When Should I Consider Repiping My Home?

Repiping is an effective way to replace outdated and corroded pipes with modern materials that offer better performance, durability, and longevity. While it is a major undertaking, it may be unavoidable under certain conditions.

Reach out to Santhoff Plumbing for superior water line repiping in Houston if:

  • Your pipes have reached the end of their lifespan. While some pipe materials such as copper can last for many decades with proper maintenance and care, all piping systems have a shelf life. Furthermore, many older piping systems use inferior materials that can deteriorate faster than expected due to age and exposure. In either scenario, replacing aging pipes with modern ones can provide better performance and durability.
  • You are experiencing frequent plumbing issues. Constant clogs, leaks, and low water pressure may indicate underlying issues with your existing piping system that need attention before it gets worse. Discolored water, unusual noises, and unpleasant odors are also major warning signs. In some instances, replacing your pipes altogether may be a more cost-effective solution than attempting multiple repairs on an outdated system.

Why It's Important to Repipe Your Home

Do not put off repiping your Houston home! Pipes past their prime are prone to a plethora of problems. Old pipes may become corroded and clogged with mineral buildup, reducing the water pressure in your house and potentially causing frequent leaks and other plumbing issues. In addition, aging pipes are more susceptible to cracking or bursting under high pressure, which can result in disruptive emergencies that can cause structural damage to your home. 

You can avoid these and other consequences by investing in timely water line repiping in Houston. If you are not sure whether repiping is necessary, our team can evaluate your home’s current piping system and advise on how to proceed. We will always be transparent and never push services your home does not need.

Understanding Pipe Material Options

PVC Pipes

PVC pipes are a popular choice for many homeowners thanks to their versatility, cost-effectiveness, and ease of installation. Compared to other materials such as copper and galvanized steel, PVC pipes are lightweight and flexible, simplifying installation and making them resistant to high water pressure. Another major benefit of PVC pipes is their affordability. They are usually much less expensive than other piping materials, which can make them an attractive option for those on a tight budget. 

Additionally, PVC is resistant to corrosion and chemicals, which can fracture or corrode other pipe materials over time. This makes them ideal for outdoor applications that may be exposed to harsh weather conditions or corrosive agents. They are also blockage-resistant, reducing the likelihood of clogs. PVC pipes do tend to warp when exposed to large quantities of hot water, however, and they have limited sizing options. 

PEX Pipes

PEX piping’s extreme flexibility allows it to bend and flex around corners without the need for additional fittings and fixtures. This means PEX piping can be routed through walls and ceilings with ease, making it a great choice for homes with tight spaces or areas with intricate piping layouts. PEX piping will deteriorate when exposed to UV rays, meaning it cannot be used outside. The use of these pipes has also been banned in some states due to safety concerns, so you should review and understand the possible health risks before committing to this option.

ABS Pipes

ABS piping is another type of plastic material, but it is distinct from PVC and PEX piping due to its increased resistance to cold temperatures. This benefit comes with a significant tradeoff: While ABS piping enjoys a long lifespan, it is nowhere near as flexible as its other plastic counterparts, though it is easy to install in the right situations. You should also be aware that ABS piping does not always effectively insulate the sound of water running within it, meaning you could hear noises from time to time. Like PEX piping, ABS piping does not fare well in sunlight and can warp when exposed to UV rays. 

Copper Pipes

Copper is a corrosion-resistant metal that stands up to high water pressure as well as extreme temperatures and weather conditions. It also boasts an incredible lifespan, often lasting over 50 years with proper installation, maintenance, and care. Copper is nowhere near as flexible as plastic piping options, however, and it tends to be more extensive than popular alternatives. 

Replacing Outdated Cast Iron and Galvanized Steel Pipes

Cast iron and galvanized steel pipes were popular piping materials in the early 20th century, and while they can still be found in many older homes, they are now considered obsolete and should be replaced. Their susceptibility to rust and corrosion tends to outweigh their excellent strength and durability.
