Paso Robles Plumber Releases ‘Signs it’s Time to Re-pipe the House’

Re-piping involves replacing hot and cold water supply lines and waste disposal lines from sinks, bathtubs, toilets and any suitable fittings.

Re-routing the house is not something most homeowners think about, but if the house was built before the 1970s, there is a good chance that re-pipe work will be done in the future. Sky Sepulveda, from Quality 1st Plumbing and Sewerage Drain in Paso Robles recently released a report summarizing the signs that it may be time to reintroduce leadership and what the homeowner can expect during the project.

  • One of the first signs that re-routing may be in order is when the plumber is called more and more frequently. Old pipes that often leak or become clogged may mean it’s time to replace them.
  • There’s a good chance any home, or even commercial property, built before 1920 will have lead pipes. Lead can leach into drinking water and it is simply safe to replace lead pipes.
  • Galvanized pipes were once the staple plumbing in homes built before World War II and into the 1960s, although their use dwindled by this time. Galvanized pipes will rust over time.
  • If you are considering remodeling a kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room, you should have the plumbing inspected. A renovation is the ideal time to install new pipes.
  • Any time the building has been damaged by a fire, storm or accident, it is a good idea to have existing pipes inspected as re-laying pipes could be the best repair option. Depending on the damage, the insurance may cover the cost of new pipes.

“Pipe re-laying takes some planning,” said de Paso Robles plumber. Re-piping involves replacing hot and cold water supply lines and waste disposal lines from sinks, bathtubs, toilets and any suitable fittings. The good news is that some re-piping projects can be completed in a few days, but it’s not uncommon for large jobs to take longer.

The length of the project does not have to be a major inconvenience. The water is turned off during the day when the plumbers are at work, but turned back on at the end of the day for family use. The new pipeline network is usually built next to the old system, which remains connected during the work. Ask the plumber about regular chores like running the dishwasher, doing the laundry, or watering the yard.

Always start with an inspection of the current pipework. An experienced plumber like the Paso Robles plumber will conduct a thorough inspection and provide a fair estimate with descriptions of the materials that will be used and how long the project is expected to take.
