Repipe San Diego

What does copper repiping involve?
If you live in a home in or around San Diego that has been built more than 30 years ago, there’s a good chance that the water pipes throughout your house are made of a galvanized pipe material. These galvanized pipes will corrode as time goes on and will require repiping to prevent further damage, wear and irreversible pipe material corrosion. Galvanized pipe corrosion in your home can sharply reduce water quality and may even cause health concerns. A copper repipe is the removal or bypass of existing pipes, replaced by brand new, clean copper pipes. The copper pipes used are among the finest quality copper available and is backed up with a lifetime guarantee. Repiping costs vary on your plumbing layout and house size. In most cases, the cost of a complete copper repipe with Repipe Specialists is half of what a local plumber would cost.

What issues should I look out for?
If you experience water pressure drops, rusty colored water, a slab leak appears or you discover leaks or pipe corrosion, it is time for you to repipe your plumbing with new copper pipes. These vital clues are often the early indicators of major pipe corrosion. This may also cause leaks within your house, which can be attributed to mildew or mold in the walls.

What happens after a copper repipe?

As time went on, rust and corrosion have collected inside your old pipes, restricting water flow and lowering pressure. You’ll quickly notice a great improvement in your water quality as well. With copper pipes free of contaminants and corrosion, you’ll see a clear difference in the shower, your dishwasher and your washing machine.
