Signs of Outdated Plumbing

Schedule Online

If you’re living in an older home, chances are that your plumbing is outdated. While pipes are made to last for many years, their constant exposure to the elements will cause them to rust, corrode, and eventually sustain issues beyond repair. Lack of maintenance could also shorten their lifespan.

When something goes wrong, a plumber in Phoenix, AZ from Zippity Split Plumbing can come over and make immediate repairs. If your plumbing is outdated, you will notice some red flags.

Continuous Leaks

If you are constantly noticing leaks in your pipes and fixtures, it signifies a problem with your plumbing system. You may begin to see wet spots on your walls, ceilings, and floor. The source of the leaks may be coming from the pipes hidden behind the structure. Constant leaks may require an extensive plumbing repair.

Low Water Pressure

A low water pressure issue that you can’t adjust by yourself may indicate that you have outdated plumbing. Your water heater might have malfunctioned, or your pipes could be leaking or already past their prime. As soon you notice this problem, get in touch with Zippity Split Plumbing for prompt plumbing services. We’ll inspect the system for signs of issues and offer the most practical solution.

Clogs and Slow Drains

You may need emergency plumbing if you have clogged drains or if water is draining too slow. There are several possible culprits of this issue. Your pipes may be old or blocked, or there might be tree root infiltration in your sewer line. Whatever the specific cause of the problem, you’ll need the assistance of a plumber to investigate.

Discolored Water

The water coming out of your taps or pipes should be clear. If it’s discolored, specifically reddish or brownish, it means there’s rust in the water. Meanwhile, if this happens with only the hot water, the problem lies with your water heater. If it occurs with hot and cold water, you probably have outdated pipes made of corrosive material. When left neglected, it can pose health risks to you and your family.
