How Does Repiping Work?

Mindful homeowners and property owners are conscious of the plumbing system, regardless of how quietly it’s working. While the plumbing system is mostly buried underground or within walls and floorboards, it should be inspected periodically if you want to avoid headaches. Eventually, simple checkups and repairs will not be enough. When your building gets old and plumbing issues become frequent, a repiping might be the feasible option.

In this article brought to you by Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, we will review what repiping is and when you might need to schedule one. If you need an emergency plumber in the Pittsburgh area, then feel free to call Mr. Rooter Plumbing any time. Our live representatives are ready to take your call today.

What Is Repiping?

There are many pipes, drains, and other components in your plumbing system. These different parts are connected to one another, and they can be disconnected too. Of course, they can also become damaged. When one piece gets damaged, it can be repaired or replaced if necessary. What happens when multiple or a majority of the pipes are in bad condition though? They will likely all have to be replaced.

Repiping is the complete replacement of all of the water supply plumbing system. This service generally excludes the drain line, and is focused on the water supply lines. Repiping also excludes the sewer line and outdoor plumbing pipes. In short, repiping is the full replacement of water lines in the building.

When to Repipe Your Plumbing?

There is no one answer to this question. A properly installed plumbing system that is properly used and routinely maintained will last longer than a poorly installed and neglected system. There are some signs that it is time to repipe though. Here are some things to consider:

  • The Age of Your Building: If your property is over 50 years old, then it might be time to consider new piping.
  • Multiple Leaks: One or two plumbing leaks can be patched up, but multiple leaks is a sign that the plumbing is getting old.
  • Rust and Corrosion: Is your drinking water discolored? Rust and other minerals in the water lines can do that. Old, corroded pipes should be replaced sooner rather than later.
  • Slab Leaks: If there is a water leak under your concrete foundation, then you better have those pipes replaced as soon as possible.
