We treat every home and building plumbing system as if it’s our own and offer financing options for affordable and manageable solutions that accommodate households, property owners, and local businesses.

Depending on the size of your home, the Gallegos Plumbing team can complete any whole-house repiping project within 1 to days, which limits the inconvenience of your home or building going without water for an extended period of time.
In old homes especially, your pipes may be approaching the end of their life cycle. If you’re unsure about how old your pipes are or what kind of pipes were originally installed in your plumbing system, a thorough inspection from a local plumbing professional will be able to provide more answers. Original plumbing systems in older homes were made with copper or galvanized steel pipes. However, copper naturally thins out over time, which causes pinhole leaks in plumbing systems. Alternatively, galvanized steel corrodes over the years, leading to low water pressure throughout your fixtures and appliances.
Add Value to Your Property With Whole-House Repiping
Since brand new pipes are leak-proof and tend to have a higher resistance to natural elements and temperature changes, they are definitely a worthwhile investment and asset to your property, increasing its value. That’s why Gallegos Plumbing offers special rates for all of our local Realtors!

When Is Repiping Necessary?
Don’t just wait for noticeable leaks before considering repiping your home or building. There are numerous signs that indicate your pipes ought to be replaced sooner rather than later, including but not limited to:
- Flakes of dark material in your water
- Odd flavors in drinking/tap water
- Dramatic decrease in water pressure
In an effort to DIY test their pipes, many homeowners and property managers are led to believe that the “Squeeze Test” is a surefire way to determine if your home or building requires repiping. The Squeeze Test entails compressing a pipe in your hand or between your fingers to look for leaks in the joint when the pipe gives a little. However, pipes with leaky joints have passed the point of no return and threaten the integrity of your structure. That’s why it’s important to contact your local professionals even with seemingly small plumbing issues–they could be hinting at larger underlying problems with your pipes.
Whole-House Repiping History
Unfortunately, no plumbing system lasts forever. Homeowners and property owners will face a variety of reasons for repiping or replacing their pipes. More often than not, as pipes age, they are prone to causing low water pressure, rusty colored water, and/or leaky pipes.
Additionally, if your home or building is located in a hard-water area, lime and other mineral deposits can cause flow problems like slow warming of water to hot or inconsistent water temperatures–which also affect the quality of your pipes over time.
Some older houses have lead pipes, which don’t corrode as easily but create health risks for residents and occupants.
In the late 1940s and early 1950s, polybutylene was a typical substance used to pipe newly built homes. While polybutylene appeared to a better, cheaper alternative to copper and other expensive piping materials, it actually degenerates faster and is prone to negative reactions with chlorine and other substances found in the water supply that cause pieces of the pipe to flake off or even wash away.
Whole-house repiping is a major endeavor for any home or building. The Gallegos Plumbing team understands that any Ventura County property owner will encounter questions at any stage of the repiping process. From the get-go, we strive to be transparent with our valued clients. Here are some of the most common questions we receive related to large-scope pipe replacement.
Why is my water leaving brown stains in my sinks and tubs?
When this happens, it is highly probable that you have galvanized pipes. As galvanized steel ages and erodes, its zinc linings can contaminate your water supply–requiring immediate attention and replacement to ensure safety.

PEX (Cross-Linked Polyethylene)
These types of pipes are engineered from a durable, flexible, high-density plastic that has quickly become a favorite for whole-house repiping. This is because PEX plumbing systems require fewer fittings and less labor to install, making them more affordable for households and businesses on a budget. It’s important to keep in mind that quality varies widely with PEX pipes..
That’s why Gallegos Plumbing only uses the Uponor PEX system–the highest quality PEX product on the market in terms of quality, safety and reliability.

This means you get a high-quality, cost-effective PEX repipe that is guaranteed for life while ensuring a 100% pristine water supply.
Original Copper Pipes
If your home or building is experiencing low water pressure, frequent leaks, or rusty/poor tasting water, it may be time to replace the pipes in your entire plumbing system with copper ones.

These copper pipes are installed by our highly-trained plumbing professionals who have years of repiping experience to ensure your new water system runs at peak performance for long-term use.
