The Difference Between Repipes and Reroutes
There are two essential plumbing services that can breathe new life into your home’s water system: repipes and reroutes. If you’ve ever wondered what these terms mean and how they can benefit your plumbing, you’re in the right place.
A repipe is like giving your plumbing system a fresh start. Over time, pipes can deteriorate due to corrosion, mineral buildup, or age. This can lead to leaks, reduced water pressure, and even contamination. A repipe involves replacing the entire network of pipes in your home with brand-new ones. This comprehensive approach ensures that you have a modern, efficient, and leak-free plumbing system.
When Might You Need a Repipe?
Frequent Leaks: If you find yourself constantly fixing leaks, a repipe might be the long-term solution you need.
Low Water Pressure: Outdated pipes can restrict water flow, causing reduced pressure in your faucets and showers.
Visible Corrosion: If your pipes show signs of rust or corrosion, it’s a clear indication that they’re nearing the end of their lifespan.
Water Discoloration: Brown or discolored water could be a sign of internal corrosion, signaling the need for new pipes.
Rerouting is a strategic solution to address specific issues in your plumbing system. Rather than replacing all the pipes, rerouting involves redirecting the flow of water to avoid problem areas. For example, if you have a section of pipes that frequently clogs or leaks, a reroute can bypass that trouble spot, ensuring a smoother water flow and minimizing disruptions.
When Might You Need a Reroute?
Localized Issues: If most of your plumbing is in good condition but certain sections are causing trouble, rerouting can be a cost-effective fix.
Avoiding Obstacles: Rerouting can help work around obstacles like structural elements or other utilities that make traditional repiping challenging.
