In Singapore, there's **no mandatory requirement** to change the water pipes in a 20-year-old resale condo unit **solely based on age**. However, several factors influence whether it's advisable to replace them in your situation:

**Considerations for Replacing Pipes:**

* **Material of Existing Pipes:**
* **Metal Pipes:** If the existing pipes are **galvanized metal**, they are **more prone to corrosion** over time. Replacing them with **PEX (cross-linked polyethylene)** or **copper pipes** can be a wise long-term investment to avoid leaks and potential water damage.
* **Plastic Pipes:** If the existing pipes are already **PEX or another approved plastic material**, they might have a **longer lifespan** depending on the quality.

* **Condition of Existing Pipes:**
* **Visible Signs of Wear:** Look for any **leaks, rust, or bulging** in exposed sections of the pipes. These are signs of potential problems and warrant further inspection or replacement.
* **Water Pressure Issues:** If you experience **low water pressure** throughout the unit, it could indicate **clogged or narrowed pipes** due to corrosion or mineral buildup. Replacement could improve water flow.

* **Future Plans:**
* **Major Renovation:** Even if not planning major renovations now, consider if you might **undergo significant remodeling** in the future. Replacing pipes during a bigger renovation is often easier and more cost-effective than doing it as a separate project.

**Since you don't plan major renovations, here's a balanced approach:**

1. **Inspection:** Get a **licensed plumber** to inspect the exposed sections of the existing pipes. They can assess the material, **look for signs of deterioration**, and advise on the necessity of replacement.
2. **Water Pressure Test:** The plumber can also perform a **water pressure test** to check for any blockages affecting water flow.
3. **Consider Potential Risks:** Weigh the **potential cost of future leaks or repairs** due to aging pipes against the **immediate cost of replacement**.

**In conclusion, there's no one-size-fits-all answer.** A qualified plumber's inspection and an assessment of your future plans will help you decide if replacing the pipes in your specific case is a wise precaution or unnecessary at this stage.

It is not necessary to change, but for peace of mind, it is best to engage a trustworthy contractor to check on the existing conditions before making a decision.

I have been in the real estate business since 2009, with more than 14 years of experience serving the Singapore real estate market.

I am very active in the residential segment of Singapore real estate market, having transacted hundreds of deals from HDBs to private condominiums and landed properties in Singapore, and have handled many unique cases in sales and purchases as well as rental deals.

Over the years, I have also established a network reaching out to more than 9,400 expatriates, bringing my market presence to both in and outside of Singapore. This has created an additional exposure when I manage my client's portfolios, on top of the conventional on and offline platforms, where other estate agents are relying on. This has allowed me to consistently convert leads into results.

With an evolving market, where change is the only constant, I have also been investing in upgrading of my knowledge and skills sets to improve myself and meet the demands of current and future market.
