If your system needs repiping, we will be able to get you up and running again in no time.
Benefits of Repiping
Aside from avoiding constant leaky pipes, you also reduce your risk of other problems that come with old piping. New, clean pipes will provide you with clean and safe water that you can drink and use without worry. New pipes and drains will also improve efficiency, which means you can use multiple water sources (like a sink and a shower) at the same time without a problem. It will also help you save money on your water bill by stopping leaks and keep you from wasting water.
Choosing New Pipes
There a couple of good options for your new plumbing system: PEX piping and copper piping. PEX is a fairly new material. It is similar to plastic, strong and durable while still being flexible and lightweight. It will not corrode and is a very affordable option. Copper is also lightweight and has the added benefit of being eco-friendly. Copper does not corrode and so fewer supports are needed, making it a good choice for those on a budget.
