You Should take a closer look at your water and sewer system. Many homes that were built up to 20-30 years back may have galvanized pipes, which are now known to be vulnerable to corrosion and are potentially hazardous. Fortunately, the Best Plumbing team can help you identify if your pipes are galvanized and install new piping if necessary.
Galvanized pipes are iron pipes that have been coated with a layer of zinc. They were commonly used in homes that are built in last century. The problem with these pipes is that over time, the zinc erodes, causing corrosion to form on the inside walls of the pipes.
There are several issues that can arise from galvanized pipes. The first is that the corrosion sediments can clog the pipes, slowing the flow of water. This may result in low water pressure throughout your home. The second problem is that when the zinc lining corrodes, it can leach lead and other impurities into your water. A third concern is the increased potential for undetected leaks. Generally, when a pipe springs a leak, it’s near a seal or where two pipes meet — which can make them easier to spot. However, in the case of deteriorating galvanized pipes, leaks can occur anywhere along the pipe where rust has corroded through. This means that even if they’re small, these leaks can cause considerable damage before you locate them.
