When it's Time to Replace Your Pipes

It’s not always easy to tell when it’s time to call Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating to replace the piping in your home. But if you own an older home, your pipes may need to be replaced sooner than you think!

Many older homes in Rio Rancho, Bernalillo and Albuquerque were originally fitted with polybutylene pipes. Structures built between the late 1970’s and mid 1990’s likely contain polybutylene. We highly recommend re-piping if you discover this is the case for your home or business. Polybutylene pipes are extremely poor quality, and tend to wear down when they come in contact with minerals and oxidants in water. Polybutylene pipes can become fragile and scale or flake. If left alone, these pipes will deteriorate and the resulting leak can cause serious water damage to your home or business, costing you thousands of dollars!

Even if your home wasn’t originally fitted with polybutylene pipes, if your piping is older, it may be past its prime. Look over the home inspection report from when you bought your home. Depending on the materials your pipes are made of, and how old they are, it may be time to contact us!

Affordable Service will replace all or part of your plumbing system with Wirsbo PEX piping, or polyethylene. Polyethylene is flexible and durable, able to withstand increases in water pressure and decreases in temperature. Wirsbo PEX piping is reliable and withstands corrosion, making it an excellent choice for your home or business.

Replacing the pipes in your home or business is a large project. The best time to take this on, is when you’re renovating. Affordable Service is always trying to save you money, so check out our seasonal specials and coupons to save money. Replacing your pipes is worth it in the long run though, you prevent expensive damage, and often you will save money on your insurance premiums. Protect your home. If you’re unsure about your current plumbing system and the integrity of your pipes, call us for an evaluation!
