Pipe Repair & Replacement in Charlotte and the Surrounding Areas

Are you having repeated issues with the pipes in your home? The typical life span for pipes is measured in decades (rather than years) so even if they’re approaching the 20-year mark, you may still be able to repair rather than replace. Unfortunately, even the best pipes eventually do need to be replaced, so we’ve put together a guide to help you determine if yours require attention. If you’re concerned about the pipes in your home, call the experts at Three Way Plumbing at 704-795-9349 to set up your pipe inspection.

Signs You Need Your Pipes Repaired or Replaced


A leaking faucet can waste up to 100 gallons of water every day, and they’re often a sign of a larger problem with your plumbing.

Low water pressure

A drop in water pressure is another sign of a larger plumbing issue within your home.

Malfunctioning appliances

Keep an eye on appliances that use a lot of water, like your dishwasher or washing machine. Issues with those appliances are often a clue that you have an underlying plumbing concern.


Cracks are one plumbing issue that’s usually easy to spot. Even if the cracked pipe is hidden behind a wall, eventually the water will become visible through the wall or on the floor. Never ignore a wet spot in your home, as it might be a sign of a serious problem. If for some reason you think you have a leak, but you can’t locate the source, we offer a leak detection service to locate and fix those leaks.


Does it seem like your pipes are constantly becoming clogged? Before you blame your family, consider the possibility that your pipes might be corroding. This is even more likely if you have galvanized steel pipes. Corroded pipes will eventually need to be replaced before they completely break.

Rust-colored water

If your water is coming out of your faucets cloudy or discolored, it could be a temporary problem with your water supply, or it could be another sign that you have corrosion in your pipes. If it doesn’t clear up in a day or two, avoid drinking or bathing in the water and call a plumber.

Hazardous materials

Prolonged exposure to lead can cause learning disabilities and reduced growth in children as well as kidney complications and reproductive issues in adults. Find out if your plumbing system contains it, and if it does, you should strongly consider replacing your affected pipes and fittings.


Most PVC pipes will last forever, but here are the anticipated life spans of other pipe materials:
  • Galvanized steel: 20-50 years
  • Brass: 40-45 years
  • Copper: 50+ years
  • Cast iron: 75-100 years
If you’re not sure what kind of pipes are present in your home, ask your plumber next time they visit to determine if yours are due to be replaced. If you’ve noticed any of these warning signs in your home or have any questions, call 704-795-9349 today.
