The Process of Repiping Your Home

Blueprint of a whole-home repipe

If you’ve ever heard of the process of “repiping,” you may have thought it was a daunting and challenging task. But don’t worry! Repiping is a relatively simple process that can help protect your home from water damage, provide better water pressure and temperature, and give you peace of mind. In this blog post, we’ll walk through the entire repiping process so you can understand what it takes to get your pipes fixed up and ready for use!

A Step-By-Step Guide to Repiping Your Home

Step 1: Assess the Damage

First and foremost, the plumbing experts will assess the damage to your existing piping system to ensure your home needs new pipes. This means looking for any signs of corrosion, leaks, or other damage. Repiping is likely a good long-term solution if your pipes are old or damaged.

Step 2: Choose Your Material

Once you have decided that repiping is necessary, it is time to choose the material for your new pipes. The two most common materials are copper and PEX (crosslinked polyethylene). Both materials have different advantages and disadvantages; therefore, it is essential to research each one thoroughly before deciding. Generally speaking, copper is more expensive but lasts longer, while PEX is cheaper and easier to install but may need to be replaced more often.

Step 3: Start the Installation Process

The repiping process typically takes two days to complete. On day one, all existing water lines are removed, and new lines are installed. Day two consists of testing the new lines for leaks and making sure they are working properly before turning them on for use. During both days of the process, there must be no running water or electricity in the area being worked on for safety reasons. Additionally, any furniture or belongings should be moved out of the way so that nothing gets damaged during installation.

Benefits of Whole-Home Repiping

When done correctly, whole-home repiping offers several benefits, including:

  • Increased water pressure
  • Temperature control
  • Improved air quality throughout your home due to fewer contaminants entering outdated pipes.
  • Prevent future problems like leaks and clogs.
  • Less energy is wasted due to low flow rates associated with corroded piping.
