Why Repipe During a Remodel?
If you are considering improvements to your home, it is the perfect time to consider a whole-home repipe. Repiping your home can increase its value, improve its functionality, reduce water costs and limit the chance of plumbing problems down the road. Here are some signs it’s time to consider repiping your home:
Your Home Is More Than 40 Years Old
If your home was built before 1980, your pipes are likely copper and are connected with lead joints. And if your home was built before 1960, it likely has galvanized steel pipes, which have a lifespan of about 50 years.
Pipes aren’t meant to last forever. But when they are made of inferior materials such as low-grade copper, galvanized steel, Polybutylene and inexpensive plastic, it is just a matter of time before they fail.
Yellow or Rust-Colored Water
Discolored water is a sign minerals and rust are accumulating in your pipes. Not only does this affect water quality, it’s a sign your pipes need to be replaced.
Isolated leaks are a normal plumbing occurrence, but frequent and recurring leaks may be a sign your entire system needs to be replaced.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure and volume is an early sign of serious plumbing problems. Corrosion and mineral deposits build up over time, eventually restricting water flow and damaging pipes.
Changes In Water Temperature
When someone taking a shower gets scalded when a toilet is flushed, this is a sign of corrosion, restricted flow and leaky pipes.
Slab or Pinhole Leaks
Earthquakes and chemicals in water make homes more vulnerable to pipe leaks. If not repaired properly, these leaks can cause water damage, mildew, mold, constant repair bills and high water costs.
