Symptoms That Might Mean You Need A Repipe
Repipe vs. Repairing Leaks
Small & minor pipe leaks can be patched with simple repairs. The same goes with clogs and slow draining issues, they are easily cleared, however a band aid is not always the best solution.
When you find your pipes are causing continual problems you know it is time to repipe. Repiping is much more cost effective than continually repairing pipes only to discover the temporary fix has caused extensive damage. Remember your pipes are under pressure, and your water will find other holes in the pipe. Once the band-aid is applied you will increase pressure and other holes will be created. Why do you think there are so many water main breaks in the street? Fix one leak and another shows up!
