Your plumbing system is essential to so many parts of your everyday routine. From the minute you get up and take your morning shower till the time you brush your teeth before going to bed at night, you need working plumbing equipment. This in turn means you need working pipes. Consider your pipes almost like the veins of your larger plumbing system. Without functioning pipes, you wouldn’t be able to get reliable drinking water, dispose of toxic wastewater, or even vent dangerous gasses.

Signs That Your Home May Need Repiping
Your supply and wastewater piping system will inevitably develop some leaks over time. Unfortunately, this is just a fact of being a homeowner. However, there comes a point where there are so many problems with your piping that it becomes essential for the safety and functionality of your house to have them completely replaced. Make sure your system undergoes regular plumbing maintenance and do not hesitate to call for a repair or replacement if you want your pipes to last for as long as possible. And remember, it’s always better to take care of plumbing problems sooner rather than later.
You may need to call Ponderosa for whole-home repiping in Bend if:
- You’re dealing with frequent plumbing leaks
- Your pipes are corroded/you’re seeing mineral build-up in your water
- Your water pressure is extremely low
- Your house was constructed before 1970
- You know that your pipes are made of galvanized steel or polybutylene
As indicated above, galvanized steel and polybutylene piping were popular in American homes for years before they were found to have multiple faults. Galvanized steel pipes, which were dipped in protective zinc to prevent rust and corrosion, were commonly used in houses built prior to 1960. However, it was eventually discovered that galvanized steel pipes often contain traces of lead—so if your home still uses galvanized steel pipes, not only are they probably corroded, they may also be unsafe. Polybutylene pipes were mostly used between the late ‘70s and early ‘90s. Manufactured with a plastic resin and extremely easy to produce, these pipes were seen as the logical replacement for galvanized steel until it was found that polybutylene pipes were too sensitive to withstand the average municipal water supply for long periods of time.
