WHAT IS GALVANIZED PLUMBING

corroded pipes.jpg

Galvanized iron pipes are actually steel pipes that are covered with a protective layer of zinc. Galvanized pipes were installed in many homes that were built before the 1960s. Over many years, zinc erodes from galvanized pipes exposing the steel. The steel then starts to rust or corrode.

HOW TO IDENTIFY GALVANIZED PIPING

Find where your piping enters your home and scratch it. If the piping is galvanized steel, the scratched area will be a silver-gray color and have threads on each end.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE GALVANIZED PLUMBING

Houston area residents should consider replacing their plumbing if they have corroded (galvanized) plumbing and have or had a lead service line. We Do Repipes can send out a professional to help you determine if your pipes need to be replaced.  If replacing your pipes is not an immediate option, it is recommended you install a  NSF certified filter that removes lead at the tap or a pitcher filter are also acceptable alternatives.  Call today 832-819-8337.

We perform repipes or pipe replacement to avoid costly damage to your home. If you need to replace galvanized pipes, we recommend PEX (cross linked polyethylene pipe) for your repipe.  PEX installation is the quickest and cleanest method for repiping. We only use high quality uponor PEX to repipe. Call today for a no obligation quote 832-819-8337.

WHAT IS A REPIPE

Repiping is a process of installing a water supply system. This process usually includes removing old readily accessible pipe and then installing the new plumbing system. Included in the process is the installation of new uponor PEX water supply lines. After the new piping system is installed the water is turned back on, the system is pressure tested and then flushed out. The repiping process takes 1-3 days to install the new piping system. After the actual plumbing replacement, there will be some required wall patching. 

A professional site inspection is critical to a successful repiping process. Standard repiping projects include installation of all new hot and cold domestic water piping from the water source to all existing faucets and fixtures. Unless specifically included in the proposal, drain replacement and fixtures are not included in a repipe. Call today for a no obligation quote 832-819-8337.

ADVANTAGES OF PEX

PEX plumbing systems are installed more often in new home construction than copper and CPVC systems combined. This is because PEX is more durable, more reliable and a cleaner option for a home’s plumbing system. PEX-a is the most flexible of all PEX types.  

Its shape and thermal memory allows the use of ProPEX expansion fittings which are the only fitting system that actually gets stronger over time – making it highly leak resistant.

PEX is the more affordable and contemporary option for repiping. Uponor's pex is a lead-free plumbing system from inlet to faucet, providing you and your family a safe, clean and healthy system for transporting water.

TESTIMONIALS

This company just did a complete Repipe for me this week. They did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, and how they said they would do it. I was frankly dreading this project, but they executed flawlessly with attention to detail and multiple quality control inspections to make sure the job was done properly. I hope I never have to do this again, but if I do I’ll just be making one phone call to this company!
