Common Plumbing Issues in Old Houses

When you are purchasing a dated property or already living in one, you need to know how to check the plumbing in an old house. Plumbing fixtures, water supply lines, drain lines, and sewer lines can develop problems simply due to their age.

In addition, the materials used 30+ years ago often no longer satisfy current building codes and health and safety codes. For example, many homes built from the 1920s through the mid-1980s could have used lead plumbing.

Then, from the 1960s through the late 1980s, galvanized steel pipes were also commonly used for residential plumbing. If your home was built between 1970 and the early 1990s, it could also have polybutylene plumbing which quickly deteriorates.

Unfortunately, plumbing issues in old houses with these types of pipes are very common. To find out what types of plumbing problems you could experience when you own an older home, we encourage you to review the following infographic.

Of course, the best solution to resolve and prevent plumbing issues is to update the plumbing in old houses in New Braunfels, Temple, San Antonio, and the Austin metro area with whole home repiping services, trenchless sewer repairs, and drain cleaning services from Christianson Air Conditioning & Plumbing.
