Two weeks ago we talked about the different types of repiping materials. Between copper and different types of PVC, there are a whole host of great materials that can last for years to come when you’re in need of a pipe replacement. Now we must beg the question—when would you need to replace your pipes?
Well, as a team of professional plumbers in Boynton Beach, FL, we’d tell you to replace your pipes for a number of reasons. If you’re dealing with constant leaks or if your plumbing system doesn’t work as it should, then we suggest you replace your plumbing system.
However, another reason why you might want to consider replacing your pipes is if you’ve got lead pipes in your home. Many older homes that were built before 1960 have lead piping, and it can be bad for your home in a number of different ways.
