Repiping | Plumber Fort Worth
When a home has continuous plumbing issues, it may be time for repiping. Older homes, those built in the 1970’s and prior, are especially prone to leaks and blockages, primarily due to the use of galvanized pipes. Though they are steel, over time galvanized pipes will clog with rust scale, lime scale and leak. The frightening condition of galvanized pipes is often not known until homeowners call a plumber in Fort Worth for repair. In fact, if homeowners knew the condition of aged galvanized piping’s inner core, they probably would not touch the water, much less drink it.
A repipe is the process of replacing existing pipes with new pipes. It will improve the safety and quality of your home’s water supply, and will potentially prevent catastrophic damage due to leaks, rot and mold.
Unfortunately, leaks may not be the only problem affecting your galvanized pipes; the corrosion galvanized pipe eventually experiences is likely to affect your home’s water quality. Over time, galvanized pipes will rust, sediment builds up in the pipe blocking water flow, contaminating tap water and potentially leaking. Copper pipe is not impervious to the effects of time and hard water, it also will develop leaks. The following signs can indicate your home requires repiping by a plumber in Fort Worth:
Low water pressure throughout the home is an indication of debris buildup and/or corrosion. Once pipes corrode the situation will only become worse with time. Repiping is the only option for worn out, corroded pipes. If low pressure is only affecting one tap, the problem will be in that taps supply line.
Discolored water may indicate corroded and rusty pipes, typically red or brown. Repiping by a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Fort Worth will stop discolored water and contamination from aging and corroded pipes.
Frequent water leaks are a common sign of corroded plumbing. Once corrosion occurs and leaks start they become more numerous as time goes on. As bits of rust and debris are pushed through the pipes and into fixtures, it is possible for damage to occur to faucets and fixtures resulting in leaky faucets.
Age is a factor that will affect the pipe condition. Eventually pipes will wear out and require replacement. Visible aging may be evident by rust on the outside of the piping, visible cracks, and leaks around connections. However, the worst of the damage will be on the inside, as pipes rust from the inside out. Once the pipes in your Fort Worth home has corroded, experiences frequent leaks and/or performs poorly, repiping will be required by a plumber in Fort Worth .

- Repiping protects your health from the potential of dangerous mold caused by leaks.
- Homeowner’s insurance claims for leak damage and/or mold remediation can result in higher insurance premiums or the non-renewal of a homeowner’s insurance policy.
- If you are planning to sell your home in the near future, bad plumbing can be a deal killer two ways. First, the need for a repipe will reduce the home’s appraised value. Next, prospective buyers will buy a different property, or they will want additional money knocked off the listed price to pay for new plumbing, even though the appraisal has already lowered the value due to the need for repiping!
