What are the Reasons for Repiping?
It can be difficult to know when to repipe. Because your pipes are not readily visible, many individuals are not aware of any problems until they notice a more obvious issue: a higher than normal water bill, unexpected puddles, a drop in water pressure, or foul smelling or discolored water. These are all strong signs that you either have a water leak, or your pipes are corroded. Either way, we will investigate the problem and make sure repiping is the right solution for you.
Should I Install PEX or Copper Piping?
As in any repair situation, there are different materials you can choose from to complete your repiping project. The two main kinds of pipes used for repiping are PEX and copper.
PEX is short for cross-linked polyethylene. PEX pipes are flexible, durable, and are more budget-friendly than copper piping. PEX pipes can withstand a range of temperatures, so you won't have to worry about your pipes freezing during the winter. They are also quiet (little clanking) and easy to install.
Copper pipes have a different set of qualities. The most obvious difference between copper and PEX piping is that copper pipes are much more rigid than their plastic counterparts. Once installed, copper pipes will last for decades. Their increased durability also means they can be used outdoors, while PEX pipes are limited to indoor plumbing. Copper pipes require a greater investment, but their reliability and high quality will pay off in the long run.
The takeaway: Both PEX and copper pipes can be relied on to carry clean, fast-flowing water. We will help you determine the ideal material best suited for your property and your budget.
What Happens During the Repiping Process?
Repiping is an intricate process. The first step is to locate the pipes that need to be replaced. It may also be necessary to determine if the entire piping system should be replaced.
Next, we will turn off the main water supply and drain the pipes as much as possible, as well as covering your flooring to prevent water damage. Next, we will create openings in the flooring and walls to access the pipes.
We will remove the old, damaged pipes by either unfastening them or sawing them off, depending on how rusty they have become. We will then place in the new piping, either in a similar or completely new configuration. Their placement depends on whether you have chosen PEX or copper material. After the new pipes are in place, we will close up any openings we have created.
Your new pipes are then ready to go!
