- Rust stains on your laundry

- Low water pressure throughout the home or building
- Slab foundation wet spots

Repiping For Old Lead or Polybutylene Pipes
Lead and polybutylene pipes should always be replaced if they are still a part of your plumbing system in Bend, Oregon. They are not recognized by the building code authorities as safe in the United States. As we know, lead is a toxic poison.
These pipes are more likely to fail than about 30% to 40% of all the other old plumbing lines. Both the plastic resin used in water pipes and the lead pipes are unreliable. If your home was built from the 1970’s through the 1990’s or prior to that, it’s highly possible you need repiping. Call us today for an assessment.
