Pipe Replacement For Your Chicagoland Area HomeIt's a fact that plumbing systems don't last forever, and the older pipes become the more likely you are to experience leaks and water pressure issues throughout your home. To prevent plumbing problems in older homes, repiping is often necessary at some point.
A key factor in determining whether repiping is necessary is the age and type of pipe material. For supply lines, these materials include:
Brass 80-100 year lifespan
Copper 70-80 year lifespan
Galvanized Steel 80-100 year lifespan
Drain lines are usually made of one of the following materials:
Cast Iron 80-100 year lifespan
PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) 24-40 year lifespan
The symptoms of damaged or deteriorating pipes include:
- Low or inconsistent water pressure
- Rust colored water
- Leaks (higher than usual water bills can be a sign of a water leak)
- Banging pipes (water hammer) and other plumbing noises
