Leaking pipes are one of the main causes of a home needing to be repiped. When a home has leaky pipes they may experience low water pressure. This water pressure could cause water to flow at a slow rate. You may notice that the water from your faucets is running slower than usual or after you flush your toilet, the water in your tank may take much longer to fill. If you have noticed any of these instances of low water pressure then it is a good indication that your plumbing system is in need of being repiped.
Rusty pipes are a second indication that your home may be in need of being repiped. These rusty pipes may not be physically visual to you but they will have symptoms. Rusty pipes can change the quality of your water. In the event that your pipes are rusty, the rust will transfer to your running water causing it to turn a brown color. This water can be unhealthy for you and your family to drink and therefore you should immediately contact a specialist in order to get your home repiped.
The age of your home is a sign that you are in need of repiping. If your home is more than 15 to 20 years old, then you should probably look into getting your plumbing system repiped. If your home is more than 15 years old it is quite possible that your plumbing system includes galvanized pipes. These pipes are susceptible to corrosion, leaks, and cracks. After 15 years these pipes could become damaged and need for replacement.
