When should you repipe vs repair your pipes?
For the most part, pipes can usually be salvaged and repaired when small isolated problems arise. For example, a crack or a leak in one pipe can be easily repaired. Water pressure as it flows through one particular section of piping can be restored with a quick repair. However, if there are leaks in several places throughout the piping system, it is time to repipe the home. If you are unsure whether to repair or repipe, we can take a look at your system and help you make an educated decision.
What are signs you need to repipe?
Repiping becomes necessary when signs of degeneration are present. This includes:
● Decreased water pressure throughout the home.
● Change in water color that often signals rust.
● Dark flakes in the water.
● Pipes that are leaking in several places.
All of these are due to corroded pipes that need to be replaced. Repiping the entire home can seem like a pain, but it saves you the time and money that would otherwise be spent constantly repairing these old and failing pipes.
What is the difference between copper and PEX piping?
When repiping a home, the most common types of pipe that we use are copper and PEX piping. Copper is extremely durable; most manufacturers offer a warranty of 50 years. They are also weather-resistant and corrosion-resistant, so they can be used outdoors as well as indoors. This is beneficial to any homeowners who prefer consistency throughout their piping systems.
Though copper piping is fairly expensive, it can be recycled upon replacement for a small sum of cash. Plus, they will not need to be replaced for several decades, so money will be saved on the need for repairs.
PEX piping is similar in that it is very durable and lasts a lifetime. However, PEX piping is made of a flexible colored plastic. They also run very quietly as compared to metal pipes but still deliver high-pressure water.
Additionally, PEX pipes are one of the most inexpensive options available to homeowners today. if replacements are ever necessary, the job is done easily and cost-effectively.
