Why Should I Consider Repiping My Home?

Sometimes homeowners will reach out and say, “My home is [this many] years old. Do I need new pipes?” The answer is we need more information! There is not really a terminal date for pipes of any kind. They are not going to self-destruct just because they’ve hit a certain age. That being said, there are some common factors that may lead you to consider repiping.

  • You have galvanized pipes in your home — There was a time when galvanized pipes were considered rust-resistant. This just isn’t the case. They rust easily, which can lead to restricted water flow, tainted water, and yes, leaks.
  • Frequent leaks — Okay, so it’s not just galvanized pipes that leak. You may have copper pipes, which many consider being the gold standard in terms of piping materials. However, copper pipes can corrode over time, too, and will eventually need replacement.
  • Poor design — Did someone do a real rush job when installing the pipes in your home? Is the system kind of cobbled together? Do you have pipes passing through areas where they’re something of an eyesore? Let us know so that we can repipe your home the right way!

We Use Viega PEX Solutions

Viega is producing some of the finest PEX piping solutions available today, including PureFlow PEX tubing that is made right here in the United States. Some homeowners may be surprised to hear that plastics are being used for whole-house pipe installation projects, in addition to drain repair and general pipe repair applications. There are a lot of benefits to be had with Viega PEX products, though.

Unlike polybutylene pipes that were commonly manufactured and used from around 1978–1995, PEX pipes are really built to last. Polybutylene, which is a type of plastic resin, may have been heralded as the pipe of the future, but the future sure did bring a lot of headaches! So much so, in fact, that the presence of polybutylene pipes in your home alone is enough to justify repiping.
