Re-piping Rules for Vintage Homes
Plumbing systems, which are mostly hidden behind walls, take a beating every day. Eventually, they wear out and need to be replaced. Rust stains on sinks and leaks that are caused by corroded pipes are two signs that you need to have your pipes replaced. You can also gauge when you’ll need to replace worn pipes with your property inspection report. A property inspection will tell you the materials of your pipes and drain lines. Brass, copper and galvanized steel are common materials for supply pipes. Iron and Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are typical materials for drain lines. Each material has an estimated lifespan of 80 years except for PVC, which has an expected useful life of 25 years. You can subtract the expected lifespan of the materials from the age of the plumbing system to see if your home is a candidate for pipe replacement. Lead pipes, which are mostly found in historic homes, impact water quality and should be replaced as soon as possible. Call us at (847) 457-4847 to set up a plumbing video inspection of your pipes to see their condition.
Pipe Installation and Repairs for Remodelers
Renovations are often the best times to replace worn-out pipes. These remodeling projects usually require old pipes to be rerouted and new pipes to be installed to support room additions and changes to building layouts. Blue Collar Plumbing, Inc. can help you to meet the city’s plumbing codes and pass inspections during your next renovation project.
