When you still have an old plumbing system in your home, surely this uses galvanized pipes. This type of pipes tends to get clogged easily that is why it won’t be a surprise that problems in your pipes would occur. The best option for you is repiping.

Repiping Options

When you think about repiping, you have two good options – COPPER REPIPING or PEX REPIPING. Any of the two will do depending on which one you prefer.

Most of the households today use copper piping due to its durability. It has been proven to be among the best type of pipes for your plumbing. Installation of this pipe however is a bit costly since it requires a lot of work for the installation.

The plumber needs to do a lot of cutting and soldering. This is why it would cost higher compared to going for PEX repiping. With the use of PVC pipes, the plumber will simply glue the fittings together. They would use a water resistant adhesive to ensure that water will not leak on these connections.

Since connecting is done easily, it would not cost you that much when it comes to its installation. When talking about the cost of the materials, it would  depend on the thickness and rating of the material you choose.

When you consider thick pipes with higher ratings, it would mean that you have to spend more. Though it is best to consider high grade pipes, you also have to consider the possible overall expense.
