Does Your House Need Repiping?
A few leaks here and there are gonna happen over the years. Sometimes unexpected things can happen, like a persistent tree root that sneaks its way into your pipes. But a whole house repiping is something we save for when your plumbing REALLY needs it. That might mean your piping is so corroded and worn out that it’s leaking in several different places. Or it might mean that you’ve been having to spend so much for repairs that you’ve had to add a whole new category on your monthly budget. A few of the other signs that you need whole home repiping are:
You Have High Utility Bills
If you get your water bill one month and it’s twice as high as usual, that’s a pretty good indication that you have a leak somewhere in your piping. One of the first things you can do in this situation is turn off all of your taps and then go look at your water meter. If it’s still ticking, that means water is leaking.
You Notice Water Where it Shouldn’t Be
While water is something we need, we’d rather have it stay where it’s supposed to. If you notice pools of stagnant water in your yard, you see brown water spots on your ceiling, or you notice a wet spot on your carpet, there’s a good chance you have a water leak somewhere in your pipes.
You Smell Something Musty
Sometimes your nose is the first thing to know something is wrong. If you smell a moldy or musty odor and you can’t trace it back to something harmless, it’s time to look for other causes. A hidden pipe leak is one of the most common causes.
What to Expect When Repiping Your House
When you think of replumbing your whole house, you might think of a crew of plumbers coming in, tracking mud all over your floors, and talking over your head with tricky plumbing jargon. We don’t blame you if that’s been your experience of plumbing. But at Morris-Jenkins, we do things a little differently. When we come to your house for your whole home repiping, we’re gonna treat your house the same way we’d want someone treating ours. We also explain what we’re doing in a way that’s easy for you to understand. Not only that, but we’re careful about figuring out exactly where your pipes are located in your yard so we can do as little digging as possible.

Why Are Your Pipes Leaking?
If you have old piping that has been there for decades, they can be similar to a ticking time bomb. No matter how well you take care of your pipes, eventually they’ll need to be replaced. And while replumbing a whole house isn’t exactly something you’d look forward to, you can still plan ahead for it.
Galvanized steel pipes and polybutylene pipes are some of the most famous for giving out on you years earlier than you expected. They can crack and corrode and start to cause problems long before better piping materials would. That’s why when we do a whole home repipe, we’ll recommend high-quality materials like PEX.
