how will I know it's time to repipe my home?
When is it time to call on a home repiping service? Number one, how old is your home? Cooper pipes have a lifespan of 50 to 70 years and possibly longer. Poor water quality can shorten that lifespan by 20 years. When you have a pipe leak in a newer home that's less than 20 years old, the leak can usually be contributed to poor craftsmanship. If a leak occurs in a home that's 30 years old or older, the pipes should be checked by your plumbing contractor.
Fixing a leak may only temporarily fix the real problem if your pipes are bad throughout your home. Even the smallest leak can cause serious damage if not caught quickly, costing a homeowner hundreds if not thousands of dollars in damage. Furthermore, when pipes are damaged, the property you live in could be a health risk to your family due to poor water quality or mold brought on by a small pipe leak.
Has The Thought of Repiping Your Home Ever Come to Mind?
Check with your home repiping service specialist to determine if your home requires repiping Homeowners are often faced with plumbing problems that have to do with bathroom fixtures and clogged toilets but many don’t realize that low water pressure, delayed hot water flow, and rust-colored water coming out of your pipes can all be signs of the need for home repiping services. Minerals from hard water can also build up causing water flow problems. Inconsistent water temperatures, dark flakes, and a strange taste may also be telltale signs of pipe degeneration. The two most common types of pipes used are Copper and PEX piping. Copper is the most popular pipe because of what it offers the homeowner:
- Resistance to corrosion & growth of bacteria
- Leak-proof joints
- Safe choice for drinking water
