Do Old Pipes Affect The Quality of My Water

Do Old Pipes Affect The Quality of My Water?

These days more than ever people are concerned about the quality of water that makes its way into their home. While municipal water is treated before it is ever allowed to make it into our homes or businesses, this water still can become contaminated as it works its way through your plumbing system.

While the quality of municipal pipes is out of our control, the pipes in your personal plumbing system may be a factor in the quality of water you are receiving. This is why it is important to have your plumbing inspected and updated as necessary, to avoid further contamination.

Old pipes that are made from galvanized steal are no longer used in plumbing systems. Materials such as copper and PVC have replaced galvanized steel, however, if you have a home that was built in the 1970s or earlier, you may still have galvanized steel plumbing in your home.

Galvanized pipes will corrode which can lower the quality of water that flows through your plumbing system. This means your drinking water may be hazardous to consume. Lead and cadmium can be found in water that has traveled through corroded steel pipes. Both are potentially dangerous, especially for young children. As a pipe corrodes, more of these metals will be released into the water. If your water is developing a metallic taste, it may be due to old pipe corrosion.

The plumbing professionals at AAA Select Plumbing can inspect the quality of your pipes to determine if they are safe for your space. We work with home and business owners to ensure they are getting the highest quality off water in their homes.
