It can be hard to know when to replace your old plumbing. If it still works properly then there is no reason to replace it just because of its age. However, there are several signs that can be an indicator that it is time to upgrade. By looking through the list below, you can be sure that you’re prepared if you ever come across any of the signs that it may be time to replace your plumbing.
1) When the water stops being clear: It’s no secret that water is supposed to be clear. If you notice that your water is murky or any other color, there might be a problem.
2) When water starts to smell: This can be a sign of bacteria buildup within your plumbing. If your water smells like eggs, you should definitely do some investigating. Water that smells like eggs is a good sign of bacteria buildup.
3) When you begin to notice mold and water damage: If you notice brown water stains on your walls, mold, or a dripping pipe, call a local plumber right away. Remember, leak pipes happen from time to time. Your plumbing will more than likely be okay if you fix small leaks in a timely fashion.
