Common Pipe Problems
Over time, plumbing pipes gradually corrode, rust, and decay with daily use. Unless the affected pipes are replaced, homeowners will eventually have to deal with leaking pipes and potentially a flood of water or raw sewage that damages your Costa Mesa home from the inside out. Nobody wants that!
Our experienced plumbing team in Orange County can help you better understand your plumbing system with a simple inspection. To plan ahead for a replacement, you must understand your plumbing system’s current condition and type of piping. That way, you can anticipate any potential costs of pipe repair or replacement.
Today’s most commonly used pipes in residential plumbing are:
- Plastic PVC pipes are virtually indestructible and the most commonly used pipe for drain lines.
- PEX piping is the newest pipe for residential use and is popular because it is flexible and easy to install. PEX is also much less expensive than copper plumbing pipes and usually comes with a 25-year warranty.
- Copper is more expensive than plastic piping but has excellent longevity. Because copper pipes resist corrosion, they are commonly used pipes in water supply lines.
Depending on the age of your home, you may encounter galvanized steel or cast iron systems that could require expensive repairs or need replacing. Call today at 949.229.7550 to inspect your plumbing pipes.

The type of plumbing in your house determines how long you should expect it to last. Well-maintained pipes will likely last longer. Conversely, plumbing that has been neglected or is present in areas with hard water (meaning it has a high mineral content) may fail sooner.
Reviewing the home inspection report you received when you bought your home is a quick and simple way to check out what kind of pipes your house currently uses. Homeowners should always inspect the exposed pipes for signs of trouble to help prevent plumbing emergencies from springing up. Check the pipes for stains, flaking, bumps, or any irregularities that indicate corrosion or damage.
Parzival Plumbing can send an experienced Costa Mesa plumber to do a simple free inspection of your plumbing system to help you identify what type of pipes you have and their current condition.
Do I Need to Replace My Pipes?
Any leaks—even easily repairable small ones—could be a warning sign that the time for pipe replacement is fast approaching. A leak in one area may be a strong indication of one in another area, especially if all your pipes are the original tubing and are all made of the same material.
Any sign of rusty brown or yellow water coming out of pipes, especially after a vacation where the water has been stagnant, typically indicates decay inside the pipes.
Our professional plumbers have underground cameras and specialized equipment to inspect pipes and sewer laterals. In any case, replacing pipes before disaster strikes is probably your best bet.
You should immediately remove and replace any lead or polybutylene pipes present in your home, regardless of their condition. Lead pipes can leach lead into drinking and cooking water, posing a serious health hazard. Polybutylene pipes are extremely prone to breakage, so replacing them is always recommended.
Plumbing re-pipes involve extensive repairs that require an experienced, professional plumber. The process involves replacing old sections of damaged or aged pipes with new copper, plastic, or PEX tube piping to revitalize the life of your plumbing system.
Since the water at your home needs to be shut off during the pipe replacement process, Parzival Plumbing offers extended hours to ensure the plumbing work will minimize any impact on your daily routine. We also take pride in protecting the environment and are certified green plumbers.
