When the time comes to replace every inch of water piping in your home, be it gray poly (more in “Plastic Pipe Repair” section), copper, or another material, we are your plumbers in the Houston Area. In this process, every single inch of the previous piping (usually gray poly) is removed from the home and replaced with either Stainless Steel, PEX, or copper (upon request). Every plumbing fixture receives new re-piping; all faucets, toilets, tubs, showers, hose connections, your water heater, and every other fixture or appurtenance requiring water receives the piping of your choice. Our recommendation?
We will re-pipe in Stainless Steel, PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) or Copper if you prefer. This type of plastic water pipe is nearly identical to the black poly (more in “Waterlines” section) we use to install all of our new main water services. PEX is formulated to withstand hot water temperatures, is extremely flexible, and if you prefer, comes in red, blue, white and clear colors. We will also, if necessary, install a new pressure regulating valve, or PRV (more in “Pressure Valve installations” section) during the process.
No matter which material you choose, our complete home re-pipes are as non-invasive as possible, with minimal access holes and wall and ceiling damage. Some holes, however, are necessary to complete the installation. After all, when your house was built, the water piping was installed when there were no walls yet.
