Reasons to Choose Copper Piping

Red Lilly Plumbing has a long history of quality and effectiveness in plumbing which is why we always use the best materials. Copper was used in the earliest indoor plumbing and has been widely used in residential and commercial plumbing in the United States for more than 70 years. Copper pipes are durable, lasting as long as 50 years before needing to be replaced.

Copper is a popular piping choice due to the following benefits:

  • Resists corrosion
  • Won’t crack and crumble over the years
  • Is natural and environmentally friendly
  • Lasts longer than other pipe materials
  • Requires fewer supports in plumbing installation
  • Offers flexibility for routing pipes around obstacles
  • Works well in tight spaces
  • Inhibits bacteria growth in pipes

Copper piping is more expensive than other materials used in plumbing pipes. However, it is less likely to break down and lasts longer than other types of materials, so it will last longer. In addition, copper pipes may increase the resale value of your home. For these reasons, many property owners feel that the increased cost of copper repiping is well worth the expense. In fact, one study showed that 9 out of 10 plumbers use copper in the own homes.

Signs Your Home Needs Copper Repiping

The plumbing system is the lifeblood of your home, responsible for delivering clean water and removing wastewater. Over time, however, the pipes that make up this vital system can deteriorate, leading to various issues. 

At Red Lilly Plumbing, we want homeowners to be aware of the signs that indicate the need for copper repiping. Recognizing these signs early can help you prevent costly damage and ensure the continued reliability of your plumbing system. 

These are the most common indicators that your home may benefit from copper repiping:

  • Discolored Water: One of the most noticeable signs is discolored water. If you notice that your tap water is brown, rust-colored, or has a metallic taste or odor, it may be due to corroded or deteriorating pipes. This water discoloration can also stain sinks, tubs, and appliances.
  • Low Water Pressure: A sudden or persistent drop in water pressure can be a sign of pipe deterioration. Reduced water pressure often indicates blockages, leaks, or mineral buildup in the pipes, hindering the flow of water.
  • Frequent Leaks and Repairs: If you find yourself constantly dealing with plumbing leaks or needing frequent repairs, it may be a sign that your pipes have reached the end of their lifespan. Repeated leaks can lead to water damage and costly repairs.
  • Water Quality Issues: Poor water quality, including foul odors, unusual tastes, or visible particles in the water, can be a result of degraded pipes. Copper repiping can significantly improve the quality of the water in your home.
  • Age of Plumbing System: If your home is more than 50 years old and still has its original pipes, it's likely time to consider copper repiping. Older materials like galvanized steel or iron have a finite lifespan and can become susceptible to corrosion.
  • Inconsistent Water Temperature: Fluctuations in water temperature, especially while using hot water, can indicate pipe issues. Aging pipes may struggle to maintain consistent temperature, leading to discomfort.
  • Pipe Material Concerns: Certain pipe materials, such as polybutylene or lead, have known vulnerabilities that can pose health and safety risks. Repiping with copper eliminates these concerns and provides a safer water supply.
  • Noisy Plumbing System: Unusual sounds like banging, clanking, or hissing pipes are not normal and may signal underlying issues. These noises can result from pressure imbalances or water hammer, both of which may require repiping to resolve.
  • Visible Pipe Corrosion: Inspect exposed pipes for signs of corrosion, rust, or visible deterioration. Corroded pipes are likely to fail and should be replaced promptly.
  • Poor Water Flow: If you notice that water takes longer to drain from sinks, showers, or tubs, it could indicate blockages or pipe damage. Repiping can restore proper water flow.

Recognizing these signs of plumbing system deterioration is crucial for homeowners looking to maintain the integrity of their homes and the safety of their water supply. Copper repiping can address these issues and provide a long-term solution to plumbing problems.
