Do I Have To Replace Old Water Lines?
Plumbing systems don't last forever. Old pipes can crack, corrode, and rust. They can suffer damage from root infiltration, construction projects, changes in soil conditions, and more. These problems can lay hidden underground for years before you even notice there is an issue.
Weakened pipes can negatively affect your water quality and damage your structure. The longer the problem sits, the more damage it causes, and the more it can reduce the value of your property. Commercial repiping is a cost-effective investment that protects your business from future damage.
Replacing Polybutylene Pipes in Gainesville
Polybutylene pipes were installed in millions of businesses and homes from the late 1970s through the mid-1990s. Typically gray, blue, or white, polybutylene pipes were sold as a cost-effective alternative to copper. However, they are a ticking time bomb prone to cracking and sudden failure.
The team at David Gray can replace polybutylene pipes with PEX (polyethylene) or copper pipes. Our PEX and copper repipe services protect your business from damage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Repiping
What is PEX?
PEX is the acronym for polyethylene pipes. This flexible pipe is cheaper than copper and engineered to resist scale. Since it's plastic, it won't corrode. Installation requires very few connections and fittings, making it less likely to leak than other pipes.
What causes polybutylene pipes to fail?
Polybutylene pipes were manufactured with chlorine and other chemicals in the finished product. Over time, these chemicals react with water and other elements, which causes the pipes to deteriorate and crack, and the fittings to loosen and leak. Often, when pipe failure occurs, it is sudden and unexpected.
What is a video camera pipe inspection?
Video camera pipe inspections use a non-invasive technique that allows a deep look within your pipes without tearing up flooring or landscaping. This method allows us to determine whether repiping is necessary or whether an alternative action is required.
Why should I replace commercial pipes?
Corroded pipes can leak and cause decreased water pressure. If left unrepaired, these leaks can easily damage your building and inventory and create health problems for tenants and employees.
