What is Copper Repiping and When Should I Consider It?
Copper repiping is essentially removing your existing plumbing and replacing it with new pipes. If, for example, you live in an older home with galvanized pipes, you might want to consider replacing them with copper before you start experiencing major plumbing issues. And this isn’t limited to the pipes that carry water through your home. Repiping can be used for sewer pipes and even gas lines.
Why You Need It
When old pipes become corroded or clogged, the best course of action is to replace them. If you don’t, they could easily develop leaks that could cause serious damage to your home as well as your yard. These are just a few of the signs that copper repiping may be necessary.
- You notice brown or rust-colored water coming from your faucet.
- Your water either has a bad taste or an unpleasant odor.
- Your pipes are leaking.
- You notice signs of corrosion.
- Your foundation is damp and you don’t know why.
- You have noticed a significant drop in your home’s water pressure.
