Pipe Replacement


Pipes comprise the majority of your plumbing system. Unfortunately, they don’t usually outlive the lifespan of your home and will need to be replaced probably a few times before your home needs replacement.

Different pipe materials have different lifespans:

  • Brass: 40 to 70 years
  • Copper: 50 years
  • Galvanized Steel: 20 to 50 years
  • Cast Iron: 75 to 100 years
  • PVC: Can last 100+ years with the right conditions

These listed numbers are ideal lifespans, and not all pipes will make it through to their average life expectancy. Fayette’s expert plumbers are ready to provide professional pipe replacement and repiping services in Lexington and the surrounding areas in Kentucky.

Signs Your Plumbing Pipes Need to Be Replaced

If you see or notice any of these problems, they are indicators that your plumbing pipe system needs to be repaired or replaced.

Watch for:

  • Discolored Water: This indicates problems with your water supply. You may need new internal piping, or you may need to replace pipes underground in your property. Trenchless pipe repair is a great solution to avoid digging a trench.
  • Bad Odor: If your water smells metallic, it can indicate that your pipes are rusting and losing pieces of material, which floats into the water.
  • High Water Bills: A spike in your water bills often means a break in your water line. Watch for water damage or a soggy lawn.
  • Leaky Pipes: Leaky pipes often mean your pipes are degrading or they were installed improperly and require repair.
  • Mold: If your pipes are molding, there’s water getting loose somewhere.
  • Slow Drainage: Your pipes may be broken or clogged. The clog may be cleaned, or it may be more severe and require replacement.
  • Rattling Pipes: Rattling pipes indicate something is wrong. Sometimes this is as simple as a loose bracket or screws, but sometimes it indicates poor installation. Rattling can mean water speeds up while moving through pipes; this speed will degrade pipes from the inside faster and shorten the pipe’s lifespan.
  • Pinhole Leaks: Pinhole leaks are small, tiny holes in your pipes. These tiny leaks are easily patched but shouldn’t be ignored. They indicate weakened integrity inside the pipe, which may burst at any moment.
