Whole House Repiping

Though pipes are typically designed to last 30 years or more, it is not uncommon for your home’s piping to wear down earlier and become in need of whole house repiping services. Our professional plumbing company has worked in the Treasure Coast for decades and have worked with an assortment of many different home’s plumbing systems.

Replace Old, Damaged Pipes

Do you and your family frequently experience low water pressure? Is there rust or yellow-colored water springing from the shower head? Do you often get that burning hot water in the shower when someone flushes the toilet, uses the sink, or turns on the washing machine? If so, the quality of your plumbing could be significantly improved with repiping services

No matter what age, lead pipes and polybutylene pipes should be replaced immediately for the following reasons.

  • Lead Pipes: Lead pipes can contaminate drinking water. Lead can pose a health hazard for any household.
  • Polybutylene Pipes: These pipes are extremely fragile and very prone to breakage.

These pipes are no longer up to standard with plumbing codes and if not replaced, they could cause long-term property damage and health problems for your family.

Whole House Repiping Process

Our professionals are equipped to handle any repiping service, large or small, and if the repair fails in the first two years, we’ll repair it again absolutely free. Whole home pipe replacement can make your plumbing setup more efficient as well, saving you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

During the process, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Port St. Lucie will:

  • Come into your home and replace your supply plumbing system.
  • Corroded pipes or ones with Pin or Slab hole leaks will be completely replaced rather than fixed temporarily.
  • When possible, we will route your new pipes through the same holes in the walls and floors, tightly sealing the excess space.
  • After installing the new pipes, we will test your plumbing system’s pressure and flush them out.
