Water leaks can become a headache for any Eatonville homeowner. But, how can you tell if it is time to consider repiping service for your water or sewer lines? Many homeowners struggle with planning such a significant project, but there are times when it becomes essential. Our team at Westview Plumbing is happy to discuss your options and address any concerns you have!
Small leaks might be common and relatively straightforward to fix. However, more significant leaks can bring on substantial issues. If you start to see ongoing problems with your sewer or water lines, it might be time to consider repiping seriously.
What Does Repiping Mean?
A repiping project involves completely replacing old pipes. Technicians come into your home, remove all the broken, worn-down piping, and install brand-new piping materials. This project is often required for older homes outfitted with outdated materials, or the homeowner encounters many recurring plumbing issues.
When Should You Consider Repiping?
These are some of the signs we discuss with homeowners curious about sewer or water line repiping:
- You have galvanized steel or lead pipes throughout your home
- Regardless of multiple repair projects, you still have broken or leaking pipes
- You are planning to remodel your home and update everything
Home plumbing repiping is a sizable investment and an involved home improvement project. You should always have a detailed estimate from a plumbing team that inspects your pipes.
