Do you know the signs to look out for when needing a repipe in your home? Most people will not fix the problem until they can visibly notice that something went wrong. Today we’re sharing the four signs to look for before you call a Lake Nona plumber to repipe your home.
Many homeowners don’t exactly know how to diagnose whether they have a pipe problem in their home because they don’t understand the signs. Signs can either be subtle or obvious, but it’s very important to catch any recognition of a potential problem before a bigger problem arises, that may be more expensive to fix. Here are the four signs to look out for when considering whether you need to call our Lake Nona Plumber to repipe your home.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure can be a sign of a rusted pipe. When corrosion builds up on the inside of the pipe, it will affect the amount of water that comes out of the sinks showers and more.
Discolored water is a little more obvious than the other signs but it is still something to look out for. If your water is brown or has a red tint that could mean the pipes are corroded and you need to call a Lake Nona plumber. When the corroded metal comes out of the interior and mixes with the water, this will cause it to be discolored.
Pipes and plumbing fixtures are designed to be as quiet as possible. If you hear a noise that you believe to be your plumbing, that will be a sign to you that something is wrong. Pipes and fixtures are designed with a balanced amount of high and low pressure. If it is not balanced it can make the pipes make loud noises. Don’t ignore the noise, it won’t go away, call our Lake Nona plumber to come assess the problem.
If you’re in the shower and it is colder than what you intended for it to be, this might be a sign to you that the pipes in your home are corroded. Hot water lines can often deteriorate faster than cold water lines. When these lines begin to deteriorate, debris gets trapped within and prevents these devices from working as they were designed to.
