When Do You Need Whole-Home Plumbing?
There are many signs and situations that will require you to repipe your home. For example, if your home is older and built before the 60s or 70s, then you more likely need a new plumbing system. Pipes from earlier decades were typically made of galvanized steel, and as time goes on, those pipes begin to corrode easily.
If you are noticing that the

In most situations, the process only takes about 3 to 5 days! This is the general rundown of how the repiping will happen:
Preparation for Repiping
After deciding that repiping is what is sustainably best for your home, the plumber will begin to assess where to start. Usually, they can go room by room so that you do not need to completely vacate. You should begin to cover any and all furniture or belongings you do not want getting dusty or dirty.
Installation of New Pipes
Depending on the age of your home and the access to the pipes, this part might be relatively smooth. If anything arises, the plumber should notify you for future action. Water should only have to be shut off for the duration of repairs during the day. The new pipes will be made of copper or plastic such as PEX or CPVC, which are more durable after corrosion and damage.
After Completion of Repiping
When the plumber is done installing the new pipes in your home, they will begin to patch everything up. Any holes or cuts in your wall will be smoothed out and painted over to look brand new, as well as any mess in the surrounding areas.
Once all your new pipes are installed, you should see a difference immediately in your water pressure, quality, and even your utility bill. With maintenance and care, new piping can last for numerous years. Ask today about Mr. Plumber’s Shield of Protection and how this plan can keep your plumbing running efficiently!
