Re-piping is one of the many plumbing services that Rescue Plumbing provides. Re-piping is replacing a portion of, or all water lines from water meters or wells to the home and throughout. We can re-pipe the water lines in homes with concrete slabs or crawl spaces. Re-piping is typically done when there are multiple leaks throughout the water lines, when there is an issue with water volume, or when the pipe material is starting to break down. Rescue Plumbing also performs whole house re-plumbing, which is re-piping as well as changing drain lines and all plumbing fixtures.
Re-piping and re-plumbing are services that Rescue Plumbing performs on a regular basis. Re-piping is generally recommended when repair of the water lines would be so extensive that it would be more feasible to re-pipe the home instead or when piping material has begun to corrode or decay. Have you noticed that your tap water is red or brown? This could be rust coming from metal pipes that are breaking down. Pipes are made from a variety of materials which can impact to longevity of your plumbing system. In addition, some older homes have pipes made from materials which are hazardous or prone to breakage. We can come to your home and perform an inspection if you have any concerns about safety. Depending on locations of the water lines, insulation may also be required and provided.
Rescue Plumbing keeps up to date on code requirements which can change based on the county. We have re-piped a one bath home up to a six plus bath home. We have done single story to three story homes and even split level homes. With whole house re-piping, we provide shut offs outside the home for the water service but also provide shut offs to sinks, kitchen faucet, toilets, refrigerator ice maker, and water heater. We include thermal expansion tanks as well as pressure regulating valves with our re-pipes. Water pipes will be secured, not left “hanging”, in crawl spaces and attics. We always perform a line locate by calling “811” to ensure that all utility lines are located and marked for safety. With whole house re-piping, Rescue Plumbing will provide a 5-year warranty.
This type of job usually takes anywhere from 1 day to 4 days so people often are concerned about staying in their home during this process but not to worry. We will always leave at least one sink and one toilet working before leaving for the day so that you can stay in your home. The cost of this type of job can vary greatly depending on the size of the home as well as the installation strategy that will be required. For example, we may need to go through the attic, under the floor, in the ground, and around the walls. Call us, and we can come out to your home and give you an estimate of what needs to be done and how much it will cost. Remember, re-piping your home is a major repair. It is important to be sure that whomever you use to perform this task is licensed and insured.
