Charlie: Howard in Champions says, his house was built in ’71. They have galvanized piping that’s now restricting the water flow and they’re considering repiping. What do you suggest?
Tom: Well you certainly can. Everybody can repipe if they want to. I don’t think it’s always the best choice. I think you should get several opinions and talk to the people that can give you the different options that you need, and that would be TDT. Because if you don’t want to tear your house up and you just want your pipes to be open and running free again, then the best thing to do would have a ePIPE system put in there where you sandblast all that junk out of there, put some epoxy in so it doesn’t happen again and you can keep the same pipes. You don’t have to tear up your house. TDT can tell you both ways what they can do.
Sometimes I’ve even heard that maybe a small section needs to be repiped but the rest of it doesn’t have to. So there’s a lot of different ways to handle this without having to just go to the extreme right off the bat, and that’s what I would hate to see happen.
Charlie: The good news is that TDT does both. So if you are-
Tom: That’s what I mean. They have options.
Charlie: Right. I mean if you have your heart set on repiping, you just got a thing for pex, you gotta burn and pex Jones, they can come in and do that too. So there you go.
