From Piping for New Construction to Piping Repairs, Our CT Plumbers Can Help

Water, Waste & Gas Piping Connecticut

Especially in the older homes of Connecticut, the pipes running through your walls and basement can be a little overwhelming. It can often be difficult to understand what leads to where and what material your pipes are made of – which can be difficult when the time for repairs and replacement creeps up or surprises you. It’s best not to attempt to cut or repair any pipes on your own unless you’re properly trained. The last thing you want to do is cause further damage or accidentally cut a gas pipe – or even worse – a sewage one.

Unsure what materials your pipes are made from? Popular metals and materials and their uses include:
  • PEX (Crosslinked-Polyethelene) These pipes are smaller, plastic, and often come in various colors. They are used for water-supply and often replace copper, cast iron, and galvanized steel pipes for their stronger durability and resistance to bursting.
  • Brass These are older, more antique-styled pipes often used for valves, smaller uses, and sometimes waste piping.
  • Cast-Iron Most often used for waste/sewage piping, cast-iron pipes are still seen in many older homes. They are difficult to repair as they require strong tools for cutting. Most newer homes are not built with cast-iron piping.
  • ABS/PVC ABS pipes are usually black while PVC pipes are white. Both are more often being used for sewage piping than cast-iron. They are more resistant to corrosion and easier to repair. They are usually thicker than water-supply pipes as they’re getting rid of sometimes much more than just water.
  • Clay and Fiber These pipes are still found in older homes for sewage and waste removal in Connecticut
  • We offer multiple services for your home renovation
  • Black Steel The most recommended for gap piping to meet Federal and State regulations, although your gas piping could be made from any of the above materials or others.
