Bio: Common Plumbing Problems in Old Homes
If your Victorian or Colonial house is stunning, you may still have plumbing issues that could jeopardize your investments. No reason exists to leave yourself vulnerable to water damage or mold. Our comprehensive plumbing services for the Arizona and California areas are provided by Candu Plumbing. Below you will find information on how to combat the most common problems that plague owners of older properties.

Hazardous or Outdated Materials
Materials in houses built in the mid-20th century may be unreliable or potentially toxic. Lead pipes, for example, were used widely throughout the US. However, they have been scientifically proven to be hazardous. Although metals that do not pose a safety risk are still susceptible to corrosion and damage. Pipes that have been galvanized often rust, which makes them prone to premature corrosion.

Poor Quality Repairs
Several older homes are also plagued by improperly performed repairs, replacements and installations. Previously, homeowners may have eschewed professional services in an effort to save money in the short term but ended up putting their property at risk in the long run. Bad repairs can put homes at risk for improperly flowing wastewater, hidden leaks, water damage, mold growth, and bacteria exposure. A system can also become non-compliant with current codes, standards, and regulations.

Failed Sewer Lines
A historical property's old cast iron sewer lines can also pose a major problem, especially if they use cast iron pipes that are more than 20 years old. It is imperative that you get professional help right away if you find signs of root infiltration or sewage leaks. Make sure you check for slow draining sinks, recurring clogs, foul odors, cracks in the foundation or wastewater backups. This is a classic sign that your sewer line is seriously damaged and should be repaired as soon as possible.

Pipe Bellies
Belly refers to a sagging pipe. Gradual shifting of the home may result in a negative slope, inhibiting the free movement of water. Generally, it affects pipes underneath homes. An untreated sagging pipe may cause water and soil buildup that can lead to chronic blockages or leaks.
