We did some research to see what was more common knowledge about home plumbing specifically about the term pipe replacement or repiping.
Turns out that both terms, “pipe replacement” and “repiping,” are used in the discussion of replacing pipes or rerouting plumbing pipes in a home, and they are often used interchangeably.
- Pipe Replacement: This term generally refers to the removing and replacing a specific section or individual pipes within the home plumbing environment. It could be done in response to a leak, damage, or another issue in a particular area. You the homeowners might opt for pipe replacement when dealing with a localized problem without replacing all the pipes.
- Repiping: Repiping is a more comprehensive term and often involves replacing the entire spectrum of pipes or a significant portion of it. This is a larger-scale project that aims to upgrade or replace the majority of pipes in your home. Repiping is usually considered when the existing plumbing is old, deteriorating, or prone to frequent issues. We think repiping is more of a plumber term at the end of the day but call and let us know you want to make an appointment!
