If you’re experiencing frequent or recurring leaks in your home, you may consider replacing your plumbing system. This process, also known as a whole house repipe, is common in Pacific Northwest homes built before 1995.
The most common cause of frequent leaks is an old or sub-par plumbing system. Many older homes are plumbed with polybutylene or Quest piping, which has been discontinued due to it’s poor quality. Older homes may contain copper pipe or even lead pipe, which can be dangerous to your health.
