There are times when the pipes in and around our home are better off replaced. These instances vary, but generally replacement is a better option depending on the age and style of pipe in and around your home.

Hawaii homes have long since dealt with issues related to outdated building materials. More than 20% of Hawaii homes were built prior to 1960, which means that the materials used to build them may wear down and cause issues. One such material that can cause harm are galvanized pipes.

Galvanized Pipe Replacement Oahu

Galvanized pipes are steel pipes dipped in protective zinc coatings to prevent corrosion. They sound great, but they are proving to be hazardous.

 

Galvanized pipes were extremely popular from the late 1800’s through the 1960’s. They were better than lead pipes, but scientists have since discovered that galvanized pipes actually have some flaws that are potentially dangerous to people. The zinc coating is actually known to break down and react with minerals in the water, producing rust and other sediments.

 

If your home has galvanized pipes and you are experiencing plumbing issues such as slow water pressure OR you are investing in renovations for your home or business, it might be a good idea to think about pipe replacement. This process may be a bit more expensive on the front end but it will save you a lot of trouble in the future.

Galvanized Pipe Replacement Indicators

Some other signs to look for include:

 

  • Rust around and on pipes
  • Discolored water coming out of the pipes
  • High lead content

 

If you experience any of these issues, you need to talk with a professional about them and get them fixed before a bigger issue arises.
