If you live in an older structure, chances are your piping system is old as well. You may have aging pipes that have gone through a lot of abuse over the years. Depending on the material of the pipes, they may begin to come apart at the joints and experience small cracks and fissures.
As water begins to slowly drip out of your pipes, structural damage will follow. You may have various forms of water damage behind your walls because of slow drips coming out of the pipes. If this deterioration continues, you may also experience warped walls, mold, mildew and a variety of other problems.
Copper repiping may be the only option for you to overcome these problems. It’s a good idea to have a representative of Fischer Plumbing inspect your property. We can diagnose any piping problems and can determine whether or not you are in need of new pipes. The repiping process will then take about 3 days if you decide to move forward with the project.
Plumbing and sewage pipes may need to be replaced in your home. PVC and other materials are used today that weren’t available years ago. By upgrading from copper pipes to these modern materials, you can save yourself a lot of problems down the road.
Copper pipes aren’t the best option for your home anymore. These are costly and not very eco-friendly. You can sell the copper pipes and use the money to pay for better pipes in your home. With new pipes, you will experience better flow of water without any leaks and this option is more cost effective than repiping with copper.
Your sewage system may contain clay pipes, which are very susceptible to root damage as well as cracking because of changes in the ground temperature.

Fischer Plumbing professionals can come out, diagnose the problem and provide you with a quote if it is found that you need re-piping services.
