Is It Time to Replace My Plumbing? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you decide if it’s time to upgrade your plumbing.

When you were headed out for a leisurely stroll around the James Museum the other day, you noticed that one of your neighbors had called in contractors to do some work around their house. That started you wondering if you should do some upgrades – a better kitchen or bathroom, for example. Or maybe you should simply have someone check to see if other areas of your home need updating – your plumbing, for example.

“Nothing lasts forever, including the pipes inside your house. Over the decades, the tubing gradually corrodes, rusts, and decays. Unless you replace plumbing, you’re eventually going to get leaks—and possibly a flood of water or raw sewage into your home that causes thousands of dollars in damage to your building and belongings,” says.

Whether you replacing your pipes or other plumbing fixtures depends on many factors. Among those factors is age. Depending on the type of pipes you have (pvc or lead, for example), you can expect your system to last for 25 to 100 years, assuming all goes well.

If you have an older home and you’re not sure if your piping needs replacement, suggests you watch for signs of trouble. Those signs include watching for leaks and checking the tubing for “discoloration, stains, dimpling, pimples, or flaking, which are all indications of corrosion. If you find irregularities, bring in a plumber to do an inspection.

“Also, when you fill your bathtub, look at the color of your water—especially after a vacation when it has been sitting in the pipes for a while. If the water looks brown or yellow, what you’re seeing is rust, a sign of decay inside the pipes. Consider replacement soon.”
