Copper Repipe Bay Area

What is a copper repipe and how much will it cost?
If your home has been built more than 20 years ago, there is a good chance that the water pipes are made of galvanized material. It’s been shown that these pipes will corrode over time and will require copper repiping to offset the damage, wear and irreversible pipe corrosion. Galvanized pipe corrosion in a home can cause a drop in water quality and may even pose health concerns. Copper repiping is the removal or bypass of existing pipes, replaced by new, clean copper pipes. Copper used is made from the finest quality available and has a lifetime quality guarantee. The cost of repiping varies on your home size and plumbing layout. Frequently the cost of a complete copper repipe with Repipe Specialists is half of what a local plumber might charge.

Before and After - Galvanized vs Copper PipeWhat issues should I look out for?
If you experience water pressure that is lower than it used to be, your water is discolored or has a metallic taste, a slab leak appears or you find leaks or pipe corrosion, it’s about time you repipe your plumbing with new copper pipes. Many of these clues and symptoms can be early indicators of major pipe corrosion. This can also lead to in-house plumbing leaks, which can often lead to mildew or mold within your walls.

How much time does a copper repipe take?
As a general rule a full copper repipe takes just a few days. You do not have to book a hotel out of fear of having no water or being able to bathe. You don’t have to leave your home. Our copper repipe installers and technicians take extra pride in keeping your flooring clean and take extra care to cover your flooring and furnishing before the repipe starts. The Repipe Specialists installation team always includes a master patcher, who seamlessly patches any wall sections that needed to be exposed to complete the repipe. We often experience customers who are surprised that Repipe Specialists completes the job in a matter of days, leaving very little evidence that a full copper repipe had just taken place. As one client has told us, “My wife could not locate where the wall patches were done, as your team left no trace that a major plumbing operation had just completed.”

What happens after a copper repipe?
One of the first things customers find after a copper repipe is a dramatic increase in water pressure. With age, rust and corrosion had collected inside your old pipes, restricting flow and causing water pressure loss. People often find an overall improvement in your water quality as well. When your pipes are free of contaminants or corrosion, you’ll see a clear difference in the quality of taking a shower, your dishwasher and your clothes washing machine.
