Replace Your Aging Plastic Pipes with Reliable Copper Plumbing

Polybutylene plumbing products were introduced to the market in the 1980s as the inexpensive alternative to copper plumbing. However within a few years, numerous failures of the fittings were reported, and numerous lawsuits against the builders and manufacturers of the plumbing products resulted. Once the Polybutylene fittings began to deteriorate, multiple leaks and failures throughout the plumbing system were common. Other inexpensive plastic pipes such as PVC have been introduced and used extensively, but PVC is often restricted to cold water carrying pipes only. Hot water temperatures can deteriorate PVCfittings over time. Homeowners who discover they have PVC hot water pipes are often advised to replace them with copper pipes and fittings.

Installing copper plumbing often increases the value of the home. Copper pipesare biostatic, which means that copper inhibits bacterial growth. Therefore the water is safer to drink. Copper pipes are more resistant to flame than PCV pipes. Copper pipes will withstand earthquakes better than other pipes. Copper plumbing is preferred by homeowners and people in the market to buy a home.

George Davis Plumbing installs all copper plumbing systems. A typical re-piping project will include angle stops, supply lines, water pressure regulator, recessed ice maker valve box, recessed laundry water valve box, and drywall, texture, and paint repair.
