Depending on the age and condition of your home, you may find yourself dealing with constant water leaks which becomes costly and offers a potential for disaster with corrosion, mold, flooding and more.
For instance, if your home was built in the 1970's or prior, you most likely have cast iron drain lines. Cast iron tends to rust and corrode over time causing cracks, holes and leaks. Also, lead water pipes were not restricted from use in California until the late 1980's, and even then the requirement was that the pipes contained no more than 8% lead.
If your home was built between 1995 and 2007, your water lines may be made up of Kitec Pipe which is now banned from use in the United States do the high zinc content of the fittings, among other issues. To read more on Kitec, please click HERE to visit our homeowner's section.
