Replacing Galvanized Pipe

Specializing in the replacement of galvanized steel pipes in multifamily residences

Between 1900 and 1965, the installation of steel galvanized pipes for water supply was a prevailing choice. Its’ life expectancy is approximately 50 years. At the time, that seemed like a long time. But we have learned that there are many things that can affect the longevity of a galvanized piping system, such as location and cleanliness of the water supply in terms of chemical makeup. Replacing galvanized pipes has become a reality for many property owners.

Over time, metal pipe corrodes from contaminants and chemicals in the water, as well as the pH of the water and the water chemistry employed by the utility. This corrosion leads to pitting, pinhole leaks, and finally catastrophic failure.

If your multifamily residence is experiencing higher than normal water bills, it may signify leaks in areas that are not visible, such as under concrete slabs or underground. Once leaks start, they tend to accelerate. Worse still, leaking pipes decrease a property’s value. Replacing galvanized pipes could help you restore property value.

We specialize in a turnkey galvanized pipe replacement service that starts with a comprehensive site evaluation, estimating and budgeting, and scheduling. To make life easier for the residents, we also provide a resident communications package customized to meet the specific needs of the project.

SageWater definitely lived up to their credentials! I was amazed at the workmanship and professionalism... Even though the new pipes are hidden by the sheetrock and no one can see the work to appreciate it, the new pipes were installed with great care and precision. Something only a Construction Manager can appreciate.
