When to Consider Professional Repiping Services

It is normal to need a pipe repair now and then but when the frequency of the repairs increases and the costs begin to rise, it could be a sign that it is time for repiping. The term refers to the process of replacing all the hot and cold water pipes. 

Some common signs announcing that it’s time for repiping a house are: 

  • The current piping is more than five decades old
  • Minerals and/or rust are building up in the water
  • Pipes break down and start leaking frequently

What Our Repiping Specialists Can Do for You

When you notice any of the abovesigns, the best strategy is to consult with repiping specialists. They will confirm if repiping is really necessary, explain what the process entails in your specific situation, and estimate the costs. 

Generally, repiping a house can take from several days to one week. However, the works can be scheduled to allow you to clear the path, ensure adequate protection for your furniture and carpets, and ensure minimum disruption of your routine. Further works, like water heater installations, sink replacement, etc., can be performed as well. 

How Much Does Repiping Cost?

The cost of repiping a house depends on several factors, such as: 

  • Structure size
  • Distance from the water supply mainline
  • Number of bathroom and fixtures
  • Type of materials used (copper repiping involves different costs than repiping with PEX)

For example, the average copper repiping cost for a 1500 square feet home is $7,000, while repiping with PEX would cost close to $6,000. But, as mentioned above, there are many variables involved. To assess the financial implications, your best bet is to schedule an inspection with a company with experience in repiping, like Ben Manis Plumbing.

After repeated attempts by amateurs to fix an issue with my washing machine, they came out and removed the old hook up connection and replaced it with a new, less complicated outlet box. Once completed the washer still was not working; they took the time to diagnose the issue and were able to resolve the problem. Very pleased and will hire again.
Excellent customer service! Exceptional and friendly service and great price! Was quite a bit later than the appointment time of 10 AM but I did tell them any time was fine [i was in no rush]. They did call me a number of times to inform me as to when they would be here. David came, introduced himself [very nice]. Had to replace some parts inside the toilet which I already had and reset the toilet [as the bolts anchoring the toilet to the floor rusted out [toilet wobbling]. Replaced wax ring and bolts! Toilet now good as new! Will definitely use Ben Manis Plumbing in the future !
As a Realtor I sold a house to a young couple, where the seller was supposed to remedy the water pressure. After settlement, the water pressure was still low so I sent Ben Manis over. Ben found that the water meter was missing! The home inspector and seller's plumber both missed it. Needless to say, the water authority was there within 20 minutes to install a meter. If it weren't for Ben, the buyers could have been sold a $1500 water pressure system and would have possibly faced fines and back bills when the water department finally caught up. Honesty, integrity and attention to detail are hard to find. No one is perfect but Manis Plumbing is the best there is.
Called Sunday person that answered the phone was very professional. I told her the problem and explained it wasn't an emergency. They called me Monday morning and within an hour or two the problem as handled for a very reasonable cost. Really great workers very friendly and courteous. Very good company I'm glad I hired them
The plumber was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had a stopped kitchen sink which has a garbage disposal on it. He explained in details about my concerns about how garbage disposals work, and also explained what should and should not go in them. He accessed the problem and within a few minutes he had unclogged my drain. And, he cleaned my sink out which he didn't have to. I am very happy with Ben Manis Plumbing service as well as the plumbing technician, Eric Mendez.
Christopher of Ben Manis appeared on time, was extremely polite and efficient, explained what needed to be done and then proceeded to complete the repair. He cleaned up afterwards and left the area in excellent condition. I would highly recommend this company, and particularly, Christopher most heartily.
