Repiping for Turbo Home Services
Completely replacing all the water supply pipes in your home is known as whole house repiping. This extensive project is necessary when all the pipes are failing. Our plumbers will reroute and replace old galvanized, polybutylene, and cast iron pipes with new copper or PEX piping. Whole house repiping improves water flow, eliminates leaks, and prevents future burst pipes.
If only certain sections of your plumbing system need repairs, partial repiping is a cost-effective solution. Our technicians will identify the problematic pipe sections and just replace those parts. Common candidates for partial repiping include the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, and exterior hose bibs. Partial repiping is less disruptive and takes less time than a full replacement.
PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) is the top choice for repiping pipes today. PEX is flexible, durable, and resistant to temperature changes and chemicals. Our plumbers use PEX for a long-lasting piping system. We handle PEX repiping projects of all sizes and repurpose existing pipes when possible to reduce costs.
Pipe bursting is an efficient trenchless method for replacing pipes. Our technicians use a machine to burst the old pipe apart from the inside while simultaneously pulling new pipe behind it. This limits digging and destruction to walls/floors. Pipe bursting allows our plumbers to repipe quickly with minimal disruption to your home.
Several factors affect repiping costs, including the piping type, house size, and access to pipes. We provide free estimates for repiping so you know the exact costs upfront. Turbo Home Services offers transparent, competitive pricing and works to keep your repiping costs reasonable.
Frequently Asked Questions
The main reasons homeowners need repiping include corroded galvanized or cast iron pipes, leaky polybutylene pipes, loss of water pressure, discolored water, and frequent clogs/bursts. Repiping replaces damaged pipes to resolve these issues.
Our plumbers perform a thorough inspection to determine if repiping is right for you. We check pipe materials, leaks, water pressure/flow, pipe condition, and signs of corrosion. If your home is over 25 years old, repiping may be needed.
Indications your home needs repiping:
– Visible corrosion on pipes
– Frequent clogs or bursts
– Leaks causing water damage
– Drop in water pressure
– Discolored/smelly water
– Excessive noise when water is run
– Higher than normal utility bills
Our technicians will diagnose the root cause if you notice any of these issues. Repiping often solves them.
The time required depends on factors like house size, piping layout, and chosen repiping method. Partial repiping of a few problematic areas can take 1-2 days. Whole house repiping averages 3-5 days but can take 1-2 weeks for larger homes.
We have multiple crews available and work efficiently to complete repiping projects as fast as possible. Disruption to your home is minimized.
To reduce repiping costs, consider:
– Partial vs whole house repiping if only some pipes are problematic
– Fewer pipe material upgrades
– Using pipe bursting instead of replacing accessible pipes
– Limiting drywall/flooring demolition when possible
– Repurposing existing pipes in good condition

Repiping is a valuable investment if your pipes are failing. Paying to replace a few problematic pipes now prevents much larger emergency plumbing repairs down the road. New pipes will last decades with proper maintenance.
Repiping also improves your home’s value. It eliminates leaks, restores water pressure, and gives home buyers peace of mind. The costs are usually recouped when selling your home.
