When it comes to your home, one of the most important elements is the plumbing and piping fixtures. However, this is usually out of sight and out of mind.
In fact, you probably do not even look at the plumbing or worry about it unless there is some sort of a problem with it.
All of this causes all sorts of problems later on down the line if you do not do anything with the plumbing and you just wait for a problem to come up.
At other times, your plumbing system may start to fail due to age, which means you need to utilize a service known as repiping. This is something done that replaces all of the piping inside of the home.
Naturally it probably is not on the top of your to-do list, but it can potentially save you tens of thousands of dollars in home damage. You just need to know a bit more about it.
How Do I Know If I Need Repiping Job or a Pipe Repair Job?
For starters, there is a major difference between a pipe repair and a repiping. You need the plumber to come in and look over the entire plumbing system. You may just have an isolated problem with the plumbing, which means you need just the specific area replaced, which is always a good thing.
However, having the plumber inspect the entire plumbing system inside of the home is beneficial as it can help you locate possible problems in the plumbing and help you avoid expensive repairs later on down the road. Repiping is far more common in older houses due to the age of the pipes.
Will This Affect My Daily Home Routine?
Chances are it is going to. Granted, it does depend on the extent of the repiping and what your morning routine is, but in order to remove all of the pipes the water must be turned off to the house.
Now, some areas can be sectioned off so you can still use other drains and plumbing in the home, but chances are it is going to interrupt your daily routine.
How Long Does a Repiping Job Take?
The length of time can vary depending on your home, but for the most part, you do need to have certain elements removed and replaced, which means it can take several days if not well over a week for the entire job.
