Signs of plumbing rust in your water might call for pipe replacement, a major issue that should be handled only by a professional Denver plumber. Knowing how a minor corrosion can lead to bigger problems like leaks and flooding, a homeowner should understand when pipes must necessarily be replaced or when a repair will suffice.
Different types of pipes are used to create a plumbing system that works properly. A plumber called in for pipe replacement has to first find out the age of the pipes currently installed and the material component of these pipes. Supply pipes can last for 70-100 years, cast iron drain pipes for 80-100 years, and PVC drain pipes for 25-40 years.
