If your home’s water supply lines are old, worn and prone to leaks, a plumbing re-pipe may be your best option. This is especially true if you’ve been paying for leak detection, re-routes and repairs over a long period of time and would like to resolve the problems once and for all.
A plumbing re-pipe involves the abandonment of all or most of your water pipes and replacing them with new ones. Old pipes will be located and isolated or removed; new pipes will be put in to supply water to fixtures and appliances. The new supply lines will run inside walls, attics and in between floors, and can reach any shower, toilet, faucet or appliance in the house.
Plumbing re-pipes may seem like a big job, but they can actually be done in a relatively short amount of time, with minimal noise and mess. Most re-pipes take only two to five days, and leave no visible signs when the job is complete. Depending on the size and layout of your home, the cost of a whole-house re-pipe may be much lower than you think, especially if it’s covered by insurance.
Re-pipes can be done in standard copper tubing or a newer polyethylene material called PEX pipe—a heavy duty plastic with some considerable advantages over copper. A plumber experienced with re-pipes can help you decide which material best suits your home.
If you’re tired of dealing with continuous leaks and plumbing problems, you should think about having your home re-piped. It’s the end-all solution to slab leaks and never-ending repairs, and may also improve the pressure and flow of water throughout the house. Overall, it’s a great investment that will improve the quality of your home and give you peace of mind for years to come.
