Pros of a Plumbing Re-Pipe
What are the Advantages of a Whole-House Repipe
Homes that have experienced multiple leaks can expect to continue developing more leaks. A whole house repipe can be a proactive preventative measure to protect your home from damage. With an entirely new set of plumbing lines, the chance for a sudden burst pipe or a slow hidden leak is significantly reduced.
Common Signs of Needing a Repipe
When Do I Need a Whole-House Repipe?
- Repeated Water Leaks – Multiple leaks in the plumbing of your home indicate a wide-spread problem with the water pipes.
- Discolored Water – water that is cloudy, rusty, or has a foul odor can indicate deterioration of plumbing lines. However, some homes in Kendall County with water wells may experience this as a factor of the well water.
- Decreased Water Pressure – A sudden drop in water pressure can indicate a break in the plumbing lines. In addition, the hard water in Boerne and the Texas Hill Country can lead to mineral deposits in the pipes which can reduce the water flow.
