What Is California Repiping and Why Consider It?
Ultimately, California Copper or PEX Repiping is totally replacing all of the existing hot and cold water pipes in a house, apartment building, commercial building, industrial building or office. The most preferable method of repair is to substitute galvanized pipes with copper pipes or PEX pipes. The method involves the removal of existing pipes in a building and replacement with new superior copper pipes or PEX pipes and fittings. Repiping isn’t restricted to water pipes. It can also be applied to gas and sewer pipes as well.
Since there is no way to successfully remove buildup or reverse the scaling process with metallic piping systems, home and business owners with scaled or corroded pipes are eventually forced to repipe the entire plumbing system.
The repiping process is also known as repipe, re-pipe, re-piping, new piping, re-plumbing, re plumbing, PEX repipe, AquaPEX repipe, slab leak and piping replacement.
How Do I Know if Repiping is Needed?
A repipe may be required if you are experiencing any or all of the following:
- Leaky pipes
- Slab Leaks and/or Wet Foundations
- Pipe corrosion
- Low or dramatic drop in water pressure
- Bad water odor or taste
- Rusty Water (or brown water)
Why Choose A California Repiping Specialist Over A Plumber?
When you are contemplating about the issue of having to repipe you are going to want to think about the type of business that can offer you the most knowledge, best prices and latest in plumbing technology. They should be in good standing with the Better Business Bureau, be licensed and bonded and able to provide references.
Copper and PEX Repiping Specialists only do repipes, which allows them to finish your project quickly and competently as well as supply you with the best possible prices. Most residences are entirely repiped in just one day. An additional benefit of using a repipe specialist, is they can often professionally repipe your home for about half the cost of a normal plumber or plumbing service provider, who doesn't specialize in repiping and typically charges twice as much for a repipe job that doesn’t provide the same excellent quality of the materials and craftsmanship.
Since every repipe job requires making some holes in your walls, repipe specialists have qualified, experienced technicians who are specially trained to proficiently patch the walls and provide you with a smooth, clean surface as well as stucco any exterior stucco surfaces while keeping your house neat and clean, protecting your floors and cleaning up at the end of every day.
The Rewards and Benefits of Copper and PEX Repiping
The benefits of repiping are:
- Reduced plumbing problems and expenses
- Clean/clear rust free water
- Better volume and water flow
- Improved tasting drinking water (a great feature if you plan on selling your home or building).
After repiping most people are amazed to find out they can have a shower, wash dishes, water the lawn, wash laundry, and use faucets and fixtures at the same time while maintaining excellent water pressure.
Perhaps you have put off repiping because you think it’s too much of a bother or that it might be too costly. But the costs of extensive water damage can undoubtedly outweigh the expenditure of repiping. When you are ready to contemplate repiping, be sure to get an assessment from a repiping specialist if you want to ensure the highest quality results at the lowest possible price.
