As with any complex mechanism, it only takes one weak spot in your plumbing system for the whole thing to malfunction and cause problems in your daily life. Pipes that you never see are responsible for bringing water to your faucets, washing machine, dishwasher, through your water heater and for removing waste from your home. When those pipes are working at full capacity with no issues, all is well with the world. When there is a leak that disrupts the flow, you need a solution to make it right again.

Why Do I Need Repiping?
There are a number of different plumbing solutions, depending on the specific issue, one of which is called repiping. This option is valuable when there is a split or crack in one section of pipe, but the rest of the system is working fine. Repiping consists of replacing sections of damaged pipe with new pipe, but leaving the rest of the pipe alone. This repair method saves the homeowner time and money, because only the weakened section is replaced and a widespread repair isn’t required.
Older Pipes Mean More Problems
It makes sense that older homes have older pipes, and have a higher likelihood of weakened sections of pipe leaking or bursting, causing property damage. If you live in an older home and notice signs of a leak, such as gurgling or dripping noises or if you have higher water bills than normal, calling a plumber in to have a look is a good idea. If there is a leak and it is contained to a specific section of pipe, repiping may be a viable solution.
Repiping with PEX and Copper
The two most common types of pipe used these days are copper and PEX (polyethylene), which are both suitable for repiping. Copper piping has been around forever, so it is a familiar material for plumbers to work with, and PEX is found in many homes and business as it is easy to work with and weather resistant.
If you have leaking pipes, the solution doesn’t have to be nearly as invasive as it used to be. Call Bellows Plumbing, Heating & Air and we will send a technician to evaluate the situation and determine if repiping is the right solution for you.
