How to Know You Need a Pipe Repair

They run through walls, floors, and ceilings but are so reliable that most people take them for granted. Pipes, and the plumbing system altogether, offer comfort and convenience that everyone should actively appreciate. The water line delivers clean water, both cold and hot, and the drainpipes readily dispose of waste and wastewater. Sadly, pipes are not forever. They are vulnerable to a range of risks, and they will eventually have to be repaired or replaced. In this brief article brought to you by Rooter Hero Plumbing & Air, we will go over some signs that might indicate your pipes are damaged or faulty.

Cracks or Holes

You will more likely notice leaking before you notice cracks or holes in the pipes, but keep your eyes peeled for both; they are usually a package deal. Water could be leaking due to loose or misaligned pipes which can be resolved quickly, but pipes with cracks or holes will likely have to be replaced – or repaired at the least. Check pipes on exterior walls, in cabinets, in the crawl space, and other easy-access locations.

Low Water Pressure

If your faucets and showerheads are barely running or practically dripping, then a clogged or damaged pipe could be the culprit. A serious leak in the water line will mean that much of the water gets drained out of the tear instead of traveling all the way to your plumbing fixtures. If you notice a significant drop in water pressure from your faucets and/or showerheads, then turn off the water supply and check for leaks and signs of leaks.

Dirty or Discolored Water

There are a few reasons why your running water might be discolored or dirty. The water could be contaminated from the source, in which case all plumbing fixtures will be giving you the same dirty water. It could also be that the pipes are damaged and letting in dirt and other pollution from outside the system. Finally, the pipes could be corroding or rusting. Pipes are made of long-lasting materials, but they are not meant to last forever. They will generally break down after several decades of use.

Old House or Building

If you have a beautiful home from the mid-1900s, then we hope you have had the pipes inspected periodically – and recently. Plumbing pipes are usually made of sturdy material like galvanized steel which can last 20 to 50 years, or brass and copper which can last over 50 years. What they all have in common is a limited lifespan. They will all eventually break down and should be replaced sooner rather than later.
