What is Re-Piping and Why would I need it?
Plumbing systems don’t last forever, as pipes will eventually wear out. The process of replacing old, worn-out pipes is known as re-piping and it is a task that all homeowners will likely need to have performed at some point. Here are some signs that could indicate that your home (or business) needs to be re-piped:
Your home is older than 50-years-old. Galvanized steel use to be the primary material used in plumbing systems up until the mid-twentieth century. If your pipes haven’t been replaced since the house was built, the pipes could be starting to corrode and need replacing.
• Discolored water. If the water coming out of your faucet has a reddish or brown tinge to it, it’s a sign that your pipes could be rusting, and the water is likely contaminated – and no longer safe to drink.
• Strange taste or smell. Even if the water looks normal, if it has an unusual odor or taste, it means your pipes may contain rust or mold – contaminating the water.
• Low water pressure. If water pressure is starting to slow down it could point to a variety of issues, including mineral buildup or leaks. Reduced water pressure is not only inconvenient, it could also lead to dangerous rust or mold developing.
• Pipe leaks. While an occasional, isolated leak is normal in pipes, if they are occurring frequently, or your pipes are backing up, it could be a sign that the entire plumbing system needs to be replaced.
