When to Repipe
No one wants to pay for a big, unnecessary project, but as a proactive homeowner, you want to make sure your plumbing is replaced before it becomes too much of a problem. So how do you decide when it’s time to repipe?
One reason to consider repiping is excessive age. Are your pipes old enough that safety or even proper function are compromised?
Signs that your old pipes may need to be replaced include:
- Rusty water
- Lead concerns
- Corrosion due to acidic water
- Low water pressure, which may mean your pipes are experiencing mineral buildup
- The need for frequent repairs
If you’re not sure, it’s a good idea to get a Pittsburgh plumber’s opinion. At Matt Mertz Plumbing, Inc., we can assess your piping system and give you an unbiased recommendation. We care about our customers and we won’t recommend any work that’s unnecessary.
At What Temperature Do Pipes Freeze?
Generally, residential pipes begin to freeze when the outside temperature drops to 20 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Because Pittsburgh can get really cold in the winter, it’s important to protect your pipes located outside of your house.
Ways to Prevent Frozen Pipes:
- Disconnect your house from the outside faucet
- Leave kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors open
- Keep water faucets running regularly
- Keep your garage door closed at all times
If your pipes have frozen over and burst, contact our Pittsburgh plumbers. We provide fast, non-invasive pipe repairs and replacement services.
