Additionally, loose rust inside your water pipes can transform into crystals which can cause lack of water pressure or a complete obstruction. However, when rust continues to transform and build, it can penetrate the pipe completely and cause a major leak.
Unfortunately, one of our customers has recently had a loss due to rust. A small, pin-hole sized leak developed at a galvanized pipe joint. Even though small, that leak has caused thousands of dollars in cleanup and rebuild expenses.
At American Restoration, our advice is take some time and check the pipes in your home. If you detect any rust or corrosion issues in your home, address them with a plumber and you may prevent an incident that causes water damage or possibly mold. Save money and be safe. If you do experience a water line break or other emergency, call us and we'll help get your home back to normal.
