Signs You Should Repipe Your Whole House
There are obvious and subtle signs that will help you decide whether you need whole-house repiping instead of simply replacing a small portion of your pipes. Our experience allows us to help you make the decision. The signs below help our technicians decide when it is necessary for us to gut and replace all your pipes.
Older pipes can be more dangerous than the small leaks you may be experiencing. Their age could lead to weakened walls, and they could be primed for bursting. You should consider replacing your pipes if they are older than 50 years. With regular maintenance and attention, your pipes could last longer, though.
Hearing rattling, clanking, thumping, and more from your pipes? These sounds aren’t typical for pipes and indicate there could be a problem. All Star Service and Repair can evaluate their condition and if we need to do a whole-house repiping.
Has there been a rotting smell coming from your pipes any time you shower or use the faucet? Or have you noticed your water tastes bad? Both of these signs, either paired or separate, mean you should have the pipes inspected. Copper, iron, or lead could be coming through the water supply, and you should have your pipes replaced.
Lead pipes were used during home construction throughout the 1970s, but we have since discovered the harm they have on the human body. Polybutylene pipes are known to cause leaks, and they should be checked regularly. Galvanized pipes also have a tendency to erode quicker than other materials used for piping.
Benefits of Whole House Repiping Projects
Getting good, clean water throughout your home is only one of the benefits you will experience from having All Star Service and Repair deliver a whole-house repiping. We have safer materials from which to choose when installing your new pipes. While some are more expensive than others, we work with your budget to help get the job done. PVC – or polyvinyl chloride – is a great, inexpensive choice for water lines. While you can’t use it for hot water lines, we have chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) as an option as well. You can also have copper piping, but it can be quite expensive to repipe your entire home with it.
