The plumbing of your property is a necessity but is it doing its job? There are many reasons why plumbing problems occur but one of the main reasons is wear and tear over time. Unfortunately, sometimes piping gets so old that a large chunk or even the whole system must be replaced. When that time comes it is good to know that you can rely on the re-piping, also known as re plumbing, experts at Smart Plumbing. We will gladly, inspect your Melbourne property and keep you informed on what state your pipes are in and if they need to be redone.
Of course, no one wants to have to replace the plumbing system in their home or business. But ignoring the issue will only cause severe water damage, which will end up costing you far more in the end. To avoid excessive expenses, here are a few warning signs to look out for when it comes to the state of your plumbing.
What are your pipes made of? You should have received a report, upon moving into your residence, that specifies what your pipes are made of. Otherwise you can contact a plumber who can tell you what kind of pipes you are working with. Most piping material can last between 70 to 100 years without needing a replacement such as brass, copper, galvanized steel or cast iron. Two types of piping that you should specifically look out for is lead piping and polybutylene (PVC). Lead can leach into your water supply and cause a great deal of harm to the occupants. PVC piping, is a plastic piping with a short life span (24-40 years) but it is prone to breaking and it is very low quality as piping goes. If you have PVC pipes, then it is best to have them replaced to safeguard the future of your property.
Leaking Pipes? If you have a single pipe that is leaking, then there is not much to worry about but it should give you a moment of pause. It is most likely that all of the plumbing in your Melbourne home or business was done at the same time. Thus, one leak could be a warning sign that the system itself is starting to break down. When you have the leak fixed make sure to ask the plumber why the leak happened and if necessary to inspect other areas on the property.
Brown or yellow water? There are generally two reason why a faucet would give yellow or brown water. 1) Your water heater has started to rust on the interior and should be replaced. 2) there is corrosion in your pipes and they should be replaced.
Signs of corrosion? If you have exposed pipes or ones that you can easily inspect, then there are a few things to look for. When examining, look for discoloration, rusting, stains, or a change in the texture of the pipe. If you find any of these signs, it is recommended that you call a plumbing technician to perform a more thorough inspection.
If you find that your Melbourne property displays any of these issues, then give Smart Plumbing a call. We will gladly inspect the current state of your plumbing infrastructure and provide you with economic solutions and accurate estimates!
