Your plumbing system will last a long time with proper maintenance and care. But even the best TLC can’t stop the effects of time, and if your system is a few decades old, it may be time to consider re-piping.
You may want to avoid thinking about re-piping since it is a big job and a big expense. But avoiding it will only make the problem worse and cost you more money over time. Re-piping your home can have a number of incredible benefits, including:
More Hot Water
Your hot water heater can only heat so much water at a time. But if your pipes are leaking, your heater can’t heat up the water fast enough to keep hot water running through the pipes. The heater also has a reserve of hot water, and once that runs out, it will take longer to get hot water from the faucet. If you have leaks, it will seem like the hot water is running out faster.
Re-piping your home will ensure that all the hot water makes it out of your faucets. It will also help your hot water to refill faster, ensuring that you have new hot water ready to go faster.
Better Water Pressure
Corrosion, mineral build up, leaks, and other problems with old or damaged pipes can cause all kinds of problems with your water pressure. You can have higher water pressure that puts a lot of strain on your pipes and can cause more damage. You can have low water pressure that makes it hard to take a good shower or to wash your clothes or dishes.
By replacing your pipes, you can get the right water pressure for your own comfort and for the longevity of your plumbing system.
Higher Quality Water
Plumbing problems can directly impact the quality of your water. Pipes that have become corroded or clogged with mineral deposits can allow all kinds of materials to get into the water, which can cause it to smell bad, to take bad, or to be discolored. The water can even stain your appliances or your laundry.
Re-piping your home can improve quality of your water. You can get clean water that tastes great and that properly cleans your dishes and your laundry.
Lower Your Bills
If your water heater is struggling to keep up with your needs, you are going to have higher electric bills. If you have an older piping material or your pipes are corroded, they won’t be as energy-efficient, and you will have higher electric bills. If your pipes are constantly leaking, you will have higher water bills.
Replacing your pipes can bring down your monthly utility bills significantly. But even if the change is only minor, you’ll have significant savings over the years. The difference will depend on the severity of the piping problems before the plumbing was replaced. The bigger the problems, the more you were likely spending on electricity and water, and the bigger the difference you will notice when you get new pipes.
Consider the incredible benefits of re-piping your home, and talk to a California’s re-piping plumber to determine if replacing your system is the best option. The plumber will inspect your pipes to determine their condition and give you an estimate about the remaining lifespan and the performance you can expect. Your plumber may recommend re-pipe repair or may tell you that whole house re-piping is best.
