If you have an older house, your pipes may run into some severe problems, such as leaks, clogs, and bursting. Even the sturdiest of piping material has a time limit. If repairs are no longer cutting it, you might consider a full-on repiping. Thinking about installing the repipes yourself? Let 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton tell you everything you need to know about this process.

When Should You Get Repipes?

Repipes are expensive and can take as long as a week to accomplish. So, one non-recurring issue with your pipes shouldn't require total replacement. However, these scenarios might:

Your Pipes Are Too Old

As we said earlier, all pipes eventually give out. For instance, copper pipes can last up to 80 years, and brass ones can last for a century. If your home is newly built, you probably won't need repipes anytime soon. However, if yours has been around for some decades, you might need to put "repipes" at the top of your to-do list.

Before purchasing a new home, ask about the age of the pipes. If they're close to their limit, discuss repiping options with the current owner. The aged pipes might still be in reasonably good condition, but it's still best to be ahead of things.

Your Pipes Are Made of the Wrong Material

Copper and brass are great for pipes: strong, sturdy, and safe. That's not the case with two other common piping materials: lead and polybutylene. Although people are thankfully becoming more aware of the dangers of these pipes, we still wanted to emphasize why you should avoid them.

Lead pipes are extremely dangerous, due to the risk of lead poisoning. While they were banned from new building installations through the 1986 Safe Drinking Water Act, many existing lead pipe systems remain in place. Polybutylene pipes were popular for a time until the 90s, but are notorious for bursting quite easily. Don't tempt fate and continue using these inferior and dangerous pipes. Call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton for professional repipes you can trust.

Your Pipes Are Constantly Having Issues

Constant repairs call for replacements. If you're spending hundreds of dollars at a time on pipe repairs, you should rethink your plan. Instead, focus your attention and budget on repipes.

Think about how you've been treating your pipes as well. Follow simple protocols like not flushing the wrong things down the toilet and running your water at a steady trickle during cold weather. Be aware of your pipes' positioning in relation to trees or other plants outside. It's not uncommon for a pipe to get clogged by a tree root growing inside of it.

Relining Isn't Possible

Relining is a process where pipes are repaired through applying a resin-covered tube. Unfortunately, it's not a foolproof method. Before you call for repipes, check first to see if you can try relining. If your pipes are too badly damaged or have morphed to form a "belly," it's probably too late for relining and you should go for repipes. Schedule an inspection with 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton if you're interested in potentially relining your pipes.

Can You Do Repipes Yourself?

If you pride yourself as a DIY expert, repipes could seem like the next great challenge. However, you shouldn't try it unless you have an actual plumbing license and experience. These are the reasons why repiping is best left to the experts.

Dangers

Repiping a home is an extremely dangerous task. That's why you need to hire a plumber who understands all of the necessary safety protocols. Professional plumbers know where to cut through drywall and how to safely remove old pipes and install new one. This isn't something you can learn on the go, and one wrong move could spell disaster.

It's possible you'll need to use a soldering torch to install these pipes, leading to even more potential danger. No matter how careful you, you can't match up with the safety and service of a professional plumbing company. Call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton for safe repiping.

Difficulty

We understand the satisfaction that comes from accomplishing something difficult, but repiping without professional plumbing experience goes beyond difficult. It's just not a good idea, due to the level of expertise required and frustration you'll undoubtedly experience.

The more difficult repipes are for you, the longer it'll take to complete the task. 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton can ensure repiping done in a professional and timely fashion. We also don't charge extra for weekend, holiday, or evening work and are available for 24-hour emergency plumbing assistance.

Cost

Another appeal of DIY is that you can save money on professional services. But that's not a guarantee, especially not if you don't know what you're doing. We don't mean to sound harsh, but it's very likely that attempting your own repipes will result in you having to call a professional plumbing company and other experts to fix additional problems, such as drywall repair technicians.

You'll never be able to install repipes for free, but you can receive great installation without breaking the bank. 1-800-Plumber +Air of Princeton always charges by the project, so you know you're getting a fair, consistent rate no matter how long the job takes to complete.

What to Expect During Repiping

Having repipes installed can be a huge victory for you and your household, but it can also be a bit inconveniencing. These are the scenarios you need to prepare for if you're planning on repiping your home:

Water Shut-off

When pipes are being installed, your water will need to be turned off. Keep this in mind and schedule your repipes for a time when you'll be out of the house. If you work from home or can't otherwise leave, consider a back-up plan, such as drinking bottled water.
