What is Repiping and Why is it Important?

A complete repipe and new system involves removing and replacing all the water lines in your home to ensure you have a reliable and efficient plumbing system.

Repiping with all new pipes is critical for several reasons:

  • Health and Safety: Old pipes, especially those made from lead or galvanized steel, can pose serious health risks by leaching toxic substances into your drinking water.

  • Prevent Property Damage: Leaking pipes can cause water damage to your home, including mold growth and structural damage. Repiping can prevent such issues.

  • Increase Home Value: If you plan to sell your home, a house repipe can increase its value as potential buyers often prefer homes without potential issues in the long run.

  • Improve Water Pressure and Quality: Replacing old pipes can significantly improve your water flow and prevent discoloration or bad taste.

How Can I Tell if My Home Needs PEX Home Repipe?

For some homeowners, it helps to understand the history of galvanized steel or lead pipes to identify which homes in Reno may have them.  Galvanized steel pipes became popular as a replacement for lead pipes around the 1930s. These pipes were used extensively until the 1960s, after which copper pipes gained popularity. However, galvanized pipes were still used in some homes built as late as the 1980s.

  • Age of the Pipes: Older homes that still have original plumbing, are likely ready for a repiping job. The average lifespan of most pipes is between 25 and 50 years, depending on the material used.

  • Frequent Leaks: If you're constantly dealing with leaks, pipe bursts, or broken pipes, it could be a sign that your current plumbing system is aging and becoming more vulnerable to leak damage.

  • Discolored Water: Rusty or brownish water is often a sign of corroded pipes.

  • Low Water Pressure: If you've noticed a significant drop in your home's water pressure, it might be due to a buildup of sediment and rust in your pipes.

  • Visible Corrosion: If you can see corrosion on exposed pipes, it's probably happening inside them as well.

  • Lead or Galvanized Pipes: Older homes that have lead or galvanized pipes pose serious health and safety concerns.

 

At Hoffman Plumbing, we understand that not every sign requires a complete repiping or installation. In many cases, a pipe repair can effectively resolve the issue. Our local Reno team of professional plumbers is here to provide expert guidance tailored to your home's specific needs.

 

Given the health risks associated with lead and corroded galvanized pipes, it's crucial to address any concerns promptly. If your pipes are found to be made of these materials, replacing them with safer alternatives like copper or PEX is recommended.  Don't hesitate to reach out to us for a consultation and take advantage of our expertise. We're confident in our ability to deliver the best possible outcome for your plumbing needs.

What is The Issue with Lead or Galvanized Steel Pipes?

There are several neighborhoods in South Reno If you live in an older home with lead or galvanized steel pipes, it is important to have them replaced as soon as possible. There are government programs from the EPAUSDA, and HUD available to help homeowners with the cost of replacement.

  • Lead pipes can corrode and release lead into the water supply. Lead is a toxic metal that can cause serious health problems, including learning and developmental delays in children, reproductive problems, and even death.

  • Galvanized steel pipes can also corrode and release zinc into the water supply. Zinc is not as toxic as lead, but it can still cause health problems, such as headaches, nausea, and vomiting.

 

If your homes piping system has lead or galvanized steel pipes, you should seriously consider a complete house repiping. The risks associated with these materials far outweigh the cost of replacing them with safer, modern alternatives like copper piping or PEX piping.
