My home was built in 1975. I have no plumbing problems yet but to play it safe I am thinking of having the entire water pipe system subjected to Ace DuraFlo using E Pipe Technology.
What do you think of this technology versus replacing all the pipes?
Tom: I don’t think you need to do it as preventative. I’d like to know what his pipes are. Nineteen seventy five was after the first gas OPEC crunch, ’73, remember that? Then ’77, it all went crazy.

Charlie: I was thrilled when we sold our house, and the home inspector came back and said, “This house has copper pipe.”
Charlie: It was built in the 80’s, though. Whoever built that house…

Charlie: I love that, the way he says, “After the fire…”
Tom: What I’m getting at is today we don’t use copper, using all these new Pex pipes, which are even better. Back then, copper was…
