Reasons to replace your supply lines.
Water lines and pipes can be a homeowner's best friend or worst enemy, depending on how well they are maintained. It's important to know that even if your water supply line doesn't look like anything is wrong with it, it could be at risk for breaking and causing costly repairs and water damage. If you find that you have a broken supply line, it's best to replace it right away so that your home doesn't experience any further problems.
Wear and Tear
As you know, the supply lines that bring water into your home are often not visible. This means that they can break without you knowing it, causing costly repairs and water damage. In addition to this, older supply lines are more likely to break than newer ones because of their age and material (plastic).
If you have an older home with plastic piping, it's time for a change. The good news is there are many options available for replacing your old pipes with PVC or copper piping systems that have been designed specifically for homes like yours.
A supply line is the pipe that connects your home's plumbing system to the city or town's water main. The supply line is what brings fresh, clean water into your home. If a broken supply line isn't fixed quickly and properly, it can cause extensive damage to your property and lead to costly repairs.
If you find that you have a broken supply line, it's best to replace it right away. Broken supply lines can be a fire hazard and can also cause water damage. Additionally, they could lead to mold and mildew growth on your walls or ceiling if not addressed immediately. Replacing the entire faucet system is expensive, but replacing just the supply lines will help prevent these issues from occurring in the future!
Even if it doesn't look like anything is wrong with them, your supply lines should be checked at least once a year.
