Repair the pipe leak

If your pipe leak is small and your pipes are fairly new, repairing is most certainly the most cost-effective way to solve your problem. Watch for additional signs of repiping like water pressure drop, water is discolored by rust, appliances are not working correctly or working too slow, high water bill, water spots, and mold growth.

Repiping your whole house

If you can answer YES to the following questions, you should definitely consider looking into repiping your entire house. You can prevent a very costly pipe leak in the future.

  1. Your plumbing pipes contain Quest Pipes. (Polybutylene or Quest Pipes were used in the past before it was discovered that these pipes have an unusually high rate of failure.)
  2. You have a very acidic water
  3. Your pipes are leaking in multiple places
  4. This is not the first time that you have a pipe leak

Check for the signs that it might be a good time to repipe your entire house.
