A basic plumber can help you clear away pesky clogs, install new plumbing fixtures, fix broken pipes, and more. Sometimes, however, you may run into issues with your pipes where you need them fully replaced. This is when repipe specialists can be beneficial. Here are three signs you need to hire a repipe specialist.
- Multiple leaks and repairs: Pipes tend to corrode and deteriorate once they’ve reached then end of their lifespan. This can result in multiple leaks and cause for repairs. If you’ve had to schedule multiple repairs for leaky pipes or other pipe issues in the past year, it’s a good sign you’ll need your pipes replaced entirely instead of just patching them up. Repipe specialists are just the people for the job.
- Bad tasting or smelling water: If your water smells or tastes off, it could just be an issue with the water filter or a simple plumbing issue. It could also be caused by deteriorating pipes that are at the end of their lifespan. If your plumber identifies this as your problem, you will need repipe specialists to replace your pipes.
- Noisy pipes: The occasional trickling or creaking noise coming from your pipes is fairly normal. Clanking, banging, or rattling noises coming from your pipes are often more serious and could be leading up to major leaks or burst pipes. You will want to hire a plumber and maybe even repipe specialists right away.
