Drain Repipe Plumbing Services
Drain pipes carry water out of your home and into the city sewer system. It is important that drain water be disposed of properly. Leaking pipes, water damage, clogged drains, mold growth, and accidental cross-connections between wastewater and drinking water can pose serious risks to the health and safety of your family. Older homes have either cast iron or galvanized steel lines which will eventually, corrode over time. As rust deposits build up inside, the drain becomes clogged, the pipes will eventually rust through, and the pipes will begin leaking.
Got Back Ups?
Meanwhile, the drains in your house, the sinks, and the toilets begin to back up. Underneath the house, the leaky sewage will give off a hideous odor, and if not remedied right away, it can cause significant damage to your home.
Also, if you are remodeling your home or doing a repipe, these are appropriate times to replace your plumbing drain lines with a repipe.
California Repipe Specialists will use either long-lasting cast iron, which has excellent sound-suppression quality, or durable ABS pipe, which is less costly for repiping the drains in your home.
Drain pipes are important plumbing infrastructure for maintaining the health and safety of those living in your home. Proper disposal of drain water helps protect against clogged drains, leaking pipes, mold growth, water damage, and cross connections (drain water and drinking water connections).
Properly installing a drain system protects the health and safety of the community as well. Drainage systems are most often on a gravity flow system. If you have small leaks or corrosion on your drain pipes they may not leak, or leak very little. But if a main sewer system stoppage accrues, this gravity flow line will now be under pressure and can shoot water out of small pinhole leaks or crack as if you turned on a faucet.
The following are indicators of when you need a whole home drain repipe. Old drainage systems can:
- Cause serious health risk.
- Cause sewage smell in your home.
- Be the reason of slow drains or no drains at all.

- Cause leaks from drain pipes in ceiling and walls.
- Fill the tub, shower and sink with very minimal use.
- Show symptoms of decay.
- Result in pipe splits.
