How Can I Tell If My Pipes Need To Be Replaced
The experts at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing want to share with homeowners the telltale signs of worn pipes that may need to be replaced:
- Stains: Stains on the walls or below where the pipes are located is a very common indicator that the pipes need to be replaced. In the bathrooms, check underneath the sink to see if the surrounding walls have any stains.
- Leaks: Be on the lookout for leaks. This is probably the most obvious, and it could lead to expensive repairs if not addressed promptly. Leaks are often very easy to repair. Call your local plumbing expert to check for leaks and offer repair and replacement options.
- Water: If you enjoy taking baths, be sure to check the color of the water. If your water appears to be a brownish-yellow color, this could be an issue with your water heater or it could be an indicator that your pipes have problems. Rusting pipes can cause discoloration in your water, and it’s important to call an expert to get your water back to clean and clear as soon as possible.
- Know Your Pipes: Knowing what types of pipes you have is very important for replacement decisions. If you are unsure about what type of pipes you have in your home, call an expert today to get a full inspection of your plumbing and schedule a maintenance check to be sure that your pipes are in tip-top shape.
