Repiping gives you great water pressure throughout your home and improves the delivery of hot water to the fixtures. Whether you use copper or the new PEX piping our plumbers will make sure you get the right ‘fit’.
The water lines in most homes, especially older homes, consist of galvanized piping which will rust and deteriorate in time. Rust builds up inside the pipes, restricting the flow of water and causing the added build-up of putrid gunk and slime throughout the system. The water pressure in the main lines, at the street level, may be fine but as the water enters the property and moves through the house, the clogged pipes reduce the volume of water that can get through to the fixtures. The result is low water pressure in the sinks, shower, washer, yard sprinklers, etc., leading to annoying situations such as being scalded or frozen in the shower when someone flushes the toilet or uses the water in another part of the house. As the rust and deterioration factors worsen, the water can become dirty, foul-smelling and unfit to drink. Rust spots may turn up on freshly washed clothes and linen. Hidden leaks can develop inside the walls, in the attic and under the house, running the risk of major damage to the home.
At CJ’s Plumbing & Rooter Services we specialize in replacing old, galvanized piping with copper piping. Copper piping does not rust and will not develop the problems of galvanized piping. CJ’s Plumbing & Rooter Service crews will keep your home as neat and clean as possible during the work and they will protect the floors and clean the house of debris each day before leaving.
What is PEX?
PEX is an acronym for crosslinked polyethylene. It is a flexible, durable, proven piping product that has been used in plumbing systems for more than 20 years. PEX tubing won’t pit, scale or corrode and, because of its flexibility, it also offers potential freeze-damage protection.
More about PEX repiping
Plumbing systems feature PEX-a tubing, which is considered the superior PEX tubing manufacturing method in the industry. PEX-a is the most flexible of all PEX types, and because of its shape and thermal memory; it can use ProPEX expansion fittings which are the only fitting system that actually gets stronger over time – making it highly leak resistant.
When we’re done, you will be pleasantly surprised at the difference new copper piping will make in your home. It will be the end of the discomfort, inconvenience, aggravation and deterioration caused by galvanized steel water piping and leaks. You will have an operational copper water piping system that adds value to your home and delivers consistent, trouble-free operation.
