Copper FittingsCopperworks Plumbing has the expertise to handle any plumbing problem in your home. Whether you need help with a simple water leak or new pipes, we will provide you with the knowledge and options to make the best choice. Pipe work is a process of refitting existing pipes in a dwelling or business. Some reasons to consider replacing your pipes may include:

  • Poor water pressure
  • Water with an unusual color or taste
  • Increasing market value
  • Frequent leaks around sink, toilet, drain or pipes
  • Exposure of pipes to freezing air
Whether or not your home still has galvanized pipes, the appearance of one or more of the symptoms described above may mean it’s time to get new copper or plastic pipes. Most structures built 25 or more years ago were fitted with iron pipes coated with zinc, normally called galvanized pipes. As the galvanized pipes age, the zinc lining tends to erode allowing rust to form. Once galvanized pipes begin to deteriorate, they need to be replaced. Most people prefer to replace galvanized pipes with copper pipes, in a process referred to as copper pipe work.
