3 Signs That Your Pipes Are Corroded

Since all your pipes are hidden inside your walls and floors, how are you supposed to evaluate them for corrosion? You can’t even look inside pipes! Don’t worry. Corrosion always reveals symptoms in other areas of your home, particularly your water.

Poor Water Quality

When water flows through corroded pipes, it doesn’t come out your faucet unaffected. Some things to keep an eye on are color, smell and taste. Water from corroded pipes might take on a brownish or blue-green color. It also might smell or taste metallic from the metal pipes it ran through.

Poor Water Pressure

If enough corrosion has formed, the inside of the pipe can shrink. This might cause bad water pressure throughout the home as the water struggles to make it through the tight pipes.

Strange Water Temperature

Fluctuations in your water temperature can also indicate corrosion. Corrosion is more likely to occur in hot water pipes, so sudden changes from warm to hot water can be a sign that the corrosion has affected the anti-scald mechanism.

What Causes Pipe Corrosion In Oklahoma City?

The basic definition of pipe corrosion is that a reaction has occurred between the metal of the pipe and the water or air it’s exposed to. This reaction causes rust and other corrosion to form. Some of the most common causes of corrosion are:

Acidic Water — pH levels below 7 are considered acidic, putting your pipes at higher risk for corrosion over time.

Water Hardness — The chemicals and minerals in your water can also contribute to corrosion. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Oklahoma’s average water hardness is 146 PPM. This is considered hard water.

Oxygen Level — Overly oxygenated water can increase the likelihood of corrosion. Water with low pH levels is commonly over-oxygenated.
Water Velocity — The speed that your water travels can be a cause of corrosion, especially if there are a lot of bends and corners in your pipes or if the water is hot.

Dangers Of Corroded Pipes

In addition to deteriorating your pipes prematurely, corroded pipes pose several health risks to your home. Water exposed to corrosion can start to stain the drains, tubs and sinks with blue or brown color. It can even tint your laundry and hair! Other appliances and fixtures will almost certainly become damaged as well. Corrosion can even make your water unsafe to drink.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I Highly Recommend This Company!

I know about this company because my neighbors needed plumbing repair but of course the problem was located in my backyard. Blaine and Joe were fabulous! They did their very best to put my yard back as it was and to make sure my fence was secured so my dogs wouldn’t escape. And they were really kind and understanding of the situation. I highly recommend this company!

Professional and Friendly

I have had Hi-Tech repair two hot water slab leaks in my home this year. Both times they were prompt in scheduling the initial inspection and the actual repair, clear on the costs of the project, and what all work would be done. And on top of that, everyone has been very professional and friendly. I would 100% recommend them for any plumbing project you may have!
