Repiping is the process of replacing worn existing pipes with new. Repiping will improve the safety and quality of your home’s water supply, and can prevent severe structural damage due to leaks, rot and mold. When comparing the cost of replacement against the cost of potential damage, and the health risks from mold, repiping is the cost effective choice.
Leaks and High Water Bills
A higher than normal water bill is often the first indication when you have a plumbing leak. Repetitive leaks may be a sign of aging pipe material that has worn thin, is corroded, is constructed of faulty pipe material or poorly installed. Hidden leaks can cause severe damage to your home, and its foundation. If you have a high water bill without an explanation, contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber for water line repair in Fort Worth. Repiping can prevent further damage from occurring in your home.
Low Water Pressure
When water pressure is low, showering is difficult. A noticeable change in water pressure may indicate a leak. You can check for large leaks at the water meter. Ensure no water is in use during the test. Next, write the reading down, and recheck it in 30 minutes. If the numbers have changed, you have a leak. Other potential causes of low water pressure are clogged, corroded piping, and a leak on the municipal main supply.
