|Chances are, if you live in an older home, you're probably ready for a repipe. Older galvanized water lines deteriorate over time.
Deposits and buildup also decrease water flow and cause damage to water heaters and fixtures. In addition, older waste and water lines are generally undersized for today's plumbing demands.
If your home's piping is causing you problems, we recommend having your old pipes replaced with copper piping. Many homes use iron piping, which wears out due to rusting. Not only does this cause leaks that can damage your home, but health problems when rust appears in your drinking water.
A repipe may be necessary:
• If you have multiple leaks throughout our home with more leaks developing.
• If your sinks and drains clog easily and cleaning them is only a temporary fix.
• If your water has an unusual taste or color.
A complete residential re-piping can save you money in the long run by eliminating repeat trips from a plumber for fixing leaks or unclogging drains, which seem to develop no matter what you do.
