What is a copper repipe?

Copper repiping is the process of changing the old existing water pipes in either a home or business. Almost all buildings constructed within the last 20 years or even longer were piped with iron pipes which were coated with zinc (galvanized pipes). When these iron pipes get older the zinc will erode and rust will build up. Once the rust builds too much the iron pipes begin to deteriorate and will need to be replaced as soon as possible. The most common repipes are done with copper piping.

How can you tell if you are in need of a copper repipe?

One of the first signs that you are in need of a repipe is a dramatic drop in water pressure, sometimes up to 80% percent! water pressure is the force that water comes out of a fixture which is not to be confused with the volume of water that comes out of your tap over a specific period of time, but the two are related. You will most be able to notice this pressure lost when in the shower or attempting to fill up the laundry machine and also in your sprinkler systems water pressure as well. Another good way to tell that you may need a repiping is if there is some bad smell coming from your fixtures and/or discolored water. Once any of these occur contact streamline plumbing immediately!
