NYC Apartment Plumbing Problems

For many living in NYC is a dream. However, when you are placed in a tiny apartment with plumbing issues your NYC dream can easily turn into a NYC nightmare. Pipes create the biggest plumbing problems since the city is old, which means the buildings are old, therefore old pipes. For example, during WWII cheaper brass was used in construction to conserve metal. If you end up having a blockage and the plumber is not careful, when he/she performs a snaking service they can easily poke a hole through the pipe. During the 60’s is when construction companies began building utilizing copper pipes, and are currently still being used. However, the downside to that is overtime metal begins to deteriorate. This causes weakened pipes, rust/corrosion and rough edges which will end up catching things. Overtime, this can be very problematic.

All in all, it is best to make sure you check the plumbing anytime you move in somewhere new. And in the event a plumbing problem arises, be sure to contact a licensed and experienced company.
