Whole House Repipe Phoenix, Arizona
Most plumbing problems can be solved by repairing discrete pipes, fittings, drains and fixtures. Occasionally, though, it is more economical to repipe an entire building. A good example would be an old Maricopa County home plumbed with cast iron pipe, which is notorious for failure due to corrosion. In addition to leaks, cast iron pipes frequently clog because of rust, and their deteriorating walls are susceptible to damage caused by tree roots.
Repiping the Whole House
A whole house repipe is often a better solution than spending the money to repair recurring individual problems. It provides a permanent solution to a myriad of plumbing problems, including leaks, mold, clogs and structural damage. Over time, a whole house repipe will save you both money and aggravation. Other benefits of repiping the whole house include better water pressure, a safer water system and an increase in your home’s market value.

The Process of Replacing Pipes
The amount of time required to perform a whole house repipe will depend on the size of your home and the number of bathrooms. It will also depend on whether your home has a crawl space or was built on a slab. To minimize disruptions to your family’s busy schedule, we will be replacing pipes in one area at a time so that other portions of your home continue to function in a normal manner.
ASAP Plumbing specializes in repiping the whole house with cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipe. PEX pipe is a relatively new type of pipe that is far superior to other plastic pipes as well as to cast iron, galvanized steel and lead pipes. Its cross linking provides extra strength and resistance to chemicals. It is also less susceptible to cracks. PEX is approved for water service lines, residential and commercial hot and cold water plumbing and reclaimed water piping. Replacing old, deteriorating pipes with PEX pipes will ensure that your home plumbing system has been upgraded to the highest standard.

YOUR PIPE CHOICES
The main choice is between metal that is hard to install but more durable and various types of plastic that are less expensive. All permitted plastics have been thoroughly and extensively tested to have no adverse health effects. For hot and cold water lines, the main choices are copper and PEX.
- New copper pipes are the “gold standard” for water quality and long service life. But they’re expensive, and not for underground or within-slab use (sometimes developing pinhole leaks.)
- PEX — cross-linked polyethylene — is roughly 1/3 the cost of copper. It’s flexible, making it easy to install and freeze resistant. Its use results in far fewer joints and it simply doesn’t corrode. Lifetimes for premium products can be over 50 years if not exposed to direct sunlight. Also, in comparison to copper repiping, there’s reduced water noise and it’s 100% lead-free.
- ABS (a mixture of different plastics) has been approved for drain, sewer, and vent lines since the mid-1970s.
- CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) is a long-lasting plastic approved in most areas for hot and cold water lines.
- HDPE (high-density polyethylene) is approved for use in many locations.
- PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is also long lasting, but with hot water, it’s vulnerable to cracking and releases toxins. It should never be used for drinking water lines but is sometimes chosen for drains and irrigation systems.
