The following list will give you more information about the materials of pipe we can work with:
Until about 15 years ago, copper was the most commonly used material for piping in new homes. These days, though, it’s very expensive compared with other options. It also corrodes easier than many people been believe, especially when used for hot water. Despite this, copper piping is still a reliable material when used for cold water and gas, and is the preferred replacement material here at Metropolitan Plumbing.
If you have a leaking or burst copper pipe, you should have it looked at urgently. We have all the experience, tools required and often the parts needed to repair or replace any copper piping. We stock most sizes of copper piping in our vans, so we should be able to do all work without having to go offsite to suppliers. We can also replace an entire network in copper for the very best results.
If your cold water is coming out a funny brown colour, or is dribbling out despite having the tap turned on fully, your galvanised pipes will most likely need replacing.
It was common for homes built before the 1960’s to have galvanised pipes, especially for the cold water line. These are usually made of steel or iron, which are then coated in a protective layer of zinc. However they still corrode, rust and freeze, eventually bursting or leaking to cause major problems.
Contact Metropolitan Plumbing straight away if you think you’ve got problems with, or if your galvanised pipes have just started leaking. We can send a plumber to repair or replace your leaking galvanised pipes. However as this material isn’t used that much anymore because of its corrosiveness, we may recommend and quote a full system replacement in a new material instead. This will save you time and money in the long run.

Polyethylene pipe is usually found outside, used to convey water either away from or to a house or apartment block.
