These are signs that your plumbing system may need a partial or complete repiping. If you live in the Greater Vancouver area or in a surrounding region, then 911 Rooter will have you covered, with our skilled and experienced plumbers.
Over the years, we have completed repiping projects for hundreds of households in Vancouver, and many commercial properties. Some of these have been simple, while others big and complex, which means we have built up a lot of expertise with re-piping.
As a homeowner, it might be confusing to know if your home needs repiping. This depends on many factors including:
The kind of repiping we do for your home will mostly depend on the cause of the problem. Sometimes, the pipes rust out slowly, which means that they need to be replaced completely. At other times, there may be a leak at the center of the pipes or at one of the joints. When this happens, we may replace only those pipes that need replacing.
Decreased pressure levels call for a complete repiping of your system. However, this is not as daunting as it may sound at the beginning. No repiping job is too big for our plumbers, as we have successfully worked with many commercial as well as residential systems before.
Although you might find it difficult tell when you need to undertake repiping, we give you some tell-tale indicating signs.
When the water coming out of your outlets is to slow, the usual reason is that there is either a leak in one of the pipes, or they have widened from inside. Widening happens when the pipes rust on the inside. Usually this happens only after 10 or 20 years with copper pipes.
When this happens, we recommend a complete repipe to our customers. Call 911 Rooter for a repiping if your plumbing system, especially if it is more than 20 years old.
If you notice leaks at more than one joint in your home, you may need a complete repipe. This is because when more two or more pipes leak, there is a great chance that the others will follow. On the other hand, if there is a single pipe leak, we will only recommend you replace a single pipe.
For many of our piping projects, we use PEX pipes rather than traditional copper ones. PEX is similar to PVC. We prefer this material for our customers because:
That being said, PEX is not as durable as copper, so we only use copper piping for outdoor fixtures. Our plumbers will only choose the most appropriate material for the job, so you won’t spend more money than required to have a first rate, high quality plumbing system for your property.
