Replacing Water Pipes in your Plumbing.

Plumbing is usually relatively sturdy; unfortunately, it does not last forever. If you find yourself making small repairs over and over again, it could very well mean that it is time to replace all or part of your plumbing system. Of course, replacing water pipes in your plumbing system is no small undertaking. The construction work that goes into such a job is not only disruptive – forcing to leave your home while walls are torn out and your main water is disconnected – it can also be quite expensive. So how do you decide when repair jobs are not enough? When can you know it is time to bite the bullet and actually go for replacing your entire plumbing system? Here a few things you need to consider when making this incredibly important decision.

When it comes to plumbing repairs versus plumbing replacement, the trick is to find the right balance between not jumping into a replacement job before you have to getting the work done before any major disasters happen. If you have a massive system failure, not only will you have to pay to have the plumbing replacement work done, but you will also have to pay to repair any damage done to your

water pipes

property by it’s failure. One way to tell that you have a big plumbing problem on your hands is the number of times you need to have a repair done. If you have to continually make repairs in the same area, then you can be certain that the repairs are not doing the trick and that more extensive work needs to be done.

Another way to know that you have a real problem in your plumbing system is to, believe it or not, just listen to your pipes. When you turn on a tap or flush a toilet, do you hear a lot of of “banging?” Does the system just sound like it is struggling to cope? Often, when you hear that kind of disruption, it’s because the system is struggling to work and function properly. Some creaking is normal, but when your system is fragile, you will know it. If you couple that with something akin to a delay between when you turn on your tap and when the water comes out, you should definitely consider having your plumbing professionally checked.

Time can be another indicator. Like all things in life, Plumbing has a shelf life. In apartments, pipes need to be replaced every 30 years or so. Private homes may be able to get away with another 10 years beyond that depending on usage. If your plumbing falls within this window, it may simply be time.

When it comes time to replace your plumbing, make sure to shop around and get a few prices for the job. The work is expensive, so getting the best deal makes sense. Give us a call today and let us give you a quote on replacing your plumbing system (317) 859-9999
