A small repair here and there may not make you think that your home as a major plumbing issue, but if your constantly having to make repairs, you should start to consider a whole home repipe. Repiping is the replacement of all of you home’s plumbing pipes. Even the best pipes will break down eventually, and not conducting regular maintenance only hastens that process. Look for these signs to see if your should start considering repipe services for your home:
- Discolored water coming from faucets or water using appliances
- Frequent pipe leaks
- Low water pressure throughout your home
- Signs of corrosion on exposed pipes
There are many factors to take into consideration when looking at the health of your plumbing system, and the age of your home is a major concern. If your home was built somewhere between the 1970s and 1990 your home’s pipes may have pipes made of Polybutylene, which are especially prone to breakdown. If your home’s plumbing is old and out of date, you’ll want to seriously consider getting the system replaced to avoid small breakdowns over time.
If you believe your home is in need of repipe solutions, T. Webber is here to help. There are many options to consider, including:
- Total Replacement: If your system is in rough shape, we may offer a total replacement as an option. This will ensure that your system not only returns to normal function, but also runs more efficiently with fewer breakdowns. This option is also well suited for remodeling as well.
- Exposed Replacement: If your budget is tight, only replacing exposed pipes may be viable option. This option won’t brush off the need for a total replacement down the line, but removing exposed and easy to access pipes will ensure that parts of your system are in strong working order. We’ll also inspect your other pipes with a camera to ensure that they are in a functional condition.
