Old Pipes

Old galvanized metal pipes installed in distant past in older homes can be a time bomb. Useful life span for galvanized water pipe is about this kind of pipe is about 20 years. Pipes buried under ground in moist soil can deteriorate even faster. Customers often complain about low water "pressure". But most of the time this is not the case. Buildup of rust and gunk inside water pipe reduces pipe diameter and restricting water flow.

Galvanized old pipe will fail first on treaded joints.
