Be on the lookout for the following:
- Poor water pressure. Old, failing pipes are not efficient when it comes to delivering water to your faucets. If you have low water pressure throughout your home, it may be because your pipes need to be replaced.
- Banging pipes. Have you noticed a loud banging noise when you turn on your water? This is called a "water hammer," and if left unchecked, it could actually damage your pipes.
- Discolored water. Have you noticed a brownish tinge to your water, or have you seen actual flecks of rust in it? That rust is coming from the insides of your pipes. Corrosion means that your pipe walls are thinner, weaker, and more susceptible to leaks and breaks.
- Moisture. If you're noticing dampness on your drywall, underneath your cabinets, or anywhere else where water should not be present, that's a sign that you have a leak coming from one of your pipes.
- Mold and mildew. Mold growth is another telltale sign of a plumbing leak. If you smell a mildewy odor or actually see mold growing, don't wait to call a plumber, because the problem will only get worse the longer you wait.
- High water bill. If you're paying a lot more than normal for your water, it could be because water is leaking somewhere. Hire a professional with the right equipment to identify the source of the leak, whether it's coming from a pinhole leak in a wall pipe or a broken water line beneath your slab foundation.
Choosing the Right Material for Your Whole-House Repipe
Choosing the right material for a whole-house repipe is crucial for the long-term durability and efficiency of your plumbing system. Here are some factors to consider when making your decision:
- Budget: Different materials come with varying costs. Consider your budget and balance it with the quality and benefits of the materials available.
- Local building codes: Your plumber will help you select a pipe material that complies with local plumbing codes and regulations. Some areas may have restrictions on certain materials.
- Material characteristics: Copper is durable, resistant to corrosion, and has a long lifespan. It's a traditional choice but can be more expensive. PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) is flexible, easy to install, and generally cost-effective. It's resistant to corrosion but may not be suitable for outdoor use or high-temperature applications. CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) is affordable, easy to install, and corrosion-resistant. However, it may not be suitable for very hot water applications.
- Water quality: Your plumber will take into consideration the mineral content and pH level of your water. Some materials may react differently to certain water conditions, affecting their longevity.
- Installation process: Some materials, like PEX, are easier and quicker to install, which could lead to cost savings on labor.
- Lifespan: Copper tends to have a longer lifespan compared to PEX or CPVC. Consider how long you plan to stay in your home and whether a longer-lasting material is worth the initial investment.
- Expansion and contraction: Some materials, like PEX, have better expansion and contraction properties, making them more resistant to freezing temperatures.
- Noise: Different materials have varying levels of water flow noise. Consider how important noise reduction is for your household.
- Environmental impact: Some materials may have a lower environmental impact than others. Consider the eco-friendliness of the materials you're considering for your repipe.
- Professional advice: Work with your Albright's repiping expert to assess your specific needs, the layout of your home, and to get recommendations based on their expertise.
