Replacing Kitec Pipes

Kitec is an alternative plumbing pipe that was popular between 1995 and 2007. It is used to move potable hot and cold water to the different fixtures inside homes. It can be easily recognized by its bright orange and blue colors. The brass fittings that were used in Kitec systems were especially high in zinc content. When water interacts with these fittings, the zinc content is reduced and, over time, can cause catastrophic failures. These result in flooding, water damage, and above all else, unwanted stress and headache. Even if your Kitec system is plumbed correctly, many systems across the nation have failed due to this zinc reaction. Luckily, we can inspect your home for any replacement needs related to Kitec plumbing. We specialize in Kitec removal and replacement with much more reliable and safe plumbing systems, such as Copper and PEX.

Copper and PEX Repiping

There are several options for your galvanized pipe or Kitec replacement, some of the most popular being copper and PEX repiping. Our technicians will examine your home or building to ensure what the best option is for you. Most people wait too long to repipe their home or facility, ignoring the signs of corroded and damaged pipes. When there is a big loss of water pressure or a metallic taste in your water, it’s a common indicator that you will need repiping.

If you ignore your damaged pipes, it may result in a leak or failure that causes mold or mildew in your walls, costing you more money in extensive repairs.

When you allow us to repipe your water pipes with clean copper or PEX pipes, it will dramatically increase your water pressure and quality. Depending on the size of the property and the amount of corrosion, we may be able to complete the job in just a few short days. Copper and PEX repiping also prevent future plumbing problems, saving you time, money, and stress. You will also notice a more responsive time for hot water, allowing you to enjoy showers and other uses of hot water on a regular basis without wasting tons of water waiting to reach your desired temperature.
