Commercial Plumbing ServiceIf you’re living in an older Lake Worth home, you may be curious if you’ll need to replace your pipes. If you’ve been dealing with an increase in plumbing problems lately, it may be time to replace your pipes.

Signs of Pipe Issues

If you start noticing any of these signs around your older home, give General Plumbing a call.

  • A leaking foundation
  • Sounds of water running without faucets on
  • Low water pressure in the home
  • Water that appears rusty or has a strange odor
  • Sinking lawn
  • Constant drainage backups
  • Aging plumbing system

While there can certainly be a variety of reasons for each of these issues, General Plumbing doesn’t want to make assumption or cut corners where your home is concerned.

Tree Root Problems

It’s far more common to have problems with tree roots cracking or even growing through pipes in older homes. these homes tend to have more mature trees and, as a result, those root systems are much more invasive and expansive. Tree roots in sewer line systems are one of the most common ways for your piping to suffer damage.

If you think you may be dealing with root damage, we’ll be happy to schedule an appointment to use our camera inspection technology in order to get an accurate picture of what’s happening underground.
