Replumbing & Repiping a Home in Indianapolis, IN
It may be time to replumb or repipe your home if you have low water pressure, recurring leaks, rusty colored water in the taps, or can see visible signs of corrosion. At Northern Comfort Systems, our certified plumbers can inspect your pipes and recommend the best course of action. Because replumbing and repiping can disrupt water service, we work quickly to minimize the disruption to your daily life.
Advantages of Plastic Pipes Vs. Copper Plumbing
Plastic and copper pipes are the most common plumbing choices for homeowners in Indianapolis. Both are reliable, durable plumbing choices for your home.
Plastic pipes offer many advantages that include:
- Resists corrosion
- Offers superior heat retention
- Allows for greater water pressure
- Less expensive than copper pipes
Copper pipes offer numerous advantages that include:
- Strong resistance to chlorine
- Can be used indoors and outdoors
- Expected lifespan of 70+ years
- Resists bacterial growth
Whole-home repiping entails installing an entirely new plumbing system. This involves removing all the old pipes and replacing them with the copper or plastic pipes of your choice. In most cases, whole-home repiping takes our teams three to five days to complete.
Lead Pipe Replacement
Lead pipes can leach toxic elements into your water supply. When replacing lead pipes, it is imperative to remove all the offending piping and fixtures. Our teams can remove these and replace them with newer, non-toxic pipes that will leave your water clean and healthy. We can also recommend rebate and incentive programs that can alleviate the costs associated with lead pipe replacement.
Polybutylene Pipe Replacement
Polybutylene pipes are prone to leaks and ruptures. Most will fail around 10-15 years after installation. These pipes are considered hazardous, and it is imperative to remove them as soon as possible. Our teams will replace your old polybutylene pipes with new, more reliable, and ecologically friendlier options.
Water Main Replacement
Damaged water mains can cause significant damage to your home and landscape. If you notice the following, you may need a water main replacement:
- Higher than expected water bills
- Pest infestations
- Soggy landscaping
- Cracks in sidewalks/masonry/driveways
- Frequent clogs
Our team will inspect your water main and determine whether repairs or replacement are the most effective option.
