In fact, recently I was doing just that – installing expensive new tiles in a bathroom in El Centro. Thinking about the future and concerned for the health of my clients, I spent a little time checking out the pipes in the house. The home was built in the “steel pipe” era of Cuenca – 1980’s-1990’s. Guess what? The pipes were horribly corroded, filled with debris and barely functioning. I know the homeowners would have preferred to just ignore it, but when I showed them what they are drinking and the likelihood that these pipes would burst unexpectedly, they agreed that it would be better to replace them.
This pipe problem is not found only in El Centro. Just before Covid struck, Franklin (my brother) had to replace all the pipes in a home on the western side of Cuenca for the same reason. There was little water pressure and in the morning, the water was not a pretty color. The homeowners there were drinking corrosive material that came out every morning. Clothes were no longer white, but brownish after washing. What really affected them and prompted them to take action was a giant leak in one of the bathroom pipes on the second floor.
Plumbing is not easy to replace in these cement walls and floors, and it will cost a little extra to do it. We know how to work around the old pipes that are stuck in concrete and set up a new water system with clean pipes in the most efficient, cost-effective way.
