Here in Oregon, leaky pipes are one of the causes of molds’ development that can spread to the entire house. It will eventually make your home inhabitable.
Visible Corrosion on Pipes – if you see stains or discoloration on your running water, chances are your pipes are corroding inside. Outdated galvanized steel pipes are highly susceptible to corrosion due to age and the materials used.
Low Water Pressure – if you are experiencing low water flow, the most common reasons are corrosion and sediment buildup. They both block the water from passing through the entire pipe and put unneeded pressure on particular sections of the tube. It may also cause the pipes to burst from the water pressure.
Water Discoloration – Yellowish, reddish or brownish color in your running water are the clear signs that corrosion and sediment built up in your pipes are present. Please don’t wait too long to get it to repipe because a more severe problem is nagging at you.
