What Do I Need to Know About Repiping My Home?

When Do I Need to Replace my Pipes?

As a homeowner, it is important to know the signs and signals that the pipes in your home need replacing. The pipes in your house are used every day and also hidden from view so they are easy to overlook and forget about. Though out of view, pipes need maintenance just like any other system in your home.

Signs that you may need to replace your pipes:

Low Water Pressure
Lack of water pressure is one of the main indicators that your pipes need replacing. You may have minerals, dirt or other debris clogging up the insides of your pipes. As your pipes age you may also get leaks that cause low water pressure. It is important to keep your pipes as clear as possible, frequent clogs can be a sign of something more serious.

Leaky Pipes
Leaky pipes are a fairly obvious sign that there is something wrong with your plumbing. Signs of leaky pipes include, soggy floors, foundation cracks, water meter changes, or a mildew smell. One leak in itself doesn’t mean you need new plumbing necessarily but frequent leaks could be a sign of and aging pipe system.

Water Bill/Meter Changes
You may not notice anything happening inside your home at all. Pay attention to your water bill, if you see a change in the average usage of water from one month to the next, it may signal that your pipes are leaking and thus wasting water.
