When it’s Time to Get New Pipes for Your Wisconsin Home
The type of plumbing in your house determines how long you can expect it to last. If you live in an older house, then more than likely you have experienced some plumbing problems due to faulty or outdated pipes. Copper, brass, and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) are the most common materials used for plumbing pipes, and often last up to 80 years. However, bad pipe maintenance and hard water deposits can lead to pipe degradation and rusting, causing an entire house repiping to be a necessity.
Completely repiping your southeast Wisconsin home is a hassle, and can add up to costing a lot of money, but the experts at Hartlaub can work together with you and help you find the best price for a new home plumbing system. Give us a call today for an estimate.
4 Factors to Consider before Repiping Your House
- Is your house over 80 years old? Older homes that have never been repiped before will likely need an entirely new plumbing system installed as soon as possible. Houses that are 50+ years old often have galvanized pipes, which have been known to break or corrode over time.
- Do you have low water pressure? Low or fluctuating water pressure when using your faucets could indicate you need new pipes. Rust or mineral buildup is common in older pipe systems, leading to less water coming through and resulting in low water pressure.
- Is your tap water discolored? Rust buildup from older pipes and plumbing systems can lead to your tap water turning brown or reddish brown. Galvanized pipes, which are often found in older homes, tend to rust or corrode over time, causing your water quality to drop.
- Are leaks and broken pipes common? While occasional isolated pipe leaks can happen, they don’t necessarily mean you need to repipe your entire house. However, multiple pipe leaks becoming a common occurrence may make you consider repiping your entire house, if only just to save money on constant repairs.
Repiping your whole house will take time and money, but if you are experiencing constant plumbing problems related to old or faulty pipes, then repiping would be the most cost-effective solution. The professionals at Hartlaub will help you find the best price to fit your budget for a new home plumbing system!
