The When and Why of Repiping

Despite hiding under floors or behind walls, whole home repiping provides immediate benefits. Old pipes are at high risk of corrosion, leaking and bursting. Their vulnerability to specific issues will depend on the materials used in their construction.Your repiping plumber may recommend whole home repiping or only replacing certain sections of your plumbing.

Cast iron pipes were once the most popular option for plumbing systems. Galvanized steel was standard prior to 1970, before polybutylene became the material of choice until the late 1990’s. Polybutylene (or PB) plumbing systems are common targets for whole home repiping. This material becomes brittle with age, making it prone to fractures. PB plumbing systems are very common in Austin, TX. Your repiping specialist will help you determine how to best replace PB pipes during a whole home repiping project.

Despite being common materials at the time, each of these materials were eventually found to be vulnerable to corrosion and breakage. Even copper piping degrades after enough time passes. Older homes will have likely relied on these materials for decades. For repiping specialists, it becomes a question of “when you should” repipe your house rather than “if you should”.

For whole home repiping projects, there are a variety of modern materials to choose from. An experienced repiping specialist can walk you through the advantages and possible drawbacks of each. Your repiping plumber from Fox Service Company will help make an informed decision about the best material for whole home repiping. Just call us at (512) 488-1120 for your free whole-home piping consultation and quote.

Regardless of the material used, corrosion and breakage should be avoided. This kind of damage will result in leaks, which in turn causes a host of other plumbing concerns. Poor water pressure, exposure to toxic materials, mold growth and water damage are just a few potential issues.

How Long Does It Take to Repipe a Whole House? What Does It Cost?

When replacing your home’s plumbing, repiping specialists may recommend whole home repiping. Even if existing pipes are in decent condition, complete repiping is often more cost-efficient long term. Total replacement may take up to a week to complete, but this depends on the number of repiping specialists as well as the size of your home.

Total costs are also variable. Your home’s size and the material used will have the largest effect. To reduce costs, you may be wondering if whole home repiping is covered by homeowners insurance. While damage from corroded or aging pipes are sometimes included in insurance policies, whole home repiping may not be covered. They are frequently considered preventative measures and the responsibility of the homeowner. Check with your policy or insurance agent to determine if whole home repiping is covered.
