4 Signs You Need Glendale Repipe Services

December 23, 2015

For any homeowner who wants to keep his or her home in good working order, it’s important to know when you need Glendale repipe services.

What Is Repiping?

Repiping is a relatively new plumbing technique that’s saved thousands of homeowners lots of cash and stress over the past few years. Before this technique was developed, if you had a leak or a damaged pipe, there was only one solution: expose the plumbing system and repair or replace the pipe in question. This often meant tearing up walls and/or floors or excavating driveways and yards—because there was simply no other way to physically get to the pipes.

Repiping has changed all of that. This technique involves inserting a slightly narrower pipe into the old, damaged one, and then sealing it in place. The only part of the pipe that needs to be accessed is the point where the damage begins. As a result, repairing and maintaining plumbing systems has become considerably less costly and time consuming.

4 Signs You Need Glendale Repipe Services

So how do you know when you need to repipe? In general, there are four things to keep in mind:

  1. You have lead pipes. When you have lead pipes, they can leach lead into the water you consume, which can have damaging effects on your and your family’s health—especially if you have young children.
  2. Your pipe system is old and corroded. Eventually, all pipes wear out. If your water is brown or murky, it’s a sign the pipes are corroding and need to be replaced.
  3. The pipes are leaking. Clearly, any leaks in the pipe system can drive up your water bill and result in water damage to your property.
  4. You have polybutylene pipes. Polybutylene is a form of plastic resin that was used in the 1970s and 80s. However, it’s not very durable, which means it’s prone to wear and tear.

If you notice any of these materials or signs, then call Anthony’s Plumbing right away. We can pinpoint exactly where the problem is in your home’s plumbing system and of course, repair it quickly and cost-effectively.
