What Is Whole House Repiping?

A plumbing system is a vast and intricate network of pipes which are made of varying materials. Some systems are built to last several decades while others, like PVC or cast iron, can last around and over 100 years. Needless to say, improper usage and accidents can cut the life expectancy of your plumbing system short. Proper care, periodic maintenance, and timely repair will allow you to enjoy the full potential of your pipes. Sooner or later, it will be time to replace your pipes. A whole house repiping is just as it sounds. If you need your pipes completely replaced, then call Mr. Rooter Plumbing to get started. If you are not sure, then continue reading to figure out if it is time for a whole house repiping.

Some Signs That You Need A Whole House Repiping

Repiping your whole house is going to be quite an expense, so it is normal for you to wonder whether it is necessary or not. Sometimes a quick repair can have your system back in working order. Other times, the cumulative cost of constant repairs will mean a full replacement is more cost-effective. If you spot any of the following signs, then we recommend hiring a certified plumber from Mr. Rooter Plumber to schedule your flexible appointment as soon as possible:

  • Aged Pipes: Modern pipes are built to last much longer than ones built 50 years ago. If your building is around 50 years old and the pipes have not been fully replaced, then you would be wise to have your house repiped.
  • Leaking Pipes: Pipes that are exposed to the elements, pressure, and even tree roots can become damaged prematurely, but if mundane pipes are starting to leak then there is not much keeping the remaining ones from leaking.
  • Visible Corrosion: Take a stroll around your house to inspect visible pipes. Stains, discoloration, flaking, and rust are signs of corrosion. Replace corroded pipes as soon as possible.
  • Low Water Pressure: Clogs can be caused by a variety of reasons including sediment buildup. If you are turning the faucet to max and water is trickling, then it might be time for a whole house repiping.
