Homes are like everything else in life; they age, and with age comes damage and the need for repairs. While the damage can vary from home to home, the one area a lot of homes experience problems with is plumbing.
Plumbing issues can be difficult to detect and can cause a lot of damage in the process of trying to figure out what’s going wrong. Sometimes the issue is a simple fix but at other times it can be a real issue that requires major repairs, like repiping. Below are three indications your home may need to be repiped.
Noisy pipes don’t always mean you need to have your home repiped. You might just have water hammer which can be corrected without a full repiping. However, depending on the age of your home’s piping system, it may be time for a refresh.
If your pipes are banging and making loud obnoxious noises, repiping may help to solve your problem. Call your local plumber to come out and inspect the issue, they’ll be able to help you figure out the best solution!
Most homeowners have experienced some sort of leak in their home, whether it was a simple bathroom sink leak, a water heater that needed to be replaced or a massive slab leak. While you are probably familiar with some of these more minor issues, a repiping job can be a much bigger deal.
If you notice any leaking coming from your plumbing, make sure to call a plumber right away so that it doesn’t turn into anything too major!
Water Pressure Issues
Water pressure is a big give away that you could use a repiping throughout your home. Whether the water is barely coming out while you're doing the dishes or the pressure is extremely low during a shower, repiping may be the answer to all of those problems.
