Most homes constructed prior to 1970, were built using steel pipe for both hot and cold water. Steel pipes were often galvanized to protect the pipe from rust and corrosion. The galvanization wears off after a period of time,, and the steel pipe is exposed to the elements that cause rust and corrosion. Once the pipe begins to rust, it will eventually leak, and it will need to be replaced. If you are experiencing rusty water or low water pressure, call West Covina Copper Repiping, and a repiping specialist will evaluate the problem and offer a suitable solution.
