Signs You Need a Whole House Repipe

Home repiping is a big deal, which is why homeowners shouldn’t ignore the signs that it needs to be done. Recognizing the signs of pipes that need to be replaced can save you from water damage, health risks and more. Here are a few signs to help you determine if whole-house repiping is in order.

Old or Hazardous Pipes

A pipe system’s lifespan varies depending on material and climate, but a good estimate is to replace your pipes if they are over 50 years old. Plumbing materials have changed since then, and we now know that galvanized pipes rust on the inside after several decades. If you still have galvanized pipes, they could be posing a serious risk to your health and should be replaced.

Corrosion is Visible

When you can see corrosion on your pipes, it means the structural integrity of the entire system is most likely compromised. If you inspect your home’s pipes and can see the following signs of corrosion, your pipes are more likely to leak (they might be already) and should be replaced immediately:

  • Discoloration
  • Stains
  • Flaking
  • Rust
  • Small indentations in the pipe

Leaking Pipes

When a pipe springs a leak, patching seems like the best solution. However, all the pipes in your home are made of the same material and could be close to leaking as well. Replacing one leaky pipe may be the right choice in some cases, but consider the state of the entire pipe system when making the decision. Sometimes, a whole-home repipe is the safest, most cost-effective option.

Water Quality is Questionable

One of the most important signs that your pipes need to be replaced is if the quality of your home’s water is compromised. If your water is discolored with a yellowish or rust-colored tint, you need to plan for repiping as soon as possible. Similarly, water that tastes or smells bad is a sure sign that something is wrong.

When it comes to the integrity of your home’s plumbing, waiting is never a good option. If you notice any of these signs that you need repiping, contact the expert plumbers at Parker & Sons Plumbing today.

Very Knowledgeable

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Stacey C.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Brad B.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
