Problems

Galvanized Steel Piping Challenges

Galvanized steel, once a standard plumbing material, now often contributes to plumbing headaches, especially in older Atlanta homes:

Rust and Corrosion

Galvanized steel pipes corrode internally over time, restricting water flow and compromising water quality.

Water Pressure Issues

The buildup of rust and sediment inside these pipes often results in low water pressure, affecting daily household activities.

Frequent Leaks

The corrosion process weakens the pipe walls, making them more prone to leaks, which can cause significant damage to your home.

Potential for Lead Contamination

Older galvanized pipes may have been connected with lead-based soldering material, raising serious health concerns.

Decreased Home Value

Galvanized piping can lower home resale value as buyers are cautious about associated problems it may bring.

Environmental Impact

The production and disposal of galvanized steel have a higher environmental footprint compared to more modern materials.

Solutions

PEX Piping Advantages

Opting for PEX piping when replacing old galvanized steel has several advantages, particularly for homeowners in Atlanta:

Resistance to Corrosion

Unlike galvanized steel, PEX does not corrode or degrade over time, maintaining water quality and system integrity.

Improved Water Pressure

PEX does not accumulate rust or sediment, which means it consistently maintains good water pressure throughout the home.

Longevity and Durability

PEX is designed to last with minimal maintenance requirements, reducing long-term costs and hassle for homeowners.

Health and Safety

PEX pipes, crafted from non-toxic materials, safeguard family health by preventing chemical leaching into water.

Eco-Friendly Choice

PEX is eco-friendly in production and disposal, being recyclable and supporting sustainable living practices.

Cost-Effective Installation

PEX’s flexibility and lightness enable faster, simpler installations with fewer connections, reducing installation expenses.
