Polybutylene Pipe Replacement
Polybutylene pipes were traditionally very inexpensive and easy to install, which explains their popularity from 1978 to 1995. Poly was used in both “overhead” and “underground” installations. Industry experts believe that poly was used in 6 to 10 million homes during this period.
Repairs to polybutylene pipe systems should be made on a temporary, emergency basis only, because once you have a leak, it is only a matter of time before they manifest. The only real solution to correct ploy defects is to have the home completely re-piped to eliminate the system totally.
Galvanized Steel Pipe Replacement
Galvanized iron pipes are those that have a galvanized coating applied to it. The problem with galvanized pipe is, even though it is coated, it is still a steel pipe with water running through it. Everyone knows what happens to a shovel or steel wrench that is left outside during a rain storm, it rusts. The same thing is going to happen to steel pipe. Eventually the steel pipe is going to deteriorate due to rust, and leaks will occur.
Repairs to galvanized pipes can be done, but it is not uncommon for additional problems to creep up. In the long run, re-piping the system may be your best solution and our professionals are the right team for this job!
