Understanding the Lifespan of Residential Piping

The average lifespan of a home's piping is between 20 and 30 years. This lifespan is affected by a number of factors, including the quality of the materials used to build the piping, the frequency of use, and the overall condition of the home.

The average lifespans of different types of piping are:

  • Copper piping: 50 to 75 years
  • PVC piping: 40 to 50 years
  • Steel piping: 40 to 50 years
  • Cast iron piping: 100 to 150 years

Identifying When to Replace Your Home's Piping

If your home's piping is more than 20 to 30 years old, it is important to keep an eye out for signs that your system is failing or in need of replacement. 

There are a number of signs that your piping is in trouble, including:

  • Frequent clogs
  • Slow water flow
  • Frequent leaks and drips
  • Uneven water pressure
  • High water bills

If you notice any of these signs, it is important to call a licensed plumber to investigate the problem and help you decide whether to repair or replace your system. Our technicians are licensed and experienced, and we will take the time to understand your home's needs and provide you with an honest assessment of your piping system.
