When Does a Pipe System Require Repiping?
If plumbing fixtures are having water pressure issues or the drinking water has been dirty lately, then it could be that the plumbing materials may have corroded. Corrosion occurs because the electrons in a metal have begun to interact with another substance. As these electrons “shed,” the metal pipe begins to wear away, leading to clogs or leaks. Although lead pipes are known for being especially corrosive, even high-quality copper piping can eventually corrode. Whenever noticing flakes of rust, minerals, or other tiny particles in the water, do not hesitate to contact a professional to check for signs of corrosion.
Replumbing the old pipes of your entire house may seem stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Professional plumbers know how to prepare the whole work area so taking out the old pipes and putting in the new ones is a prompt and effective process.
Throughout the repiping project, trust our team to:
- Choose the best pipe materials to install, including galvanized steel pipes, copper pipes, or PEX piping
- Cover the entire work area as well as nearby appliances in plastic to protect them from exposure to the elements
- Pinpoint the areas that need to be accessed using specialized tools

PEX has become extremely popular when it comes to repiping plumbing systems. One advantage of this material is that is highly flexible. This means it can be easily bent and curved around corners and obstacles. Since it does not require additional fittings or connectors, this reduces the risk of leaks and ensures a more efficient installation process. PEX is also resistant to corrosion and scale buildup, which maintains the flow rate and reduces the need for frequent maintenance. Most importantly, PEX is cost-effective and durable, with a lifespan of up to 50 years, making it a long-term solution for repiping projects.
