WHY REPIPE?

As most homeowners i’m sure you’ve asked yourself one time or another, What is a Repipe?

Why would people pay north of $6000 for a pipe “renovation.”

Well, the answer to that question is quite simple. Repiping your home will SAVE you money. If you’re reading this blog it’s because you want to educate yourself on how to proceed after you’ve found a consistent leak in your home. We can offer the only feasible remedy for such a problem. Whether you live on a newer or older home, we can help you with any repipe needs.

WHAT IS A REPIPE?

A repipe is essentially replacing ALL of your clean/incoming potable water plumbing lines. Your home has a pressurized system which is how you can shower, do dishes and laundry without needing to pump the water from a standalone water well. This pressurized plumbing system also leads to most water damage/mold issues in most of southern California.

WHAT IS NEXT?

By the second or third leak in your home your insurance company has given you an ultimatum. Either, repipe your home or you’ll be DROPPED from your insurance, and it’ll be extremely difficult to find an affordable rate shortly thereafter. The first leak may have been resolved by a “Re-route” which is simply relocating the damage pipe to a different location. The only problem with this solution is that it’s just ONE line. In an average 1,500 SQ. FT. residential home, there are around 10-15 lines in the slab or under the house. The Re-route can cost anywhere between $1,500-$2,500. Simply put, make the math. A repipe is EXTREMELY affordable in comparison to a REPAIR.

The Repipe consists of a 3-5 day process with around 65-90 holes throughout your home (single story homes are about half that). We remove most of the old pipes and find the shortest path for the new plumbing system to be installed. We take into consideration the time you will wait for hot water delivery and plan our system with multiple factors in mind. There shouldn’t be a reason why the new plumbing system would lack the best possible pressure for your area. We can install either Copper Type “L” which comes with a LIFETIME WARRANTY on labor and a 50-year LIMITED WARRANTY on parts, or PEX Grade “A” which comes with a LIFETIME WARRANTY on labor and LIFETIME WARRANTY on parts. Either product you decide to choose will certainly meet your expectations and ultimately solve the problem.

CONCLUSION

We at PipEase can provide you with the best solution of all. A PIECE OF MIND. With our services we can guarantee you will go to sleep comfortably at night knowing that your pipes will never be an issue again and we throw in a LIFETIME GUARANTEE to make it extra special.
