Your home plumbing system is the most important system in your house. Without proper plumbing, you might be without water, or even worse, a backup of unsanitary water. A faulty plumbing system could be repaired in most cases, but there are times when you might need to replace your entire plumbing system. Take a look at our four helpful tips to find out when it is time to replace your home plumbing system below!
You are Paying Too Much in Repairs
If you find that you’re shelling out dollar after dollar to patch up pipes, it could be time to consider replacing your plumbing network. The average amount that homeowners will spend annually on plumbing repairs will vary a bit by company, but you should have an estimate in mind of how much it could cost to replace your home plumbing network. With that number in mind, you’ll know if the amount of repairs is starting to exceed your replacement cost. If this is the case, give us a call at Mahon Plumbing, we can provide you with a fair estimate.
Your Plumbing System is Old
In a few states, outdated plumbing systems can be a violation of city or state codes. Do you have old copper or steel pipes in your house? If so, it could be time for an upgrade. If you are wondering about your old pipes, then the best route to take would be to hire a certified and professional plumber to come out and inspect your system. We at Mahon Plumbing can analyze your system and determine the differences between a system that needs repairs and a broken down system that needs an upgrade.
Your House’s Market Value
Whether you’ve recently just bought a home or are selling a home, the plumbing is an important system that will determine its market value. In some states, anyone selling a home has to undergo a home inspection to determine your plumbing system’s condition. If your pipes aren’t up to code, a total plumbing system replacement might be mandatory. You’ll also want to take a look at your home’s warranty and your insurance company’s regulations on plumbing systems.
Consistent Leaking and Sounds
Is there any standing water underneath your home? Do you ever hear banging and other odd noises every time you turn on your faucet? This could mean that your plumbing is on the verge of falling apart. Noises are typically caused by faulty installation. Leaking is also caused by loose connections and corrosive pipes. Either way, this is a clear indication that you need a new plumbing system installed.
