Galvanized pipes (water lines) in older homes rust and deteriorate over time. As galvanized iron pipes age, the zinc coating gradually wears away, exposing the iron. The unprotected iron rusts rapidly in the presence of water, just as iron rusts when it is exposed to rain. Most pre-1970 homes were plumbed with this type of piping and will require repiping. The rust builds up inside the pipes, restricting the flow of water to fixtures which creates annoying symptoms such as:
- Low Water Pressure
- Shower temperature changes when a toilet is flushed or water is used elsewhere in the home
- Water quality is compromised by a foul smell or discoloration
- Rust spots in toilets and sinks as well as laundered clothes
As rust and deterioration worsen, pipes begin to leak. Often times, leaks are hidden inside walls, in the attic, or under the house, potentially causing major damage to your home.
