The plumbing system is basically the arteries of the home, with a series of pipes transporting fresh water in and wastewater out. Just like the arteries in our bodies, the pipes in our homes need to be taken care of and maintained for everything inside our homes to run smoothly.
Fortunately, unlike the arteries in our bodies, when the plumbing systems in our homes begin to fail, it’s entirely possible to replace every pipe and give your home a plumbing system that will last well into the next century.
Here at Raptor Rooter & Plumbing, we’ve made it our mission to do everything possible to provide our customers access to reliable, trustworthy plumbing services. When the time comes and you need a whole-home repiping company, we want you to have no doubts when choosing us for your Spokane repiping services.
With plumbing systems being so extensive, it can be difficult to feel confident in the decision to repipe your entire home when you are unsure whether a few simple repairs would do the job.
The professionals here at Raptor Rooter understand your concerns and strive to do everything we can to make your worries go extinct. We never recommend a repipe service if it’s not absolutely necessary, and we always make our recommendation clear and transparent.
While every situation will need the eyes of a trained professional, there are a few signs that every homeowner can take note of that can indicate the need for whole-home pipe replacement. If you notice these symptoms in your home, it’s time to call on the plumbers at Raptor!
Most of the time, something as simple as a leak is an easy fix. However, as plumbing systems age and pipes get older, leaks are likely going to become more frequent. Eventually, keeping up with aging pipes that seem eager to constantly spring leaks is going to turn into a job of its own.
The leaking issue will hit a point of diminishing returns, and it will make more sense to replace all of the pipes rather than continue to plug the faults of an aging system.
Several symptoms caused by aging pipes can result in low water pressure. Unseen leaks, corrosion and clogs can contribute to lower pressure by affecting the normal flow of water. Isolated, any of these issues is a simple fix and may not impact your pressure much. Still, an aging system with many issues contributing to low pressure may warrant total replacement.
For many reasons, the color of your tap water can change seemingly overnight. Air trapped in the pipes can make your water look cloudy or white. If sediment collects in the pipes, it can change the water to brown or gray. The most common reason for discolored water is due to pipe corrosion. No matter the cause, our team is ready to help banish questionable water from your home!
If you notice your plumbing system starting to make more noise than it used to, it could be a sign that the need for replacement is approaching. Rattling, hissing and banging can be a sign that your pipes are essentially coming apart and need to be replaced.
It’s always worth considering pipe replacement if you are having other major work done on your home anyway. Much of the cost associated with whole-home pipe replacement has to do with construction costs associated with taking out the old pipes. Replacing your pipes at the same time you redo your floors has the potential to be a “two Dodo birds with one stone” situation that could save you a lot of money in the long run.
The lifespan of your average plumbing pipes can vary depending on a lot of factors such as:
While pipes can be some of the most long-lived components in your home, almost all types of piping will start showing signs of needing to be replaced after around 40 years. Spokane houses built from 1990-2005 were often built with CPVC piping. After a while, this material becomes brittle and the pipes can shatter. Our team is happy to work with you to replace your old CPVC piping.
