Repiping involves replacing an old, non-functioning plumbing and sewer drainage system with all new pipes and parts. When our plumbing technicians are finished, you will have a new plumbing system that will last for many years. Sometimes older homes have outdated and inefficient plumbing and drainage systems that do not meet city codes and need to be replaced. Older pipes may be made of the wrong material, cracked, plugged with tree roots or corroded beyond good use. If plumbing pipes are in bad condition, it is better to replace them.
The two most common pipe materials in use today are copper and CPVC. Copper pipes are the strongest, longest lasting material. The solder used on joins is no longer led, so is safe. They can withstand rodents trying to chew them and do not become brittle with age. CPVC is a plastic pipe material that is less expensive and easier to work with. It will not rust or develop pin holes. Your plumbing technician can help you decide which material is best for your plumbing system.
