  • How do you repair a rusted water pipe?

    Rust is bad news for pipes. It can eat away at the pipe itself leading to leaks that affect your home. There are a few ways to remove rust from pipes, however, we’d recommend leaving serious damage to a professional.

    You can remove rust from pipes using a chemical rust remover and a wire brush. First scrub away the excess rust, then apply the chemical remover to get rid of any remaining rust. Once you’ve removed all the rust, paint the pipe to prevent it from reappearing.
