What Is Repiping?
Repiping is the complete replacement of the existing plumbing system in your home. It involves removing old pipes and installing new ones that are more durable and efficient. Repiping is not always the solution when you encounter damage or leaks. In many cases, minor repairs or partial replacements may suffice.
However, there are specific scenarios where repiping may be the best solution:
- Your property’s pipes are over 50 years old and haven't been replaced.
- You experience frequent leaks despite regular repairs.
- Water pressure throughout the house is consistently low.
- You notice rust-colored or odd-tasting water, which might indicate rusting pipes.
- Your pipes are made of outdated or hazardous material, like lead or polybutylene.
Repiping Options to Consider
Repiping is a significant investment, and you want to ensure that you're making the right decision when it comes to the material used. There are multiple options to choose from, each with their own unique benefits and drawbacks. It's important to understand your choices so you can select the best solution for your home's specific needs:
- Copper: This material is durable, resistant to corrosion, and has a long lifespan. It's a traditional choice for many homeowners but comes with a higher cost.
- PEX (cross-linked polyethylene): PEX is flexible, easy to install, and less expensive than copper. It's also resistant to scale and chlorine, doesn't corrode, and can withstand high temperatures.
- PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride): These types of plastic pipes are often used for drain lines. They're lightweight, resistant to corrosion, and affordable but can't withstand high temperatures.
- Galvanized steel: Galvanized pipes are coated with zinc to prevent rust and corrosion. They're durable and long lasting, but they're also heavier and more difficult to work with than other options.
