How to Avoid Corroded Pipes this Black Friday

Thanksgiving and Black Friday are a fun and busy couple of days. There’s always lots of excitement and lots to do. After getting through all the tasks of Thanksgiving, it can be particularly fun to relax and enjoy some of the Black Friday deals. However, while you’re busy with the holidays, your plumbing systems often go unattended.

Unfortunately, they can also be strained amidst the cooking and entertaining of the holiday season. This can be a bad combination that leaves you with dirty or corroded pipes. While Black Friday is great, black pipes are not. Take some extra steps this holiday season to help protect your pipes.

Recognizing and Addressing Copper Corrosion

cooper corrosionIf you have copper pipes that are turning black, that is a sign of corrosion and the presence of impurities in your plumbing system.

A black tint to copper pipes could indicate high sulfur levels or sewer gas in your system. It could also mean that your pipes are coming into contact with galvanized steel or that a low-quality pipe was installed with high levels of impurities.

Whatever the reason, it’s important to identify the issue to avoid further corrosion. The best way to do this is to have a professional inspect your entire plumbing system.

Do You Have a Corroded Water Heater

Unfortunately, your water heater also can corrode. Water heaters naturally build up minerals and sediment over time. It’s important to regularly flush out water heaters to clear this sediment out, but even with proper maintenance, sediment can build up and lead to corrosion.

If you have black specks coming out of the water heater, it could be an indication of corrosion. To avoid additional issues, unsafe water or water damage, it’s a good idea to have your water heater inspected as soon as possible to determine if it is corroded and how extensive the damage is.

Don’t Overlook Pipe Cleaning

To avoid this, it’s important to periodically clean and maintain your pipes. Once you notice evidence of corrosion, it’s important to have your pipes inspected immediately. Hopefully, a good cleaning is all that they need, but in some cases, repiping might be necessary to keep your water safe.

If you have any concerns about pipe corrosion or the quality of your home’s water, contact a plumbing professional for a thorough inspection.
