As time goes on, pipes age. This causes minerals to build up and the pipes to narrow. Older homes, built prior to 1980, have pipes that use galvanized steel which are known to corrode. When this type of plumbing is used, rust is more prevalent. Rust can also cause the pipes to narrow. All these factors can lead to the problems mentioned above.
Fortunately there is a solution! By switching the steel pipes to copper pipes, homeowners and builders can greatly reduce the plumbing problems. Not only can it extend the life of the plumbing system in your home, it can also increase the value.
