Wondering if your home or commercial building needs to be repiped? 

Here's How to Know:

While we'd all like plumbing systems to last forever, the truth is that pipes wear out over time. Repiping is the process of replacing old, worn-out pipes, and it is a project that homes and commercial buildings alike will need to have completed at some point or another.

  • Discolored water. 

    • Brown or reddish water that persists, is typically a sure sign that your pipes are rusting. Even worse, water from these pipes is likely contaminated and no longer safe to drink, bathe in or use to clean.
       

  • Bad taste or smell. 

    • Sometimes your water may look normal but still have an unusual odor or taste. While municipalities often add sanitizing chemicals (such as chlorine) that can impact the taste of your tap water, an unusual taste can also indicate mold or rust. 

  • Weak water pressure. 

    • Low water pressure can often point to a variety of issues including mineral buildup or leaks. While reduced water pressure is typically seen as a minor inconvenience, it can also lead to dangerous rust or mold developing.

  • Leaky or clogged pipes. 

    • It's normal to have an occasional leaky pipe. If you're experiencing this, we can certainly help (just contact us) however, if you're finding leaks to be a common occurrence, or if your pipes are backing up frequently, it could be a sign that it's time to replace your plumbing system.

  • Your home or building is 50+ years old. 

    • Years ago, galvanized steel was used as the primary piping material for plumbing systems. If your piping is original to your home or building, it could be starting to corrode from the inside out.
