How To Tell When Your Covington Property Needs Re-Piping

Re-piping a house involves taking out all old plumbing and replacing them with new piping materials. As a Covington homeowner, you will have several considerations, including various pros and cons of having a new system. Westview Plumbing is happy to assess your plumbing and review your options so that you can get the repair, replacement, or total re-piping service you need to return your property to fully functioning and hassle-free plumbing.

Several factors must get considered when repiping your home. This includes the age of your pipes, the materials they are made of, and the type of plumbing problems you often encounter.

These are some of the top indicators that point to any property needing whole-house re-piping rather than repair work:

  • Your current pipes are made from galvanized steel, lead, or polybutylene. Lead is known to be poisonous to humans, so replacing lead pipes and those with traces of lead like galvanized steel, is imperative. Additionally, polybutylene piping is to fragile to stand up to regular use.
  • Your pipes have outlived their lifespan. The older the plumbing gets, the harder it is to maintain functionality. Cast iron may last 75-100 years, while plastic piping like PVC could last 100 years or indefinitely.
  • You have to perform regular repairs or the plumbing system seems to be failing. If you have constant leaks, discolored water, or erratic changes in temperature, these could all be signs that your plumbing should be completely replaced.

Always call professionals like our team at Westview Plumbing if you are curious if it is time for re-piping. Once your repairs seem to be getting closer together or you are wanting to upgrade your property value, we can give you a fair and honest estimate for re-piping plumbing services.
