Residential Services - Re-pipe

What exactly is a repipe?

If you live in a house or building that’s been built 20 years ago or longer, or live near water (Beach) there’s a higher probability that the water pipes are made of a galvanized or copper pipe material. These galvanized/ copper pipes will start to worsen as time passes and will probably require a CPVC repipe to offset the damage, wear and material corrosion of your existing pipes. Corroded pipes in the home can cause an alarming loss of water quality and may even pose health concerns. A CPVC repipe is the removal or bypass of existing plumbing pipes, replaced by brand new CPVC pipes. The cost for a repipe varies on your home size and plumbing layout.

What happens after the repipe?

The first thing people notice after a copper repipe is a dramatic increase in water pressure. Over time, corrosion and rust had collected inside your old pipes, restricting flow and causing water pressure loss. You’ll notice an overall improvement in your water quality too. With CPVC pipes free of contaminants or corrosion, you’ll see a clear difference in the water quality of your shower, your dishwasher and your washing machine.

What are the problems that I should look for?

If you experience low water pressure, your water is discolored or has a metallic taste, a slab leak appears or you discover existing pipes leaking or corroding, it’s time for you to replace your old water pipes by with new CPVC pipes.

This could also lead to leaks in your house, which can often be attributed to unhealthy mold and mildew within the walls.
