Signs It’s Time to Think About Repiping
It can be difficult to know when the cost of ongoing plumbing repairs outweighs the value of completely repiping your home. Only an expert plumber can advise you on the best solution available, but here are some signs it may be time to think about repiping:
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.
Partial or Whole-Home Repiping?
When your home’s pipes begin to fail and leak, you can expect more leaks in the coming months and years. Finding and repairing each leak can be costly in both repair and damage caused to your home. A whole-home repipe is the most efficient and effective solution. Our expert plumbers will make recommendations based on their inspection your system and evaluation of your needs.
PEX and Copper Pipes
Advances in plumbing technology mean you have two options when it comes to repiping your home. Our experts will review both options with you, but here’s an overview of what you’ll choose from:
PEX, or cross-linked polyethelene, is a durable, versatile, high-density plastic which is quickly becoming America’s favorite repipe material. PEX repipes require fewer fittings and less labor to install than rigid metal pipes. Because we use the highest quality PEX on the market, our PEX pipes will not corrode, scale, freeze or develop pinhole leaks. Our PEX pipes come with a lifetime guarantee!
For decades copper has been the preferred material for plumbing systems, but quality can vary dramatically. We only use the highest quality American-made copper pipes, which are manufactured to a precise, uniform standard. Our copper pipes come with a 25-year warranty.
