Saltwater corrosion in your home's plumbing may lead to blockages, leaks, and exposure to high levels of heavy metals, posing risks.

Here, we’ve shared the possible effects of salt water corrosion in your plumbing system.

Here are some of the effects of salt water corrosion in your home’s plumbing system.

BITTER OR METALLIC-TASTING WATER

If your metal pipes start to corrode due to exposure to salt water, some of the metals will leach into your water, giving your water a bitter or metallic taste.

REDUCED WATER FLOW AND CLOGGED PIPES

Corrosion causes particles of rust and metals to build up in piping, narrowing their diameter and reducing water flow.

INCREASED LIKELIHOOD OF LEAKS

The clogging of pipes caused by saltwater corrosion could result in a buildup of pressure, eventually leading to a burst.

Saltwater corrosion could also increase the likelihood of pinhole leaks if the water is given enough time to wear through the metal.
