Do My Pipes Need to be Replaced?

Rusty, outdated pipes.

As a homeowner, have you ever put much thought into your home’s pipes? Most people don’t until something goes wrong. However, pipe repairs and replacements can be a huge expense if you wait too long to address the issues. In this blog, Precision Plumbing, Heating & Air will discuss a few different signs that indicate your pipes need to be replaced. If you’re experiencing any of the below signs, it’s time to call the professionals.

Decreased Water Pressure

Decreased water pressure is one of the first signs that your pipes are starting to fail. If you notice a decrease in water pressure, it’s best to check your water heater first to ensure there’s nothing wrong with it. If you know it’s not your water heater causing the decrease in water pressure, it's time to give us a call at (803) 310-6262.

Discolored Water

Discolored water is another sign that your pipes need to be replaced. If you notice your water is starting to look yellow, brown, or red, it might mean that there is rust inside of pipes that is contaminating your home’s water supply. You definitely don’t want to be drinking or bathing in discolored water, so make sure you contact Precision Plumbing, Heating & Air as soon as you notice this problem.

Visible Damage

Visible damage to your pipes is another clear sign that your pipes are outdated and need to be replaced. If you see any cracks, leaks, rust, or other damage, don't hesitate to contact our team.
