Plumbing Red Flags in Older Homes
From rustic charm to classic features no longer included with today’s modern construction designs, there are several reasons to love an older home or choose to live in one. However, older homes often need more attention from a plumber in Lake Elsinore, CA from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter due to their age. We go over some of the plumbing-related red flags to look for if you have an older home.
Leaks, Clogs, and Drips
It’s not unusual to need plumbing repairs taken care of now and then with any type of home. But if you have an older home, repairs may become increasingly frequent. The more noticeable issues in older homes include leaks, clogs, and drips. Any of these issues can affect pipes, faucets, fixtures, or drains.
Unsafe Pipe Materials
Some older homes have pipe materials that present problems as they get older and break down. Galvanized pipes, for instance, were once commonly used in homes for water lines. However, the zinc coating in these pipes can erode over time and make the pipes brittle and susceptible to leaking.
Before you move into an older home, enlist plumbing services from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter. We will inspect the system and make the necessary fixes to ensure your home’s protection.
Pipe Bellies and Other Sewer Problems
Older sewer lines can sag as they age. Aging sewer lines can also develop cracks from soil shifting or invasive tree roots. If issues with aging sewer lines aren’t dealt with as soon as they are discovered, you may need emergency plumbing assistance because of related issues with drain backups and clogs.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
