Don't just allow your pipes to keep on working mysteriously without any maintenance or upkeep. Do you even know what your pipes are made of?
Many people buy older homes not realizing that the old copper, iron or other type of piping material is a ticking time bomb. This happened to me when I bought my first home. Some of the piping near the back yard started leaking, and I had an expensive plumbing repair on my hands.
Know what type of pipes you have and whether or not they are in need of being replaced before you have a disaster on your hands.
