Pipelining and re-piping

To help you identify whether it’s time for a re-pipe or pipelining in your commercial business here are some signs to look out for:

1. Water Pressure is Low or Unbalanced
2. Scalding or Extreme Water Temperature
3. Fluctuation in Water Temperature
4. Discolored Water
5. Recurring Leaks
6. Noisy Plumbing Fixtures

If you are experiencing any of these signs, it may be time to consider pipelining or re-piping for your property.

Below is a short description of the differences between each:

Pipelining

Pipelining isn’t a new idea. This process has been developed and refined over the last several decades for the use of pipes both inside and outside structures. Choosing to line your plumbing pipes, you are sealing and prevent leaks without taking out drywall, finishes, jackhammering through concrete foundations, sidewalks and parking lots. This service helps restore your pipes to like-new condition, without the cost involved in hiring additional contractors to perform repair work.

Re-piping

If pipelining is more convenient and holds up, why bother re-piping? Pipelining won’t work if there is an actual hole or similar damage to a pipe. Also, re-piping will last decades longer than pipelining.

Another reason you need re-piping is if your commercial or industrial building has galvanized steel pipes and Orangeburg pipes these types of piping systems are no longer used and beyond their expected useful lives.
