The Value of a Quality Repipe Job

The Value of a Quality Repipe Job

Over time through common wear and tear or the unfortunate circumstance of inferior plumbing equipment, your pipes will eventually take on some damage, resulting in your home requiring a repiping. Due to the extensive nature of a repiping job, it only makes sense to seek the best deal out there, but you should choose your repipe specialist wisely as in most instances, you get what you pay for.

Cheap Price for a Cheap Job

Whenever purchasing a product or service, you can often find a lower price elsewhere, but it may not always work in your favor. Cheaper food, cheaper mattresses, and cheaper cars all sound like good deals, but in the end, you end up with more problems than when you started. The same logic goes to plumbing. You might find a better deal, but will it be worth it when pipes burst to leave you with thousands of dollars’ worth of water damage to your home and belongings?

Some of our competitors may offer cheaper rates, but when you look at the shoddy workmanship, it becomes pretty evident as to why you pay so little for them. We’ve seen other Orlando plumbing companies even go as far as to leave the newly piped system exposed and dangling off the side of the house instead of inside the wall where It belongs or at the very least parallel and flush against the wall. This carelessness in the service provided will hurt you in the long run as such exposed and poorly handled pipe will be more susceptible to damage and wear and tear.

Trust the Best

At Jeff’s Kitchen Bath & Beyond, we don’t cut corners and provide you with the highest standard of work making us well worth the price. We are Orlando’s premier plumbing company, and we always put your needs first. Call today at 407-968-1801 for free estimates and guaranteed upfront pricing.

Why Are My Copper Pipes Leaking?

by jeffskbb on July 7, 2017

Copper pipes are inferior, and due to their high potential to experience disastrous corrosion are not recommended to use in your home. Florida, in particular, is an awful place to have copper piping because of the shortened lifespan of the pipe system. Unfortunately, leaking is quite common in copper pipes, and understanding the root of the problem is the first step to fixing it.

The Problem with Copper

Often with copper pipes, homeowners may come to find that they experience pinhole leaks. These leaks have a tendency to be both dangerous and expensive to fix. The leaks can stem from corrosion within the pipe that eventually works its way to the outside, thus producing a leak. While the precise cause of pinhole is currently unknown, there are many possible explanations such as:

  • When houses are grounded through their copper pipes nearby lightning strikes can cause pin hole leaks
  • High pH levels which provide a substantial acidity to the water, leading to corrosion of the pipes themselves.
  • High chlorine levels that become too much for the pipes to bear and they begin to corrode.

Upon Finding a Leak

In the ill-fated circumstance where you find your pipes to experience leaks, there are several steps you should take to assess the severity of the leak. Is this the first instance or have your pipes sprung several leaks in the past year? You should also consider the age of the piping system. Depending on the age of your pipes, it might be more economical to replace them individually as leaks occur. If the system is an older one, then it might be better to repipe the entire system before the damage becomes insurmountable.
