Old Plumbing Means Problems

Posted on September 3rd, 2015 by Jupiter Tequesta

Was your house — and its plumbing — built in the 60s or earlier? If so, then your plumbing system might be on its way out. At the very least, you’re more likely to run into issues with your pipes. Here’s why:

1. Galvanized steel pipes

Pipes made from galvanized steel are often problematic for homeowners. They tend to corrode and plug up, especially if they’re hot water pipes. Moreover, this type of pipe contains lead, making it unsuitable for drinking water. Allow us to inspect your pipes for areas that might require replacement.

2. Sewer line
