Repiping Plumbers in Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR
Old homes have character. They have history. That’s why we love them. Until that character bites us in the form of pipes that leak, clog frequently, or (the real nightmare) burst. Trust our repiping plumbers in Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR, to address the problem accurately.
Pipes have a service life, and if your house is in one of the many wonderful older neighborhoods in Portland or Vancouver, your pipes have likely outlived theirs. If you’re reading this, you’re probably already worried your pipes may have aged to the point of needing replacement and chances are you’re right.
Signs Your Pipes May Need Replacing
Your Water Bill Is Creeping Up – Small leaks cause your water bill to steadily rise. Many homeowners don’t realize they are paying an inflated water bill each month due to small leaks that slowly drive up their water usage. Maybe your teenager’s marathon-length showers aren’t fully to blame for your financial duress.
Discolored Water – Brown, yellow, or hazy water is usually the result of rust inside your pipes. This is a significant health risk. Don’t get in the habit of letting it run off until the water turns clear. Address this problem right away.
Frequent Clogs – If you swear your pipes clog more than others, you’re probably right. Rust in outbound plumbing can lead to frequent clogs and slow drainage.
Your Water Doesn’t Pass the Lead Test – Pipes in older homes (early 1900s) sometimes contained lead. Get your water tested for lead content and if there are any traces of lead you need to replace your pipes immediately.
Oddly Healthy Portion of Lawn – This may not be a miracle; it may be a sign that leaky pipes are doing a really fine job keeping that part of the lawn extra luscious.
Low Water Pressure – Leaks or rust blockage can result in reduced water pressure and an unsatisfying shower experience.
Visible Corrosion – All corrosion should be investigated by a professional. If you can see that there’s a problem, then there’s a problem.
The Age of Your Pipes – Pipes from the early 1900s – 1960s were designed to last between 70 and 100 years. Pipes commonly used from the 1970s – early 2000s are less prone to rust and corrosion but more susceptible to breakage.
You Just Sort of Feel It May Be Necessary – Sometimes it’s smart to trust your gut. This is especially true when you’re dealing with something that has an impact on your family or employees’ health and may prevent significant damage and expense down the line.
