Homeowners rely on their water pipes to supply cold and hot water to their homes. Well-maintained pipes can work well for years, but pipes that are located in older homes can become corroded and worn over time. This corrosion in old homes is no fault of the homeowner! Pipes merely were not constructed as well thirty or more years ago, and repiping is the only way to keep water systems running properly in older homes.
Poor water pipes leak, reduce water pressure, and cause rust and debris to seep into drinking water. This can make it difficult to use water systems, and homeowners may start to notice that there is excess water around foundation areas. Bad pipe leaks can cause a great deal of structural damage, and homeowners who do not recognize that pipes are bad will sometimes think that water is leaking from the outside into the home.
Once evidence of corroded pipes is seen, a plumber must be called to assess the extent of pipe damage. Generally, plumbers will advise homeowners to completely repipe their homes with brand new piping. Entire home repiping is recommended because older pipes that look like they are in good condition will likely wear within a few years.
Plumbers will locate all water pipes inside and outside of the home, and they will schedule the repiping job. Copper pipes will be used to replace old pipes, because copper does not corrode and does not damage easily. Repiping can be completed in a few days and this time frame is considered minimal for most homeowners. The entire price of repiping will be outlined and explained to homeowners before jobs are begun, and this helps homeowners prepare for their plumbing costs.
Homeowners will see a vast improvement in their water systems as soon as repiping jobs are completed. Water will come out of the faucet clean and clear, and water pressure will increase to a normal level. Also, homeowners will see their basement areas and foundation dry out completely after a week or two.
