Even the most beautiful, well-built, and tastefully decorated homes are uncomfortable or downright unpleasant to live in when they have subpar water. And in most cases, poor water quality is caused by old, cheap, corroded, leaky, or broken pipes.
Bad water affects almost every aspect of life in your home. It makes your clothes come out of the wash looking dingy and drab, it stains your dishes and leaves them feeling slimy, it’s harsh on your skin and hair when you shower, it leaves stains in your showers, tubs, and toilets, and it tastes bad when you drink it from your faucets and taps.
Repiping Is the Only Way to Get Crisp, Clean Water in Your Home
There are many band-aid solutions to bad water, but unless you address the root cause of the problem, the issue will always come back. And eventually, bad pipes will completely burst, causing catastrophic damage to your home that can cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair.
Repiping is the only way to truly get peace of mind when it comes to poor quality water, but many people are hesitant to do it because they’ve heard misleading things about. We’re here to dispel some of the most common myths about this essential home improvement investment.
Don’t Believe These Myths about Repiping!
Many companies offer repiping services, and you may have heard stories about the process from others. It can be difficult to determine what’s accurate and what’s an exaggeration or downright falsehood. We’ve completed many repiping projects over the years, and we’re here to set the record straight by disproving these common myths:
Repiping takes weeks—Removing pipes leading to and throughout your home and replacing them with new ones seems like an extremely time-consuming and labor-intensive job, right? Surely it takes weeks! Wrong! At Aqueduct Plumbing Company, we can repipe a 1 story, 2 bath home in a single day! Larger homes can also be completed with a very short turnaround, which means you get back to your life faster and with crisper, cleaner water than ever before.
Repiping is too expensive—Repiping is often cheaper than replacing an HVAC unit. But unlike getting a new air conditioner, repiping can save your home from catastrophic damage, especially if your pipes are in danger of bursting. In addition, it can increase the value of your home, especially when the replacement pipes are built with high-quality materials like pex, copper, CPVC, and others which are designed to last for many decades.
Repiping isn’t necessary—Simply put, if you notice that your water tastes off, looks cloudy, or makes your clothes and dishes smell strange, you almost certainly need your pipes replaced. To make matters worse, the symptoms of bad pipes only get more noticeable over time. Replacing small sections of pipes may temporarily address the problem, but they won’t solve it. To have truly clean water flowing throughout your home, you need new pipes.
Repiping must be done frequently—Repiping is almost an inevitability for homes built by cut-rate contractors and builders, but after we’ve worked on your home, you don’t have to worry about it for decades. That’s because builders use cheap components and materials wherever possible, including pipes. Inexpensive pipes work okay for a few years, but they quickly corrode, degrade, and even break. Our high-quality pipes are designed to be reliable for decades.
Repiping is only necessary when problems are obvious—While repiping should certainly be done when water quality has noticeably suffered, or when pipes are clearly stressed or damaged, it’s often necessary even when you least suspect it. If you notice even one or two symptoms of bad water—or if your home simply 15 years old or older, there’s a good chance it needs to be repiped.
Repiping can be a DIY project—Never attempt to repipe your home by yourself, even if you have previous plumbing or contracting experience! Repiping is a job that should only be done by professionals. At Aqueduct Plumbing Company, we have repiped countless homes, and we know exactly how to do the job fast, on time, and right the first time. Mistakes during a repiping job, especially by a homeowner, can result in serious damage and even more expensive repairs.
