Copper Repiping

Shower Water Pressure Restored after Copper Repipe from Repipe Specialists.What is a copper repipe?
If your home has been built more than twenty years ago, there’s a higher probability that the water pipes are made of a galvanized pipe material. These galvanized pipes will corrode as time goes on and will require a copper repipe to offset the damage, wear and irreversible pipe material corrosion. Galvanized pipe corrosion in the home can sharply reduce water quality and may even cause health concerns. Copper repiping involves the removal or bypassing of existing pipes, replaced by clean, brand new copper pipes. Copper pipes used are made from the finest quality copper available and has a lifetime quality guarantee. The cost of copper repiping can vary on your home size and plumbing layout. Most commonly, the cost of a full copper repipe with Repipe Specialists is half of what a local plumber will charge.

What issues should I look for?
If you experience a big loss in water pressure, rusty colored water with a metallic taste, a slab leak starts or you discover leaks or pipe corrosion, it may be time to upgrade your plumbing with new copper pipes. Many of these symptoms are often the early indicators of major internal pipe corrosion. This may also cause leaks within your home, which can lead to mildew or mold within your walls.
