Living in southwest Florida puts us at greater risk for certain plumbing problems, one of them being the deterioration of copper water lines. When this occurs, the only sure fix is a total home repipe, which includes the replacement of all existing water lines with clean, safe PEX – a material that is resistant to the effects our water has on copper.
The procedure of repiping consists of running new hot and cold water lines overhead, down walls, and connecting them to your existing water fixtures. Shut off valves, fixture supplies, icemaker and dishwasher lines are also replaced, as well as washing machine hoses. At the end of the process all pressurized water lines from your main shut off valve forward are replaced.
There are several reasons that make repiping a necessity, but one of the biggest factors is the water itself & the type of piping you have in your home.
Some common reasons for repiping include:
Areas that receive water from reverse osmosis plants such as Cape Coral, Ft Myers, Pine Island, Captiva, and Sanibel experience the greatest need for repiping.

Many insurance companies are now requiring home inspections to find out if a home has polybutylene piping. When that piping was first discovered, it was thought to be the next great advance in plumbing pipes and fixtures. In fact, it was installed in an estimated 1 in 5 homes between the years of 1978-1995.
Shortly thereafter though, homeowners found out that the piping wasn’t reliable. It become brittle over time and if left unchecked, caused extensive water damage to the home. It caused a class action lawsuit and is basically what we like to call a “ticking time bomb.”
That’s why insurance companies are cracking down on this certain type of pipe and refusing to cover homes if they have it. It also greatly decreases market value on a home.
If you think that you’re home has polybutylene piping, feel free to give us a call at 239-212-0299 or contact us online. We would be happy to walk the property and provide you with a free repipe estimate!
On average, PEX piping lasts well over 50 years and comes with a 25-year limited warranty. PEX piping is resistant to the chemicals used in water, has a smooth, friction free inner bore which results in a high flow rate and creates less of an opportunity for bacteria to grow. It almost completely eliminates scale build-up and does not rust, pit, or scale. It’s non-toxic and environmentally friendly,
We replace all of the existing water lines with clean, safe PEX piping. It lasts a lifetime and won’t corrode like copper piping does when exposed to water filtered via reverse osmosis.

It may be a lot of money up front, but in the long run it will actually save you money in repairs and also increase your home’s value. In fact, the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors says, “It is far cheaper to replace polybutylene pipes before they fail and release their contents onto floors, appliances, and furniture.”
