Your home’s piping is something you don’t think about … until there’s a problem, and by then it might be a very big, expensive problem.
Pipes, especially those in older homes, can rust, corrode, and decay, which can cause leaks. When you have a water leak, you won’t really know what you have until you have a professional check out the problems. When pipes get old, or leaks happen that are hard to determine, it’s time for re-piping your home.
Why re-pipe your South Florida home?
- Your home contains lead or polybutylene pipes – if your water is flowing through lead pipes, it can be contaminated with toxic lead, which is harmful for your family. Polybutylene pipes were popular in homes built from the 1970s to the 1990s, however they are poor quality and are prone to breaking.
- Corrosion – if your exposed pipes are showing signs of corrosion, the pipes you can’t see are probably corroding as well. Pipes showing signs or stains, dimpling, flaking, discoloration, or pimples are corroding and need to be replaced immediately.
- Brown or yellow water – If your water isn’t clear and colorless, it means your water is mixing with rust that’s on your pipes.
- Leaking – Because your pipe system was most likely installed at the same time, if you see one small leak, it won’t be long before the rest will start leaking. If there’s a leak you can’t see, it could be causing more damage to your home.
