The Signs Pipes Are Failing
One clear indication of failing pipes is a noticeable decrease in water pressure or a lack of hot water. Reduced water pressure often points to potential blockages within the pipes, which, if left unaddressed, could lead to more severe plumbing issues in the future.
Furthermore, if you notice pools of water around sinks, bathtubs, or other fixtures, it could be a sign of a significant leak occurring behind the walls, calling for an immediate investigation by one of our licensed professionals.
These are direct and visible signs of pipe failure. However, there may also be subtler warning signs, such as:
- Higher monthly utility bills. A sudden spike in your electric or gas bill might indicate leaks within the plumbing system.
- Unusual odors emanating from drains and sewers can further serve as signals that the pipes are failing. The accumulation of debris within the pipes, including food scraps, can cause clogs and unpleasant smells to permeate.
Keeping an eye out for these signs can help ensure timely plumbing repairs and prevent further damage or more costly repairs in the future.

What to Consider in Pipe Installation
When embarking on a pipe installation project, it is necessary to consider several different factors. The choice of the correct pipe material is paramount, as different materials offer varying levels of durability and longevity. It is important to select a pipe that is large enough to avoid blockages or restrictions yet fits seamlessly into the existing infrastructure.
Common piping options include:
- ABS Pipes
- Rigid Copper Pipes
- PEX Pipes
- PVC Pipes
Each pipe serves a distinct purpose and function. Our experienced team will carefully assess the unique characteristics of each property to provide specifically tailored recommendations.
Accurate measurements and calculations are essential when installing pipes, especially when navigating through walls or ceilings. Factors like wall thickness and insulation may necessitate additional materials to accommodate the pipework. All of this is aimed at ensuring proper functionality and alignment of fittings.
