There are not many people who will walk into their home and want to guess as to how old their pipes are. It is not a common thought process wondering about the age of their pipes and if they are about break or keep going. The important thing about maintaining your pipe system is knowing the age and stability of your pipe system. Your pipeline system could be considered the bones of the structure in your home. The longer you go without your calcium and vitamin D the weaker your bones get and it causes painful and expensive damage to your body. The same is said for the health of your pipes. The older pipes are the more susceptible they are to corrosion, mineral or debris buildup, or materials they are made from are now weak and will eventually crack or break.
Determining in the Age of Your Pipe
At USA Pipe Repair, we want to ensure that you have all the information you need not only to maintain your future problems, but to prevent any expensive current issues that may arise. There are a few common signs that correlate to older pipes. If you are experiencing more and more frequent clogs, then there is a possible corrosion or mineral buildup which is something that does build up over a lengthy amount of time. Another common sign is if you are experiencing trouble unclogging your pipes, this would indicate that you have a possible large buildup.
The lifespan of a pipeline is around twenty years; over time, however, if the pipes are not maintained properly then these are some of the signs you will see. You will also see low water pressure, a higher water bill, or you are experiencing a pipe leak or multiple pipe leaks. You will also notice water discoloration if you pipes are heavily corroded; the discoloration will show a rust color or tastes like metal.
