Pipes are made to last many years, even decades, but the truth of the matter is that they cannot endure forever, no matter how well they were installed originally. In some cases, this has to do with old age, so if your pipes are extremely old, it is a good idea to invest in a pipe inspection to check whether you need repiping. However, just because your pipes are relatively new does not mean that they are completely safe.
Some of the other reasons why you may be required to invest in repiping include:
- Corrosion from harmful chemicals: One of the greatest contributors to damaged pipes are the chemical cleaners that homeowners pour down their system. These harsh materials eat away at the inner lining of your pipes, creating large holes.
- Shifting soil: When the foundations of earth below the surface shift (even if you do not feel it), this can cause tremendous damage to your pipelines.
- Constant clogging from foreign objects: You should only pour dirty water down your pipes and never let larger fragments of debris fall into your drains. When foreign objects like hair, keys, paper towels, sanitary products, and other objects accumulate within the pipes, they create huge clogs. The resulting pressure can cause your pipes to fracture or even burst.
