If your home was built in the 50s the pipes underneath your home have reached their life expectancy. Brown water, or low water pressure are sure signs that you need to replace some pipes underneath your home. Flaking, dimpling, cracks, or corrosion are all normal for pipes that are old. They need to be replaced. Texas Plumbing sends out licensed professional inspectors to inspect plumbing daily. It's what we do.

Changing the pipes under your home requires heavy equipment like excavators, digging teams, licensing, permits, and is no job for a beginner. If one pipe has gone bad the rest of them are sure to follow. That's why we recommend re-piping your entire home when you notice one pipe go bad. With heavy equipment on site, and a team we don't see the point in having to come back again and again to change one pipe at a time. It's extra work, and you would save money by having us re-pipe the entire house the first time.
