Are Your Old Drain Pipes Crumbling? Here's What To Do

Blog

Are the drains, traps, and other pipes in your home starting to corrode, crumble and cause problems? There could be many reasons why this is happening, like the age of the home or drain cleaners and other harmful products that have been used throughout the years.

If you are facing another plumbing problem where a pipe or plumbing components is crumbled and ruined, it's time to update the plumbing in your home. Talk with a plumbing contractor about these things to get started and to get estimates.

PVC Plumbing Options

PVC pipes are a very versatile, flexible, durable and safe option for the home. They are affordable, easy for the plumbing contractors to install, lightweight, and flame resistant. PVC pipes are available in longer sections than metal, so they have fewer joints and connection points. If you know that you need to make an upgrade and that the plumbing needs a lot of work, but you are worried about budgets and costs, this is a great, high-quality material that will help to improve the plumbing and your home.

Water Softening Solutions

Part of the reason that your pipes may have been falling apart could have been because of problems with your water that you weren't aware of. Consider getting your water checked out and improving your water softening system so that you don't have to worry about hard water any longer. This will improve conditions for hardware in bathrooms and sinks and with any of the appliances that will use the water while they run.

Appliance Inspection

Since there were plumbing problems with the old pipes, it could be very likely that there are also problems with the pipes that go into the appliances, or with the appliances themselves. The inspection will allow the plumbing contractor to see if some of the appliance pipes need to be repaired right away or if other internal components of the appliances were damaged by the water or just got old. It may be necessary to replace some of your appliances if they are damaged and corroded also.

You don't want to keep paying for repairs and for replacement pipes and joints when you are dealing with plumbing problems, so it may be time to get PVC pipes instead. This is a low maintenance and affordable option that will help to put your plumbing worries at ease and that will help to improve your house. For more information, contact local plumbing contractors
