Corrosion of water pipes over time is quite common if you have a metal piping system.

This makes the water unsafe for drinking or cleaning purposes. As the water collects too many minerals while passing through corroded metal pipes, it loses quality and starts to taste odd. You’ll find that:

  • Oxidation of the metal leads to gradual corrosion.
  • Rusting can lead to frequent water leaks.
  • This jeopardises your entire residential plumbing systems.
  • Constant corrosion of water pipes can also contaminate the water.

What To Do About A Corroded Pipe?

You might also notice unusual discolouration of water if you have old and corroded water pipes.

Under these circumstances, it’s best to hire professional plumbers who can repair the corroded water pipe or replace it entirely through pipe replacement or pipe relining.

If the corrosion has caused your pipe to leak or burst, you will need the assistance of our emergency plumbing team.

Contact our plumbing professionals at Service First Plumbing. With our reliable and top-notch plumbing services, we will repair your broken pipes as soon as possible.

How We Fix Your Corroded Pipe

As a corroded water pipe contaminates your central water system, it is a recipe for serious health hazards and results in water-borne diseases.

You also face a high risk of burst pipes and flooding if the corroded pipe isn’t taken care of immediately.

Our Sydney plumbers will assess the condition of the water pipe through cameras to determine whether to repair or replace it. If the corrosion is still in the early stages, the plumbers might choose to repair the pipe using our advanced pipe relining techniques.

However, if you want a more permanent fix, they can replace the entire corroded metal piping system with durable PVC or new copper pipes. Our plumbers will find the best solution no matter how severe the corrosion is.

Corroded Pipe FAQs

Want to know more about rusted and corroded plumbing pipes? We have answered our most frequently asked questions from our customers:

It depends on how corroded the pipes are. If the corrosion is only surface-level, a good scrubbing with a cleaning agent may be all that’s needed to remove the build-up and restore flow.

However, if the corrosion has eaten away at the metal pipe, then it will need to be replaced. Pipes don’t last forever - eventually, they’ll corrode and degrade to a point where they need to be replaced. So if you’re seeing signs of corrosion (rusty water, decreased water pressure, etc.), it’s best to have them inspected by a professional to see if they need to be replaced.

Copper pipes corrode when they come into contact with water that contains minerals, like sulphur and oxygen. These minerals form a weak acid that slowly eats away at the copper, causing it to rust and leak.

To help prevent corrosion, homeowners can install a water filter to remove the minerals from their water and/or use galvanized steel pipes instead of copper.

If you suspect that your copper pipes may be corroded, there are a few simple ways to check. One way is to take a piece of paper and put it over the pipe. If the paper sticks, then the pipe is corroded and needs to be replaced.

Another way to check for corrosion is to use a vinegar and water solution. Pour the vinegar into a bowl and add some water. Then dip a piece of white cloth into the vinegar solution and hold it up to the copper pipe. If the cloth turns green, then the pipe is corroded and needs to be replaced.
