The age of your home is going to drastically affect plumbing. The older your home is, the older your plumbing is. You may have very old pipes that have gone through a lot of abuse over the years. Depending on the material of the pipes, they may be starting the come apart at the joints or experiencing small cracks and fissures.
As water begins to slowly drip out of your pipes, the water will end up behind the scenes. You may have various forms of water damage behind your walls because of slow drips coming out of the pipes. If you continue to let this go on, you may also experience warped walls, mold, mildew and a variety of other problems.
Repiping may be the only option for you to overcome these problems. It’s a good idea to have Fischer Plumbing come and walk your property. We can diagnose any piping problems to see if you are in need of new pipes. The process will then take about 3 days if you decide to move forward with the project.
There are plumbing and sewage pipes that may need to be replaced in your home. PVC and other materials are being used today that weren’t available years ago. By updating to these modern materials, you can save yourself a lot of problems down the road.
For example, copper pipes aren’t the best option for your home anymore. These are costly and not very eco-friendly. You can actually sell the copper pipes and use the money to pay for better pipes in your home. With new pipes, you will experience a better flow of water, which is also more cost effective.
For your sewage pipes, you may have clay pipes. These are very susceptible to root damage as well as cracking because of the change in ground temperature. If you want to avoid the collapse of your sewage system, repiping can be the best solution for you. Fischer Plumbing professionals can come out, diagnose the problem and provide you with a quote if it is found that you are in fact in need of repiping services.
One of the last things you want to do is jeopardize the integrity of your plumbing system. This is the system responsible for carrying water to and from your house. If you have a glitch in the system, the water may drip into the walls or you may not get any water at all. These can turn into very costly problems if you don’t repipe when you’re supposed to. If you don’t know how old your pipes are or you know they are more than 20 years old, it can be advantageous to place a call. You may or may not need new pipes but you’ll never know unless someone comes out to look at them.
