An unfortunate reality is that if your home is more than a decade old, there is a very good chance that your home’s plumbing is out of date. This is unavoidable because over time your pipes will experience elemental damage which leads to corrosion, rust, and eventually will leave them in a state of disrepair.
Below is a list of signs your home is in need of a plumbing upgrade:
Older homes and businesses are likely to have cast iron, lead, and galvanized steel plumbing pipes. These materials are often more problematic when it comes to taking damages from the elements and causing problems for home and business owners. If you are unsure how old the pipes in your home are contact Red Lion Plumbing today. We can tell you the piping material in your home, the condition, and help create a plan for you to have functioning plumbing for years to come.
There are only a couple of circumstances in which discolored water may not immediately indicated a reason to be concerned. If you are knowingly under a boil order, use well water, or live in a rural area- there may be other factors to consider before getting worried. However, if none of these factors resonate with your situation, keep reading. Darken water, in tones of browns and yellows are usually the result of rust running through your water due to corrosion. This can be detrimental outside of polluting your water because corrosion leads to mineral deposits which narrow the pathways of your pipes. When these pathways are narrowed the pressure in your pipes will build up which can eventually cause them to burst. Busted plumbing pipes can be devastating to your home.
