What Is Repiping?

Repiping is the process of replacing every pipe inside your home. This type of job requires some construction and will be somewhat invasive, as we need to take the old pipes out and replace them with new ones. We lay pipes correctly the first time, so you do not need to worry about more problems with your plumbing system after this major change.

When Do I Need Repiping?

Repiping is not a service we recommend lightly. Since it does involve removing all of the existing pipes from your home and replacing them, it is a time-consuming process. If possible, we will find a way to repair individual pipes if you have a standard leak. However, there are certain piping materials that need to be replaced, especially if they have been in your home for decades already. Every pipe reaches the end of its lifespan at some point, and repiping in Caldwell gives you the ability to trust that your plumbing system will last for years to come.

The following materials indicate that your pipes likely need to be replaced sooner rather than later.

Cast Iron

There are a large number of homes in Caldwell that were built before 1960. Some of the homes here are quite historical, aging back to the ‘30s or earlier. Older homes built through the 1960s are the most likely to have cast iron pipes. If you have cast iron pipes, we recommend getting them replaced as soon as possible, since they are likely corroded and could be leaching lead into your water.

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel pipes have a zinc coating to help prevent corrosion and rust. However, this coating is not entirely effective, and galvanized steel pipes have fallen out of fashion over time. This means that if you still have this type of pipe, you are due for repiping in Caldwell, NJ.

Polybutylene (PB)

Polybutylene is a type of plastic piping that became especially popular in the 1980s. So, if your home was built around then (or repiped at that time), check with Lesco Plumbing, Heating & Cooling to see if your pipes are made with this material. It breaks easily, especially when exposed to heat, and was deemed unsafe in the ‘90s.

When you need repiping in Caldwell or the surrounding areas, whether it’s because you have one of the above types of pipes or for another, give Lesco Plumbing, Heating & Cooling a call. We are happy to speak to you about the process and schedule an appointment to inspect your current plumbing system.
