How to Improve Your Water Quality with Pipe Replacement

06/19/23

Your home and plumbing grow older over time. This can result in your water quality diminishing as well. Replacing your old pipes can improve your water quality exponentially. Here’s exactly how old pipes can cause poor water quality and the additional benefits of getting them replaced.

First, What Happens if Your Pipes Are Old?

Many problems can occur when your water pipes are old. Updating your plumbing system can help to prevent a lot of issues in your home. Below are the most common problems that old pipes can cause.

Leaks

When you don’t replace the old pipes they become prone to leaks. This is a very common issue, especially in older plumbing systems. When a leak occurs in your pipes, dirt and minerals can enter your water supply.

 

Finding the leak may be difficult for a homeowner to do. For this reason, it is recommended that only a licensed professional complete the pipe replacement. If your leak is due to old pipes, your pipes may have other areas that can already have issues or will soon if they are not replaced or fixed in a timely manner.

Corrosion

When water and minerals eat away at the inside of the walls of your pipes, corrosion takes place. This can lead to various issues, including ruptures, leaks, pressure buildups, and mineral clogs. The only way to remedy corroded pipes is to have them replaced.

Emergency Repairs

Emergency repairs can happen when your pipes are corroded or old because this makes them more likely to spring a leak or crack. But really expensive emergency repair bills can be completely avoided with proactive intervention.

 

In order to save money in the long run, replacing your pipes is the best thing you can do for your plumbing system.

Dirty, Bad-Tasting Water

Have you noticed that your water smells and tastes dirty or bad? This can happen when there’s corrosion or a leak in your pipes. Your water system will carry the rusted and corroded pieces of pipe downstream to you through your drinking water.

How New Pipes Improve Your Water Quality

In most cases, you’ll be able to notice the benefits of new pipes right away. Here you’ll learn the top three ways that a new water pipe system will instantly improve the quality of your water.

 

Cleaner Water

One of the main concerns of a home water supply is its cleanliness. When your water pipes are replaced you’ll instantly notice how much cleaner your water is. With brand-new pipes, your water will no longer have rust or dirt in it, making it safer for consumption and better tasting.

Free From Corrosion

Having pipes that are free from corrosion will ensure that rust and minerals are kept out of your drinking water. This can be dangerous for consumption and make you and your family sick if it’s not addressed quickly.

All Pipes Are Made From The Same Materials

If your water pipes are made of more than one type of material or metal it will increase the speed at which the pipes break down. By replacing them all at once and ensuring that all your pipes are composed of the same material, you will prolong the life of your plumbing system.

Other Reasons to Replace Your Piping

Aside from your water supply being cleaner and the increased timeline of your pipes, there are a few other reasons to have your plumbing system replaced.

Decreased Risk Of Weak Or Busted Pipes

As we previously learned, ruptures and busted pipes can be caused by corrosion of the inside walls of your pipes. Having a pipe replacement can help prevent your pipes from bursting, resulting in costly repair and replacement bills.

Increased Property Values

Sometimes plumbing is the last thing that people think of when it comes to the property value of their home. But replacing your pipes can actually increase the property value of your home because you’ve put more money into a system that will last longer than old plumbing.

Can You Replace Plumbing Pipes Yourself?

In an attempt to save money, many homeowners may ask themselves this question. And, to be fair, things such as shower heads and faucets can be replaced entirely on your own without the help of a licensed plumber.

But if you’re experiencing leaks or corrosion in your water pipes, a licensed professional will need to complete the job to ensure it’s done properly and safely. They possess all of the tools, experience, and knowledge to complete the job correctly.
