Water Line Repair & Replacement


Your plumbing system is a part of your house that remains out of sight and out of mind most of the time. Unfortunately, this makes detecting problems difficult because you typically can’t tell that there’s something wrong until the damage is already done. When it comes to replacing damaged or old piping, the damage can be pretty significant. That’s why water line repiping is such an important part of taking care of homes with old plumbing.

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 pretty frequently. Even your plumbing system wasn’t made to last forever! Water line repiping simply means that our team will replace your old copper or galvanized pipes with new ones. This is done to prevent or repair damage to the pipes that occurs with age due to corrosion and other wear and tear. We find that homes 15 years or older that have never had repiping work are the most likely candidates for water line replacement.

If you have an older home that uses copper or galvanized steel pipes and are experiencing frequent, 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. Instead of risking water damage and pouring money into frequent repairs, replacing the water lines entirely is often more cost-effective. Not to mention, you can live worry-free for many years to come after the replacement.

What Goes Into a Water Line Repipe?

When it comes to water line repiping, there’s usually some confusion about what that actually means. That’s because there are many different parts to your plumbing system, with water lines being only a portion of the pipes running through your home. During water line repiping, our team:

  • Replaces the main hot and cold water lines that go to each fixture (faucets, appliances, etc.)
  • Put in new hose fixtures
  • Installs new valves under toilets and sinks
  • Replaces the supply lines

Many homeowners think of water lines and sewer lines as the same, but it’s important to think of water lines as the supply of water and sewer lines as the used water disposal system. Our water line replacement doesn’t include replacing water heaters, sewer lines, drain lines or the main water line running from the city meter to the house. If you have questions about what your repiping services include, don’t worry — your plumber will be happy to answer any and all questions you have throughout the process.

Quick Response Time

The response from Gotelli Plumbing was excellent. The next time Tom arrived right on time and the quality of his work was outstanding. When he finished he walked me through everything he had done and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I’m so thankful to have such professionals available when need and on such short notice.

Raymond R.

Excellent Service

Tom provided excellent service. He is obviously experienced- and quickly solved the problem. Our gas had to be shut off, so we were without our stove to cook, furnace to heat and hot water. Our home is happy again!

Keith B.

Tom of Gotelli Plumbing provided superb service for us in replacing a very balky tub spout, and worn out toilet parts. Not only was he extremely professional and thorough but he was able to answer all my questions concerning the service. I would give 6 stars if I could.

I had a great experience with Gotelli Plumbing when we needed a leak in a pipe fixed. Tom was professional and friendly. He also got the job done faster than original estimated, so the work was less expensive than I anticipated. I will use Gotelli Plumbing again in the future.

Water heater died just in time for Thanksgiving company to arrive. Gotelli sent Joey out first thing this morning. Not only was Joey a super nice guy, he fixed our heater quickly and for $450 less than a competitors bid. Will be going to these guys for all of our plumbing needs in the future!
