Repiping and Pipe Replacement
Old and corroded pipes lead to problems like decreased water pressure and higher utility bills. Many people wary of the cost of repiping and pipe replacement decide to tough it out with their old pipes. This is a bad option as issues such as corroded, rusted, damaged, or leaking pipes may allow harmful chemicals into your water or lead to major problems like flooding.
Repiping is not a project to be taken lightly; professionals can analyze your plumbing system and determine whether a complete overhaul (repiping) is necessary or only certain key pipes need replacement. Unfortunately, many issues can build up in galvanized pipes and cause serious problems. The older your home is, the more likely your pipes are made with outdated material that needs updating. The professionals at Aqua Plumbing will update your pipes with the very best modern materials. We’ve created this post to educate you on repiping and pipe replacement:
What is Repiping?
Repiping is when all the supply pipes in a home or business are replaced. This long-term solution renovates your entire plumbing system and leaves you with a modern system likely to last a very long time. When repiping is performed, you can expect better water flow, better water quality, lower utility costs, and less maintenance.
When you’re remodeling your home, it is a great time to consider repiping. Repiping before painting or finishing the walls saves you from having to repair or repaint the walls.
Repiping vs. Pipe Replacement
One way to get a gauge of the state of your pipes is by doing a physical examination. Check for corrosion, rust and stains on exposed pipe. Mold growth, water discoloration, leaks and odd tasting water are other signs your pipes may need to be replaced.
The best way to know whether you need a complete overhaul or just some pipes replaced is by contacting a professional. Again, the older your home is the more likely you will need a complete overhaul. If low water pressure or a leak is localized to one area, you may be able to get away with just pipe replacement.
