However, the inside of the pipes can be clogged with rust that slows down your home’s water pressure. This corrosion causes the pipes to become paper thin and easy to break. This can also lead to your home’s water supply having a foul smell. Galvanized and copper pipes can also develop leaks that can rot and cause damage to your home. Repiping is the process of replacing your older, rusty pipes with new ones that will help the pressure and quality of the water in your home.
Polybutylene Pipe Replacement Specialist
What is Polybutylene? It is a plastic resin used in the manufacture of plastic pipes and fittings from 1978 until 1995. During this time polybutylene was installed in up to ten million homes and businesses throughout the United States including Tucson, Vail, Oro Valley, Marana and more! The main problem with polybutylene is that it fails suddenly, without warning, and often fails catastrophically, causing your house to be buried in a pool of water leaving you hung out to dry.
Because this type of pipe was much cheaper and easier to install than other competing materials it was touted by many as being “the pipe of the future”. Its widespread popularity spanned nearly two decades, resulting in a recurring nightmare for countless households, businesses, and municipalities, both domestically and around the globe, but more importantly in the Tucson area.
