Repiping is not something that a homeowner wants to have done. However, with innovative supplies and materials, the process is less costly than in the past. Plus, today’s replacement pipe options can last for decades, ensuring that your investment will be well spent. Is it time to have your home repiped? Find out when to contact a plumber for this service.
What Is Repiping?
Repiping is a service that replaces the pipes to a single fixture or your whole home. In the past, this process once required cutting out whole walls to install stiff copper pipes. However, with flexible PEX pipe that lasts for up to 25 years, a plumber does not need to cause as many changes to your walls or ceilings to install the pipe.
Signs Your Home Needs Repiping
Across the country, leaky pipes can waste up to a trillion gallons of water annually. As pipes age, they may develop pinhole leaks that don’t cause major damage to the surrounding areas immediately but can lead to water spots or mold growth over time. The more leaks that your plumbing system has, the more likely that you will need to consider replacing all the supply lines in your home. Repiping can provide this service and restore your plumbing’s supply lines to a new, leak-free condition.
You should also consider replacing the pipes in your home if you have an older home that has galvanized steel pipes or a mixture of materials, you have a greater chance of leaks due to corrosion of the pipes. Additionally, some very old homes may have lead pipes that must be replaced to preserve your health.
