When your home has pipes that may be nearing the end of their service life, being aware of the potential signs will alert you to the need for repiping:
- Low water pressure throughout the home can be an indication of corrosion building up within the pipe interior, including the main water supply line.

Galvanized pipes are likely to exhibit signs of advanced deterioration by delivering rust colored water, frequent leaks and providing low water pressure from pipes whose interior is clogged with rust and scale.
