Nothing last forever. Life is temporal. Fleeting. Time marches on at a relentless pace. But hey, we are not here to get you down or anything. We are just here to talk about plumbing! Every plumbing system required maintenance, else it fall into disrepair. If things get too bad, you may need to have the entire system replaced. Which is expensive. Catch these minor problems before they can turn into a major disaster!
If you’re the owner of a house that’s been around for decades it may be a good idea to call a professional out to check on the piping. Pipes naturally erode and rust over time, and depending on when the home was built, the metal and other materials originally used for plumbing infrastructure may be seriously out of date. Lead lining was known to be used up until the eighties and could lead to serious health issues. Also, plastic piping used from the seventies to nineties could also use replacing since these pipes were cheaper and are more prone to breakage.
Strangely colored water may happen if you shut off your water every now and then, but if it is a constant occurrence you might have a problem. If brown or rusty water comes out of the faucet, you could have some severely eroded piping that is now infusing into the water supply and making it unsafe to use or drink.
Clogs and Poor Water Pressure
You may find yourself constantly unclogging drains that otherwise take forever to work properly. This could be the work of mineral build-up in piping that also leads to further damage in plumbing infrastructure. Alongside clogged drains comes poor water pressure and added frustrations in waiting for water you need.
