Modern homeowners have a glut of conveniences at their disposal. Perhaps no single system is more vital to our way of life than the plumbing that both brings water into your home as needed and which disposes of waste and wastewater when necessary. Just think of all that you depend upon your plumbing system for, from doing the dishes and showering to washing your laundry and general household cleaning.
Now, just think about how much damage that water can do if it manages to get out of your pipes and leak into your home. Modern plumbing materials and system design help to minimize the risk of such problems developing. However, there is no such thing as a 100% reliable plumbing system. If you are experiencing certain problems with your home, and there are other deciding factors present, then repiping your house in Phoenix, AZ may be your best option. Here are a few tips on when to consider repiping services.
Do You Have Frequent Leaks?
A good plumber is going to be able to fix many leaks for you. Exceptional plumbers, such as those on our staff, are not only capable of fixing the trickiest of leaks, though, but also of really evaluating your situation and giving you the honest advice that you need. If leaks are a fairly frequent occurrence in your home, it may only be a matter of time before a big one strikes. You may also have “minor” leaks causing serious issues that you’re just not aware of yet.
Evaluating any exposed piping in the house is a good way in which to gather information for deciding on your next steps. If the pipes are really corroding, dimpling, or flaking away, then repiping may be a good option. You don’t want to wait for a major rupture before solving the problem at its core.
Is Your Water Pressure Low?
Do you live in an older home? Have you started to notice issues with low water pressure throughout the entire house? That could be indicative of pipes that are essentially closing up within due to mineral buildups. This type of problem takes a long time to develop, so by the time it does happen, replacing those old pipes is probably advisable.
Are You Renovating or Replacing Plumbing in One Area?
If you are planning a renovation or you need to replace piping in one area of the house, it may be a good idea to get the whole house done at once. Not only does this give you the opportunity to upgrade old, outdated materials in the house, but it helps to ensure that the new pipes are a good match for the existing system and that they system as a whole is working successfully with its many different components.
Whole-house repiping is a major undertaking, and we understand that it is the type of job that many homeowners are going to want to put off until absolutely necessary. The fact is, though, that sometimes being proactive can save you major headaches down the road.
