Until the 1960’s, galvanized pipe with a protective zinc coating was a frequently used pipe material for residential plumbing in Sugar Land, and elsewhere. Over time, the zinc coating erodes, leaving the unprotected steel to rust. The consequence is frequent water leaks and severe damage to the home’s structure and its foundation. Those with homes containing galvanized pipe are strongly urged to schedule repiping before damage occurs. Due to the age of galvanized pipes and the potential for leaks, repiping is strongly recommended. Contact a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumber in Sugar Land to schedule repiping.
Water chemistry can play a role in the reduced lifespan of your home’s plumbing in Sugar Land. Hard water is one common contributor to pipe deterioration, and our plumbers can provide a water softener installation for the added protection of your plumbing.
Once rust and corrosion have set in, the onset and frequency of repair in galvanized pipe increases. Furthermore, repair is only a temporary solution, only re-piping can provide a long-term solution for worn, corroded pipes. In addition, repiping provides the benefit of eliminating low water pressure caused by corroded pipe, and supplies the home with cleaner, safer water. Water quality is a factor often overlooked in homes with corroded galvanized pipe. Corrosion, and hard water buildup can lead to bacterial contamination, placing your health at risk.
When frequent pipe repair is required, and when accompanied by damage to the home, and/or mold remediation, the complete replacement of galvanized piping is the wisest choice you can make.
