When Is Repiping Necessary?
There are a number of different situations where you should schedule repiping from a professional. If you live in a house that was built pre–1970 which has never received repiping services, then the plumbing is probably made of an older material such as galvanized steel. Steel is a tough metal, but it will eventually succumb to corrosion over time, something that will not occur with newer piping materials such as copper and PEX and CPVC. As the old pipes start to deteriorate, you will notice problems from leaks, clogs, and fresh water discoloration. But even if you have not detected such issues yet, you should still invest in repiping to replace the outdated material and head off future headaches.
Whole–house repiping is only one kind of repiping service, however. You might need to have a smaller section of your home repiped, such as when you are planning remodeling or a room expansion. When you begin to experience routine plumbing issues like those listed above in a newer home, contact experienced plumbers to determine the extent of the repiping needed to remedy them. You will probably not require whole–house repiping; the plumbers will see what areas in the home need targeting so they can do the quickest job with the least amount of disruption to your home and daily routines.
