Rust and pipe corrosion at work Low Water Pressure: Low water pressure at a faucet, shower or washing machine is caused by the build-up of rust and corrosion on the inside of galvanized iron pipes. As these pipes age, the rust and corrosion continues to build restricting the flow of water more and more.

  • Rust Colored Water: Rusty or discolored water is caused by the rust from the inside of the pipes combining with the water flowing through the pipes. This usually indicates an advanced stage of corrosion in the pipes.
  • Leaky Pipes: Leaks most commonly are caused by corrosion (the eating into or wearing away gradually, as by rusting or chemical reaction) of the galvanized iron pipes.
  • Galvanized Iron Water Pipes: Iron water pipes coated with zinc to prevent rusting and corroding are called galvanized iron. As galvanized iron pipes age, the zinc coating gradually wears away, exposing the iron. The unprotected iron rusts rapidly in the presence of water, just as iron rusts when it is exposed to rain.
