Signs that your pipes need to be repaired or replaced

Regular plumbing inspections can assist you in identifying piping issues before they worsen. To stay ahead of the curve, keep an eye out for the most common signs that your pipes need to be repaired or replaced.

Visible corrosion

If your pipes are showing signs of corrosion, it's time to replace them. Pipes with flaking, discoloration, or rust should be replaced.

Cracked pipes

Cracks can cause pipe leaks. A simple repair may be sufficient if a pipe has a small crack but is otherwise in good condition. Pipe replacement may be required if there are large or multiple cracks.

Aged pipes

Pipes have a long lifespan. If your pipes are nearing the end of their useful life, you might be better off replacing them with newer, more energy-efficient models. Winters results in freezing pipes as well which needs to be fixed.

Low water pressure

If you notice a drop in water pressure, it could be due to corrosion in the pipes, which restricts airflow.

FAQs on Pipe Repair

How do I choose between pipe repair and pipe replacement?

In general, replacement is recommended if a pipe is older, severely damaged, or partially or completely collapsed. A Home Mechanics plumber in Boston, MA, or the surrounding areas will also give you an honest opinion so you can make an informed decision based on your specific situation.

How can I avoid having to make an emergency repair?

Begin by scheduling camera inspections every 1-2 years so that we can quickly identify minor issues with your pipes. We also recommend keeping a separate can for grease and cooking oils and being cautious about what you flush and discard down the drain.

What should I be aware of regarding trenchless pipe repair?

Trenchless pipe repair in Boston, MA, and surrounding areas is a method of pipe repair that saves the original pipe by repairing it from the inside. This is usually accomplished by applying a special type of coating material that hardens to form a durable, smooth surface.

When are conventional pipe repair methods superior?

If it is necessary to fully expose the pipe for safety or logistical reasons, we may recommend a traditional approach rather than something like a pipe bursting. If more than one pipe in the same area needs to be repaired or replaced, traditional repair may be recommended.

What is the process of pipe bursting?

If repairing the pipe is not possible, we may recommend burst pipe repair, which is a method of replacing the pipe without traditional excavation. It is a procedure that entails removing the damaged pipe and replacing it in the same location.

When is it time to replace your plumbing pipes?

Because different pipe materials have different lifespans, consult your plumber about the expected life of your pipes and plumbing connections. When remodeling your bathroom, kitchen, or basement, replacing your plumbing is a good idea.

Keep in mind that maintenance, frequency of use, and water quality all impact your pipes' lifespan. If you suspect a problem with your plumbing system, contact a professional plumber right away.
