Signs that you may need a pipework replacement

Here are a few signs that your plumbing work needs professional attention:

  • Odd sounds from your faucets: if you hear strange screeching sounds from your drains, whenever they are turned on, it might just be a sign of failing plumbing work. When sounds come from your pipes, it generally indicates the presence of air in them, which means something, is wrong with your plumbing work.
  • Unpleasant smells from your drains: when nasty smells emanate from your plumbing, it could be a sign for replacement. For example, if this disgusting scent is within the kitchen sink, it could be a sign of food build-up in the drainpipe. The smell of a rotten egg, on the other hand, indicates a blocked drain vent that allows sewer gas to back up into your pipes and enter your home. Since these problems may vary in terms of severity and how often they occur, not all will require pipework replacement. Regardless, it is essential to reach out to a professional plumber for ideal solutions and action.

  • Low water pressure: low water pressure is a prevalent issue, especially when the home is old. Generally, low water pressure is often caused by leakages and blockages in your pipes. However, while this may be very common, it is usually challenging to detect the root cause. A professional plumber should be called when you notice this symptom, to avoid unnecessary confusion.
  • Sluggish drain: when your drains are slower than usual, it may be a sign of blockages in the pipe. You can try cleaning the drain yourself with a cleaning solution or a drain snake. Notwithstanding, if you have tried the above solutions, and you still can’t seem, to fix the problem, you may need to seek the advise and help of a professional plumber.

Other signs include:

  • Pipe Leaks
  • Pipe cracks
  • Wet baseboards
  • Stained or warped flooring and wall

Although the above-listed symptoms may sound like the usual plumbing issues you often experience regularly, care should be taken to avoid neglecting significant plumbing problems.

Take the necessary action

If you have noticed any of these problems in your home, it is crucial you get an experienced plumber who can diagnose and proffer suitable solutions to the problem. You may just be surprised to find out that the seeming pipework you feel should be replaced, might need a few touches from an expert.
