. These pipes only last about 25 to 40 years before they start to leak. They tend to only be used for drain lines or sewage pathways.

• While pipes older than the years listed above do not necessarily need immediate replacing, they will need to be monitored with yearly tune-ups.

• If hard water, or water with high mineral content, runs through your pipes, they will likely last about 10 years less than the life span amounts listed above.

• Lead pipes, which were used in homes built at the beginning of the 20th century, should be replaced immediately. While they technically are supposed to last about 100 years, they can leak lead into your drinking and bathing water, which is seriously damaging to your health.

• Another faulty variety of plumbing pipes is polybutylene, a material that was used in homes built from the 1970s to the 90s. They are severely brittle and can break easily and without a moment's notice.

• Exposed piping, which is common in basements, utility rooms, and attics, can easily be inspected by a plumber. These pipes will tell you everything you need to know about the hidden pipes underneath your home and inside your walls. They may be discolored, chipped, or stained, all signs of corrosion.

• While rare leaks are usually not signs that your entire plumbing system is shot, common leaks in various areas throughout your home are a sign that something is wrong with all of your piping.

• Look at the color of your water for signs of corrosion. If brownish or yellowish water comes out of any of your pipes--and it would be wise for you to test all of them regularly--then your water could potentially be dangerous to consume. Call a plumber immediately to confirm that your plumbing needs to be replaced. While having to do expensive work on your home can seem daunting, it is important for you to realize that living in a home with old or dysfunctional plumbing can be a danger to you, your family, and your entire house. With the information above, if you feel that your plumbing might need serious work, consider discussing your options with plumbing contractors in Lake Arrowhead, CA.
