Galvanized pipe is a steel piping material with a zinc coating installed until the 1960’s. Over time, the protective zinc coating of the pipe wears away, leaving the unprotected steel to rust and corrode. Consequently, galvanized pipe in older homes is a frequent cause of leaks and costly damage to the home’s structure and its foundation. Due to the age of galvanized pipes and the potential for leaks, repiping is strongly recommended. Contact a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumber in Fort Worth to schedule repiping.
Galvanized pipe typically rusts from the inside out. Eventually, water leaks will occur. Furthermore, hard water will compound the problem, with buildup occurring inside the pipe, resulting in blockage and low water pressure.
