Take the Plunge for Whole House Repiping
Are your pipes regularly clogging, leaking, or otherwise malfunctioning? If so, it may be time to consider repiping your entire home. Here are some instances in which you would benefit from replacing all the pipes in your plumbing system.
- Your pipes are made of galvanized steel. Before World War II, zinc-coated galvanized steel pipes were installed in American homes and businesses. However, as the zinc coating wore off, rust began forming. Left unattended, the accumulated rust would eventually block the entire pipe.
- You’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom. Remodeling your bathroom takes a fair amount of demolition, plumbing, and reconstruction. Repiping your home does too. If you’re thinking about redoing your bathroom and believe your pipes could use replacing, it’s a good idea to tackle both tasks at once.
- The pipes in your home are made of lead. The American Congress banned the use of lead pipes in 1986, but those already installed were allowed to remain. Serious risks are associated with lead exposure, so it’s important to change lead pipes out immediately.
- You regularly incur plumbing problems. If your plumbing system is often leaking, clogging, or failing, you might benefit from replacing all your pipes at once.
Murky or metallic-tasting water, cracks cause by frozen pipes, decreased water pressure, and limescale corrosion are all indications that you may benefit from repiping your entire home.
What to Expect During Whole House Repiping
When you invest in whole house repiping in Chino, CA, expect most rooms in your home to be under construction. Plumbers first locate pipes behind drywall and underneath floors. They will then cut access holes in the drywall to access old pipes and build the new ones. You will likely be without water for at least some time during your renovation, so communicate your needs and preferences openly with your plumber. Repiping can sometimes be completed in one day or may require several days, depending on the house’s size and the number of bathrooms. Once the repiping is complete, drywall experts can patch, skim-coat, and paint your walls.
