If the plumbing system seems to be doing its job, you might be tempted to ignore it. Maybe the system was already in place when you moved into the home, and you’ve never given it much of a thought. However, updating the plumbing is a project that eventually becomes a necessity. Drawing from 42 years in the plumbing field, Temperature Control has put together some helpful tips for when you should replace the plumbing:

When to Replace Your Plumbing

  • Lifespan of materials

    – You want to know what your pipes are made from. The lifespan of copper is about fifty years. Brass normally provides about 40 to 50 years of reliability. Cast iron remains functional anywhere between 75 and 100 years, while galvanized steel delivers between 20 and 50 years of use. PVC, a more modern option, lasts indefinitely.

  • Fittings

    – The fittings can wear out quicker than the pipes. Pipe joints are sometimes made from different materials and can wear away. The constant wear and tear on mechanical fixtures typically leads to an earlier replacement than the pipes.

  • Signs of failure

    – Look for corrosion, cracks or leaks in the pipes. Be aware of low water pressures, which can be a sign of a leak. Check crawl spaces and hidden areas where plumbing might be leaking. Don’t overlook signs of mold or musty smells. Inspect for wet baseboards, sagging ceilings, warped floors, water stains, bubbling paint and rust that indicate leaks and corroded pipes. Listen for hissing sounds inside walls. If the home is more than 60 years old, complete a thorough plumbing inspection every year.

  • Deciding when and what to replace

    – You might not be prepared to replace the entire plumbing system. Plumbing in a utility room, crawl space or basement is exposed and less disruptive to update. If you remodel the kitchen or bathroom, it can be worthwhile to take down the walls and update the plumbing. For those rooms where you don’t want to tackle a major project or cut lots of holes, consider the advantages of PEX (polyethylene tubing). The material is flexible and can snake through walls without causing damage.

  • Up to code

    – For older homes, the plumbing might be so outdated that it’s no longer up to code. If you’re debating on the right time to replace your pipes, call Temperature Control at (520) 815-5665 for an accurate and honest evaluation.

Customer Insights

Our technician, Cesar, was great! He was knowledgeable, professional, and worked very fast. We will call him again whenever a plumbing need arises, and would recommend him to our friends.

L. Rydalch

From proposal through install, Temperature Control was informative, provided excellent service and educated us on the new system. Anthony and Allen went above and beyond in providing us with a bid that included discounts applied, as well as additional ongoing services. The techs who installed our systems worked a long day, and welcomed our questions as well as educating us on system use. All involved were professional, of high quality and pleasant.

S. Wilson

We’ve had two separate experiences with Temperature Control and both were positive. Their techs know their stuff and take their time and thoroughly check everything out during their diagnostic process. I will continue using them moving forward. Jesus, the technician that came out yesterday, was just amazing!

L. Busse

Reggie and Rick did an awesome job. Everything was done on time. They cleaned everything up really well after. Any questions asked were answered/shown. Highly recommend for plumbing!

S. Leteff

Heater went out the other day and I finally called Temperature Control in Oro Valley. They sent out a senior tech Jeremy Oliver who was very knowledgeable and explained what’s was going on in laymen’s terms. He gave us multiple option on how to move forward and had us heating with in a few hours. I didn’t know they do plumbing and electrical too. Found my new one stop home repair company

I. Angelina

We experienced outstanding service today from Eddie Cervantes and Rick with Temperature Control Plumbing. This team made a service call today in response to our Sunday call to the company. They identified our hot water issue quickly, and resolved it during their call. Five star service and professionalism from both technicians!

H. Montgomery

Johnny Guerrero was an outstanding tech that delivered the most professionalism I have seen in a very long time. He was able to diagnose and perform technical services on our unit that gave our unit most up-to-date technology. Recommended for any services needed.

J. Calen

We have used TempCon for 20 years and been very happy with the level of service and the technicians. Tyler has been coming out a little less than a year and he is superb. Competent, efficient and explains what he is doing and why. The best of the best! I highly recommend this company for all your HVAC needs.
