What is a Repipe?

A repipe, re-pipe, or repiping is when a plumber replaces your indoor water distribution system. This typically includes both hot and cold water lines, but doesn't not include drains or sewer lines. A repipe can either cover your entire home or only part of your water delivery system. Additionally, a whole home repipe can be performed in stages, so you don't lose access to water in your entire home during the process.

Plumber repipes with PEX We Are PEX Repiping Specialists

Many people still haven't heard of PEX piping, but it's one of the biggest advancements in the plumbing industry's last 30 years. PEX, or crosslinked polythylene, is an extremely durable, extremely flexible alternative to copper piping. PEX piping installs faster, has lower material costs, and doesn't corrode like copper piping can. PEX can be used with hot water and cold water alike, and actually is a better insulator than copper.

If you're looking for a PEX repiping specialist in Concord, look no further. We use PEX for most of our repipe jobs and pass the savings on to you, so everyone wins. PEX is backed by a 25 year manufacturer warranty, though real world installations can last even longer.


We Use High Grade M Type Copper for Copper Repipes

When the situation calls for copper repiping, or if our clients request it specifically, we will only use high grade type M copper piping. Type M has long been an industry standard which makes it ideal for a variety of applications.



We Know Repiping Forwards and Backwards

Repiping is often as simple as cutting out a bad piece of pipe and replacing it with a new one. Of course, this requires either soldering in the new part or adding couplers to either end, neither of which should be done by anyone but a professional. An improperly repaired pipe can result in everything from poor water pressure and contamination to the leak returning and becoming worse. While most repiping jobs are of the patch and repair variety, some systems need complete overhauls. Buildings with galvanized steel lines that are over 50 years old are likely to be rusting from the inside out. One of the problems with this is that the process of galvanization includes lead. This lead may be leeching into the water supply of anyone with a galvanized steel system. Older homes that were previously repiped with copper piping may also need service because the walls of older copper pipes are much thinner than what we use now. These pipes have a tendency to fail at a much higher rate, especially in areas with significant pressure fluctuation.

Our Concord Plumbing Team Handles Line Upgrades

The other major reason for repiping is that the current system simply won't handle the current water demand. This is often the case when our Concord plumbing team is called in to work on local businesses in the downtown area. When the pipes were first put in, there was nearly as much traffic in the area and the need for water was much smaller. We also find that businesses that take over existing buildings and use them for completely new purposes often need to have piping re-routed to accommodate their needs.
