- Does dealing pipe replacement peeve you? You are not alone, but whilst you despise the idea of replacing pipes in your home, you just got to have to face the facts and let the experts do what they need to do. At the end of the day, you’re the one who will benefit from the inconvenience that you’d have to deal with anyway once your pipelines are again, fully-operational.
Pipe Problems that Require a Pipe Replacement Specialist to Fix Immediately
Pipe Corrosion – As you can imagine, pipe corrosion is greatly attributed to the quality of water that flows in your pipe and water pH level tops on the list of factors that makes your plumbing corrode prematurely. This is especially true with copper pipes. Water pH that isn’t balanced can interfere with the pipe’s lifespan. It can eat through the pipe making them corrode even before its expected end of service life. Oxygen levels, mineral content, temperature, and too high water pressure are some of the culprits why pipe corrodes. The compounding effect of these factors though doesn’t happen overnight, but can spell disaster in your plumbing in the long run.
- When pipe corrodes, it loses its structural integrity to the extent that it can easily give in to even simple clogs. So, if you start noticing your water pressure seems to slow down even if you didn’t adjust it, or the water appears to have color and smell, contact the specialist right away. Issues like these are indications of pipe corrosion and it can be most damaging to pipes. Corrosive pipes that are continuously used can also pose risk to health. If you don’t want that to happen, ask the pipe replacement experts to locate the exact location of the corroded parts in your pipe and replace it immediately. But if you want your water supply line to work without interruption for another possible corrosion to happen, you may want to replace the entire pipe instead.
Collapsed Pipe – Pipe reaches its point of collapse when it shows signs of problems but it is continuously ignored. For example tree-root causing clogs that were left unaddressed. This can make your pipe crack and break, and ultimately collapse. That’s why it really pays off to let a plumber look into a plumbing situation right away, or to do an inspection on a regular basis to identify signs of future problems. When a portion of your pipeline collapses, your drainage and sewer system will have a hard time managing all the wastewater passing through. So, if you notice you’ve been frequently experiencing a clog, be concerned. In many instances we found tree roots to be the number one reason why pipes collapse. If you don’t want to reach this point, don’t wait any further before calling a pipe replacement expert. Roots can grow 2x their length and will give you more trouble than you can imagine. So, speak to a sewer pipe replacement specialist right away to replace the portions or entire part that has collapsed.
Frequent Clog Situations – A single clog situation may not be a serious matter, but repeated clog situations may mean something more. If your pipeline is not in good condition, for the case of breaks or cracks in different portions of the pipe, these breaks or cracks can trap debris and dirt that are traveling down the line. They will then cause buildup to develop, leading to episodes of clogs. If you don’t ask a sewer pipe replacement or drain pipe replacement specialist to replace the part that has gone bad, there’s a big chance these cracks and breaks will become bigger and bigger every time you use your drainage system, until it eventually gives up and collapses.
Sewer leaks – Your sewer system plays a vital role in making sure all the waste is diverted to the main sewer line. If it has leaks, there’s no way your sewage or your dirty water can travel through the pipe and reach its destination. This will lead to sewage flooding in your property or in your yard. Seeing pooling water around the property is rather nasty and can encourage health hazards. Therefore, if you notice unexpected wet spots in your yard, near or directly above where your sewer line runs, contact the experts right away. Especially if you have huge trees in front of your house and you have an old sewer system. Tree roots can find the leaks in your sewer line, grow inside and ultimately make it collapse leading to a costly pipe repair.
What should you do?
Replacing pipes in house may be something you don’t think you need, but if you’re already experiencing the situations above, your only best chance is to let the experts do their job through complete repiping. This is because only fixing the part that has gone bad is no guarantee that another plumbing mayhem will no longer crop up. It will only increase your repair cost if that is the case. So regardless of the inconvenience, cost, and turnaround time repiping may take, it’s still best to consider pipe replacement if you want your plumbing to work optimally for decades.
