How Repiping Can Save Your Plumbing and Sanity

How Repiping Can Save Your Plumbing and Sanity

RepipingOld homes are great, with a charm all their own. They offer a glimpse of what life was like “back in the day.” But old homes can also present maddening problems, especially with plumbing. If your pipes are deteriorating due to age or some other reason, repiping may be the best way to not only restore your water flow but your peace of mind as well. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Bay Area, we can take care of the frustrating issues you are experiencing. Let’s explore how repiping can save your plumbing and sanity.

How It Works

Repiping uses advanced technology to basically build a “pipe within a pipe.” Extremely strong resins and other products are used to take the place of your existing pipes so that water can flow freely. Thanks to sophisticated techniques, this service usually does not require extensive excavation of landscaping, driveways and walkways.

Signs You May Need Our Help

There are a lot of issues that will signify you should seriously consider calling us for repiping services. Here are just a few of the most common:

  • Low water pressure – This is usually the first indication you have a significant issue. As galvanized pipes age they develop corrosion. This can restrict water flow and also lead to damaging leaks.
  • Rust-colored water – If your water looks strange, that’s probably because corrosion has built up within your pipes. Nobody wants to take a shower with yellow water, and they especially don’t want to use it for cooking or drinking. Call a San Jose plumber immediately if you have this problem.
  • Scalding water – This is not only an irritating issue, it can also be downright dangerous. If you all of a sudden get an unpleasant surprise when you’re taking a shower and someone flushes the toilet in another bathroom, this is another sign of corrosion.
