Drinking Water Through These Pipes?
Galvanized pipes are usually found in homes over 40 years of age. Commonly, these pipes will rust from the inside out. The pipes will corrode over time and this rust accumulates, restricting the flow.
Sometimes, if the water is not in use for long periods of time and then turned on, you will see that the water is brownish in color or that fixtures have become rust-stained. Doesn’t it make sense to have your systems upgraded on YOUR schedule, before they rupture and cause damage.
Q: Won’t this kind of extensive work cost a fortune?
A: Although cost is really subjective to each individual, the cost to upgrade your home’s plumbing system is an investment that will have benefits for many years to come. Water that’s safer to drink, more water pressure, less faucet and fixture maintenance and, in the worst case, averts the possibility of catastrophic failure.
