Pipe Repair Warning Signs

Pipe repair often gets forgotten about by homeowners because the pipes are hidden away from everyday life beneath the floor boards and walls of your home. This makes it hard on homeowners to even check to see if a problem exists. Some problems can turn into serious issues and you may not even know that it is going on. Leaking pipes can be concerning because oftentimes they will leak several gallons of water before the homeowner figures out anything is wrong.

Here are some warning signs to keep a look out for:

Rusty pipe water

When you turn on your water and you see murky water, this is an indication your pipes may need to be replaced. Rusty pipe water is unsafe and you could be putting your family’s health at risk.


If you see any rust spots throughout your home beware that this is an indication of rusty pipes behind your walls. This usually means your pipes need to be replaced altogether. Give us a call at Sun Plumbing and we will service your home quickly and efficiently.


When pipes start to wear away through a chemical reaction of the oxidation this causes pipe corrosion. When corrosion happens these toxic metals such as lead and copper become present in your drinking water. If your pipes are corroded you may see stained laundry, get a bitter taste from your water and a greenish-blue stain will be visible around drains.

Water pressure

When you have low water pressure in your home when taking showers this is another indication that you may need to replace or repair your pipes. Your pipes could be falling apart and if they aren’t fixed then your pipes could deteriorate.
