Reasons to replace the pipes
Have you heard stories about the problems associated with leaks from your friends and neighbours who have gray or blue poles, are in an older home, or have frequent leaks? Maybe you think it won’t happen to you. But problem piping can cause a lot of stress and plumbing emergencies. There are many reasons why you should consider to replace the pipes in Bournemouth.
Why you should replace your piping
You may think you can rely on your plumbing. You expect to go to the sink, turn it on and run the water. But if the pipes deteriorate or have problems, it may only be a matter of time before the plumbing becomes unreliable and a waterline bursts. Gray and blue polybutene piping are also well known for their problems. These types of piping are not reliable. There is no doubt that not having running water would be an inconvenience. And with these types of piping it always seems to happen at the worst possible time. It is recommended to replace all galvanized and polyethylene pipes.
If you’ve ever had to deal with sporadic leaks, know the cost of repairs. Sporadic leaks lead to more frequent leaks throughout the system. And although replacing the entire system can be expensive, it can save you money in the long run because those constant repairs with the damage they cause add up. Although an old house has probably undergone extensive repairs with the plumbing, unless it was completely replaced with newer piping, the repairs were only a temporary and partial measure. There is some old or problematic piping left that is prone to leaks. You don’t want to think about future headaches, so rest assured with a total replacement.
The age factor
It is important to know what type of pipes you have in your home and the lifespan of those pipes. Knowing the condition of those pipes is too important. Well-maintained pipes can last longer than poorly maintained ones or those found in areas with hard water (high mineral content). Knowing the age and condition of the pipes can help you take steps to prevent leaks, flooding and potential health risks.
The growth factor
When considering replacing your pipes, don’t overlook the outside lines. In case you have mature landscaping and trees around your home, you may have an all-too-common problem with tree roots causing havoc with your plumbing. You are responsible for the water and sewage on your property. Your waterline liability starts with the meter on the street and runs through your home. Your sewer liability runs through your home down to the meter. The older the lines, the more likely there are older trees with roots located close to them that can cause damage.
