If you live in an older house or building, you’ve probably encountered a few plumbing issues already. Frequent drain clogs, pipe leaks, and low water pressure are all common problems in homes with aging plumbing systems.
Constant drain issues and leaks may signal the need for repiping. At JMK Plumbing, we help Springboro homeowners enjoy long-term peace of mind with professional whole-home repiping. Give us a call to learn more about this service and find out if this is the right solution for you.
When is Repiping Necessary?
Although plumbing leaks and clogged drains are factored into the decision to repipe, they are not the only problems we take into account. We will need to look at other factors affecting your plumbing system before recommending repiping as a solution.
Do You Have Galvanized Steel Pipes?
Homes built before the 1960s are likely to have galvanized steel water pipes. These were the standard several decades ago, but have proven to be dangerous if they are still in use today. The zinc coating used on galvanized steel pipes (ironically, to prevent rust and corrosion) will have eaten away at your pipes by now.
As a result, galvanized steel plumbing pipes that are still in place today are likely suffering from corrosion and deterioration. They affect the quality of your drinking water and present a risk to the integrity of your home’s foundation. If you have galvanized steel water lines, it’s best to have them repiped as soon as possible.
Are You Dealing With Frequent Plumbing Problems?
A home with weak plumbing overall will experience constant problems such as:
If you are constantly having to call for plumbing repairs, you may need to consider replacing your water lines. A whole-home repipe can help you save on recurring repair costs and give you long-term peace of mind.
What to Expect From Our Repiping Services
Repiping may sound like a messy job, but it doesn’t have to be stressful for you. JMK Plumbing will go over the process with you in detail so you know what to expect before any work begins.
Our plumbers will first carry out a thorough inspection so we have a clear picture of the current state of your plumbing system. This allows us to present you with the most accurate solution. Some homes need a full house repipe while others just need one section replaced. At this point, you can let us know if you would like to update any of your fixtures during the repiping process, such as a new shower installation.
Once we have your approval to move forward with the repiping job, we will obtain a permit from the city and schedule a day to begin repiping.
The process starts by opening your walls to access the pipes. But don’t let this worry you—we will only need to make small openings, enough to remove the old pipes and place in new ones. Your new water lines will be PEX or copper (our team will help you select the right material during the planning stages).
After the job is complete, a city inspection will be scheduled. This will ensure that everything has been carried out to meet local building code. We will return to your home after the inspection to work on covering the openings in your walls.
The entire repiping process may take up to a week, which will include the city inspection and the following repair work. The exact time frame will vary depending on whether we’re repiping the entire property or just a section of it.
If you are struggling with persistent plumbing problems, including leaks and clogs, call JMK Plumbing at (937) 238-8620 to learn more about your options. We provide repiping services throughout Springboro and can help you achieve the peace of mind you need!
