Out With The Old
Was your home in Long Beach or Los Angeles County built before the 1980s? If so, you likely have galvanized steel piping. Although the pipes are dipped in molten zinc to help prevent rust, they can corrode over time. As a result, you can end up with leaks or a build-up that restricts water flow and can make it unfit for drinking.
How Long Does Galvanized Piping Last?
Galvanized steel pipes tend to last between 25 and 50 years, depending on whether soft or hard water runs through them.
It’s Time. What Are My Options?
All galvanized steel pipes eventually cause problems as they age. Once they’ve outlasted their lifespan, it’s time to consider replacing them. Prodigy can evaluate and re-repipe your home to give you a new, more efficient, and safer water system. Some popular galvanized pipe replacement options include:
- Copper: Lightweight, strong, durable, and resistant to corrosion
