    Dangers of Old Plumbing in Victoria

    Older homes that were built before the 1960s commonly have galvanized iron pipes being used in their plumbing system. These pipes are made from steel that has been covered (inside and out) with a layer of zinc for protection. Zinc can erode from the pipe walls and build up in your system causing issues for your plumbing system and the health of you and your family.

    If your home has an old plumbing system that is in need of a replacement our team at Drain Pro can help. We offer reliable replacements for old plumbing systems in Victoria, BC. Get in touch with our team today!

    Impact Old Plumbing Has on Water Quality

    As old pipes, especially those made from galvanized iron, corrode over time, lead can accumulate and be released into your drinking water. Lead is dangerous for humans to consume and can lead to a variety of symptoms such as:

    • Fatigue
    • Headaches
    • Insomnia
    • Nausea
    • Poor appetite
    • Metallic taste in your mouth
    • Reduced productivity
    • Irritability
    • Weight loss
    • Hyperactivity

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I know whether I need plumbing replacement?2020-08-28T19:44:08+00:00

    Sometimes plumbing equipment can wear down over time and potentially fail. If this happens, you could end up with a nasty pipe leak or burst pipe that causes flooding and water damage to your home. That’s why it’s good to be aware of the condition of the pipes and plumbing in your home. For older homes in Victoria & Lower Vancouver Island, this means a plumbing inspection is a good idea. Newer homes can still experience plumbing issues where plumbing replacement is called for. At Drain Pro, the leader in Lower Vancouver Island & Victoria plumbing, we’ll do our best to keep your costs down by performing plumbing repair whenever possible.

    How often do I need to replace my water pipes?2020-12-10T19:52:51+00:00

    There are many different types of pipes that work together in your plumbing system. Their lifespans vary depending on the material they are made of:

    Supply Lines

    • Copper Pipes: 70-80 Years
    • Brass Pipes: 80-100 Years
    • Galvanized Steel: 80-100 Years

    Drain Lines

    • Plastic PVC Pipes: 25-40 Years
    • Cast Iron Pipes: 80-100 Years

    Damage to these pipes can still happen at any time across their lifespan due to clogs, freezing, tree roots, or weather conditions and need be repaired or replaced. If you live in a very old home and aren’t sure when the last time the pipes were inspected, give us a call for an inspection and we can recommend any replacements that may be needed.

    Why do some of my fixtures have low water pressure while others don’t?2020-12-02T18:13:58+00:00

    There are a number of reasons why some of your fixtures could be experiencing low water pressure while others aren’t. The good news is that if this is the case, then the source of the problem is easier to find!

    Starting at the point where water comes out of the faucet or shower head, we will inspect the various components of the fixture for problems. If nothing is found, then we will trace along the pipes to find where the issue is.

    Having one of our licensed plumbers provide an inspection is the quickest and easiest way to find the cause of your low water pressure problems and provide the best solution to fix them.

    What causes my water to become discoloured?2020-12-02T18:13:17+00:00

    Depending on the colour of your tap water, the cause could be a number of things. The most common colours seen are:

    • White/Cloudy: Extra air trapped in your water as it moves through your pipes. You can tell if the tap water becomes clear in a glass after a minute or two. This tends to happen when water pressure is high and should be checked out to avoid future plumbing problems.
    • Yellow/Brown: Dirt and naturally occurring sediments can settle at the bottom of supply lines despite the water treatment process and get shaken up when water passing through the pipes speed up due to a water main break, or high service demand.
    • Orange/Brown: If your house uses cast iron pipes, they will corrode over time. As this happens, tiny iron and manganese particles fall off the inside of the pipe as water passes through it. This is a sure sign that the pipes need to be replaced.
    • Visible Black Particles: Rubber materials such as gaskets and O-rings begin to break down as they get older. As water flows through the pipes, pieces of these rubber parts can break off and end up coming out of your tap. This is another sign that plumbing replacement service is needed.
