How often does plumbing need to be replaced?
How often your plumbing needs to be replaced depends on several factors, but the primary one is the type of piping installed in your house. Different materials (copper, steel, plastic, etc.) have different lifespans. How well you treat your piping also affects how often it needs to be replaced.
Here are additional signs you may need to replace your piping:
- Your pipes need constant repairs and attention
- There are signs of water decay, discoloration and leaks
- Your drains lines endured damage from tree roots or severe weather
- You’re remodeling your home
When in doubt, always ask a plumber for their expert opinion.
