Water lines tend to wear out over time, especially if they are older pipes that have been functioning for years already. Factors such as corrosion, temperature changes, new structures being built, the slow shift of the ground, and root intrusion often leave little choice besides completely replacing the line. Common indicators of the existence of a problem are: low water pressure, flooding, and contaminants in your water supply.
Lead Pipes Replacement
Lead pipes are a health and safety hazard according to the City of Toronto. Despite this, many older homes still use them, and getting them replaced as soon as you can is in the best interest of your health, and the health of your loved ones. Lead is a toxin that is absorbed into the body and stored in the muscles and bones, meaning that the damage will continue after the pipes have been removed, but replacing them will minimize their impact.
The pipes are a dull silver colour, and is soft with a powdery coating that scratches away. After 40 years they corrode into the water, entering our bodies and causing permanent physical and neurological damage. The City of Toronto’s website has many tips and resources on mitigating the damage, as well as programs to help individuals replace their pipes.
