3 Warning Signs Your Plumbing Needs Repiping, Honolulu, Hawaii

Plumbing is responsible for heating, cooling, and sanitizing the water that is distributed throughout a residential or commercial facility. Therefore, when a structure’s piping system starts to show signs of leakage, discoloration, or overall inefficiency, scheduling a professional repiping service may be in order.

3 Signs You Should Seek Repiping

1. Water Leaks

A leak in your water line signals the need for repiping. After years of use, pipes and water lines are subject to erosion. By inspecting your pipe system, a professional plumber can determine the degree of repairs required. If your pipes are suffering from a few leaks, it is likely that only a few fixes will need to be made. However, if a substantial number of leaks are discovered, it may be beneficial to replace the whole piping system.

2. Water Discoloration

repipingDiscolored water is a warning sign of piping problems. Often, a water supply will become tainted with brown or yellow water when a water heater reaches its prime. Usually, water heaters can last about 10 to 15 years before requiring replacement. That being said, rusty pipes could also be the cause of discolored discharge. When the interior lining of a piping system corrodes, it is safer and more sanitary to repipe rather than clean the whole plumbing system.

3. Faint Water Flow  

From a closed valve to a clogged sink faucet, low water pressure can be traced to a variety of causes. For instance, plumbing blockage is one of the most frequent causes of weak water flow. Over time, mineral deposits, debris, and other sediments can build up in a water line system and clog the pipes. Leaking may also cause low water pressure. In this case, a full repiping service is usually required.
