Cracks, Clogs, Leaks | Re-piping

When the pipes in your house need repair or replacing, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

You’ve been training for weeks to take part in the annual bike ride on the Withalcoochee State Trail. One of the joys of training is when you get home all hot and sweaty and jump in a cool shower. It’s really energizing. But recently. showers, baths and anything to do with water around your house has become a touchy issue. That’s because your pipes have been clogging and leaking. You think you might have to re-pipe the plumbing because your house is older.

You’re right. If your pipes are old, it might be time to replace or otherwise repair them.

Depending on the age of your home and the water lines running to it, pipes made from bygone materials can be major sources for clogs and leaks,” the moneypit.com says. “Old terra cotta waste lines can become cracked and invaded by roots, and steel pipes are prone to internal rusting that can create quite a buildup, eventually bursting or reducing water pressure to unacceptable levels.”

There are two possible solutions, according to themoneypit: “Relining, where damaged pipes are left in place but lined with a fiberglass reinforced epoxy, and: pipe bursting, in which a specially designed machine pulls a replacement pipe through the old pipe, splitting the old pipe apart to make room for the new.

As for steel plumbing pipes, take every opportunity to replace them with contemporary materials. The main running from your home to the street, horizontal pipes running through the crawl space, and pipes leading to bathrooms should be at the top of your replacement list, and sectional upgrades can be done anytime you’re making a home repair that involves opening floors or walls.”
