When you need your drain pipes replaced, our professionals conduct a service called repiping—when an old or faulty length of pipe in your home is replaced with a new one. In many cases, you may only need to have a single length of pipe or a section replaced, however whole-house repiping is also sometimes necessary.
Before you can contact our professionals to conduct this service though, you’d have to know that you have a need for it. Detecting plumbing problems within your home can be tricky—particularly because your plumbing is hidden almost entirely out of sight.

Rust Colored Water
Have you noticed rust colored water? If this is only occurring when you are running hot water, then your water heater may be having issues. However if it’s happening whether the water is hot or cold, then what’s happening is flakes of rust and corrosion are coming off the interior of your pipes and entering your home’s plumbing system.
Leaks can often be professional sealed. But if they keep cropping up in the same length of pipe despite numerous efforts to fix the said pipe, then you are most likely dealing with something that needs to be replaced. Additionally, if you’ve noticed visible corrosion or rust then a leak is probably soon to follow.
Nowadays, lead piping is not allowed in residential constructed due to the health risk that they pose. However, if you live in an older home, then you might still have lead pipes in your system, that require immediate replacement.
