What is Pex Repiping?
As pipes age over time they need to be replaced because they rust and begin to fall apart. Years ago pipes were fitted with galvanized pipes because this was the standard building practice and code of materials used. Now when these types of pipes age, they have a zinc lining that erodes and allows rust to form throughout the pipe from the inside outward.
Once galvanized pipes begin to rust, they will need to be replaced to keep your family safe.
And the most preferred type of pipe to be used when repiping is done is to use pex pipes because they will last for years and years to come.
