If your home was built more than 50 years ago and the plumbing system hasn’t been updated, it’s likely concealing damaged or deteriorating water supply lines. These older pipes can start to leak (usually without your knowledge) and lead to major water and structural damage in your home.
Call our experts at Bragg Plumbing Heating & Cooling for an immediate inspection if you suspect a problem with your water supply lines. We will identify the affected areas and let you know if repiping is recommended.
Signs You Need to Repipe Your Novato Home
Since water supply lines are often hidden behind your walls or ceiling, it can be difficult to notice problems right away. In some cases, a leak can go on for weeks or even months before the problem becomes apparent.
Fortunately, there are a few warning signs you can be on the lookout for so you can get the problem detected and resolved in time:
- Discolored water (often points to rust in the pipes)
- Sounds of water constantly running through pipes
- Moldy or musty odors in parts of your home
- Water meter continues to run nonstop
Don’t hesitate to contact our plumbers for an inspection if you think there is a problem with your water service lines. Our experts will take the time to check your pipes for leaks and present you with the best solution based on your particular needs.
Why Repiping is Recommended for Older Homes
Older homes may have pipes made out of outdated materials, such as galvanized steel, lead, or polybutylene. These materials were once considered industry standards, but if they are still in use today they are likely deteriorating and pose a potential problem to your home.
If there’s a leak in one area of your home, chances are the rest of your water supply lines are leaking as well (or at least suffering from decay). Deteriorating pipes can also burst unexpectedly and create a mess in your home.
This is why it’s crucial to have older water supply lines repiped as soon as possible. Reach out to our experts today to schedule an assessment and learn more about your repiping options.
