Pipe Repairs and Replacements
Homes built before 1970 often used galvanized iron pipes, which were coated with zinc. After years of use, these pipes become corroded and rusted causing your water pressure to drop and water to develop a brown tint. Water using appliances such as the refrigerator, dishwasher, or coffee maker can also become damaged due to the rusty water.
If you notice any of these signs, your home may be in need of some serious pipe repair. Today copper or PVC piping is used which allows for better water pressure, better water quality, and longer lasting appliances.
Consult your Catons plumbing specialist if you have any piping concerns including:
- Leaking pipes
- Sweating pipes
- Frozen pipes
- Noises coming from pipes
Typical pipe leaks often occur near fixtures such as sinks, tubs, and toilets. Sometimes, however, the pipe itself can actually be the root of the problem. Depending on the severity and location of your plumbing problem, the pipes may need to either be repaired or replaced.
Consult your local Catons plumbing expert if you find that your pipes have any of the above mentions symptoms.
