What Material Do We Use?
At Shamrock Plumbing, we only use the best materials when it comes to your safety. That is why we choose to install PEX Ultra lines.
PEX is designed to be durable, flexible, and resistant to UV rays. They successfully tolerate hot water temperatures as well as acidic water, making them resistant to corrosion.
Here are some of the benefits of replacing your older pipelines with PEX:
PEX is more affordable than copper (about one third the price of copper pipes). PEX is also more durable, making it a great value for homeowners who require a larger repiping job. You do not have to worry about PEX corroding, bursting, or becoming vulnerable to scale buildup in the long run.
Easy and fast installation
Are you planning to remodel your kitchen or bathroom? Consider installing PEX for its flexibility. Unlike copper pipes, there are fewer fittings involved with PEX and there is no need for cutting or soldering. This makes it very easy to fit through walls during a remodeling job.
Lowered risk of health/safety issues
Since PEX does not require soldering or other connections, you do not have to worry about the additional safety hazards as you would with copper pipe installations.
What are the Benefits of Timely Pipe Replacement?
Repiping your home can alleviate many of your plumbing issues and bring you the peace of mind you need.
- Healthier and cleaner water
- Improved water pressure
- Increase in your home’s value
- Decreased risk of further plumbing damage
When is Repiping Necessary?
Repiping is often needed in older homes. If your home is over 10 years old, you may need to consider a water line repipe.
Some of the more common signs that repiping is necessary:
- Unusual color or taste to your water
- Decreased water pressure
- Slab leak problems
- Leaking pipes due to corrosion or other damage
If you notice these or other issues with your water line or water supply, it’s recommended to call a professional for an inspection and accurate diagnosis. A licensed plumber will be able to let you know if a full repipe is recommended.
Do You Still Have Galvanized Steel Pipes?
Older homes are more likely to feature galvanized steel piping. These materials were once thought to be the most reliable; however, it has been discovered that they are prone to corrode and fail over time.
If your home is still using galvanized steel pipes, we urge you to replace them ASAP. Corroded lines can lead to sudden pipe bursts, damaging clogs, and other major issues that will affect the health and safety of your water supply as well as the structure of your home.
What About Polybutylene Pipes?
Another type of piping that needs to be replaced quickly is polybutylene. This material, also once highly regarded, reveals a propensity for premature failure. Polybutylene is likely to disintegrate or decompose and lead to significant wear over time, causing the pipe to burst.
Avoid significant property damage and consult your trusted plumber for the steps you need to take to ensure your plumbing lines are safe for long-term use.
