At one point in time or another, the pipes in your home will leak or even burst due to decay, rust, corrosion and a host of other issues. Especially if your home happens to be older, you must have your plumbing inspected on a regular basis for possible signs of damage.
Otherwise, you may one day end up coming home to a house flooded with water or even sewage backflow, leaving a considerable amount of damage not only to your property, but more importantly to the health and comfort of your family.
Plumbing involves an intricate network of pipework that more often than not requires regular inspection, servicing and maintenance best done by professionals. While you may feel confident taking care of minor problems on your own, major projects such as total plumbing repipe, demands professional know-how and expertise. This is where Plumbers 911 comes in handy.
Here are five factors that point to the need for a total plumbing repipe.
Aged pipes can wreak havoc in your home. It is often the root cause of leaks, clogs and other issues experienced on a regular basis. To confirm if your pipes are really past their prime, review the home inspection report usually given when a home is purchased. Check to see what type of pipes you have, since different materials have different life spans. Here are the two main parts of your piping system and what they’re usually made of:
- Supply pipes. These are the ones that bring potable water to your home. Since they are subject to constant pressure, when they leak or burst the damage done can be enormous and more costly. They are usually made of copper, brass or galvanized steel. Copper lasts 70 to 80 years, while brass and galvanized steel both last 80 to 100 years.
- Drain Lines. These are the pipes that carry used water and waste as they exit your home. They can be made of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) that lasts around 24 to 40 years or cast iron that lasts 80 to 100 years.
While there is a certain projected life span for each pipe material to somehow serve as a guide, your pipes can still suffer from premature aging usually due to underlying factors, such as hard water build-up or constant stress from the strong pressure of water. In order to extend the life of your pipe system, it would be best to contact our repiping experts for inspection, repair, maintenance or replacement.
Obsolete pipe materials, such as lead or polybutylene, demand replacement ASAP.
Lead leaked into your home’s water supply is a serious health hazard. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development strongly recommends that you have your water checked, since lead content that is higher than 50 parts per billion (or 0.05 ppm) is toxic. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emphasizes that the physical and mental development of children six years of age and younger can be dramatically delayed and stunted due to exposure to lead.
Polybutylene was used in the 1970’s up to the 90’s. This material has now been found to be of inferior quality that more easily breaks than its counterparts.

Plumbing dysfunctions, such as leaks and clogs, are the most obvious symptom of a faulty piping system. Leaky pipes can be sneaky and cause silent damage. Leaks can slowly but surely waste water resources and add to your water consumption costs. They’re usually the reason behind the sudden increase in your utility bill. Clogs can potentially burst a pipe and spread damage not only to the entire plumbing system but also to your property, appliances and other home assets. Therefore, if you experience leaks or clogs, immediately give us a call before even more damage is done.
Water discoloration is another symptom of damage in your plumbing system. It can either be because of a rusty water heater tank, or perhaps the pipes themselves are rusty and need to be replaced. The simple solution to this problem is total plumbing repipe. We can assist you not only in the replacement aspect, but also in the inspection and maintenance to be done on a regular basis after repiping.
Corroded pipes require replacement and repiping ASAP. Check exposed pipes in your basement and utility room for signs of possible corrosion, such as stains, discoloration, flaking or dimpling. Corroded pipes result to a host of other problems. They can cause leaks, bursts, as well as water discoloration and contamination.
