Are you about to have repiping done on your San Diego or Los Angeles home?
If so, you might not know what to expect when it’s all over. If
you have lived in your house for a long period of time, you’ve probably
gotten used to the way the water is in your home. That means you’re
going to be in for a pleasant surprise. When it comes to how your house
is going to be handled by the professionals doing the work, you may be
in for a pleasant surprise there as well.
How Will the Walls Look?
Obviously, some of the pipes are going to go through your walls. Even if
most of your plumbing is in your basement and exposed, it has to make
its way to the shower, sinks, toilet and other items at some point. When
it comes to the shower, those pipes are probably behind a wall. That means
part of the wall will have to be cut out.
Normally, if you had to call in a plumber, they wouldn’t be all that
concerned or careful with the wall because that isn’t their field
of expertise. They wouldn’t purposely damage anything, but their
priority is what’s behind the wall, not the wall itself. When it
comes to professionals who only replace old pipes with new ones, they
are used to having to carefully remove and reinstall any drywall that
might be in the way. That means you aren’t going to have to remodel
your entire house when this is over.
What Will the Water Pressure Be Like
You’re probably going to want to set aside some time to take a nice
long, hot shower. One of the first things you are going to notice is the
increase in pressure. So, you can actually get some use out of that massaging
showerhead that hasn’t been all that effective up until now.
You may also notice that your water tastes different. That’s because
it doesn’t have to make its way through all that corrosion before
it gets to you. You can stop buying bottled water and actually fill a
cup from your own faucet.
Basically, life is going to get a lot more pleasant and you aren’t
even going to have a big mess to clean up as a result. You’ll enjoy
better water pressure, tastier water, and you may even start to feel healthier
because the water you are drinking is cleaner.
