A property management contacted ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing to repipe hot water lines at a home in Escondido, CA.
The ASAP technician accessed the attic. He found that the hot water line, type M copper, to be in poor condition with a lot of corrosion throughout the line. The tech recommended performing at least a partial repipe, replacing all hot water lines in the attic tapping into lines dropping in the walls to avoid cutting into the drywall.
The tech turned off the hot and cold water supply. He replaced all 3/4″ and 1/2″ hot water lines in the attic with Pex copper pipes. The water supply was then turned back on and pipes tested for leaks. There are no leaks at this time. Lastly, the tech cleaned up the work area.
