David Brown, owner of Seattle's Fox Plumbing and Heating, explains how to know when to replace or repipe your older Seattle or King County home.
The main problem with plumbing in older homes is galvanized water pipe. Aging pipes get restricted, discoloring the water and seriously affecting the water pressure.
You can put up with this for a while, but then you just cannot function with the limited water pressure in your tubs and showers and you have to replace the pipes.
Fox Plumbing and Heating will give you an estimate to upgrade and update your pipes to high-grade plastic piping called PEX, a modern product that we think is superior even to copper. It’s also much more economical than copper.
We’ll also assess your water service line that runs from your meter out to the street. If that also needs updating, we can use our new process called Trenchless Technology. This up-to-date procedure eliminates the need to tear up your property to install new pipes; now we can tunnel-bore underground to create a tunnel for pipes. It’s faster, cleaner, and cheaper than the old methods.
