Watch Out for These Signs

Here’s a few signs that it’s definitely time for you to consider a repiping job.

Your Pipes are Noisy

A telltale sign of pipe failure is a noisy piping system. Pipes start to make banging and creaking noises when they’re getting older—think of it as your pipe’s way of alerting you that it’s time for a replacement. Don’t just chalk it up to the sounds that an old house makes or the innocuous noises of your home adjusting to different weather conditions—call a professional.

Your Water Smells Funky

Poor tasting or poor smelling water means that your pipes might be in the process of deteriorating. If the smell has become particularly foul or noticeable then it’s time to call a professional. This either means that you have one big problem on your hands or several small issues. It’s time to repipe!

Poor Temperature Control

If you have trouble getting your desired temperature throughout your home then it might be time to take a closer look at your piping. When your pipes get older, it can cause disproportionate changes in the temperature of your water even you apply even pressure to knobs and valves in your home.


This is sign number one that you’re having trouble with the pipes in your home. If the issue is localized to just one area (or one faucet) then it might just be a problem with that specific joint or segment. If the problem is something that you battle against throughout all different areas on your home, then you’re having trouble with your entire piping system. Struggling with leaks indefinitely is a real annoyance—invest in your home comfort with quality repiping services.


When was the last time you took a good look at the piping in your home? If it’s been a while, then we suggest that you take a peek now. If you notice corrosion or rust on your piping then it’s about time to replace the pipes in your home.

Problems with Your Water Pressure

When you turn on your shower, do you have frustratingly low water pressure? Or maybe you’re having an issue where the water pressure increases or decreases throughout the duration of your shower. This is a clear indication that the quality of your pipes is under quality. It’s time to replace them.
