Monterey Piping & Repiping

We Specialize in Sewer Line Installation

Are you struggling with clogged drains or aging, leaking pipes? Are your sewer lines backing up?

If you’re wondering whether to repipe only the worn sections of your home’s plumbing system or to invest in replacing the entire system, there are a few things to consider.

Contact After Hour Plumbing & Drain today for reliable Monterey piping and repiping services.

What Does Repiping Mean?

Repiping is the replacement of one or more aged or leaking pipes. If your home was built before the 1970s, your entire plumbing system will probably need to be replaced, including the water supply and the drain lines.

How Long Does It Take to Repipe a House?

A single-family home with two bathrooms and a raised foundation usually takes 1 to 2 days to repipe. A three-bathroom house, which usually has two stories, requires more materials and labor, which can take 2 or more days to complete. The choice of piping material also affects the hours of labor and the cost of materials.

How Much Does It Cost to Repipe a House?

For a typical 1,500 square foot, two-bathroom home when replacing all of the pipes using copper, the project can cost between $8,000 and $10,000. PEX pipes are a less expensive option, ranging between $4,000 to $6,000. Labor costs can be higher or lower depending on the type of piping and the ease or difficulty of working with different materials.

Which Material Is Best for Repiping?

With all the options for piping on the market, our professional Monterey plumbers at After Hour Plumbing & Drain can help you make the best choice for your home and budget. Whole-house repiping must conform to the local Monterey County codes, and often, the best balance of cost and durability uses a combination of piping materials based on their function, the environment, the location of the pipes, and the price.

  • Copper or brass – Copper is lighter and more flexible than steel, and it is a natural material with biostatic advantages. These pipes resist rust very well as long as they contain 67-85% copper. Brass pipes are an alloy of copper and zinc, making them easier to thread than steel, and have proved an excellent choice for hot water systems.
  • CPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) – Among a variety of plastic pipes available, CPVC is highly recommended. Because it is longer-lasting than basic PVC, it is widely used and cost-effective. CPVC withstands high temperatures and is suitable for hot water lines as well as drain lines.
  • PEX (Crosslinked Polyethylene) – PEX is a longer-lasting alternative to CPVS. Working with PEX is easier in tight spaces due to its flexibility. PEX pipes are also better at resisting heat loss, making them an ideal choice for hot water lines.
  • ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) – ABS piping is commonly used for drainage, waste, and vents. It is an ideal material to use with outdoor plumbing lines because it is both heat- and impact-resistant.
