Is your house rattling? Do you have constant leaks or water problems? It might be time to update the house’s pipes. If the house is older than 25 years there’s a good chance the pipes are corroded and are getting clogged up.
There are many benefits to repiping your home including:
- Increase in home value
- Strong water pressure
- Clean and healthy water
- Eliminate water loss
- Improved water delivery
- Lower water-utility bills
When repiping, there are a few options for the best material for each house or building. Most homeowners will have either copper pipes or CPVC pipes.
Most older houses have copper. Copper has been used for years with huge improvements along the way. The solder used to connect the pipes is now made without lead so it is safer to use than in the past. Copper can withstand chewing rodents and will not become brittle for years.
The other option is CPVC, which has many of it’s own unique benefits. It is much less expensive and is easier to install. Additionally, it won’t rust or develop pinholes.
It’s important to keep in mind that you can choose the material for the repipe regardless of the pre-existing pipe. If you have any questions about what would be a good solution for your house, First Quality experts will give honest and trusted expertise.
