When to Consider Repiping

bursted copper pipe with water leaking out, 3d illustrationYour plumbing system is the core of your home. Since you use this system almost daily at such a high frequency, you’ll probably need repiping to some extent during your home’s lifetime—this is especially true if your home is older.

Homeowners might experience all the symptoms of piping problems but not realize that this is the problem at hand. If you’re worried about the quality of your plumbing in Media, PA and you’re considering repiping, contact our team. Below, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you decide if you’d be a candidate for repiping.

Old Pipes

How old are the pipes in your home? Your home’s piping system is built to last, but your system can’t last forever. If you live in a home built before the year 1970 and you haven’t had any remodeling done, then it’s highly likely that you need repiping. The reason 1970 is the cut off because it’s more likely that this home contains out-of-date and ineffective metals like galvanized steel.

At this time, people considered galvanized pipes to be rust resistant. But, in actuality, this type of material isn’t flexible and it’s prone to breaking and corrosion when it goes up against too much force.

Leaks, Leaks, Leaks

If you constantly have a plumbing leak, it’s a wise idea to repipe your home instead of battling against constant leaks. This is still true even if your home isn’t older. Experiencing constant leaks in a newer home is still a problem. Recurrent leaks are indicative of a bigger issue with your plumbing system. A repiping will benefit your home in the long run.

Low Water Pressure

When you run water in your home is the force of the water frustrating? Does the water coming out of your sink merely trickle? You’re suffering from low water pressure and you might benefit from a whole-house repiping. Low water pressure has a myriad of causes. It’s typically something that develops over time so by the time you notice it, you’ll need the aid of a professional.

High Water Bills

Have your water bills increased steadily over the past few months? It’s probably due to an ineffective plumbing system. High water bills are often a symptom of other problems like old, corroded, or backed-up pipes. You should have one of our professionals assess your system and decide what the next best step is for you.
