Signs You Need Repiping Services
Low Water Pressure
If you’ve noticed a difference in your water pressure, it may be time to update your system. Old or worn-out pipes can lead to a decrease in your home’s water pressure. Upgrading to new piping can help restore the pressure you need for comfortable showers and other plumbing fixtures.
Rusty or Discolored Water
Discolored water from your tap or shower indicates that your plumbing system needs attention. Rust and corrosion in the pipes can cause the water to become discolored, showing it’s time for new piping.
If you constantly deal with unexpected leaks, it’s time to upgrade your pipes. Leaks can cause an increase in water bills and lead to severe property damage if left untreated. If you notice leaks in the same area of your home repeatedly, it’s a sign that you need repiping services.
If you’ve noticed unfamiliar noises coming from your pipes—like whistling or banging—it could be a sign that they’re too old or in poor condition. Upgrading to new piping can eliminate these strange sounds and ensure everything runs smoothly.
Your pipes’ age indicates that they may need to be replaced. While most plumbing systems last between 20 and 50 years, older piping can become more prone to corrosion and other structural damage much sooner.
Bad Taste or Smell
If the water from your plumbing fixtures tastes or smells bad, it could be a sign that you should repipe. Rust formation, sediment buildup, and other issues can cause changes in the taste and odor of your water. Upgrading to new pipes can help resolve these problems and ensure safe, clean drinking water.
Our Repiping Process
Repiping a house involves replacing old or corroded pipes with new ones. It’s necessary when the plumbing system is outdated, damaged, or leaking. Repiping can bring several advantages—like better water pressure, improved water quality, and reduced utility bills.
During the repiping process, our technician will remove the existing pipes and replace them with more modern pipes made of materials like copper, PEX (polyethylene cross-linked), CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride), or PVC.
Depending on the type of pipe that needs to be installed, some walls may need to be opened up for access. This will all be discussed before we begin the job. At Sansone Plumbing Services, we provide quick and reliable installation services so you can instantly enjoy the benefits of updated plumbing.
Let’s take a closer look at the three types of piping used.
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) works for residential and commercial piping due to its affordability and lightweight design. This plastic material is easy to install and won’t suffer from rusting or corrosion, plus it offers insulation benefits that metal piping cannot. PVC may not be ideal for drinking water due to UV ray exposure, but it’s an excellent material for all other indoor and outdoor piping applications.
CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) is a great choice for those looking for piping that can withstand higher temperatures. It goes through an extra chlorination process, making it optimal for use in drinking water systems since there is much less exposure to UV rays than PVC piping. It’s also more expensive than its counterpart, which may deter some homeowners from choosing this material. However, it’s ideal for indoor applications where freezing temperatures aren’t an issue.
PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) is quickly becoming a popular option for residential and commercial piping applications due to its durability and affordability. It can handle various temperatures—from freezing to boiling—which makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor use. While PEX is resistant to chemicals and corrosion, it’s not recyclable, which doesn’t make it the most eco-friendly choice. But if you’re looking for quality piping material that won’t break the bank, PEX is your go-to option.
Benefits of Repiping
Repiping is an underestimated solution for various plumbing problems. It offers long-term savings that will prevent future repairs and replacements and provide you with a reliable source of clean water.
Increased Water Pressure
The pressure of the water entering your home will increase due to the new pipes being installed. It allows you to enjoy a more pleasant shower and experience better performance when running appliances connected to the plumbing system.
Improved Water Quality
Since the pipes are new, they won’t have any corrosion or rust buildup. This means the water quality will improve significantly, and you can be sure it’s safe to drink.
Lower Risk of Leaks and Water Damage
Older pipes can deteriorate over time, leading to leaks and water damage that can cause costly repairs. New pipes allow you to rest easy knowing that these problems won’t arise.
Increased Property Value
A repiping job can significantly increase the value of your home. Not only will it look more aesthetically pleasing, but potential buyers will also be impressed by the fact that all the old pipes are gone and replaced with modern materials.
Investing in a repiping job now can save you money in the long run. You’ll avoid costly repairs required by aging pipes, enjoy better performance from your plumbing system, and save on utilities thanks to increased water flow.
