Whole House Repiping Services
Does your home have old pipes or needs repiping?
Dealing with pipes may be risky, as some old pipes can cause flooding and sever water damages.
It will be necessary to perform a detailed assessment before repiping to establish the amount of damage, and the proprietor and plumber should create a plan about what will be done.
Why is repiping important?
Your home’s repiping system is one of the most important systems in your entire house. It’s responsible for bringing fresh water into your home and getting rid of wastewater.
Making sure that your repiping system remains in good repair is one of the smartest things to do to make sure that your water system is in good condition. One of the best ways to do this is by repiping your home or business’s plumbing system.
Repiping is the process of replacing the old, worn-out pipes in your home with new, high-quality pipes.
Risks from old pipes
When it comes to water pipes, old isn’t always better. In fact, in some cases, it can be downright dangerous. That’s because old pipes are often made from materials that corrode and leach harmful chemicals into the water supply.
Lead, for example, is a known toxin that can cause all sorts of health problems, from cancer to learning disabilities.
Water pipes installed in homes before the mid-1980s may contain lead.
Lead can cause health problems, including brain damage, especially in young children. Pipes that are corroded or have been disturbed (by digging, for example) are more likely to release lead into the water.
Even low levels of lead can be harmful. If you have an old home with lead pipes, you should take steps to reduce your family’s exposure to lead in drinking water.

What pipes do our repiping services in Georgia offer
PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes are a very popular choice for sinks, toilet, showers and drain lines. They are made of plastic, and are an ideal solution, as the water will be protected from rust and corrosion.
PVC Pipes are very well known for lasting longer than other types of pipes, and can handle high water pressures. They can also be used for the main water supply line in your home, which makes it a better option than the traditional galvanized steel pipes.
PEX pipes are polyethylene cross-linked pipes, which are the most affordable plastic solution for water supply lines. It’s also one of the greatest choices for preventing rust and corrosion, with a similar lifetime like PVC pipes.
PEX Pipes can also be installed in your ceilings, basements, and even crawl spaces. These pipes can handle high water pressures, and will withstand any kind of danger.
And since PEX pipes are cross-linked, you will see them in different coloring, which will indicate the pipes for hot and cold water.
However, installing PEX pipes will need to be installed by a professional plumbing company in Georgia. We can handle such issues, and give you a cost-affordable solution.
ABS Pipes (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) are similar to PVC and PEX pipes, which are easier to be identified due to the black colors they have. The ABS pipes are a very good choice and can withstand cold temperatures.
The best ways to install ABS pipes are a great solution for vents and drain lines, and can also withstand high water pressures.
A downside to ABS pipes is that they can be noisier than other types of pipes. If you don’t have good home isolations and thicker walls, the noise from the pipes will be heard, which may be a disturbance.
Copper pipes were one of the oldest and most modern in the plumbing industry for decades. These pipes can last for more than 50 years, and were the main solution for sinks, showers, tubs, fixtures, and drain systems for old homes.
They are corrosion-resistant, and can fully protect the quality of water in your home.
However, copper pipes are heavier than other types of pipes, but they can last for a longer time, and could be suitable for any kind of water system.
Cast Iron and Galvanized Steel Pipes
Cast Iron and Galvanized steel pipes are one of the oldest solutions for water systems, which were mainly used in the early years of the 20th century. You can still find homes which use them, and that’s for a reason.
Cast Iron and Galvanized Steel Pipes have been known for their durability and usage in water distribution systems.
Cast Iron pipes were mostly used for sewer pipes, or drainage systems, which gained a large popularity and made them a very affordable choice.
However, the cast iron pipes are prone to rust and corrosion, which will affect the ability for clean water to be distributed.
Due to the issue that cast and galvanized Iron pipes hold, many homeowners are switching to PEX or PVC pipes, which makes it the best solution for maintaining a clean water system.
Should you Repipe with Copper or Pex
When one of our plumbers determines that your issue is coming from your piping, the next important step is to consider whether copper or PEX pipes will be required for the job.
Most houses in Georgia are still set with Copper pipes, costing homeowners huge sums for water usage, and heating.
However, with our cost-efficient solutions of using PEX pipes for house repiping, your home will withstand higher temperatures, and lower your overall bills.
