Repipe and Pipe Replacement

Whole house repiping can turn a leaking house into a cozy, dry home. We can also do partial repiping. We replace leaking galvanized, cast iron, or polybutylene pipes with PEX or copper piping. Many older homes were built with plumbing pipe that may start to leak over time, especially at pipe joints. This can cause water damage to your home or business.

Replacing the water pipes in your home with PEX piping (AQUAPEX®) can increase the value of your home. The PEX pipe material is a proven and high-quality pipe replacement system. It is flexible and resistant to cracking, freezing, and leaking. We have helped hundreds of homeowners avoid costly water damage by replacing old plumbing with high-quality PEX water lines.

We Provide Affordable Repiping Services

It’s important to choose the right plumbing company for any major project. You don’t want to end up with a contractor who cuts corners and ends up costing you more money down the road. Look for a plumber or plumbing company like United Plumbing who:

  • Fully licensed and insured
  • Has lots of good references and online reviews
  • Has been in business for many decades

Benefits of Repiping a House

The benefits of repiping include the reduced cost over time, an increase in the value of your home and property, less risk of leaks and pipe failures, and improved indoor air quality by reducing airborne mold and mildew caused by leaks.

A whole-house repiping is necessary when the plumbing in a home has been compromised. This is an option for anyone with a leaking or insufficient water pressure, as it can fix many problems. The old pipes are removed and new pipes are installed, leaving the plumbing system newly updated and in good condition. Whole house repiping can also make improvements to other areas of a home as well, such as replacing old fixtures or adding accessibility features.

Repiping ensures that there won’t be any leaks from corroded water lines or reduced water pressure because it installs new pipes throughout your entire home from the basement to each floor including bathrooms and kitchen sinks. We provide Rio Rancho Pipe and Repipe but service all local cities.

  • How many plumbing fixtures are in the home

Removing old pipes is also something to think about. Most homeowners choose to keep the original, unused steel pipes behind their walls. Other people may decide to remove them. You may be charged an extra fee if you have us remove the old pipes. Talk to us about specfic options for your situation.

Replacing Galvanized Pipe and Plumbing

The first step in the process of replacing galvanized piping is to identify all locations where it can be found. This will help us know what materials we need to order and how much time will be needed for the job.

Next, we need to find out if there are any changes that must be made. For example, if a pipe needs to go through a wall or floor. We must make sure that it has enough room and is not too close to anything else in the house such as water heaters or furnaces. Once we complete these steps we can start removing old galvanized pipes from the walls.

This must be done very carefully because pipes may still contain water inside them and when cut off from their source it can cause damage in other places such as flooding another part of your home with water.

Once removed, we take them outside where we can safely discard them.

The next step is to connect new piping for incoming water supplies. The final step would involve replacing with new piping and repairing any cuts in walls etc.

Copper Water Pipe and Home Repiping

Copper pipes have been a staple within the plumber industry for decades. This type of plumbing pipe can last for decades and is commonly found in sinks, showers, tubs, and any other fixture in new and old homes Copper pipes remain popular amongst plumbers and homeowners alike due to their corrosion resistance and ability to protect the quality of water.

Copper pipes are able to handle high water pressures and are tolerant of both cold and hot water temperatures. It can also be recycled, which makes it an eco-friendly option.

What Are The Best Repipe Materials?

Repiping homes in Albuquerque and the surrounding areas is common. The best materials in our experience are:

  1. PEX (AQUAPEX®)
  2. Copper
  3. CPVC

If your home has a crawlspace or basement under it, then copper piping may be the best choice. But if your neighborhood is known for pitted corrosion, then PEX is what you need.

When it comes to replacing old pipes, cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) is the new standard. It is cheaper than copper, so it is an economical alternative to copper. Pex is easier and lighter than traditional copper tubing. PEX pipes are usually quite durable and should last for many years. However, in rare instances, they may split.
