Should you Repair your Pipes?
Many homeowners will try to avoid a repiping project for as long as possible. Repiping is often considered expensive and the work required is extensive. Many homeowners will choose to simply repair their pipes when they notice a problem. For small leaks or one-off ruptures, repairing the issue is often recommended since taking on a repiping job is such a large undertaking. However, if your pipes are continuously leaking or they require frequent repairs, repiping your entire home is often the more efficient and economical option.
Signs That Repiping Is Required
If you notice any of the following signs in your home, you should definitely consider repiping:
- A change in the color of your water
- Bad smells coming from the water
- Reduced water pressure
- Rising or higher than normal water bills
Any number of these issues could indicate a serious problem within your piping system and the only way to remedy it is through repiping.
PEX or Copper?
In the plumbing industry, there are two standards for piping material. Both PEX and copper have great benefits such as removing any metallic taste from the water and preventing corrosion. However, they also have several differences that may make one material better over the other for homeowners. The main differences include:
- Flexible material that is easy and inexpensive to install.
- Resistant to freezing and acidic substances.
- Damaged by UV lights and cannot be used outdoors.
- Not recommended to attach directly to a water heater.
- Strong and durable with joints that will not sag over time.
- Lasts longer than PEX piping.
- The upfront cost to install is more expensive.
