A second symptom of degrading pipes is the loss of water pressure that often occurs when a major part of the piping system is suffering from corrosion and rusting materials. Newer homes are often fitted with pipes that offer a lower level of corrosion protection, a home of five years of age or more will generally be in need of new pipes to ensure the safety and cleanliness of the water arriving in the property.
