Whole-House Repiping in Pensacola & Panama City
When your home plumbing springs a leak, you can often repair the pipe or replace the faulty section. However, when plumbing problems crop up with regular or increasing frequency, repiping may be necessary.
In homes built before 1970 or those that use galvanized steel pipes, whole-house repiping is an almost certain necessity, but many newer homes that use shoddy materials or were built poorly may need repiping as well.
Peaden provides the Florida Panhandle and Alabama Gulf Coast with top-tier plumbing services, including whole-house repiping.
If you’re concerned about your plumbing system, don’t hesitate to call (855) 557-7878 for more information or to set up a consultation.
What Are the Signs You Need To Repipe Your Home?
It can be hard to tell if you need your whole house repiped. While an expert can best evaluate the situation with an inspection, there are several signs you can look for on your own, including:
- Recurrent water leaks
- Repeated clogging
- Discolored water
- Deteriorating water pressure
- Noise from the pipes
Any of these signs indicate that you should call a trusted plumbing professional like Peaden to assess the condition of your piping. Note that the Florida Panhandle and Alabama Gulf Coast contend with excess humidity that can accelerate corrosion even if your pipes are not very old.

The Different Types of Home Piping
When repiping your home, there are several materials your contractor may choose from. Homes built before the 1970s used galvanized steel that is not particularly durable and is quite vulnerable to corrosion. If your home was built before the 1986 Safe Drinking Water Act, you may have lead pipes that are dangerous to drink from. Today’s piping comes in three main varieties:
- Copper: The highest industry standard, copper comes with the highest cost and most difficult installation. However, it is very durable and offers antibacterial qualities that make it a good investment.
- PEX: This new type of piping is lower in cost than copper yet almost as durable. It is also easier to install, as it can bend around corners.
- CPVC: An update to PVC piping, CPVC is corrosion-resistant and resistant to the chlorine water companies use to kill bacteria in water before it enters your home.
Your contractor will explain the specifics of each piping type and may suggest a combination of materials to fit your budget. There are also situations in which your whole home may not need repiping, such as if the sewer mains are made of copper that’s still good but connected to steel pipes that are deteriorating.
The experts at Peaden will assess your home and tell you if you need to replace your entire plumbing system or if only partial repiping is required.
