Is it Time for Whole-House Repiping?

rusty-pipesTypically, a plumbing issue results in a visit from your local plumber, who can detect and seal any leaks or clear any blockages that may exist. At some point, however, repairing leak after leak is not worth it anymore. When your plumbing system reaches a certain age, repairing or replacing just one section of piping isn’t going to cut it. Instead, you’ll need whole-house repiping.

When you need whole-house repiping or plumbing in Riverview, FL, contact Bayonet Plumbing, Cooling, and Heating. Repiping the entire house might seem a bit daunting, but it is a job that should only be done when absolutely necessary. If you’re unsure about whether you need repiping, consult with a professional plumber. In the meantime, we have provided a guide to whole-house repiping below.

You might need repiping if…

Your pipes are old

Up until the 1960s, plumbers used galvanized steel for pipe installation. Though long-lasting, these pipes have a lifespan of about 40-50 years. If your plumbing system still consists of this piping, it is definitely overdue due for replacement. Today, plumbers use copper or plastic piping, which is longer lasting and does not experience the same issues that older, steal pipes do, like rust and corrosion.

Like any system in your home, eventually, your pipes will have to be replaced. A professional plumber can determine if whole-house repiping is the best choice for your home.

You experience frequent leaks

Sure, a few leaks here or there just might require repair or replacing one section of the piping. However, if your plumbing system seems as though it has become “prone” to leaks, you might consider whole-house repiping. Numerous leaks indicate that your plumbing system is failing. Repairing leak after leak can become quite expensive, so rather than spend your money on repairs, invest in repiping.

Your water is discolored

There are many things that can cause your water to be discolored, and faulty pipes might be one of them. If the pipes that deliver water to your home have become corroded, they could allow contaminants into the water supply, causing discoloration. Although not all contaminants pose an immediate threat to your health, you will want to be sure that the water you consume is high-quality. Speak to a professional to figure out the source of your discolored water.

How does whole-house repiping work?

Typically, whole-house repiping can be completed in just a few days. We understand that it is a huge undertaking, but when you work with a trustworthy plumbing contractor, your budget will always be kept in mind, and the work will be done without sacrificing quality for speed or cost. Once the work is completed, you should see huge improvements in your system, like fewer clogs, fewer leaks, and lower water bills.
