2024 is the YEAR of the REPIPE - If your home was built in the 1990’s or earlier, it’s a question of “if”... It’s “when” will the pipes fail?
There are 2 types of pipes that need to be replaced as soon as possible:
CPVC - Newer homes built in the mid-1990’s and early 2000’s in the Puget Sound were likely built using CPVC water lines. Unfortunately, it has been found that CPVC pipe will fail after a very short period of time and typically has little advance warning. CPVC pipes are the #1 cause of water bursts. If you’ve had a leak and the plumber found CPVC, it’s only a short amount of time before a burst can happen. If failure happens, typically at a 90° joints inside the wall, it can cause costly repairs far beyond the point of failure.
GALVANIZED - Older homes with galvanized pipes are also susceptible to failure. How do you know when it’s time to replace galvanized pipes?
Investing in repiping your home now will save you in the long run. A water failure that isn’t caught early, will seep into walls and under the flooring leading to costly water mitigation and reconstruction that quickly escalates into costing tens of thousands of dollars in repairs to your home and months of service work within your home.
