When do Rusty Pipes Need Replacing?

Posted on: June 15th, 2011 by zach

Homeowners should prepare a list of questions to ask a plumber to ensure he completely solves the rusted pipe issue and so that you understand the scope of the necessary repair work.

Rusty pipes usually need to be completely replaced if you find rust in your drinking water. In some cases, water coming from the pipes may appear rusty but the rust is coming from the water tank, not the pipes themselves.

Instead of replacing all of the pipes, the plumber can replace smaller sections of rusted pipe. If you’re living in an older home, you can take the opportunity to ask a Surrey plumber to switch the water supply line to plastic or copper piping to prevent future rust issues.
