Over time, water pipes in Sacramento, Truckee, Tahoe and the Bay Area can become damaged. Mineral buildup and other problems over time can lead to broken, leaking or blocked pipes. If this issue isn't fixed right away, the entire plumbing structure of your home can face significant damage. This is where water line repiping can help.
Simply put, water line repiping is when new cold or hot water pipes are installed inside your home, for incoming water. In order to ensure long term reliability of the water pipes, different types of materials may be used:
Long used for piping and plumbing because of its impressive durability, not just in terms of the pipes themselves, but also for connecting them together, copper pipes last an incredibly long time. They also retain temperature well, which may help you save more on your energy costs.
PEX is a more affordable variation of copper, which makes it a great choice for residential customers. It's also resistant to acid and is highly flexible. About the only drawback for PEX style piping is that it should not be used outdoors as it can be damaged by sunlight, plus, it cannot be connected directly to a water heater the way that copper piping can.
The type of piping used in your home will depend on the extent of the repiping and many other factors. With this in mind, however, you may be wondering:
Water repiping in Sacramento, Tahoe, Truckee or the Bay Area might seem like a massive undertaking, which is why for most homeowners, a one-time repair of the affected pipe may be a better option. However, if your pipes continue to fail, there may be a deeper problem in terms of poorly installed piping that continually causes issues and necessitates a repiping. Common symptoms can include pipes that constantly leak even after spot fixes are done.
If left unrepaired, these leaky pipes can diminish the value of your home, particularly even if, after several fixes the pipes continue to leak and cause issues. Of course, water leaks aren't the only tell-tale signs of a possible repiping being needed. Other "symptoms"that may point to a potential repiping include:
These can also be signs of other water system problems so just because you may have these issues doesn't necessarily mean that your water line has to be repiped.
