Pipe Replacement

Do you know how old the pipes in your home are? Have you considered pipe replacement for your Salt Lake City home? Many of us haven’t considered pipe replacement until we have faced a problem in the home. By then it’s too late. Your home is flooded because of an old pipe has corroded and now you have to worry about flood damage and mold.

Material of pipe such as lead, galvanized steel, polybutylene are not as reliable and can leak or cause damage to fixtures of your home. Pipes in the home are designed to last a long time, usually 30 years or more. Even if the pipes are still holding strong, the material of the piping such as lead and polybutylene pipes are not as safe as copper pipes and should be removed immediately.

Why lead and polybutylene pipes should be removed

Due to safety and durability concerns, lead and polybutylene pipes are two types of piping that should be replaced immediately in your home no matter how old they are.

Used in the early 1900s, lead pipes are durable with a life expectancy of 100 years. However, it poses a serious health hazard as the lead can leach into the drinking water.

Prone to breakage, polybutylene pipes were used from the 1970-90s. These pipes react with oxidants in tap water. The reaction causes the pipes to become brittle which in turn results in a fracturing of the interior surface of the pipe. The pipe will begin to leak, causing severe damage throughout the home.

Warning signs that you need pipe replacement in Salt Lake City

No matter how old your home is, you should have the piping inspected annually. If you decide to inspect exposed piping in your home yourself, here are a few things to keep an eye out for.

Locate exposed pipes in the basement, crawl space, and utility room. Look for signs of trouble such as tubing discoloration, stains, dimples, and flaking. All of these are indications of corrosion.

When you fill your bathtub or a glass with water, look at its color. If the water is brown or yellow, it’s a sign of decay inside the pipes. This is a sign that you need to consider pipe replacement in your Salt Lake City home very soon.

They were fast and efficient, and generally a pleasure to work with (a hard thing to say when you are shelling out money you would rather use on something other than plumbing). They made an unpleasant situation easier to deal with (lots of plumbing issues) and fixed them all in one day!"
