The life of a plumbing system depends on the quality of the features and installation. A high-grade plumbing system serves you for decades without disruption. Quality-conscious property owners never compromise the robustness of a plumbing installation regardless of cost. That doesn’t always mean the system will work efficiently forever. It needs maintenance, repairs, and replacement as it wears out.

How to Know When It’s Time to Upgrade Your Plumbing System
A plumbing system is essentially a silent one. However, when problems start brewing in it, various components start sending signals. If you are observant, you will easily notice these signs. We list here some common signs that indicate you need to upgrade you’re your pipes:
1. Water Pressure Change Problems
Maintaining water pressure at a particular level is necessary for an even flow. Low water pressure is annoying and makes every water-related task time-consuming. Excessive pressure damages the pipes and your overall plumbing system too.
If you notice that the water flow less than usual from a faucet, some build-up in the pipe must be causing the problem. On the other hand, too much pressure indicates some problem with using the latest methods, tools, and equipment.
2. Rust-Coloured Water
Old plumbing systems have metal pipes that rust. When rust mixes with the water, you see discoloured brownish water flowing from the faucets or shower. You need to call a licensed plumber in St George to look into the problem and suggest a solution. Sometimes, the issue can be resolved with minor repairs. However, in the case of very old pipes, you need to upgrade the system by replacing the pipes.
Apart from rust-coloured water you also need to be wary if you notice blue, greenish, or black colour. All of these signal problems within the plumbing system. Deterioration in copper and brass installations is the cause of blue or greenish water which results in mouldy, black water. Water must be crystal clear, and any other colour is a sign of an impending health hazard.
