You are finally sick of the pink/blue or green tile and you have decided it is time to remodel your Philadelphia bathroom. But wait, you might need to deal with more than just a bathroom makeover. How do you know?
Hint: When you turn on the shower or flush your toilet you can hear knocking pipes in the walls. Or when you turn on the faucets, they provide inconsistent water pressure.
