Leaks are the most obvious sign. Where one leak may appear it is likely there are more leaks. Joints can become rusted and valves can fail from corrosion. Hard water and lime deposits result in small leaks at first but progress to more serious problems.
Air in the lines can be a sign of pipe degradation that occurs after time. If spits and spurts are occurring in your shower or a facet, then it may be time to repipe your house.
