Home Repipe in Rio Rancho

If you’re always paying for plumber work and repairs from leaky water pipes we can help. A repipe can remove lingering plumbing issues. Installing a new system will help you avoid having any further repairs for many future years.

Your house has Polybutylene pipe. Polybutylene is a type of plumbing that can be found in many homes in Rio Rancho, NM. It was very popular during the 1980s and 1990s because of how inexpensive it is to make, obtain, install, and use. Polybutylene has been known to cause leaks, which we’re pretty sure is the last thing anyone wants is leaks in their homes. A number of homeowners continue to discover the issues associated with polybutylene. With that being said, many homeowners have chosen to replace their pipes with PEX piping, (AQUAPEX®).

You’re looking to do a plumbing remodel. If you’re thinking about installing a new bathroom remodel in Rio Rancho or other plumbing fixtures, replacing them and doing a partial house repipe at the same time can save you time and money over the years. A home update or addition such as a bathroom will add value to your home. It would be best to make the initial due diligence of this type of home project will last. 

Types of Repipe Materials to Choose For Your Home in Rio Rancho

  • Polyethylene (PEX or AQUAPEX®) is a type of plastic pipe that is extremely flexible, lightweight, easy to install even where there is limited space, costs less than copper, and lasts longer than CPVC pipe. PEX is the newest and one of the most effective plumbing innovations in modern times. It’s ideal for remodeling or renovating an old home.

As PEX becomes more popular, it is slowly becoming the most common piping material for homes. It is considered an excellent material to transfer both hot and cold water, is more efficient than other materials, and won’t need a replacement for a long time. Complete home repiping requires PEX pipes. It is ideal for indoors because exposure to UV rays can damage it.

  • Copper pipe is commonly used in the building industry for water supply lines, refrigerant lines in H V A C systems, and electrical wiring. Plastic pipes are resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and impact damages better than copper pipes because they don’t corrode.

Copper pipes are still a commonly used type of plumbing pipe because they’re durable, long-lasting, and resistant to corrosion. Copper pipes with lead-free joint materials are the best option for water pipes after PEX for most homes. They’re long-lasting and won’t leach any chemicals into your drinking water.

Rio Rancho Pipe Repipe FAQ

The exact timeline for house repipe can be determined once our plumber evaluates the work. The size of your home and the extent of the repipe plays a part in the length of time.  You’re not going to be without water for long periods of time. Our goal is to make the process of a repipe as smooth as possible. During the time of the project, you will have access to use sinks, showers, or toilets. We aim to get the job completed as efficiently and as soon as possible. 

If you want to replace your old copper or polybutylene pipes, you should consider doing so when you have old metal or poly piping. They’re more likely to leak and may also contaminate the drinking water in some cases. Repiping can also be a proactive move to upgrade pipes that are five years old or older. Meanwhile, partial repiping is an excellent choice when renovating, and may be used when your budget can’t afford a full whole house repipe.

Certainly, repiping a home will add value, as it eliminates the need to repipe the home for many years to come. Your home is not only your home but also an investment. Certain updates like a repipe will help your home hold its value. 

There are a number of different reasons why plumbing pipes may go bad. It could be due to any number of reasons, including old age, poor installation and maintenance, compatibility issues, material quality issues, external structural damage, and many others.

Most plumbing pipes don’t need to be replaced, but they just need to be repaired. If one or two pipes burst or incur some kind of damage, they can be repaired using our piping techniques. However, there are some other cases when the whole house plumbing system needs to be re-piped completely. Contact our professional plumbers at United Plumbing to determine the best course for your plumbing pipe renovation.

Definitely not. You must hire a licensed and permitted plumber for re-pipe plumbing services to ensure that you’re up to code and safe from any potential hazards. Professional plumbers retain the proper resources, such as training, equipment, and licenses, to perform master plumbing jobs like re-piping or repairing. You should never attempt to perform your own plumber’s services at this level of complexity because you might end up causing even bigger damage than before.

If you want to. Repiping is construction, so there’ll be a lot of activity during the project. Not every room will be worked on. We want you to not feel too inconvenienced so just know that you can either stay at home or go out for some errands or visit someone. You’ll have access to water by the end of the first night.
