While a plumbing system is built to last a long time, it will not last forever. After years of continuous use, pipes may eventually need to be replaced entirely through a process called repiping.
What is Repiping?
In residential or commercial repiping, we switch out existing pipes for new pipes. We can run lines through an attic and down or dig around a structure’s exterior.
Both methods allow us to install new piping without causing significant damage to the property. There is minimal interruption, and the repiping can often be completed within one day.
Deteriorated pipes can result in increased water bills and property damage. And the longer you let it go, the worse the problems may become.
When Would Repiping be Necessary?
There comes a time when pipes will deteriorate to a point where they need to be replaced. Here are some of the signs that indicate it's time for new ones:
- Low water pressure
- Dark flakes in water
- Leaky pipes
- Strange tasting water
- Rusty colored water
- More than one pinhole leak within a given year
- Inconsistent water temperatures
- Water takes a long time to heat up
If you notice signs of deterioration, contact us so we can evaluate the condition of the pipes. We’ll determine whether it's time to consider repiping or whether repairs would suffice.
