How To Tell If You Need Plumbing Repair Or Replacement

Your indoor plumbing is one of the most durable parts of your house. If you live in a home built post-1970s, most of your plumbing is made from corrosion resistant copper piping or PEX, PVC, and CPVC plastic piping, all of which can last for many decades without needing replacements or major repairs.

However, a plumbing system isn’t indestructible, and considering the amount of work that it does on a daily basis in your home, you will run into needs for repairs and sometimes even pipe replacement needs in your house. Don’t try to track down plumbing repair issues on your own and break out the amateur tool belt to fix it yourself. Instead, call professionals like the team at Ace Pelizon Plumbing. We offer high quality service for plumbing repair in Covina, CA and we have since 1957.

Here are some signs to watch for that will tell you it’s time to call for plumbing repair:

Continual Slow Drains and Drain Clogs

A single, isolated drain clog is usually nothing serious wrong with your plumbing, and if you can clear it with a standard plunger, you shouldn’t have anything more to worry about. But when heavy clogs that do not respond to a plunger start to occur on a regular basis, you could have major build-up of deposits in your drainpipes—or even damage to the sewer line—that requires the work of professionals. Plumbers will find out why your drains are developing constant clogs and provide the drain cleaning or sewer line replacements work necessary to fix the problem.

Signs of Leaking Pipes

Leaks along pipes are harder to detect than you might think: since most of your plumbing is hidden behind walls and floorboards, it may take days or even weeks for you to notice the warning signs. Look out for rusty stains along walls, warping or bulges under the carpet, mold and mildew appearing in unusual spots, and increases in humidity. Also keep a watch on your water bills for sudden rises that you cannot explain. Skilled plumbers will use leak detection to pinpoint where the leaks are occurring, reach the pipes, and then either seal the leaks or replace the pipes.

Drops in Water Pressure

If the water coming from faucets, showerheads, or other taps throughout the house start showing a drop in water pressure, you could have a number of major problems with your plumbing. Although it is possible that this comes from the municipal system, don’t take any chances: the issue could be breaks or leaks along your water line, and you will need to have line replacement done before you lose your water supply entirely. Water pressure drops could also come from serious leaking in other parts of the house, or a build-up of hard water deposits.
