A constant worry for homeowners, who live in older homes, is the plumbing within the home. As pipes age, they slowly break down and run into issues such as leaks. This can be serious for any building, as water damage is a leading cause for total losses. When piping becomes a consistent issue, one of the only solutions is to re-pipe your home. Veterans Plumbing and Air Conditioning offers industry leading re-piping solutions for your entire home.
With decades of experience working in homes throughout the Ft. Lauderdale area,Veterans Plumbing and Air Conditioning has the knowledge and experience needed to re-pipe your home quickly and safely.
We can provide you with all the options and help you identify the pipe that’s right for your home. There are two types of pipe that we currently use for supplying water to fixtures: Copper and CPVC.
Copper is the original plumbing pipe and it is still in wide use today for good reason. When all it is carrying is water, copper will last for decades, even centuries, without needing to be replaced. Because of the high mineral content in Southern Florida, copper pipes are highly recommended. CPVC pipes are plastic. They are breakable and vulnerable to rats if they are installed in attics or walls.
Why is re-piping important?
- Water Quality:When pipes are cracked or worn down it becomes very easy for debris, fungi and other materials to slip in and reduce your water quality. When there is a buildup of rust and other debris, not only does it discolor the water but it also decreases water pressure levels. By having a secure water system, you will be significantly improving the water quality—not to mention you will also be saving thousands of dollars by reducing water consumption!
- Property Value:No one wants to live where there are constant leaks and reoccurring plumbing problems. Even if you do not have an existing problem (or at least that you’re aware of), it is never a bad idea to take precautions, especially because it will increase your property value.
- Old Pipes/Leaks:Leaks are not only expensive but extremely damaging and disruptive for your property and residents. When your pipes are underground it is almost impossible to know when there is a leak. Even the smallest of cracks can be costing you thousands of dollars of every year because of wasted water!
How do you know if your residence or commercial building needs re-piping?
When it comes to re-piping your home, looking for common signs is always critical. Some of the common signs include:
- Low water pressure
- Strange water color
- Leaky pipes
- High water bills
- Noises coming from the piping
- And more
Our technicians are highly trained to take care of these situations and determine whether or not your home’s piping requires replacements.
