If your house is more than three decades old, it is important to inspect any exposed pipes in utility rooms, crawlspaces, or your basement. Check the tubing for signs of flaking, pimples, dimpling, stains, or discoloration. All of these problems are indications of the major issue of corrosion. If you find any irregularities or are concerned about the condition of your fixtures, contact Plumbtree Plumbing & Rooter for plumbing services. We will send a highly trained plumber to perform a safety check on your system. You’ll want to watch out for water leaks too. Even small ones can indicate that it is time for a whole-house assessment. After all, the original pipes in your home may be worn out due to years of use.
