Why Consider Whole-House Repiping?
As your home ages, you may begin to see subtle signs that your plumbing isn’t as robust as it used to be, such as low water pressure, leaky pipes, and even discolored water. Our experts at Premium Plumbing in Tampa Bay area, FL, look for the following symptoms of an inefficient piping system:
- It’s over 50 years old: First and foremost, any lead pipes in your home should be replaced immediately—they are a health hazard and considered unsafe. Homes built before the 1970s used galvanized steel plumbing, which corrodes over time and is less durable than today’s plumbing. Another red flag that your pipes are unsafe is noise. Clanging, rattling, and other loud sounds can mean something is wrong.
- Visible corrosion: The most worrisome risk that comes with corroding pipes is the increased likelihood of leaks. If you see rust, flaking, small indentations, or stains on your home's pipes, this is indicative of a leak risk. It may be tempting to opt for a do-it-yourself patch repair on small leaks, but keep in mind that old pipes in hard-to-access places are likely springing leaks as well. This is an invitation for a burst pipe down the road.
- Fluctuating water temperature: It can be difficult to determine whether fluctuating water temperatures are related to a faulty water heater or old pipes, but if your water is freezing cold one minute and scalding hot the next, your pipes could be to blame. Similarly, if you notice other changes to your water, such as discoloration or poor taste, your home might need repiping.
How Whole-Home Repiping Works
First, we'll evaluate your plumbing to determine if all your plumbing needs replaced or sections can be salvaged. Then, we'll prep the area to ensure that, when we're done, everything is exactly the way we found it—minus new pipes. That includes covering any items near the work area with plastic.
After that, our skilled plumbers will remove and replace the pipes. We will have to turn off your water for a few hours here and there during the process. The entire process typically takes 1-3 days.
