Forbes Plumbing repiping service

As pipes age, they will rust, corrode, and break. When this happens, you may notice your water pressure diminishing and the taste of your water changing. Fortunately, you can take action by having your pipes replaced before they get to this point. 

We at Forbes Plumbing have been providing plumbing repipe services to the Portland OR and Salem OR area for more than 49 years. We’ll quickly repipe your home and get rid of the corroded, outdated plumbing. 

Signs You Need a Pipe Replacement

  • Discolored water
  • Odorous water
  • Poor tasting water
  • Noisy plumbing 
  • Reduced water pressure 

If your home has old steel pipes, this is another reason you’re due for a pipe replacement. Steel pipes often include zinc coatings and lead solder in the pipe joints, which can end up in your water as they start to deteriorate. Metal in your drinking water is unhealthy, so contact a plumber immediately if you notice any of these signs. 

Plumbing Repiping Solutions

When it comes to repiping your home, you generally have two options: copper pipes and cross-linked polyethylene, called PEX. 

Copper Pipes

Copper pipes have been used for decades, and last around 50 to 70 years. They’re durable, corrosion-resistant, and provide naturally antibacterial benefits, making them an excellent choice for plumbing. 

PEX Pipes

PEX pipes have become increasingly popular in recent years because they’re highly flexible and can use the same supports and hangers as copper pipes. Water is also less likely to freeze in PEX pipes, and because of their expansion capabilities, they help prevent pipe bursting in frigid temperatures.
