What are some causes for a Repipe?
- Increased water pressure – As the water pressure is increased in parts of the pipe located closer to the water main. The increased pressure begins to wear down the inside of the pipe, causing small little leaks.
- Age-related deterioration – Piping often reaches the end of its service limit at approximately 25 to 30 years. Older homes are more susceptible to the small leaks that develop into major ruptures and flooding.
- Leaks at the fittings – Any manipulation of the elbow joints or other fittings cause an increased water pressure and unsteady flow. This effect wears down the pipes causing them to rupture.
