It’s time to consider a house re-piping when:
- The water flow is low. This is usually a problem caused by
corroded galvanized pipes where the rust on the metal reduces the diameter of the pipes.
- You have constant problems with leaks from different fixtures
- The pipes burst, putting the house foundation in danger.
- The water is rusty, causing health risks and coloring your
laundry, bathroom and toilet.
- You want to improve your home with an investment that would only
bring you benefits whether you intend to sell the property or improve the quality of life for your
Some of those issues may be solved with partially re-piping but, as always, the
temporary solution turns out to be much more expensive in the end. The old galvanized (fresh water) or cast iron
(sewer) pipes are compatible with the new PEX (water) or PVC (sewer) pipes but you will soon realize your
investment was wasted on a lost cause as the old ones will continue to create problems as time goes on. The
plumbing specialists from Carolina Plumbing Pros are working with
every possible size and standards of pipes (PEX and copper) and will recommend
you the best solution depending on the number of fixtures and family members in your household.
How long would it take?
A whole house re-piping usually takes 1-5 working days, depending on the house and the type of
pipes you choose (copper might take a little longer).
Do we need to leave the house during this time?
No. You can keep using the house and have water every evening after the working process for the
day is over.
Copper or PEX pipes?
The copper pipes are approx. 3 times more costly than the PEX ones, but have their advantages.
Carolina Plumbing Pros is working well with both types.
Who is fixing the walls after the re-piping?
We are. Carolina Plumbing Pros includes this in the service so you can be sure that we
won’t leave any mess behind us. The holes used for access will be fixed after the
re-piping is approved by a county inspector.
How can I be sure of the quality of work?
Always choose a company with all necessary licenses from the State. Without the proper licenses,
permit can not be pulled an inspection will not be performed. Without these inspections, you can never be sure
that the work is done properly. The house re-piping is not a small investment so you should rely only on
experienced and fully licensed plumbing technicians such as Carolina
