Should I have My Galvanized Pipes Replaced?
If your home is 50 years or older, there is a good chance that you have some galvanized pipe in your system. These steel pipes were used because they were thought to be resistant to rust due to the zinc coating on the outside of the pipes.
However, they do rust, generally from the inside out, releasing corroded metal and particles into the water supply. These particles wreak havoc on appliances and cause leaks and clogs and even contaminate drinking water.
If your home still has some galvanized pipe there is a good chance that they have outlived their life span. This type of pipe generally lasts about 40 years before it starts to corrode to the point that the pipes start to become clogged with an accumulation of the minerals and rusted pipe particles.
Some signs that you may have a problem are: decreased water pressure, rust colored water, stains on your sinks and tubs.
