Don't wait until you start to have a problem or notice leaks! Watch for signs associated with a failing plumbing system, such as rusty water, flakes of material in your water, odd-tasting tap water, or decreased water pressure. A good way to determine if your pipes need replacement is the "Flow Test": turn on multiple faucets in different parts of your home and check for a significant drop in water pressure. If the pressure drop is significant, you have a problem.

Repiping is a process of replacing the supply pipes in a dwelling or business. Repiping is not a temporary fix or replacement of short sections of pipe, but a complete replacement of your supply plumbing system. There are several reasons you may need to repipe your home or business's plumbing. Corrosion of pipes may cause low water pressure, rusty colored water, or leaks. It is important to understand the scope of the project before any work is started. If you notice an isolated leak or a small portion of your existing piping or valves is corroded or cracked, it is quite possibly an indication of a larger problem.
A professional site inspection is critical to a successful repiping process. Standard repiping projects include installation of all new hot and cold domestic water piping from the origination point to all existing faucets. Unless specifically included in the proposal, drain replacement and fixtures are not included.
Repiping.com also offers detailed analysis on the differences between copper and plastic piping, information about tank/tankless water heaters, recirculation systems and water filters, as well as a comprehensive description of the repiping process.
