WHEN IS IT TIME TO REPLACE YOUR PIPES?

How Wisler Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric can help?

Older homes and commercial buildings often have problems with blocked drains and recurring leaking pipes. This happens when galvanized steel pipes age, wear out and leak. If you have had more than one pipe repaired or replaced but are still experiencing leaking issues, you should consider replacing the plumbing throughout your entire plumbing system to correct the problem and prevent further plumbing problems.

It’s probably time to replace the pipes if:

  • Chronic leaking pipes
  • Recurring problems with slow or clogged drains
  • Water that has a bad taste
  • Discolored water

If you have noticed several of these problems, they are probably old pipes that need to be replaced. The only way to be sure is to have your plumbing system inspected by a certified plumber in Roanoke VA.

Whole House Repiping in Roanoke

VA and Surrounding Areas

When corrosion sets in, pipes begin to leak. Leaking pipes lead to health risks and devastating water damage that will rot and ruin your home.

Repiping, your home is the only viable, long-term solution to corroded, leaking pipes and the only way to divert widespread damage.

Repiping Forecasted For Homes Built Prior To The 1970’s.

The evolution of the plumbing industry has taken its toll on older homes. Many of the materials that were popular in the past are now obsolete and wreaking havoc in the homes they were used in.

Repiping is a big job that we don’t take lightly. We minimize the disruption to your home by:

  • Hear the heater turn on but nothing happens?
  • Feel cold air blowing?
  • Is your house just not warming up?
  • Is your house getting too hot?

Heed The Warning Signs

Dripping pipes Expand

Repairing or patching a dripping pipe is a temporary solution to what will become a very big problem. If one pipe has worn thin you can bet that the rest are in a similar condition and they should all be replaced before they inevitably burst.

Discolored Water Expand

Brown tones in your water indicate that your pipes are rusting.

  • First and foremost, rust is a health hazard. Do Not Ingest The Water.
  • Secondly, once pipes begin to rust they will continue to rust. In the long run, rust sediment will clog your pipes, and the components in your water heater, your washing machine, and your dishwasher.

Compelling reasons to repipe your home.

Decreased Water Pressure Expand

Every time hard water runs through your pipes it leaves traces of sediment that settles and takes up permanent residence in your pipes, your dishwasher, your washing machine, and your water heater. Low water pressure is often caused by the sediment build up in your pipes choking off the flow of water. Have us investigate for you.

Damage To A Wall Expand

If a wall or part of your house takes a serious blow, the intense vibrations will affect your pipes. Replacing your pipes when the structural repairs are being done will avert water problems down the road.

Low Water Pressure Expand

Are your pipes big enough? We’ve found that the minimum pipe size stipulated in the Plumbing Code is often too small and restrictive for homes that have high water demands.

Black Mold Expand

Just because you can’t see mold doesn’t mean it isn’t there. The spawn of dampness, black mold is nasty, toxic and dangerous. Symptoms of prolonged exposure can manifest as breathing problems, coughing, sneezing, memory problems, immune system problems, frequent headaches or fatigue, irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, and even nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Never ignore musty mildewy odors. What you can’t see can hurt you. If you can’t find the source of that musty mildew odor you may have leaking, seeping pipes behind dry wall or in other hidden areas of your home. Call us. Mold is invasive and destructive and it must be stopped before serious irreparable damage is done.

Beware Of Obsolete Pipes

Commonly used in sewer piping in homes built in the 1800’s to early 1900’s, clay pipes have a propensity to crack with age. These fractures allow roots, dirt, and the like to invade and eventually clog the sewer line that is sitting below your beautiful lawn.

Made from tarpaper, Organgeburg piping was used in sewer systems built between 1945-1972 and as a matter of course, they are decaying to the point of collapse. If you see indentations in your lawn where your sewer line should be grab your phone and call us!

The piping of choice for many homes built in the 1930’s through to the 1950’s, galvanized piping. Time has determined that galvanized piping rusts, leaving a thick sediment that will eventually choke off the flow of water.

Used in homes built before 1986. Acidic, corrosive, low PH water can leach the lead from pipes and dissolve into the water. Prolonged exposure to lead is a health risk that can damage the nervous system, and lead to other problems including learning disabilities and hearing impairment.

Types of Water Lines

Copper – the downside of this tried and true material is that it will break down and become thin if you have poor water quality or if it’s not installed properly. As it breaks down pinhole leaks will cause damage to your home.

CPVC – a type of plastic, CPVC pipes are a creamy color and often have a yellow line going through them.

Quest Polybutylene is a gray plastic pipe that looks similar to PVC but has a different chemical makeup that did not hold up and as a result, they are no longer being manufactured.

PEX Piping – classified by the manufacturing process and installation methods, there are three types of PEX piping:

PEX-A
PEX-B
PEX-C

NSF Standard 61 approved PEX-A is our number 1 choice because:

  • it won’t breakdown
  • it’s completely safe for
  • it’s backed by a 20-year warranty
  • its fool-proof fittings are the most dependable and resistant to potential leaks

Types of Sewer Lines

Cast iron – extremely durable, cast iron pipes generally have a long life. However, being metal, chemicals dumped down the drain can cause them to corrode and deteriorate.

PVC – due to its durability it’s currently the most commonly used pipe for drainage, irrigation, and other cold water systems

We prefer to use Schedule 40 PVC pipe because it is strong, rigid, and stands up to pressure applications.
