Pipe Replacement Services in Littleton, MA

Every pipe, connector and line in your home is an important part of the system that keeps your home running every day. Drains, fresh water pipes, hot water systems, and everything in between must run smoothly day after day to keep your family clean, provide fresh drinking water, and remove waste from your home efficiently. But, for most homeowners, pipes are the last thing on their mind. Unless the pipes are banging or bursting, they are not a problem, and yet the older they get, the greater the risk is of having severe pipe issues.

Basnett Plumbing, Heating & AC provides a full range of repiping services for customers living in the MetroWest area. This includes basic repiping of aged and remodeled fixtures all the way through full repiping of an entire home.

Littleton MA Plumbing Tip

Our experts are well–versed in local regulations so we can make sure that your plumbing stays up to code. Call us today to learn more about our repiping services!

Piping Problems

Most piping issues do not raise an eyebrow for homeowners until it is too late. When the pipes burst or they start to leak or sediment starts to appear in your drinking water in greater concentration – that is when you take a look at the pipes.

However, there are other problems that might occur that you likely have no idea about. To start with, old iron pipes are common in homes built in the earlier parts of the 20th century. However, those iron pipes have a tendency of rusting, flaking and chipping, leaving behind residue in your water, staining your fixtures and even damaging the connectors between your pipes.

Pipe Replacement Options

The most recommended type of repiping material is copper. Copper piping is cost efficient, does not leach into your drinking water and is generally easy to install. Copper rusts much slower than iron as well, meaning it will last for decades. Without the common red flaking residue that appears around fixtures, in your sink or even in your drinking water, copper is a popular choice for many home owners.

For this reason, many people choose to replace their pipes not just because of a leak or because of a recent burst or other issue, but because the new pipes will alleviate future issues.

This can also be an opportunity to make other upgrades to your piping including better insulation and pipe layout, upgraded valves (to reduce the risk of swelling or unwanted sounds), and much more. One of our trained plumbing technicians can help you determine what options will serve you and your family best during a repiping project.
