When Should I Consider Repiping My Home?
Repiping is recommended when plumbing lines become old, corroded or damaged beyond repair. Older pipes, especially those made of galvanized steel, can rust and corrode over time, leading to leaks, low water pressure and poor water quality. Galvanized steel pipes were commonly used in plumbing systems until the 1960s, but they have a lifespan of about 40 to 50 years. If your building has galvanized pipes that are over 50 years old, it's time to consider repiping.
Similarly, copper pipes can also corrode and develop pinhole leaks due to the acidity of the water or soil conditions. If you notice discolored water, low water pressure or frequent leaks, it could be a sign that your copper pipes need to be replaced.
In addition to age and corrosion, other reasons for repiping include:
- Burst pipes or frequent leaks
- Water damage to the building's structure or foundation
- Mold or mildew growth due to water leaks
- Poor water quality, taste or odor
- Low water pressure
- Inadequate water supply for the building's needs
- The need to upgrade the plumbing system to meet new building codes or regulations

What To Expect When You're Repiping Your Home
Repiping can be a disruptive and messy process, but it's necessary to ensure the long-term integrity and safety of your plumbing system. Here's what you can expect:
Inspection: Our plumbing professional will inspect your system to determine the extent of the damage and the best approach for repiping.
Preparation: We will then turn off the water supply and drain the pipes to remove any remaining water. We will also protect the surrounding areas with plastic sheeting and drop cloths to prevent damage and debris from spreading.
Removal: Old pipes, fittings and fixtures will be removed, which can be a noisy and dusty process. We may need to cut through walls, floors or ceilings to access the pipes.
Installation: The new pipes will be installed and connected to the fixtures and appliances. Our team will ensure that the pipes are properly supported and insulated to prevent damage and noise.
Testing: Once installation is complete, we will test your plumbing system for leaks and check the water pressure and flow to ensure that your system is functioning properly.
Clean-up: We'll leave your property as clean as we found it by clearing the work area and disposing of any debris and old pipes. We will also repair or patch any walls, floors or ceilings that were cut during the installation.
