How Do I Know if My Pipes Need Replacement?
There are a few primary factors that you’ll need to consider before repiping the entire property:
- System age
- Piping materials
- Frequency of repairs
- Current functionality
Consider the material used in your home’s plumbing system. Galvanized steel is fairly rare nowadays, and lasts from 20-50 years. Copper is more common and can last over 50 years. Brass can last for 70 years. Compare the age of your system with the expected lifetime of your material, and calculate how many expected years you have left.
Next, consider the current rate of deterioration of your system (i.e. the frequency of repairs). If you are calling out the plumber every month to stop leaks, the accumulated cost of repairs might outweigh the investment of whole house repiping. You can weigh in the current use you’re experiencing from your system. Does your supply pipes provide ample pressure, or are you having to turn off appliances to compensate? If you’ve been settling for under-performing plumbing, just think of the added convenience that a new plumbing system could provide!
Choosing Your Materials
As we mentioned earlier, some materials last longer than others. You’ll want to talk with your plumber about which material meets your functional requirements and budget best. We’d be happy to help you deliberate on materials, whether you choose metal, PEX piping, or CPVC. If you’d like to get an estimate for your home, talk with one of our expert plumbers today at (817) 560-4144. When it comes to whole house repiping in Fort Worth, TX, we try to make the process as affordable and convenient as possible!
