A Note About Pipes

The plumbing materials used in homes vary depending on their construction year. Modern systems typically feature brass, copper, or PVC pipes, whereas older buildings may have used cast iron, lead, or galvanized steel. Brass, cast iron, and galvanized steel have a lifespan of 80 to 100 years, while copper lasts for 70 to 80 years. PVC piping, on the other hand, has a shorter lifespan of 24 to 50 years.

Old home plumbing

Have an Old Home or Unique Plumbing Needs? Here's How We Can Help:

RPZ Testing & Certification

Older homes may have outdated backflow prevention devices that do not meet modern standards. RPZ stands for Reduced Pressure Zone, which is a type of backflow prevention device. Our RPZ testing and certification services ensure that your backflow prevention device is working correctly and meets the latest safety regulations.

Leaky Lead Drain Lines

Lead drain lines were commonly used in older homes, and over time, they can develop leaks, causing water damage and potential health risks. Our plumbers are skilled in detecting and repairing leaky lead drain lines to ensure your plumbing system is safe and efficient.

Boiler Heating System Repair

Many older homes use boiler heating systems, which require regular maintenance and repairs to ensure they are working efficiently. Our team of experienced plumbers is equipped to handle boiler heating system repairs, from minor issues to major overhauls.
