When your car tires reach a certain age, you change them. When your washing machine has stopped working adequately, you restore it. Just like any other daily product you use, your pipelines will also have the necessity of repair at one point or another. Some instances will require minimal repair while other times, replacement is the only option.
Repiping entails the procedure in which a plumber replaces pipes that are either worn out or have corroded. These situations are common for older homes in which the pipes have simply broken down through years of use. Aged pipes have the greater likelihood of wasting water and achieving leaks.

When should you repipe versus repair your pipes?
Plumbing repairs can be expensive, but you might not need to replace the entire system. The first step in determining what needs to be done is having a professional evaluation of your system.
Depending on the extent of the damage, a technician can determine if repairs or repiping is the better option. However, consider if your home has an older plumbing system, a full replacement might be more beneficial. Certain types of pipes suffer from internal build up over time, resulting in odd tasting water and low water pressure.
What are the signs you may need this service?
Repiping is just what it sounds like – the process of replacing existing pipes with new ones. Although a professional evaluation is the favored choice in being sure that a repiping is necessary, there are small, clear cut indicators that it may be mandatory.
These warnings include:
- Rust. If your water takes a few moments to clear up after being turned on, it could be a sign of rust.
- Corrosion. If your water pressure is low or the shower dribbles rather than sprays, this could mean the pipes are corroded.
- Age. Pipes break down over time, but if your home is very old, it might have been built with traditional plumbing techniques which do not last as long.
What is the difference between copper and CPVC piping?
Copper piping is the traditional form of plumbing that is common in most properties. These are the rigid, solid metal pipes most people have installed. Copper pipes carry both cold and hot water, but run the risk of breaking down over time because of corrosion, rust, or other factors.
CPVC is our top choice when it comes to installing new pipes for your home or commercial property. CPVC pipes are simple to install, highly durable, and resist corrosion better than copper. They also provide their own form of insulation to resist freezing temperatures that could cause them to burst. Not only are they safer to use, as corroding copper pipes can contaminate your water supply, but CPVC pipes are actually more affordable too. If you are looking for pipes that will withstand the test of time CPVC is your best bet.
Greenlee Plumbing, Inc. has been serving the greater Atlanta area for years, providing plumbing services to residents across the area. We can install and repair both copper and PEX piping in your home or office.
