Types of Plumbing Pipes

As with many things in your home, your piping will not last you forever. Your pipes may last you a long time, but after years of use, it is likely that they will need to be replaced before they begin to leak. Knowing what types you have in your home can give you a better idea about whether these pipes should be replaced right away in the future.

How long will the pipes in my home last?

The types of pipes in the home may be found in the home inspection report from when the home was built or purchased. If you cannot find this document, then you can have a plumber of A-1 Sewer & Septic Service, Inc. come to do an inspection of your plumbing system.

When a plumber lets you know what kinds of pipes you have, you can determine their longevity:

  • Brass: 40 to 70 years
  • Copper: 50 years
  • Galvanized steel: 20-50 years
  • Cast iron: 75-100 years
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC): Indefinitely

While these types of pipes can generally last in this range, pipes that are well taken care of can last longer, while poorly maintained pipes may need to be replaced significantly sooner. Be sure to take care of your pipes to help extend the longevity of your plumbing and prevent expensive repairs down the line.

If you need to replace a section of galvanized steel piping, you can talk with a plumber about installing PVC piping to help increase the longevity of the pipes. Have other questions? Consulting with your trusted Kansas City plumber is the best course of action!
