Signs You Need to Call a Re-pipe Contractor
While smaller leaks and isolated incidents are more affordable to fix with regular repairs, more serious problems could make whole-house re-piping the more cost-effective option. Consider replacing your pipes if you’re experiencing:
- Continuous leaks
- The need for frequent repair
- Unusual water taste or color
- Limescale corrosion
- Cold weather and freezing damage
- Reduced water pressure
- Other symptoms of aging
These issues are often warning signs of significant pipe damage, corrosion, or mineral accumulation. Give us a call. We’re happy to complete a full inspection to give you the information you need to make an informed decision.
Replace Your Galvanized Steel or Polybutylene Pipes
If you live in an older home, outdated materials may be putting your health or property at risk. For example, galvanized steel pipes become increasingly likely to fail as they age. These pipes also often suffer from decreased water pressure because they clog easily. Galvanized steel rusts and corrodes more quickly than other metals, too.
Polybutylene is another material that was previously popular but is prone to early failure. Pipes made from this type of plastic are susceptible to decomposition and disintegration. This excess wear eventually leads them susceptible to cracks.
If you experience an emergency due to outdated piping, call our plumbers for 24/7 plumbing repairs anywhere in Carmel.
Choosing Your New Pipe Material
When you chose us for whole-house re-piping services, we usually replace your plumbing with copper or PEX piping. Copper pipes are lightweight and can be used for hot or cold freshwater lines, as well as waste lines.
These pipes are durable and resist corrosion and cold weather damage. The copper is also recyclable and doesn't require hazardous chemicals for installation, making it suitable for almost any situation.
PEX pipes are recyclable and more environmentally friendly than pipes that use other plastics. This option is more affordable, as well. Its flexibility makes it easy to install and requires fewer fittings to effectively stop pipe-joint leaks.
