Reasons to Upgrade Your Plumbing System
Most homeowners consider upgrading their plumbing system to add new fixtures or address inconvenient problems, such as:
- Low water pressure
- Hard water
- Too little hot water in the water heater
While these problems aren’t serious, they can quickly become a nuisance. A plumbing upgrade can improve your quality of life and help you save money on energy and water bills.
Top Four Plumbing Upgrades
1. New Pipes
Many old homes have galvanized pipes, which can corrode relatively easily. Corrosion causes several problems, including material breaking off into your water, leaks, and eventually burst pipes that can wreak havoc on your water bill.
We recommend replacing your existing pipes with copper pipes. Copper is corrosion-resistant and has mild antibacterial properties, making it a much safer option.
Pipe upgrades are also the perfect time to insulate your pipes to prevent freezing during winter. If you’ve had to deal with old pipes bursting in winter, covering your exposed pipes with insulation will provide peace of mind that you won’t have to face that hassle again.
2. Water-Efficient Toilets
3. New Hot Water Heater
4. New Plumbing Fixtures
Many homeowners find the addition of a laundry room to be a great upgrade, allowing them to have a dedicated space for their washing and drying machines. While adding these new fixtures requires more work than simply adding a new pull-out faucet, it offers a massive quality of life improvement for most households.
Speaking of pull-out faucets, this simple upgrade makes washing dishes faster and less water-intensive. They provide more versatility than traditional faucets and work in kitchens and bathrooms alike.
