You know that saying, “you’re only as old as you feel?” Sometimes your plumbing feels that way, too. Your plumbing, if it’s been well-cared for and serviced routinely, can last well beyond its expected lifespan. But how do you know when is it time to replace a plumbing system? Here at 1st Choice Plumbing, provide re-piping plumbing services. These are some of the most common indicators that it’s time to update your plumbing:

  • Mold growth – When mold starts growing around your home, there’s a problem. A plumber will need to check up on your plumbing system because damaged, old pipes lead to moisture problems. This can cause mold to grow in your home and behind your walls.
  • Dirty, smelly water – If your water starts smelling strangely and it’s no longer clear, you might need new pipes. These two signs should be cause for concern.
  • Consistent problems – Finally, if your plumber’s number is on speed dial, it might be time to get your pipes inspected. Every homeowner experiences plumbing troubles every now and again. But when it’s an everyday occurrence, you should be concerned about the state of your plumbing system.
