What to Expect When Replumbing Your Home

Bursting pipes, constant leaks, cloudy water, and other recurring problems in your home may warrant a need for plumbing repairs or replacements. If your plumber cannot identify a single source of the problem, it means your whole system is compromised, and a full re-pipe is required.

So what does this mean? As a homeowner, what can you expect from a replumbing job in your property?

According to experts at Countryside Plumbing & Heating, here’s what that entails:

Step 1: The whole water system is drained and all water faucets and sources are turned off.

Step 2: The plumbers put protective covers over your furniture if you haven’t moved it out for the plumbing job.

Step 3: The plumbers have to cut the drywall to access your pipes. The more proficient and experienced the plumber, the more precise the cuts in the wall.

Step 4: New pipes are installed and connected to toilets, sinks, bathtubs, showers, and other appropriate places.

Step 5: The plumbers turn your water supply on and monitor the new pipes and system for leaks and problems.

Step 6: If everything checks out, there aren’t any leaks, and the pressure is maintaining at the right level, then the drywall is replaced.

Step 7: Based on your specifications, the drywall is sealed and repainted.

If you are unwilling to go through a full replumbing, the same process can be used in places that need immediate attention or that can provide relief from some of the worst plumbing problems in your home.
