We Never Think Twice About The Pipes In Our Home
Big B's Plumbing is your trusted home repiping contractor Vista, CA. If we're honest with ourselves, no homeowner ever thinks twice about their pipes until there's a problem. The copper pipes in our homes will last 40 to 50 years or longer. Some old houses dating back to the 1940s, 50s, and 60s still have steel galvanized pipes in them. On the contrary, while not common, we've seen homes that are 15 to 30 years old that need repiping. Inferior quality materials and craftsmanship are usually the culprits in those cases.

The Number One Question Is - How Do We Know Our Pipes Are Failing?
Failing pipes are most common in old houses, 40 years or older. And unlike most plumbing problems that just happen, for instance, a broken water heater, a clogged drain or a water leak, failing pipes may take years before we see the problem. The number one question is, “How do we know our pipes need replacing?” Having old pipes in our house isn't a reason to replace them, but it is something to consider. Know where you stand with your pipes and have a home pipe inspection from a Big B's Plumbing professional.
Knowing The Signs That Your Pipes Are Declining:
- You have low water pressure.
- Your pipes are steel galvanized.
- Odd noises are heard from your pipes.
- Your water looks discolored.
- You've started experiencing pipe leaks.
- Your water doesn't taste right.
The biggest problem that can occur in a pipe leak, if you haven't experienced one yet, is that the aging pipes will begin to leak. In some cases, a pipe leak is known to cause significant damage, notably if you’re not home when it happens. But for so many of us, putting off a home repipe is all about the cost. At Big B's Plumbing, we offer interest-free financing for one year on approved credit.
IT'S BEEN 60 YEARS SINCE COPPER PIPING WAS INTRODUCED
For close to fifty years our homes are piped with copper piping, even today copper is still a very reliable pipe. Properly installed, copper piping can last 40 to 50 years or longer depending on conditions such as proper water pressure and good water quality. Copper is still the first choice for many homeowners and at Big B's Plumbing, our repiping technicians still meet the demand for copper piping.
PEX IS NOW THE GO-TO PIPE FOR HOME REPIPING
It's been 60 years since copper was introduced as the replacement for steel galvanized pipes. In the mid-'90s, Cross-Linked Polyethylene Tubing, or PEX was introduced, and by the turn of the century, it became the go-to pipe for many plumbing contractors. The benefits of PEX far outweighed that of copper, and while some are still not convinced, most plumbing contractors have completed their research and are sold on the new technology. PEX is very flexible, making it easier to install, and it cost much less.
