With years of experience and a commitment to customer satisfaction, we have the expertise and equipment necessary to ensure you receive lasting plumbing solutions.

Do I Need To Repipe The Pipes In My Capitol Hill Home?

Eventually, all drain and water pipelines need to be replaced, and repiping allows us to replace galvanized steel or copper water lines. If your home is more than fifty years old, there is a fair chance that it’s time to replace the piping. There are several symptoms of a water line in disrepair, including odor, rust, and discolored water. Difficulty adjusting water pressure and temperature are also signs that the pipes are failing.

At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we recommend yearly plumbing inspections to all of our customers as the best way to evaluate the functionality of the pipe; however, even if you keep up with routine maintenance, eventually pipes will need to be replaced. Luckily, repiping does not have to take more than a few days, nor does it need to be expensive. Our technicians are trained to repipe the water line at your property with flexible PEX piping or trenchless pipe lining.

What Are PEX Pipes?

PEX piping is a flexible plastic pipe that resembles a hose and eliminates the need for damaging infrastructure in your home during installation. PEX pipes can be maneuvered into place through access points or small areas created during installation. Repiping with PEX is an economical choice, because it requires less labor and time to complete than traditional pipeline replacement. Clients who choose PEX piping enjoy fast, easy, and cost-effective installation.

What Is The Trenchless Pipe Lining Process?

Trenchless pipe lining is a non-invasive method of pipe repair that involves relining the inside of old pipes. This allows us to rehabilitate the pipes without removing them or needing to excavate properties. Before pipe lining is determined a viable option, our technician will perform a professional inspection on your pipeline. If pipe lining is chosen as the method of repair, the technician will clean the inside of the pipeline and then insert a felt liner soaked in an epoxy resin into the pipes through an existing access point.

The use of an existing access point means there is no need to dig trenches through the landscaping. Instead, we perform the repairs through the established cleanout or other location in your home. After it is inserted, the liner is inflated until the epoxy resin coating it hardens into the new pipe after a few hours. The liner we install offers many benefits and value, as the epoxy resin material is environmentally-friendly and resists corrosion. It also rejects the buildup of waste found in traditional piping materials and prevents the substances from filtering into the water supply. Finally, epoxy pipes last for at least fifty years, meaning you enjoy quality, clean water for decades to come.
