The majority of water pipes last a long time because they are built to be durable. However, this doesn't always mean that your current pipes are going to last forever, and unless you have had new work installed recently, it is unlikely that you will know exactly how old your pipes are, and whether they will last much longer.

If you are worried about product durability, calling in a plumber to your Bonny Hills home can help. All Ways Drains want to offer you some help in making your pipes last longer.

Look at the visible pipes


You should be able to examine some of the pipes around your home by looking at areas under your sink, and washing machine. You can determine exactly what type of pipes are likely to be used by examining the ones that you can see.

For example:

  • Copper pipes. These are extremely common, and are likely to last for 50 years and more.
  • PVC pipes. These may give you a greater age range, but they can be more fragile if they were installed between the 1970s and the 1990s.


Acting on leaks


We know that many people choose not to call All Ways Drains when it comes to water leaking from pipes. They may attempt to fix it themselves, or put in a temporary solution.

What this means is that you are not responding to damage to the pipes, and this could result in extended problems further down the line.

Caring for pipes


You could benefit from longer-lasting pipes if you make the effort to take care of them. For example, you could easily ensure that they remain in good condition by not pouring fat and debris down them regularly.

Use drain clearance liquids every so often to make sure that your pipes are clear.

Calling in a plumber


If you are still not certain about whether your pipes will last for much longer, then you need to call in an All Ways Drains plumber to help inspect your pipes. T

hey will be able to give you information about the condition and age of the water pipes, and tell you when they will require upgrading.
