Whole House Repiping: The Run Down

If you’ve ever had any work done in your home on your plumbing system or even had a plumbing problem that prompted you to do your own personal research, you’ve probably heard the term “whole-house repiping.” Repiping is one of those terms that’s a little ominous. Even if you don’t know exactly what this service entails, you know that it’s a service that’s extensive and expensive.

Repiping doesn’t have to be either of these things when you choose our team. In fact, we’re having an offer right now that includes a free estimate for a whole house repiping. We’re going to make sure that we take a deep dive into your plumbing system, identify any weak points, and take the steps necessary to get your home back on track. Contact our team today to learn more about your options.

What Is Repiping?

So let’s start from the beginning—what is a whole house repiping?

Repiping is just what it sounds like—it’s the process of replacing the pipes through your entire home. Repiping isn’t the first solution that you’re going to jump for when you have a plumbing problem. This is the option that you’re going to choose when you have a major plumbing problem in your home that can’t be solved by smaller repair services.

You’re going to need a team of professionals to handle service like this. It’s a pretty serious service. Make sure that you contact our professionals when you want service you know you can rely on.

3 Signs That You Need One

One day, our world might be so intuitive and technologically advanced that your pipes will sound an alarm when they’re ready to be replaced. For now though, you need to know a few signs that your pipes are ready to be replaced. Watch out for these warning signs:

1.      Your Pipes are Old

This one might seem a little obvious, but you’d be surprised how a sign like this can slip through the cracks. If you live in an older home that has its original plumbing, you’re more than eligible for a repiping service. Plumbers still used galvanized steel for piping installation services up until the 1960s. This is a long-lasting material, but it can’t last forever. If you’ve never replaced your pipes, the time is now.

2.      You’ve Got Build Up

Is there always white scummy build up on your faucets and dishes? Do you have low water pressure in your home? These are two major signs that you have hard water in your home. Hard water is a problem because it allows minerals to build up in your home’s pipes over time. This causes a breakdown of your plumbing system, low water pressure, and even more personal problems like dry hair, skin, and brittle nails.

3.      Leaks, Leaks, and More Leaks

Do you feel like you’re always springing a leak in your home? Leaks are bound to happen at least a few times in the lifetime of every home, but they shouldn’t be a regular occurrence. If they are, it’s time for you to replace your home’s pipes. It’s easier (not to mention more cost-effective) to replace the plumbing system as a whole rather than patching up the problem indefinitely.
