Repiping 101

Davie Plumber

Is It Time for Repiping?

Does Your Home Need Repiping?

You may have heard of repiping before. This is basically when your entire home is repiped and fitted with all new piping. Older homes may just have plumbing that is starting to break down and deteriorate, so it is necessary to have the repiping process done.

While there are other reasons a home may need repiping, it is a rather large project you need to undertake. It can also improve the energy efficiency of your home as well (as insulated plumbing can deliver hot water to your faucets faster without as much heat loss). When it comes to repiping, here's what you need to know.

How Do I Know If I Need Repiping Job or a Pipe Repair Job?

If you have run into trouble with your current plumbing, you need to bring in a plumber in order to look over the situation and correct it. The plumber can be of more use to you here as well. A plumber is able to look over the entire house's plumbing situation and determine if this is just a minor problem that is isolated to one area of the house or if it is likely to repeat itself throughout the rest of the home.

Because of this, you really need to keep all of this in mind when it comes to having your plumbing looked at. The plumber can tell you for sure whether or not you need to have the pipe repaired or replaced.

Daily Home Routine

The short answer to this question is yes, it is going to affect your daily routine, but only for a time.

While it is not necessary to have the entire water system shut down for all of the repiping, there are going to be times where you simply are not able to use anything that requires water inside of the home.

Repiping Job Length

This is going to depend on the size of your home and the number of fixtures you have. Regardless of this, you are going to be looking at least several days if not longer. It is best to discuss how long it is going to take with your plumber.
