Reliable Piping Services For Homeowners
Your piping system supplies fresh, clean water to your residence daily while sending used gray water to a wastewater treatment facility for sterilizing. Luckily, the drain pipes that run throughout your home and connect to the main sewer line last decades, or even up to a century, with proper care, depending on the material makeup. But when do you need piping and repiping experts?
The five-star Rogers Heating & Cooling team offers reliable piping services in South Boston, VA and knows how to keep your system running efficiently, which includes knowing when to upgrade it to keep the water flowing with little to no downtime.
What Is Repiping?
Unlike repairs or section pipe replacements, repiping entails removing all existing pipes in your water supply plumbing system. We then install new equipment comprising any material, from PVC to galvanized steel, depending on your budget, preferences, and environmental factors. However, not all repiping projects include removing sewer or drainage systems, so ask your plumber if you need these additional services.
When Should You Repipe Your Home?
Whether you’re a new homeowner or have lived in your current house for years, we recommend having a Rogers professional check your system’s age. If it’s nearing the end of its lifespan, the material has likely weakened from excessive use throughout the years alongside natural factors like soil erosion and abrasive tree roots.
As the surfaces evenly deteriorate, pinhole leaks and broken seams become a regular concern causing constant repairs. If you need multiple pipe repairs every year, opt for home repiping to save on funds in the long run and prevent a full breakdown. While plastic and copper plumbing pipes last about 50 years, cast iron, galvanized steel, and brass pipes remain intact for up to 100. But any of the following may cause premature pipe deterioration that requires piping and repiping services sooner:
- Soil erosion
- Heavy usage
- 60 psi water pressure or higher
- Hard water causing corrosion
- Sending clogging materials into the system
Is Repiping Necessary?
Weak, corroded, and busted pipes only worsen with time, with the problem spreading over larger sections of your system. When this occurs, water can leak around your property, swamping your front yard, creating slab leaks in your basement, and producing water stains on your walls.
This damages your home’s wooden structure, breeding toxic fungi that smell musty and jeopardizing respiratory health after long periods of exposure. Leaking water or backups from clogs also lead to constantly running water that raises utility bills and harmful gray water resurfacing from fixtures and appliances. Consider a new pipe installation for whole-home protection.
