What is Water Line Repiping
Though water line replacement sounds like your home’s equivalent of major surgery, it’s actually something we at Gotelli Plumbing deal with frequently. When your water lines are repiped, it just means old copper and galvanized pipes are replaced with new pipes. We find that homes 15 years or older who have never had repiping work are the most likely candidates for water line replacement. If you have an older home and are experiencing frequent and major leaks, you could be in need of water line repiping. If you do have frequent leaks, we find that repiping can actually be the cheaper and better long-term solution.
What Does and Doesn’t Go Into a Water Line Repipe?
When it comes to water line repiping, there’s usually some confusion about what that actually means. With water line repiping, we are replacing the main hot and cold water lines that go to each fixture. We typically also put in new hose fixtures, new valves under toilets and sinks and new supply lines. We are not replacing water heaters, sewer lines, drain lines or the water line running from the city meter to the house.
