As with everything else, there is a lifespan associated with the many items in our home ranging from our appliances, the furniture and eventually the piping in our home as well. So, if you brought an old house, you should get the plumbing inspected firsthand so that the plumber can give you a better idea of how long the piping will last. Of course even if you don’t choose to get the pipes inspected beforehand, there are a couple of obvious signs that you can look out for that will indicate that it is time to get your old pipes changed.

Basically, if you find out which material it is made of, you can find out their lifespan and the subsequent problems that can arise once it reaches its lifespan. So that if said problems arise, you will know that your pipes need to be replaced.
  • To check for rust and corroding in your pipes, all you have to do is run your water a little while longer so that the water that has been sitting with the pipes gets to come out. If the water has a brown or yellowish tinge, then it means that your pipes are rusted.
  • Experiencing intermittent leaks is also a strong sign. While you can choose to get that specific area replaced, you will know that it is time for you to get all of the pipes replaced because they are no longer able to support each other.
