Repiping Services for your Arizona Home
Repiping is the process of replacing the pipes in a home. It is not a temporary patch or fix or the replacement of a short section of pipe. Repiping is a long term solution to serious pipe problems. It is the complete replacement of your plumbing supply system in Mesa, Chandler or Gilbert, done by Cadiente Plumbing.
As the pipes of a plumbing system age, they will need to be replaced due to corrosion, leaks, slab leaks, low water pressure, and rusty metallic tasting water. When you remodel a room it is the perfect time to repipe, before you finish and paint the walls.
In an older home, a complete repiping may be necessary. If you notice a small portion of your existing piping leaking it may be an indication of a larger problem. Other indications that repiping may be in order are, leaky pipes, low water pressure, rusty water, and extreme changes in water pressure or temperature in the shower or sink when someone flushes a toilet.
Old, corroded pipes may begin to develop pinhole leak. Because they are so tiny, these plumbing water leaks can go undetected for long periods of time, even in places with expensive water bills, like Gilbert Arizona. The longer it goes undetected, the more damage it is doing to the floors, walls, ceilings, and electrical systems.
Aside from corrosion, polybutylene is another problem in older homes. Polybutylene pipes were installed in millions of homes 20 – 30 years ago, before polybutylene was found to be highly defective. Polybutylene is a type of plastic originally thought to be an advance for plumbing pipes until it was discovered that chemicals in normal city water cause it to harden and become brittle. Polybutylene pipes are now known to have a short lifespan before they become prone to bursting. When a water pipe bursts the damage to your home and belongings can run into the tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention the loss of irreplaceable items, such as photos and keepsakes.
Repiping your Arizona home provides a multitude of benefits to you and your family. Water quality is probably the most important concern. Installation of clean new pipes is the best way to improve your water quality by ensuring that your water is free of materials leached from the pipes as they corrode. When your plumbing system is free of old, corroded pipes you will be free of discoloration and bad taste in your water.
Low water pressure is one more problem corrected by repiping. As sediment adheres to pipes it decreases their circumference, thus impeding water flow. New pipes help to protect your appliances, such as your washing machine, ice maker, and the filters on all appliances and plumbing.
Repiping your Arizona home with a high quality Mesa, Chandler or Gilbert plumbing service brings peace of mind as it assures; no more leaking pipes or water damage, clean, clear, safe water and it is also a great selling point for your home.
