Should You Repipe?
While the idea of repiping your home may feel daunting, it is often a better long-term choice to replace old, worn-out pipes with a more efficient system that can help you save in energy efficiency and repair costs. If any of the following signs sound familiar, then repiping may be the more cost-effective option:
- Your water is discolored.
- Your water tastes or smells unpleasant.
- Your water bills are increasing.
- There has been a noticeable change in your water pressure.
Our technicians will walk you through the repiping process, making sure that you understand each step and that you feel confident and comfortable with your choice.
Copper vs. PEX Pipe
The two most common piping materials used in the industry are PEX pipes and copper pipes. Both come with their pros and cons, and it’s important to understand the differences between the two before making a choice:
- PEX pipes: PEX is a flexible, inexpensive, and easy to repair option. However, they cannot be connected directly to your water heater, and cannot be used outside since they are sensitive to UV light.
- Copper pipes: Copper pipes last longer than PEX pipes, and since they are strong and sturdy, the joints will never sag and do not often leak. However, they are more expensive than PEX pipes.
