Signs you need to get your house re-piped:

Knowing how to recognize the signs that indicate you may need a water line replacement is crucial. Some of the most common indicators include:

  • High water bill: If you’ve noticed a significant increase in your utility bill without a change in your water usage or you are paying considerably more than your neighbors with similar-sized homes, you could have one or more leaks.
  • Corrosion on pipes: Visible metal pipe corrosion, such as rust or flaking, means you could face a leak or a burst pipe in the near future.
  • Antique pipes: Polybutylene plastic gray pipe, galvanized pipe and copper pipe 20 years or older are at risk of deteriorating and resulting in leaks.
  • Water leaks and spots: If you’ve noticed water spots or damp patches on the walls and ceilings, your pipes are likely failing in certain areas.
  • Water pooling: A surefire sign your water line is damaged and needs re-piped is when you notice water pooling in your home’s crawl space or basement.
  • Discolored water: Yellow or rusty-colored water coming from the hot and cold faucets often means rust inside your pipes.
  • Loss of water pressure: Corrosion or sediment buildup in your pipes can reduce your water pressure over time.
  • Noisy pipes: If you hear banging or screeching when you turn on the faucet, your pipes could have an underlying issue that requires replacement.
  • Foul-smelling or -tasting water: A deteriorating pipe can give your water a sulfuric or metallic smell or taste.
  • Inconsistent water temperature: If you struggle to change the temperature of the water or experience extreme temperature changes, your pipes may need replacing.

Water lines can be made of various materials:

These are some of the pipe materials you’ll likely find in your home:

  • PEX pipe: This new style of water line has been on the market for more than 20 years with little to no issues. It is more cost-efficient than copper lines and less prone to leaks than its predecessor, polybutylene.
  • Blue max and polybutylene (also known as quest pipe): These pipes were mainly used in late 80s and early 90s homes. While they were a precursor to PEX pipe, they tend to split much more often than PEX pipe. Polybutylene is a gray plastic pipe, and blue max is a blue plastic pipe (not to be confused with blue-colored PEX).
  • Black roll: Commonly seen on well systems and early 2000s new construction, this is a cost-effective option but can be less reliable than PEX pipe as it is more prone to breaks when dirt shifts
  • Copper: This is the old gold standard of pipe. It has been installed since the 1930s and is still prevalent today. While PEX has taken over as the more commonly used material, copper can be found in many commercial and residential applications.
  • Galvanized pipes: These are most commonly found in homes built before the 1960s. While galvanized has lasted almost 100 years, it is no longer used this way. Galvanized pipes rust from the pipe wall towards the center of the pipe causing water discoloration and poor pressure. It can also be highly fragile, which leads to leaks.
  • CPVC: Typically found in homes built post-1985, CPVC is a corrosion-resistant pipe that is usually cream in color but can also be gray or yellow. This piping is rarely used now due to its tendency to become brittle after a few years.
