Should I Replace Old Water Lines?
Plumbing systems can falter and fail as the years go by. Metal pipes can crack, corrode, and rust. Plastic pipes can burst and deform under the weight of a vehicle or due to changing soil conditions. Tree roots and construction work can damage pipes beyond repair. Unfortunately, these problems aren't always readily apparent, and by the time they're discovered, the pipe is usually beyond repair and will require replacement.
Leaving weakened pipes in the ground can diminish water quality and cause damage to your structure and landscaping. This can reduce your property value and make it less attractive to tenants. As such, commercial repiping is a cost-effective decision that we strongly recommend when pipe repairs are not a practical option.
Replacing Polybutylene Pipes in Fort Myers
Polybutylene pipes are lurking in millions of businesses and homes throughout the country. Installed from the 1970s and into the mid-90s, they are typically gray, blue, or white and can be identified with a simple visual inspection. David Gray can replace polybutylene pipes with more durable and reliable PEX (polyethylene) or copper pipes.
Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Repiping
What does PEX stand for?
PEX is the acronym for polyethylene pipe. It is flexible and cheaper than copper and is specifically designed to resist scale. It will not rust and is fast and easy to install because there are minimal connections and fittings. This also means it is less likely to leak.
Why do polybutylene pipes fail?
Polybutylene pipes contain chlorine and other chemicals that react to water and air and degrade the pipe's integrity. As the pipe deteriorates, it will crack, and the fittings tend to loosen and leak.
How long does a video camera pipe inspection take?
Video camera pipe inspections are a non-invasive technique that takes about an hour to complete for most commercial businesses. Larger businesses may require more time depending on how much pipe needs inspected.
Why should I replace commercial pipes?
Corroded pipes can leak, which will decrease water pressure. For example, polybutylene pipes will crack and fail without warning. Lead pipes in historic properties can cause health problems. And galvanized steel pipes can rust and cause leaks that will allow water to damage your property.
