Greenwood Re-piping Services in Greenwood
Repiping may sound like an intimidating procedure. After all, it’s one thing to schedule a service call to repair a small leak, and another to ask for your entire plumbing system to be replaced. However, in some cases, it’s a necessary process. Old pipes deteriorating into dust and caked in corrosion can’t last forever, and it’s better to take a proactive approach than wait until they all simultaneously burst. Fortunately, our team at Plumb Doctor has ample experience providing repiping services, ensuring that the project is as smooth and painless as possible.
When is Repiping Necessary?
The most glaring reason to request repiping for your home is due to old pipes. If your home is past the 50-year mark and the pipes have yet to be replaced, chances are, they won’t remain intact much longer and have likely already started leaking. Further indications that your pipes have outlived their life expectancy are lowered water pressure resulting from the buildup of rust over time, and discolored water, which indicates that there’s so much rust it’s starting to break off and contaminate your water supply.
Even if the house isn’t quite so old, the need for regular repairs and maintenance could indicate that repiping is necessary. If your plumbing system was improperly installed or made with low-quality materials, you’ll end up spending more on the constant repairs than on a single repiping.
When moving into a new property or planning a massive remodeling project, it may be in your best interest to contact a professional plumber for an assessment of your plumbing system. The pipes may be in worse condition than reported, and discovering this sooner than later will save you a lot of trouble.
What Does Repiping Entail?
Given that repiping involves a replacement of your entire system of pipes, it’s certainly a much longer project than a simple repair. Most repiping services require a few days to a week to complete. While access to the interior of your walls will be required, we work in segments, ensuring that only small sections of your house are being worked on at a time, and ensuring that you still have the necessary access to follow your regular routine. During this period of time, we may need to cut into certain parts of your ceiling and walls. Any excess debris will be removed so that your space will appear untouched when we’ve completed working on the area.
The final step involves switching the house’s plumbing system over to the new pipes. Water may be temporarily unavailable at this time, so we’ll make sure to discuss the details with you to determine the most appropriate time for this portion of the process. At this point, we’ll inspect the new system and verify that everything is working correctly.
