Repiping in Belleville, IL
The art of a repipe is a major job that should only be done by professionals. Your plumbing is not going to last forever. We all know that, but you can make it last longer through a repipe. It’s a permanent solution for defective piping that’s older. We can repair your pipes without having to destroy your home.
If you live in a house or building that’s been built 20 years ago or longer, there’s a higher probability that the water pipes are made of a galvanized pipe material. These galvanized pipes will start to worsen as time passes and will probably require a copper repipe to offset the damage, wear and material corrosion of your existing pipes.
Corroded pipes in the home can cause an alarming loss of water quality and may even pose health concerns. A copper repipe is the removal or bypass of existing plumbing pipes, replaced by brand new copper pipes. The copper used is among the finest quality available and guaranteed for life.
When a repipe is necessary:
- Degeneration of your pipes
- Mineral deposits in the pipes
- Lead pipes in older homes
- Polybutylene pipes in older buildings
Will the cost of a repipe break the bank account?
The cost for a repipe varies on your home size and plumbing layout.
Cast iron pipes will last for many years, but they will eventually rust out from the inside out. The use of caustic chemicals to open clogs can accelerate the process. A repipe may be the answer. Just because your pipes are old doesn’t mean they need to be dug up.
We work on many older homes with cast iron pipes. We never suggest that they are changed just because they are cast iron. We highly recommend that they are cleaned out annually to remove built-up crud as we have seen 3″ pipes that have not been maintained have only 1″ of effective drainage due to build-up.
If your pipes are rusting through or cracked and leaking, it will be wise to change them out. If they are rusted through in some areas, the rest are sure to follow. It will cost more, in the long run, to keep patching them until they totally fail.
