When to Replace Your Plumbing

At Riverside Plumbing, we know that maintaining the integrity of your plumbing system is crucial for the smooth functioning of both residential and commercial properties. Knowing when to replace various components of your plumbing can prevent costly repairs and disruptions down the line. Here’s an essential guide on identifying the right time to consider replacing your plumbing.

Signs That Your Plumbing Might Need Replacement

1. Age of the Plumbing System

  • Residential: Most residential plumbing systems need consideration for replacement after about 50 years, especially those using galvanized steel or cast iron pipes.
  • Commercial/Industrial: High-grade materials used in commercial settings can extend this lifespan, but they still require regular assessments to ensure integrity.

2. Frequent Leaks

  • Frequent or multiple leaks can be a sign of a failing system. Materials can deteriorate over time, leading to weaknesses that manifest as leaks.

3. Visible Corrosion

  • Corrosion on visible pipes often suggests more extensive internal damage. If you notice greening on copper pipes or rust on steel ones, it might be time to call in a professional.

4. Water Discoloration

  • Brown or yellow water, especially when first turning on a tap, can indicate pipe corrosion. Persistently cloudy or foul-smelling water should also be investigated.

5. Decreased Water Pressure

  • Sudden or gradual loss of water pressure without an obvious cause might indicate sediment build-up or pipe degradation.

Solutions from Riverside Plumbing

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, our team at Riverside Plumbing offers a range of solutions tailored to your needs:

Why Replace Instead of Repair?

For many plumbing components, especially pipes, repair might only provide a temporary solution. Replacement can often be more cost-effective in the long run, avoiding repeated repairs. It also offers an opportunity to upgrade to modern, more efficient materials that can improve the overall functionality of your plumbing system and even increase property value.
