Repiping your residential home can seem extremely daunting, and it is not always easy to tell when it is necessary. While the cost and time to completely repipe your home can seem impractical, our team at Plumbing Connection uses industry-leading technology to minimize destruction and complete the process quickly.
Repiping for Your Gastonia and Greater Charlotte Area Pipes
It is normal for your sewer and drain system to experience cracks, leaks, and clogs that require repair. However, there comes a point where constant repairs may be costlier in the long-run. While repiping takes a bit more time, it allows you to make a lasting investment in your home and provides you with the lasting solution that meets your pipe needs.
Reasons Your Pipes Need to be Relined
There are a variety of signs that indicate it is time to consider repiping your residential property. Some of the most common reasons your Gastonia or Greater Charlotte area pipes could need to relined include, but are not limited to, corrosion, old age, and interior or exterior pipe leaking.
First, small areas of corrosion in your pipeline could be solved locally using pipe relining or pipe bursting practices, but you should consider repiping if your pipes are experiencing serious corrosion. Corrosion will pollute your water and can impose serious health problems on whoever is using it. If you are noticing a reddish/brown tint to your water or low water pressure, it is likely you are experiencing corrosion. Second, pipes don’t last forever, and this is especially the case if your residential property is over 50 years old. Galvanized steel that was commonly used in the mid-twentieth century is now experiencing serious corrosion that requires replacement. Third, leaks are a common repair and often do not require repining. If you are experiencing multiple leaks however, it may be time to start considering repiping.
