Homes built before 1980 were commonly built with galvanized (steel) pipes. These pipes are known to rust. It is common for a one-inch galvanized pipe to become so clogged with rust deposits that you can’t even see all the way through it.
As a result, you may experience clogged drains or low water pressure. In the worst cases, it can cause your pipes to leak or burst, which can cause damage.
If you notice any visible signs of rust on your pipes, or if you have issues with clogs or low water pressure, it is our recommendation that you have them replaced with copper pipes. Copper pipes do not rust. We specialize in copper repiping, and will be more than happy to provide you with a free estimate.
