At Eastpoint Plumbing and Heating, our team can complete entire pipe replacements in St. John’s for those homes and businesses with corroding, failing pipe systems.
Our pipe replacement service is useful for those structures which currently have Kitec/PlumbBetter piping. This type of piping consists of flexible aluminum pipe between an inner and outer layer of plastic pipe. In the late 1990s, Kitec/PlumbBetter piping became popular because of its easy installation process and lower price tag, but has since been recalled. It is prone to zinc buildup which can restrict water flow and cause disintegration of fittings and the pipe itself, leading to sometimes catastrophic results, like severe leaks and floods.
Similar problems can occur with old copper pipe systems. As the copper piping ages, it can corrode and degrade. The problem may begin as a small leak, but can quickly become worse as the pipe continues to age and corrode. It is best to get these problems taken care of as soon as possible to prevent a major leak or flood.
At Eastpoint Plumbing and Heating, our team can replace Kitec/PlumbBetter piping as well as degrading and corroding copper pipe systems to prevent such devastating results from happening at your home.
If you believe your home may have Kitec/PlumbBetter piping or your piping system needs replaced due to age or other damage, contact Eastpoint Plumbing and Heating. We can help you identify piping issues and help you resolve them.
