Who are you going to trust in Florida when repiping

your home or building?

In Florida, Delta Mechanical operates under the incorporated name of Florida Delta Mechanical, Inc. Our office is located in Brandon but serves the whole state of Florida.

Specializing in Repipes, Florida Delta Mechanical’s Repipe Division is the states largest and most experienced provider of True Turnkey Polybutylene Pipe Replacement. While we don’t do other things that a general service plumbing provider would such as; new construction, installation of sewers, or drain repair, we do offer the most experience of any company in Polybutylene or Defective Pipe replacement, working in finished and usually occupied structures anywhere in Florida. There is a huge difference. We know how to protect your home, create the least amount of muss and fuss, we keep the water in your home operating during our Repipe, since we specialize we don’t have to have oversized “one size fits all” equipment, and working directly with homeowners, we know how to get the job done right and to the satisfaction of the customer.

In Florida we have a unique problem with Copper pipes corrosion. The internal pitting corrosion of copper pipes is rare but costly problem that leads to the formation of pinhole leaks. Pinhole leaks are a major concern to homeowners as may lead to loss of water resources from undetected leaks in pipes that are in the slab foundation or result in highly variable amounts of water damage. A Copper plumbing system can be in a condition of having significant damage by pitting corrosion, but not have any pinhole leaks. Sometimes it could be a change to discover the pitting corrosion before a leak develops. In Florida we recommend that home owners repipe the entire house with CPVC Flow Guard Gold to ensure that they can have peace of mind with there domestic water system.

Besides repipe of Polybutylene, we also replace old or defective potable plumbing systems such as Galvanized, Copper, Kitec, and PEX systems with certain brass insert fittings that have proven defective. Additionally, we also offer a full range of installations to update fixtures such as low flow toilets and faucets, Pressure Balanced shower valves, tankless or hybrid water heaters, not to mention storage tank water heaters and more. We are also licensed contractors for the Abatement and disposal of Asbestos.

What is a Repipe?

A single family home repipe is a complete replacement and/or bypass of the existing water distribution system beginning at the transition point between the exterior and interior service pipe and terminating at the various fixtures within the residence. Our turnkey service includes replacement of all pipe fittings, stop valves and supply lines as well as the replacement of any drywall extractions necessary to access the current pipelines and/or used to install the new bypass pipelines. This non-invasive procedure also includes drywall re-finishing, computer-aided paint matching, painting of the affected areas, and patching, texturing, and painting of ceiling areas that are used for access to the existing pipes and/or for the replacement pipes.

Why do you need it?

  • Do you have Polybutylene, old Galvanized, or corroded Copper pipes in your home?
  • Have you had leaks in your plumbing?
  • Do you have slab leaks?
  • Do you experience low water pressure?
  • Do you get rust colored or yellow water?
  • Do you have reddish or bluish stains in sinks, tubs, or toilets?
  • Do you want to prevent all of the above from happening?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, a repipe is the only permanent solution for the defective piping system. Leaks are the most prevalent problem with Polybutylene, but just the presence of Polybutylene will cause diminished property value as no one wants to buy a flood waiting to happen. If you have old Galvanized ore corroded Copper pipes, low water pressure at a faucet, shower, washing machine or elsewhere can be caused by the buildup of rust and corrosion on the inside of the water pipes. As these pipes age, the rust and corrosion continues to build, restricting the flow of water more and more. Rusty or discolored water is caused by the calcification and corrosion from the inside of the pipes combining with the water flowing through the pipes. This usually indicates an advanced stage of corrosion in the pipes. Leaks are most commonly caused by corrosion; the chemicals caused by the reaction of the water and the metal, in the form of rust which, over time, eats or wears away the pipes. Iron water pipes coated with zinc to prevent rusting and corroding are called galvanized iron. As galvanized iron pipes age, the zinc coating gradually wears away, exposing the iron. The unprotected iron rusts rapidly in the presence of water. Most residences built pre-1970 were plumbed with this type of piping and will require repiping. Essentially, patching your defective piping system will lead to more leaks as the pipes that were not replaced will continue to fail. This will also result in additional cost, equaling or exceeding almost double the cost of having a complete repipe. With the surfacing of various legally driven issues; problems such as black mold and chronic health concerns, concerns of having a defective piping system have gone from nuisance to a liability nightmare. A complete repipe is the solution that will prevent this nightmare and issues with your insurance company all while increasing your property value.

How is it done?

A typical single family home repipe can be completed in as few as three (3) days or as many as five (5) days, with minimum interruption of water service to the residence (usually no more than 4 hours daily). This ensures that the residents are not without water for a substantial amount of time if they are present at the home during work hours. We will provide the highest quality service starting with floor covering and protection for furniture and other objects in the residence. This keeps the personal property of each resident protected from debris and/or water and makes cleanup quick and easy. The location and routing for the pipes in each residence will be determined using small, surgical cuts in the drywall. We will exclusively uses the industry’s highest quality Flowguard Gold CPVC, Copper, or Aquapex for all repipes. Once the pipes have been replaced, all access points in the drywall and/or ceiling will be patched, re-textured, and painted. All work will be completed by our trained specialists; none of the work will be subcontracted.

If my home has Kitec fittings, what are my repair options?
The only adequate repair method is a complete re-plumb of both the hot and cold water lines of your home. Generally, a full re-plumb takes approximately five (5) to seven (7) business days for most homes to be completed and does not require relocation.

What do I do if I have a leak?
Treat it as you would any other leak, including taking steps to minimize any damage and contacting your homeowner’s insurance carrier. If a leak occurs, Turn off the main shut off valve to the home. If you do not know where your main shut off valve is located then immediately notify your plumber to stop the leak and to minimize any damage to your home. If a repair is required, keep all receipts and documentation of the repair. Please make sure to keep any Kitec fittings or pipe that must be removed to carry out the repair. Thereafter, please notify Class Counsel so that we can also keep a record of your leak and repair.

What is the KITEC Fitting class action?
This class action involves homeowners in Clark County who have Kitec fittings in their homes. Class Counsel’s goal is to enable these homeowners to repair their homes with no out-of-pocket expenses. You do not need to do anything to be a member of the class action.

As a member of the class, am I responsible for attorney’s fees and costs?
In a class action, attorney’s fees and costs must be approved as fair and reasonable by the Court, subject to both notice and comment to all class members. Therefore, Class Counsel will not receive their attorney’s fees or their costs in this litigation unless a Court first approves them as fair and reasonable.

Class Counsel are also pursuing claims under Chapter 40 of the Nevada Revised Statutes against certain builders of homes with Kitec® Fittings. Chapter 40 is Nevada’s law regarding construction defects. Under Chapter 40, attorney’s fees for construction defects do not come out of the repair money paid to the homeowners by builders. Therefore, if Class Counsel is successful in obtaining repairs for class members through Chapter 40, their attorney’s fees will be paid directly by the builder that carries out the repair.
