Renew Water Line

Renew Water Line

Many houses built in Melbourne in the late 60’s early 70’s have galvanized water pipes. Unfortunately, galvanized pipes do experience a build-up of debris and deposits that can result in complete blockages within the waterline. Some signs to look for that may indicate your waterline needs renewing include; a brownish tinge to the water colour, poor pressure or water not flowing freely from all the taps within your home.

Nowadays, there is a variety of piping that is used in place of galvanized pipe which do have the added advantage of being easy to repair and less likely to decay overtime.
