Reliable Repipe Solutions
Repiping a home is a significant investment and typically involves replacing all or part of the plumbing system. Here are some signs that you may need to repipe your home:
- Consistent leaks: If you are experiencing frequent leaks, despite having them repaired, it may be an indication that the pipes are deteriorating and need to be replaced.
- Discolored water: If you notice brown or rust-colored water coming out of your faucets, it may be a sign that your pipes are corroded and need to be replaced.
- Low water pressure: If you are experiencing low water pressure throughout your home, it may be due to corroded or obstructed pipes that need to be replaced.
- Age of pipes: If your pipes are older than 50 years, they may be reaching the end of their lifespan and may need to be replaced.
- Strange sounds: If you hear strange noises, such as rattling or banging, coming from your pipes, it may be an indication of loose or damaged pipes that need to be replaced.
If you are experiencing any of these signs, it is important to consult with a licensed plumber like Mercy Plumbing to assess the condition of your pipes and determine if repiping is necessary. Repiping your home can improve the overall safety, efficiency, and reliability of your plumbing system.

Types of Residential Piping
There are several types of residential piping, including:
- Copper piping: Copper piping is a popular choice for residential plumbing due to its durability, resistance to corrosion, and ability to handle high temperatures and pressures. It is also relatively easy to install and has a long lifespan.
- PEX piping: PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) piping is a flexible plastic tubing that is becoming increasingly popular in residential plumbing due to its ease of installation, resistance to freezing and bursting, and affordability.
- PVC piping: PVC (polyvinyl chloride) piping is commonly used for drain, waste, and vent (DWV) systems and for outdoor irrigation systems. It is lightweight, easy to install, and resistant to corrosion and chemicals.
- Galvanized steel piping: Galvanized steel piping was commonly used in older homes, but it has largely been replaced by newer, more durable materials. Galvanized steel pipes can corrode over time, which can lead to leaks and other plumbing issues.
- Cast iron piping: Cast iron piping is another older material that is still found in some homes. It is durable and can withstand high temperatures and pressures, but it is also heavy and difficult to install.
Each type of piping has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of piping material will depend on factors such as the type of plumbing system, the climate, the age of the home, and the homeowner’s budget. It is important to consult with a licensed plumber to determine the best type of piping for your specific needs.
Why does steel pipe need to be replaced?
Older homes were piped with galvanized steel pipes. This was the standard. Over time, these pipes get corroded and rusted typically leading to the pipes bursting or clogging. Galvanized steel pipes are no longer the standard. New technologies have created other alternatives that are better suited to newer homes and more sustainable. These include copper and PEX pipes as well as PVC pipes. These alternative have pros and cons like anything else. The experts at Mercy Plumbing can help you decide which option best fits your lifestyle and budget.
