Plumbing Repairs & Maintenance

Are you constantly spending money to repair leaking pipes? In many of these cases, a repiping service is a more efficient and economical solution.

The idea of repiping your home can be scary to many homeowners. The work involved and perceived cost can seriously dissuade anyone from investing in this service. But the fact is, repiping is often the better choice in many instances.

Signs you Should Repipe

If the idea of repiping your home is daunting, consider this: in many cases, replacing older pipes with a new, more efficient system will result in considerable monthly savings. Some signs that you need to consider replacing your pipes include:

  • Noticing a change in the colour of your water
  • Experiencing bad tasting or bad smelling water
  • Rising water bills
  • If there is a change in your water pressure

If repiping services are necessary, the experts at Cardinal Plumbing & Electric can walk you through the process and explain each step, making sure you are comfortable and confident in your decision.

PEX vs. Copper

Two main piping materials are standard in the industry. Both offer benefits and advantages such as removing any metallic taste from your water. There are, however, some differences that would make one type better over the other for certain homeowners.


  • Inexpensive to install
  • Flexible material makes it easy to install and repair if needed
  • Cannot be connected directly to a water heater
  • Sensitive to UV light and, therefore, cannot be used outside


  • Lasts longer than PEX
  • Strong and sturdy, joints will not sag
  • Is not prone to leak
  • The upfront cost to install it is more expensive

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your plumbing and electric system are part of the lifeblood that makes your house more than just a shell. Like all of us though, age and use can start to take its toll on the health and function of your piping and wiring. In many cases a small tuneup coupled with an annual checkup can prevent major disasters in the form of flooding or fires. This may sound like hyperbole but unfortunately we have seen too many cases where a devastating situation may have been prevented with a properly maintained system in place.

This is why we have created our Cardinal Care Club which provides our clients with a free annual maintenance inspection as well as a discount on services to help keep repairs and maintenance affordable and easy. Let Cardinal Plumbing & Electric maintain your home so you can enjoy your time in it with peace of mind knowing you're safe.
