3 Signs You May Need New Pipes

New Pipes 53237632729 400x267 1

Although the chances of degradation are higher over time, having old piping in your home doesn’t necessarily mean that it needs to be replaced. The time to consider replacement of your home’s plumbing pipes is when you notice some obvious issues. Read more to see what you need to look out for.

 

Experiencing Water Damage

Whenever you see stains from water, on your walls for example, make sure to call a professional plumber as soon as possible for solutions. Leaks can be incredibly damaging, even small leaks can end up causing you lots of property damage over time.

 

Strange Colors In Water

When your water has yellow, orange or brown discoloration to it, this can be a sign of rusting and corrosion in the plumbing system. Pipes that suffer from rust buildup are more likely to burst or clog. Rusty water will also taste metallic and gross, and can pose a health risk for your family.

However, if you get your home’s water from a well, odd colors may be a natural occurrence due to the minerals in your well water. If your well water tastes or smells off, have a professional plumber perform a water test to the find the source of the discoloration. You want to be sure that it is not from a serious issue that will cause you problems down the road.

 

Unpleasant Water Odor

Strange smells can be a telling sign that your piping has issues. An eggy smell can indicate gas buildup in your plumbing pipes; if your water smells like pavement, it means you have a buildup of manganese; smelling of sewage is a sign of too much iron. A good water filtration system may be all you need to solve the problem, but if not, piping replacement may be required

I was referred to Doug's by a friend, I was greeted on the phone by a very friendly receptionist who took all my info, all that was great. The problem is our technician who came to service my rental property. He was full of attitude, and not professional what so ever according to the tenant. He acted like he was inconvenienced to be making the service call. He called us with the recommendation and pricing, and when we said we would take care of the minor maintenance ourselves, he told our tenant "good luck, because we don't want to spend the money". Hopefully this technician, Samuel, isn't a reflection of Doug's. We all have jobs to do, and if you don't like your job, find a new one! I also left a message for the supervisor to give me a call back yesterday as soon as I found about this information, and have yet to receive a call back.

Just recently moved to Louisiana and I bought a gas stove. Unfortunately, the old owners had an electric one and I don’t know how to change electric outlets or gas line/valve stuff. So, to make a long story short the home is older and has fuses and breakers. So, for my own safety and comfort I contacted them. They were very responsive and were able to get me in the same day! When I googled an electrician Doug’s was the first one to pop up. I’m so glad that him and a team member came to my home and installed two new outlets with correct wiring for the gas stove and switched out the gas valve and knew where the shut off was. So, now I can go to sleep knowing it was done correctly and will not have any issues! So, thank you Doug’s!!!! I will definitely use them again if needed!
