Repairing and repiping your home or business is a critical step to fix or prevent compounding damage to your home. Whether you have galvanized or polybutylene pipes that have clogs, or leaks, your pipes could be corroded and need to be replaced.

Some common methods we use are removal and replacement of the pipes, detection and repair of minor leaks, trenchless pipelining, chemical grouting, internal pipe seals, sliplining, Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP), pipe bursting and others.

From the moment you book your appointment, our experienced team of water, sewer, and commercial plumbing specialists work bell-to-bell to fix your plumbing issues and make you feel like you’re our only customer.
Clean clear water without rust or odor
Increased water pressure allowing you to use multiple faucets at one time
Stable water temperature even when using multiple faucets at one time
Peace of mind in a sound investment into your home and lower water bills
Increased property value and distinct home selling point
First thing is to figure out why we are repiping so that when we repipe it won’t ever have to be done again. Is this due to a leak? A crack? Pipe erosion?
Second is preparation, you want to plan for having no water for a period of time and if it will be overnight you will want to make sure you are ready for it. Clearing out bathroom and kitchen cabinets is ideal but we don’t mind doing.
So its time for us to get started. We are first going to go through the home and set up our home protection. This will include carpets, drop cloths, and plastic where applicable. Now we will go through and start opening walls and ceilings as needed for access to the areas where we are repiping taking special care of your home when doing so. Then we will be removing the old piping and cleaning up all messes from this step so we can start the next step.
What’s the difference between repiping and pipe repair?
Repiping and pipe repair are both common pipe services performed to fix broken, old, or leaky pipes. Here are some basic differences between the two:
- Pipe Repair—Pipe repair is a temporary fix. It’s better for smaller issues, like infrequent, minor leaks. It involves fixing a specific section of pipe, wherever the issue is occurring.
- Repiping—Repiping is a permanent solution to a recurring issue or a larger problem. It involves completely replacing the entire piping system in your home. Repiping may involve installing new copper or PEX piping or relining the pipes with an epoxy material.
Which one do you need?
It can be hard to tell which one of the two methods is right for your home. This is why we recommend having your pipes inspected by a licensed plumber, who can determine the right cause and solution. Here are a couple of appropriate situations for each one:
- Pipe Repair—If your pipe bursts, it’s considered a plumbing emergency and will be need to be fixed as soon as possible. In these cases, a pipe repair is in your best interest, as it can provide you with a faster solution than repiping.
- Repiping—If your pipes were installed before the 1960s, they were likely made with galvanized steel piping and are prone to corrosion. You may want to consider repiping for a more efficient system. Also, if your pipes were not installed correctly or are not up to code, you’ll want to repipe.
What are some of the warning signs?
- Low water pressure in one part of your home or building
- Rusty water coming out of faucets or toilet
- Water leaking through your foundation
- Sound of water running even when faucets are closed
- Unusually high water bills

Rush Plumbing replaced our water heater quickly and for the quoted price. Never happy to have something significant call it quits in our home but working with Robert was a great experience.

Fast, friendly, professional, does the work right the first time at a very reasonable cost... Had three exterior hose bibbs replaced and all work was completed in about two hours.... Highly recommend Rush Plumbing as your first call if you need a quality plumber.

Rush Plumbing has been our lead plumbing vendor for over two years now. Our relationship started when we had a leak in our basement commercial kitchen hallway and no one was able to determine where it was coming from as it would come and go. Robert spent some time taking a look at the area and determined it was a leak from the faucet upstairs, I was highly skeptical but after he repaired the faucet, the leak never came back. Robert and his crew have always been responsive and take the time to make sure to address any of our concerns, we highly recommend Rush Plumbing for your plumbing needs.

I have used Rush Plumbing several times over many years and will continue to do so in the future. I love working with both Liz and Robert on everything from scheduling to planning and the work, and always feel my time and home are respected. I appreciate how quickly they get back to me when I reach out with questions or have had to reschedule - they are so accommodating! Recently I had my house repiped and could not be happier with the result and the work. Thank you, Rush Plumbing!

Working with Robert and Liz at Rush Plumbing was fantastic! From the time we broke ground on build-out we were able to complete the entire project in 5 months. That would not have been possible if not for the efficient work and service put in by Rush Plumbing to expedite the permitting process, install, inspections, and close-out. Thank you Rush Plumbing team!!
