Residential Water Pipe Repair and Replacement
Deritec Plumbing is who you need to call for residential water pipe repair or replacement (re-piping) in Montreal and the West Island.
Maintaining and repairing the plumbing and piping in our home prevents unsightly, unsanitary, and extremely unhealthy conditions (for example, a leaky pipe can be the root cause of mold). Over the years that many of our plumbing systems have served us well, the older galvanized water (supply) pipes corrode. Joints between pipes can leak, and pipes can corrode and leak. The most common indicator of problems with old piping are reduced water pressure and rust-coloured water.
Repair or Replace?
We can verify your water piping, and advise you on the relative value of both options: to repair or to replace.
As happens, if the pipes in your home are near the point of no return, it can be safer, wiser, and most cost effective to replace all old piping at one time, rather than to endure the mess, cost, and inconvenience of multiple partial replacements (typically following a leaky failure, often inside walls and ceilings). Some common reasons for re-piping are:
- rusty water
- leaking pipes
- reduced water pressure.
Choosing a Replacement System
One of our advisors can explain the pros and cons of the different types of piping available today. Prior to installation, we will determine how much and of what material to acquire.
Together, with our experience and based on your needs, we will determine the best method to employ to replace your old piping. Important points to consider and decide are:
- how many wall openings will be required where
- how to minimize the inconvenience to you and your family
- when and for how long will you be without running water.
Re-Routing of Pipes during Re-piping
It is often possible during re-piping to re-route pipes to your advantage, for example, to route pipes away from cold outside walls, to route hot water using a shorter path from where it is heated to where it is used (and therefore enjoying “faster” hot water). Other advantages and economies can be realized by rethinking the installation of pipes.
