The plumbing in your residential or commercial space should last you for decades, unfortunately, no matter what type of material is used, no piping can last forever. There is no exact measurement of time that allows you to know when you will need to replace the pipes in your home because there are many influencing factors that can speed or slow down the process of decay and aging to your plumbing pipes. Your plumbing works for you every day to deliver water and remove waste from your space safely. All of this work leads to inevitable wear and tear. 

 

So, how will you know when it is time to replace the plumbing pipes in your space?

 

Listed below are 4 signs it’s time to repipe your home or business:

Pipes Are Old: While the lifespan of your space’s pipes will vary due to a wide range of influencing factors, such as wear and tear, climate, and structural damages, a good rule of thumb is to replace your pipes if they are 50-years-old or older. Additionally, older pipes were sometimes made out of lead which is an unsafe material for your plumbing. Lead pipes should be removed and replaced right away. If your pipes are made of polybutylene you will want to have them inspected by a professional on an annual basis to ensure they are not leaking. 

 

Leaking Pipes: Where there’s smoke there’s fire! If you have a leaking pipe in your home, it is important to keep in mind that this pipe is the same age and made of the same materials as the rest of the plumbing in your space. You will want to quickly have the rest of your pipes inspected to ensure that there are no unknown leaks in your space that can cause water damage and other problems in your home. 

 

Low Water Pressure: Low water pressure can be caused from many different factors, but the most common reasons for low water pressure is sediment buildup and corrosion, which both block water from passing through the entire pipe. If your appliances or shower are beginning to provide low-pressure water this is a sign that you may need to repipe your house.

 

Strange Smell or Color: If you notice the water coming out of your pipes suddenly has a strange or unpleasant odor, or appears to be discolored, you should contact a plumber right away. This may mean your water has been contaminated, and you may need to repipe your space.
