Reasons to Repipe Your OKC Home
There are a variety of reasons homeowners decide to invest in whole-home repiping services. Whether you are selling your home and need to upgrade the pipes from copper to PEX or are dealing with plumbing leaks, Edco Plumbing, Heating & Air is the team to call.
Common reasons for repiping include:
- Pinhole leaks - Many feel that a small pinhole leak in their piping is nothing to be concerned about – after all, it’s a small leak. However, this is not necessarily the case. Oftentimes, small leaks are visible evidence that larger, more serious problems exist within the piping that have caused the pipe to deteriorate, thus creating a small leak that could burst at any time.
- Leaks in pipe fittings - Another common reason for repiping is fitting seepage. The fittings at each of the pipe joints create opportunities for leaks to occur. Your plumbing system contains water that is under high pressure, which, over time, creates stress on particular areas of your piping, such as pipe fittings. A majority of supply line leaks actually occur near pipe fittings.
- Improper installation - Unfortunately, another common reason for repiping is faulty or improper installation of your plumbing system. Some construction companies cut corners to save themselves time and money, meaning you may have shoddy plumbing in your home that could require repiping far sooner than expected.
- Plumbing upgrade - most newer homes use PEX tubing rather than copper for pipes because it lasts longer, can handle freezing temperatures better, and is less expensive. If you are interested in PEX repiping, give our team a call!
Why You Need to Replace Your Galvanized Steel Pipes
Decades ago, many homes were plumbed with pipes made from galvanized steel. Although this was standard practice at the time, it didn't take long for people to start realizing that galvanized steel piping was of inferior quality; in fact, these pipes have a very high rate of failure and may only last a short time compared to other types of piping. Because they are so prone to corrosion, homes with galvanized piping are more likely to experience leaks, bursts, and problems with poor water pressure and quality. If you're not sure what type of piping your home has, we advise you to schedule an inspection with our OKC plumbers.
