How Do I Know When I Should Repipe My House?
The leading cause of rust is corrosion. Corrosion is the chemical reaction that occurs when iron within metal pipes gets exposed to the oxygen in the water. The reaction forms rust which eats away at the pipe, changing the chemical makeup and making the pipe more brittle. It happens with Galvanized pipes. To avoid any health issues it is recommended to re-pipe the full house
Unfortunately, the brass Kitec fittings allowed a chemical reaction to take place which eventually weakened the fittings causing them to fail. Similar problems caused the pipes to fail. The failure can cause water leakage and flooding in homes resulting in severe property damage. Statistical information suggests that it is not a matter of if the Kitec will fail but rather when the Kitec will fail.IS KITEC INSTALLED IN MY HOUSE?Kitec pipe was manufactured in two colors: blue for cold water and orange for hot water. The side of the pipe is typically marked “IPEX” and the fittings, stamped “Kitec”, may be recognized by looking at the pipe and fittings. Kitec pipes were used in homes starting in 1995. The first fitting recalls occurred in 2005, which suggests that the average life expectancy is somewhere short of 10 years.SOLUTION?Contact Super Brothers Plumbing Heating & Air if you think you have Kitec plumbing. We Offer free consultation and examination of your current situation. Full repipe is the only true solution to this problem.
A water leak may occur due to the age of the pipes, poor quality of installation, defective materials or drilling a pinhole in the wall to hang a picture for example; sometimes could even happen from rats chewing through the pipes in the crawlspace or attic. Depending on the cause of the problem, Super Brothers can determine whether it is possible to repair it or if you will need to replace all the pipes in the house.
You can’t take a shower properly because water is barely running from your shower. Mineral buildup clogs pipes over time and causes the water pressure to go down, as there’s less space for water to go through. It usually happens when you have old galvanized pipes in your house. If you do have galvanized pipes, the recommendation will be to repipe the house.
There are a lot of recycled copper products in the market that can compromise and cause home flooding. Since we have warranty for our repipe, we can’t afford to use cheap products. Copper comes in several grades (M,L,K and more). Copper pipe has the highest pressure and temperature ratings of all domestic water pipe options.
Pex is resistant to freezing, meets most codes, can handle any normal domestic water temperature and application, pressure resistant, adaptable, flexible, shares many fittings with copper and so may be mixed into copper systems.

We had a whole house repipe done by Super Brothers and could not be more pleased with their professional work and customer service attitude.
We had a whole house repipe done by Super Brothers and could not be more pleased with their professional work and customer service attitude. They draped off the areas where they needed to cut sheetrock and kept the mess to a minimum. Always cleaned up completely at the end of the day and arranged for running water available to at least a lavatory and toilet each night.
They always let us know when the city water supply had to be shut off with an estimate of how long it was likely to be off. We live in Davis with “meticulous” building inspectors and Super Brothers work passed inspection on the initial visit. We hope our plumbing issues are behind us now, but will call Super Brothers in the future for any plumbing we need done.
I waited months for this contractor for a whole house repipe in copper.
I waited months for this contractor for a whole house repipe in copper. I could feel from first visit that he knew all that was needed to do my job and many others. He did several important things that were not in the contract at no charge. He can work alone as well as with help and leave your home perfectly clean. The job was done perfectly including installation of new water heater which required some extra mods to the enclosure. I don’t know which was better his fair price or the friendly respectful attitude.
We just completed a house repipe and new sewer line install.
We just completed a house repipe and new sewer line install. We had three estimates. Super Brothers (Dimitar) was the most knowledgeable estimator. We appreciated his honest recommendations and he gave us an estimate much less than the other two. We felt very confident in using Super Brothers. We were not disappointed. The installers were very professional and they took pride in their work. The after service follow up was thorough. Bottom line. We got a quality job, from an honest company, for a very reasonable price. We have recommended them to our family and neighbors.
