Pipes are the arteries of your home. When they’re in bad shape, the entire house is impacted.
It’s easy to forget that the water you use for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and bathing, travels through a delicate infrastructure within your home before reaching its final destination. When that infrastructure begins to age, and you neglect to take care of it, the consequences impact your entire living space — Just as compromised arteries can damage your entire body. In this article, we briefly explain why it’s so important to keep your pipes young and fresh.
The Risks of Refusing Repiping
When you neglect to maintain your plumbing over the years, you increase the possibility of a plumbing emergency. If you refuse to replace pipes as they exhibit signs of aging, your entire family will suffer the consequences. Your pipes will begin to leak near corroded joints, and water will damage your home as a result. This will make the house less sanitary and more uncomfortable for your family to live in.
You may also begin to notice an unpleasant taste when drinking tap water — that would be rust flowing through your corroded pipes. Failing to repipe your home as a cost-saving measure is simply futile because you can’t put a price on the health and safety of your family.
Reasons to Repipe
- Cleaner Drinking Water
- Eliminate Leaks
- Better Water Pressure
- Increase Home Value
- Replace Corroded Pipes
- Less Maintenance
