Wirsbo Pipe Replacement Often Best Option

1. Kick and scream!

Then, take a deep breath and remind yourself that the experts at Portland-based 3 Mountains Plumbing are prepared to help—with same day service if necessary.

2. Call a plumber that offers a warranty!

3 Mountains Plumbing has been serving the greater Portland metro area for over a decade and in that time has settled on a brand of pipe that is proven to be most effective for water service replacements. Their confidence in polyethylene Wirsbo pipe is celebrated with a 10-year labor and materials warranty. Additionally, Wirsbo comes with a 25-year warranty from its developer on all pipe and fittings.

3. Use the highest quality pipe.

Yes, repairs are possible, but will more than likely fail, being a far less cost effective option.

There are also  less expensive piping alternatives for water main line replacements, but polyethylene Wirsbo pipe is best in class. Why, you ask? Wirsbo pipe…

  • Resists corrosion and mineral buildup
  • Dampens noise from rushing water
  • Eliminates water hammer and “singing pipe” sounds
  • Retains additional heat in hot water lines
  • Prevents condensation on cold water lines
  • Stops joint fractures with one long roll of pipe from water meter to house (as opposed to shorter pipe rolls with excessive joints)
  • Applies improved crosslinking joint technology—No glue or joint threads.

What Else?

Wirsbo is a German-made pipe developed by a company called Uponor. Wirsbo has been successful for more than 35 years and is the clear superior choice for water service replacements. Because 3 Mountains Plumbing is a certified Wirsbo pipe installer, Uponor grants a 25-year warranty on all delivered pipe and fittings. Sure, it may cost a bit more, but isn’t your home worth it?
