Corrosion of pipes is a common cause of the need for repiping due to corrosion causing rust colored water, low water pressure, leaks, and reduced water flow. If you’re planning on doing some remodeling, then it’s a good idea to look into repiping before you paint or finish your walls. It’s also important to understand the scope of the project before work is started. If you notice an isolated leak, a small portion of your existing pipes leaking, or valves that are corroded or cracked, it may be an indication of a larger problem.

Copper pipes are most commonly used for hot and cold tap water, and as refrigerant line in HVAC systems. There are two different types of copper pipes, soft copper and rigid copper. Copper tubing is joined using flare connection, compression connection, or soldering. Copper offers a high level of corrosion resistance, but is becoming very costly.
PEX is an acronym for polyethylene. It’s a flexible and durable piping product that has proven to be very reliable when used in plumbing systems, and last for more than 20 years. PEX tubing won’t pit or corrode and because of its flexibility, it also offers potential freeze protection.

Galvanic corrosion (also called bimetallic corrosion) is an electrochemical process where one metal corrodes another by electrical contact between both metals, in the presence of an electrolyte. Over time this will break down copper pipes, leading to leaks.

Copper pinhole leaks come from internal pitting corrosion of copper pipes is a rare but costly problem that leads to the formation of pinhole leaks. Although though it isn’t very clear what causes this problem, it is well recognized that the chemistry of the water going through the pipes can cause the formation of pits and eventually holes.

A pinhole leak is the final breakthrough of the continuous corrosion on copper water pipes. It’s possible for a copper water plumbing system can be in a condition of having significant damage by pitting corrosion, but not have pinhole leaks. The challenge is discovering whether there is corrosion before a pinhole leak develops.

Polybutylene piping, often referred to as “POLY” pipe. If you’re asking yourself, “What is Polybutylene?” you may want to look into whether your house or company was built with it. If the house or office building was developed between the late 1970′s and mid 1990′s, polybutylene pipes may have been used when the plumbing was done, and are most likely still in use.

What’s wrong with polybutylene pipes? The problem with poly pipes is that they have a fairly high rate of failure under typical operating conditions. Degeneration connected to chemicals in chlorine water is contented to these failures. Homes and businesses on personal dedicated water supplies, such as well water, have reported many plumbing problems as well.
