The plumbing system in your home was not built to last forever. After some time, the pipes weaken, leading to leaks, reduced water pressure and water pollution concerns. If your home has not been re-piped in the last few decades, you need to start planning for it. Re-piping is a big job that comes with a job expense. But ignoring the problem only makes the situation worse and adds unnecessary costs to the expense. Furthermore, there are some benefits to re-piping your entire house. Some of the benefits are highlighted below:
When pipes start to deteriorate, they contaminate the water supply with rust or worse, lead. By re-piping your house, you improve the color, smell, and taste of your water. You also avoid health complications associated with lead poisoning (e.g. kidney diseases, hypertension, miscarriages, and premature births).
Protect Home Fixtures
When your plumbing system is compromised, it affects all home fixtures. Rust and mineral deposits collect in taps, showerheads, dishwashers, washing machines and all other fixtures. When you re-pipe, you avoid maintenance and replacement costs and ensure optimal water supply to all home fixtures and appliances.
Almost 30% of home losses in 2016 were caused by water leaks and damages. Re-piping cuts down the likelihood of a leak significantly, leading to a reduction in your annual homeowner insurance costs.
A whole house re-pipe requires a certain commitment, but in the end, the payoffs are worth it. In addition to the points above, you also enjoy great water pressure and increase the value of your home. You will also have comfort in knowing that every time you go out of town you will not come back to an unexpected disaster.
