As a Bothell homeowner, you may wonder when you should repipe your plumbing. There is actually no singular answer to this question, as it will depend on several factors. Depending on the materials used with the original plumbing system or the home’s age, some properties should be repiped sooner than others. You also want to consider water amounts used, the level of wear and tear, or the number of issues that require repair over time. Trident Plumbing & Drain Cleaning wants area customers to know that most homes are recommended for repiping every 10 to 20 years to be safe.
If you are experiencing problems or it has been some time since your last plumbing inspection, our technicians are happy to come out to take a look. The more you know about the health of your plumbing system, the easier it is to decide if repiping is the right course of action.
What Is Repiping Plumbing?
The repiping process involves replacing any worn-out old pipes in the home with brand-new materials. This is often a large undertaking but is often necessary to protect your home from plumbing issues and costly water damage. Many of the reasons a homeowner will begin a repiping project includes:
- Repairing or replacing damaged piping
- Upgrading to newer, more durable materials
- Improving water flow or pressure
- Putting in an all-new plumbing system
Copper is still the most popular material when repiping because it is long-lasting and durable. Additionally, copper pipes move cold and hot water more efficiently than other piping and are less prone to leak development.
There might be several reasons to repipe your home, including age and excessive repair calls. Plumbing issues can be a pain, but our Trident Plumbing & Drain Cleaning team is here for your repair, replacement, and repiping needs as you see fit.
