Signs That Its Time To Upgrade Your Plumbing Fixtures

Any experienced plumber will tell you that better the quality of plumbing installations, longer their life. That is why quality-conscious property owners prefer excellent quality plumbing systems and face no problems for decades.

But every system has an expiry date, and it is better to replace the system with a new installation once it reaches the end of its functional life. This is more so when you live in an older house with older plumbing systems. Purchasing an older house also brings with it a deteriorated plumbing system.

If you need any plumbing upgrades, call SPS Inner West, the local well-known professional plumbers. We can provide repair and maintenance, new installation as well as customised plumbing upgrades and renovations solutions.

When Do You Need A Plumbing Upgrade?

If you are alert, you will notice the signals a plumbing system gives about an impending problem. Here are some such common signs that indicate the need for a plumbing upgrade:

1. Excessive or Low Water Pressure

Water pressure should be neither low nor excessive. Low water pressure is annoying because it makes all water-related activities like washing, bathing etc., more time-consuming. Excessive water pressure is not good, as it stresses the plumbing system and pipes.

The moment you start experiencing any lower water pressure problem, it may indicate some problem with pipes. The reduced water pressure is due to a build-up in the pipes that impedes the water flow and reduces the pressure.

If the water pressure becomes excessive, the problem may lie with the pressure-limiting valves. We handle these problems quickly with the use of the latest tools and equipment and knowledge of the plumbing systems.

2. Change In Water Colour

Sometimes, you find discoloured water coming out of the faucets or shower in your home. It signals the need to upgrade the plumbing system. Sometimes, minor repairs fix the problem, but you need a skilled and licensed plumber to determine the nature of the problem and provide a solution.

  • Rusted metal pipes in old plumbing systems cause water discolouration as the rust mixes with water and lends it a brownish colour.
  • If the colour of the water is blue or greenish, the problem lies with the copper and brass plumbing installations.
  • In case there is a mould build up in the pipe system, black water flows from the faucet.

If you notice any change in the colour of the water in your home, call us immediately. If the water is anything but crystal clear, it is a serious health hazard.
