An Overview on Repiping

Posted in Plumbing Repairs

Repiping is the replacement of the old and damaged pipes with properly functioning new ones. It is basically the installation of a new copper ‘repair system’. The process includes removal of the old accessible pipes and the installation of the new ‘plumbing system’. For the task to be carried out effectively, you must hire professional plumbers in Surrey. To ensure the plumbing task is performed effectively, you have to take into account an array of factors such as piping material, weather conditions, cost of the plumbing procedure etc.

Factors to Consider for the Repiping Procedure

Cost: Repiping is a costly procedure and must be done right away. If the procedure is timely done without delay, it can help in saving on expensive repairs in the future. Make sure the repiping procedure is performed by a proficient plumber in Surrey using the right material. A competent plumber would give good suggestions to all his clients related to the kind of material you can use for the purpose of repiping.

Humidity: If there are signs of ‘pipe sweating’ repiping needs to be done. ‘Pipe sweating’ can take place during winter and summer months. Copper is used for the construction of the ‘main pipe’ and the plastic material for the ‘PEX tubing’. As soon as the ‘cold water’ enters the ‘water pipes’ the cold energy reach the pipe walls. The ‘humid air’ will condense into the water as soon as it comes into contact with the pipe walls. This would result in the water puddle formation in the building basement.

Geographical Location: The repiping procedure is based on a region. For example, the repiping procedure must be done properly to ensure no ‘frozen pipes’ develop. The ‘frozen pipes’ burst and therefore precautions must be taken to make sure there is no development of the frozen pipes. You need to be careful that no ‘cast iron’ is used in the ‘drought-prone’ regions for the repiping procedure. Ground shifts as a result of high temperatures and dry heat cause the brittle cast iron pipes to crack.
