How we repipe your home

1) You set the schedule

Contact us online or call 604-283-2383 to schedule a free consultation with our repiping experts.

2) Initial inspection

You home's plumbing system is complicated. It's important to inspect your current plumbing and plan your home repipe to ensure old piping is completely removed and your new piping is completely leak-free. During our initial visit, we'll make a detailed drawing of your home's plumbing system to ensure we provide you with a thorough repiping plan.

3) Explain your options

Repiping your home's plumbing is a large task and often involves several plumbers over 2–5 days. We want to make sure you're comfortable with your decision with working with Ashton. If you have any questions or concerns, just ask. We're here to help.

4) Repipe your home

During your repiping project, we'll protect your flooring with plastic sheeting and carpeting to prevent damage to your floors and walls. A typical repipe project requires 2 licensed plumbers over 2–5 days. During this time, we'll cleanup after each day and ensure you have running water before we finish for the day. That way, you and your family won't be disrupted during the project.

5) Final inspection

On the last day, we'll be more than happy to walk though your home with you and show you all the plumbing that was replaced. We're only happy when we exceed your expectations.

Education

What is poly-b (polybutylene) piping?
Polybutylene piping, or "poly-b" for short, is a flexible plumbing pipe material used in residential plumbing. This type of piping can be found in residential homes built from 1975 to 1998 in Metro Vancouver. It is estimated that some 700,000 homes have been plumbed using this material. This type of piping became popular because of its easy installation and low cost compared to the heavy and expensive copper piping. 

What's the problem with poly-b piping?
The main issue with poly-b piping is that once it's reaches it's "age limit" (8–15 years), the piping will start to leak, causing damage to your walls, floors and ceilings. This leak is caused by a design flaw in the material makeup of poly-b piping. If you live in an area with high levels of chlorine in the water supply, this may accelerate the failure rate of poly-b piping. Unfortunately, the failure rate of poly-b is extremely high. So, it's not a matter of if, but when. 

What should I do if I have poly-b piping?
Repiping your home from poly-b is a daunting task. However, this is an investment that may save you tens of thousands in future water damage. If you suspect you have poly-b in your home, or noticed that your piping has started to leak, call us today and speak with one of our repiping experts. We'll give you a free on-site consultation and guide you though the process.

What material should replace poly-b?
PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) has many advantages over poly-b and copper:

  • With rising copper prices, PEX is significantly cheaper than copper lines and fittings, saving you money on materials cost.
  • PEX is much easier to install and work with, which will save you on labor costs.
  • PEX is highly resistant to corrosion unlike copper, which can "pit" and "pinhole" over time due to incorrect installation or acidic water.
