Many homeowners would prefer to repair their pipes instead of investing in repiping. For the most part, this is the better solution because it’s easier, less expensive, and takes less time. However, there are a few instances where repiping is actually the better option.
Here are some signs that it’s time to repipe your home:
When it comes to our Mississauga repiping services and your home, there are two standard piping materials used in the industry today. Both PEX and copper have their own benefits. Both materials are safe, reliable and eliminate any strange metallic taste from the water.
Here are some of the main differences between the two to help you decide which is right for you:
If you’re on the fence about repiping your home, let the experts at Gold Medal Plumbing and Drain help. Our licensed technicians will inspect your pipes and determine if repiping is necessary.
As a Gold Medal Plumbing and Drain customer, you can always expect:
It is illegal (and not a very environmentally or plumbing friendly practice) to connect any rain or ground water to the sewer or a septic tank. IF, however, you do hookup – at the very least put a trap in the line to keep sewer gas out of the house.
If you’ve installed a new fill valve, and are certain that everything else in the toilet is working properly, leaks could very well be high water pressure. If your water pressure is so high that it leaks past a Fluidmaster 400A or another new ballcock (aka: “toilet fill valve”) – then you NEED a pressure reducing valve. Other water pipes, connectors, clothes washing machine hoses and your water heater could leak or break. Best to get a water pressure regulator if your pressure to the house is more than 60 pounds
Yes, drain pipes do dry out and get real rough. Will it clear up with use? Maybe. Is there anything you can really do about it? Not after the fact. Prevention is best here – try to run some water through infrequently used drains every so often to keep this from happening.
When the lowest plumbing fixture in the house overflows when another fixture (like a clothes washing machine) is draining; most commonly the septic tank needs to be pumped, there is a break in the sewer pipe outside the house or the main drain is plugged somewhere. However, the washing machine line could be connected to close to the “suds rinse zone”, meaning the washer waste ties into the waste or soil line of another fixture too close downstream from the problem fixture. What is happening is the water is rushing by the suds at a high velocity, pushing ahead of the suds. Because the fixture is the closest place of relief, the suds will come up into the fixture, even a toilet. The code requires that a washing machine, kitchen sink, shower, and dishwasher line be connected at least 5′ downstream from any fixture branch. This could be just one of many possibilities for the bubbling and backup. We strongly recommend contacting a licensed plumber to help you diagnose your individual situation.
