Many houses have outdated piping materials, such as polybutylene, lead, cast-iron, and galvanized steel, which can degrade over time and cause several plumbing issues.

At United Air Temp, we specialize in replacing these materials with modern, durable alternatives, giving you safer water supply pipes for your DC-area home.

Request Service Get started by filling out a service request form or by giving us a call.

Signs You Need Repiping

Recognizing when your DC home requires repiping is crucial for maintaining its plumbing integrity. Aging pipes can lead to a variety of issues that affect the condition of your pipes and your personal health.

Key signs you may need repiping include:

  • Frequent leaks: Regular leaks can be a sign of deteriorating pipes.
  • Discolored water: Brown or yellow water often suggests you have pipe corrosion.
  • Low water pressure: Reduced pressure can be caused by scale buildup or leaks.
  • Noisy pipes: Whistling or rattling sounds can indicate loose pipe fasteners or worn washers.
  • Age of pipes: Homes over 50 years old with original piping likely need an update.

If you notice any of these signs in your DC home, call United Air Temp at (202) 796-7990 to schedule whole-home repiping.

Pipe Repair vs. Pipe Replacement

It can be difficult for some homeowners to know if they need water supply pipe repair or replacement. The best solution depends on several factors, including:

  • The age of your pipes
  • Pipe material
  • The frequency and severity of your pipe problems
  • The extent of the pipe damage

While minor pipe leaks can often be resolved with repairs, some problems like corrosion and burst pipes require a comprehensive approach like repiping.

At UAT, our team can help you make the best decision for your home’s needs.

Let our friendly experts help you with your pipe repair or replacement. Call United Air Temp at (202) 796-7990 to request piping services in the DC metro area.

The life span of pipes varies depending on the material.

  • Galvanized steel pipes: 40 to 50 years
  • Brass pipes: 40 to 70 years
  • Copper pipes: 50 years or more
  • Cast iron pipes: 75 to 100 years
  • PVC pipes: 100 years or more

Frequently Asked Questions

Polybutylene piping is be prone to breakage and leaks due to its reaction with oxidants in the water supply.

This issue can lead to significant plumbing failures, making polybutylene repiping a necessary upgrade for many homes. You should always replace poly-B pipes instead of repairing them.

Polybutylene pipes are typically gray, blue, or black and can be identified by the stamped code “PB2110.”

Check for poly-B pipes if you home was built between the 1970s and 1990s.

When you’re preparing for a repipe, you need to clear the work areas, ensuring easy access to pipes.

You’ll also need to plan ahead to use a minimal amount of water during the repipe, so you may consider temporarily relocating.

The repiping process involves removing drywall to access old pipes. Your plumber will remove the old pipes and install new ones. They’ll patch or replace the drywall so it can be painted.

This job can take several days depending on the size of your home and the complexity of the job.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
