Will all homeowners need to think about Kenmore-area repiping service? Not necessarily. It all depends on the age of your plumbing, the materials they are made out of, and whether or not you are having recurring issues. Westview Plumbing is to address all of your questions about repiping so that you have a clear picture as to whether or not this is the right option for your unique situation.
What is Plumbing Re-Piping?
With repiping, you have more than a run-of-the-mill plumbing issue. Occasional plumbing problems are expected, but they are also normal as part of homeownership – repiping is not. Many plumbing woes will be minor, with some homeowners tackling minimal tasks as a DIY.
However, when you have constant plumbing issues, contamination, or water loss, it is time to think about plumbing repipe service.
Repiping involves the removal of all hot and cold water pipes within the entire home, then replacing them with all new materials. It is hard for many homeowners to tell when it is time for repiping, so it is best to call a trained plumbing professional for a thorough inspection and assessment. This is where we are happy to help at Westview Plumbing.
Some of the signs we look for when determining if a home should have repiping performed include:
- The home is at least 50yrs old or more
- There is rust and/or mineral buildup within the water lines
- You are encountering multiple piping leaks
- You have had an issue with slab leaks
