Repair or Repipe

The first step in determining whether repair or repipe is required is having an experienced plumber from Plumbing Plus assess your situation. If you notice that an isolated leak or a small portion of your existing piping or valves are corroded/cracked, you may be able to repair the problem and not install a new system. If you are experiencing low water pressure throughout all the faucets in your house, notice large corrosion or several leaks, it may be time to repipe your home.

What is Copper Repiping?

Copper repiping is a process of refitting pipes in a home or business. Repiping is not a temporary fix or replacement of short sections of pipe throughout your structure. Copper repiping gives you great water pressure throughout your home, improves delivery of hot water, eliminates costly water damage repair bills and saves money on water lost to an inefficient system.

Repiping projects should not wait until you start noticing leaks. Watch for signs associated with degenerating pipes, such as flakes of dark material in your water, odd-tasting tap water or decreased water pressure.

A good way to determine if your pipes need repair or replacement is the “Flow Test”. Turn on multiple faucets in your home and check for a significant drop in water pressure. Make sure to check showers, sinks, and outside faucets at the same time to check your water pressure.
