When Should I Replace My Old Plumbing?
Expert plumber recommends that you shouldn’t just replace a plumbing system when it is still working, even if it is old. There are certain signs you should probably see as a warning to replace an old plumbing;
When the water is no longer clear
Water running through your plumbing system should be clear but when you see colored water running from your faucet you should contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing for help. When dark brown water or tainted water runs through your plumbing, it means there is an internal corrosion. Corroded water is not good for use, it means there is a buildup of sediments and that will increase the risks of clog developing clog and can also lead to burst pipes.
When water in your pipe starts to smell
Do you notice some foul odor coming out of your plumbing system? A functional pipe should not produce foul odor hence it is an indication for replacement. Foul odor from a pipe indicates there is a buildup of bacteria. One of the distinctive smells you should watch out for is that of rotten egg. Do not hesitate to contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing when you notice foul smell development in your pipe.
The rotten egg smell is perhaps an advance indication of bacteria growth within your pipes. There are other less prominent smells that should also indicate that this is the right time to replace or repair your plumbing components.
When there is a sign of mold and water damage
Leaky pipes are problems that happen from time to time, but the most important thing is to get such damages fixed as soon as possible. A lot of leaks may be hidden from the eye because they occur behind the wall and you only get to know about these hidden leaks when you see huge brown water stains or mold growth. Do contact your certified plumber when you notice such moldy growth or brown patch.
Dripping pipes are also signs that your plumbing need repair or replacement. When you allow leaky pipes to stay for a longer time, the more damages they can trigger in your home. Your plumbing components should not age rapidly, especially when you conduct regular maintenance services.
