San Diego Piping & Repiping
Lasting Pipe Repair Services in San Diego and the Surrounding Areas
Piping is made to last for decades. However, this does not mean your pipes are impervious to wear and tear. It is not uncommon to have the occasional piping repair. Additionally, you will reach a point where your home needs to be repiped. Knowing when to do this can be tricky, and you want to be sure you are not wasting your money. HPS Plumbing Services can help. Our San Diego repiping plumbers have the training and experience needed to guide you when making this critical decision.
Because they see so much use, plumbing pipes must be made with durable materials that can withstand both the water running through them and the conditions of their surrounding environment. It is essential that pipes be resistant to rust and corrosion, and can withstand dramatic changes in temperature. If you are considering repiping your property, or if you are working on a new construction project, you will want to work with a plumber who is familiar with all types of piping materials and their applications, like ours at HPS Plumbing Services.
Commonly used piping materials include:
- Cast iron
- Galvanized steel
Your plumber will select piping materials based on location and what the pipe will be transporting. For example, flexible PEX piping might be used in tight spaces, because it requires fewer connections andPEX piping is less prone to leaks. Copper piping is another popular material for piping. Copper is durable, resistant to corrosion, and can be used both inside and outside.

When to Consider Repiping
If you are frustrated by the performance of your plumbing system, the problem may be in your piping. Water runs through your piping system every day. Over time, pipes can corrode, and connections become more prone to leaks. Though these problems are frustrating, they can often be fixed with quick repairs. However, if you are dealing with constant repairs, it may be time to consider repiping. Our plumbers will inspect your system and help you determine if this is the right choice for you.
You should consider repiping if:
- Your pipes are very old and made of iron or lead
- You are experiencing frequent leaks or burst pipes
- The water coming from your faucets is discolored or has rust and sediment in it
- You can see visible damage or corrosion to your piping
- You are remodeling your home, and your old piping isn't adequate
Another reason to consider repiping is if you have polybutylene pipes. Homes built between the late 70s and the mid-90s often utilized this piping material. However, polybutylene pipes are prone to bursting and do not adhere to modern building codes.
How Long Will My Pipes Last?
Depending on the material of piping used, pipes can last anywhere from 25-100 years. PVC piping tends to last anywhere from 25-40 years. Copper can last roughly 70-80 years, and Brass can last 80-100 years. If you are unsure of how old your pipes are, or are experiencing leaking or burst pipes be sure to consider repiping.
