House Repiping Specialist
Has your once magnificently cascading shower slowed to a pathetic dribble? Does it drench you with scalding water no matter how furiously you twist the “cold” knob? Is the water issuing from your household faucets an unappealing brownish color? Do you feel something dripping on you from above?
If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, chances are you have worn out piping in your house or office. Antiquated pipes can lead to low water pressure, brownish water, scalding showers and overhead leaks. But never fear: We at Whitton Plumbing stand ready to assist you. We’ll replace all the galvanized steel piping in your home or office with new copper tubing.
Most homes built over 25 years ago are outfitted with galvanized piping, which supply water and drainage. These pipes are coated in zinc, which gives them a silver color. Over a period of time, the zinc on the pipes starts to break down, causing the pipes to rust and setting up the possibility of rupture.
Replacing your antiquated piping with copper tubing is a complicated job. Leave it to Whitton Plumbing, then, to see it through competently and quickly.
You'll know it’s time to replace your galvanized piping with copper tubing when you notice a drop in your home's water pressure. That's because rust has accumulated in your pipes to the point where water can no longer flow freely. These blockages usually occur in elbow fittings. A washing machine that fills slowly and a shower that sprays with diminished vigor are two tell-tale signs of low water pressure in your home.
Copper tubing is durable, lightweight and safe — qualities which make it the ideal material for water supply pipes. Copper tubing resists corrosion, which means you’ll never have to worry about rust holes in your piping. It also has a smooth surface that provides optimal water flow throughout your household.
Some of the benefits of copper are that it:
- Enjoys long-term durability in non-acidic installations
- Discourages bacteria growth
- Resists earthquake damage
- Increases the resale value of your home
- Fits in tight places
- Resists fire
- Eliminates bulky joints
- Easily installs and is ready for use with minimal delay
- Rates highly in terms of internal working pressure
- Meets most building codes
Copper tubing comes in both rigid and flexible forms. Rigid copper, which is sometimes called hard copper, is approved for home water supply systems by all local codes. It comes in three wall-thickness grades: Types M, L, and K. Copper tubing also comes in flexible forms. Flexible copper is also called soft copper and comes in two wall-thickness grades, Types L and K. Since these types of copper tubing are also flexible, they can be easily bent and reformed to fit your existing walls.
