The Reason for a Repipe
Worn or damaged plumbing pipes can lead to various problems in your home. Galvanized iron pipes in older houses eventually corrode which causes rust in your water supply; Copper water lines will rot away and could result in water damage due to leaks or breakage. It could be time to install new pipes if you notice a drop in water pressure, see or smell mildew. The average galvanized pipe lasts around 40 years and copper pipe last around 20 years before it will need replaced.
How is a Repipe Done?
If you have a cement slab home, most of the time the new water line are installed in the attic and dropped down in the 2 by 4 walls to the plumbing fixture. This process might require sheetrock being removed. This is the process used if you have a large attic.
A few homes on concrete slab might need to be dug around the home to install new pipes. If you do not have any attic space you would use this process. You dig around the home to each fixture and install the new pipes.
If you have a home that is off grade (you can crawl under), you can install all the new water lines under the home.
The two examples above the new water lines in the attic should be strapped and insulated. All hose bibs should be anchored and insulated.
This is just a brief description, for more information abut Slab Leak Repair Services in New York On all our re-pipe we use Brass ball valves and connectors to make our work last a long time.
What if I have Copper Pipes?
Most pinhole leaks are caused due to corrosion. There is a chemical reaction from the water and the copper pipe. The water pressure will find a weak spot usually close to a soldered fitting. The reason for this is when you heat a metal you weaken it and the integrity of the pipe is compromised also they used an acid based flux and unfortunately inferior workmanship when they applied too much heat and did not wipe off excess flux. Another reason for leaks is lightning. We live in the lighting capital of the world. We defiantly get busier with leaks during lightning storms. If lighting does hit the water lines it usually creates a series of weak spots. Also the electrical ground is typically grounded to copper usually at a spigot. This causes electrolysis where we have found most first leaks occur close to the ground.
When we re-pipe we eliminate all of the above. The process for a typical home is: We either take the water from PVC outside the home or from the water meter if copper is run from the meter to the home. We then reroute the water lines overhead and down the walls using our expertise to do the cleanest job possible with as little inconvenience to the homeowner as possible. A typical home will be re-piped in one day with drywall repair done on the second day. Larger homes take longer but the homeowner is never left without water.
We do not sub contract our work like some companies. Our re-pipe crews re-pipe, every day and are trusted long time employees, not someone in between companies.
We do recommend replacing water heaters that are 10 years or older. When re-piping we can provide water heaters at cost with a considerable savings to the customer.
What if I have Polybutylene Pipe (poly)?
Poly is a gray pipe with crimp fittings which are usually copper or brass, originally plastic fittings were used. There were several class action law suits due to these plastic fittings failing and splitting hence flooding. However back in the 90’s we were not seeing any problems with the pipe itself. However several years ago we started to see problems with the pipe itself splitting and flooding. The high chlorine content in our water is drying the product out and forcing it to split. Poly was designed as a flexible pipe, rather than using fittings for every change of direction or offset the pipe would be bend, it is typically were we see the failure occur as the pipe is strained at this point creating a weak spot. The alarming thing here is upon splitting it floods quickly as full pressure pumps water through out your home or business unlike a pin hole leak on copper which does minimum damage in comparison.
Most insurance companies will not insure Polybutylene Pipe due to the amount of damage which occurs from a failure. Currently this issue arises when a home owner is selling, buying or changing insurance companies.
