A repipe is when new hot and cold water pipes are installed inside your home to replace the existing copper or galvanized pipes already there.
When copper and galvanized pipes begin to fail and leak,it usually means that there will be more leaks in the coming. Finding and repairing each leak can be costly, and exasperating. In the long run, it ma be less expensive to simply repipe, removing the risk of leaks causing damage to your home. Call Billy the Sunshine Plumber to see if a repipe is your most efficient solution.
You can expect the entire process to take approximately 3 days. We break our repipe into three parts to make is a convenient for you as possible.
- The actual repiping requires a permit from the city, and will take 1 to 2 days, depending on the size of your home.
- Afterwards, there will be a city inspection to ensure everything is up to code.
- Once the inspection is passed, we will patch all drywall holes made to install the new piping.
