Welcome to Longs Certified Plumbing’s Repipe Information Page.

My name is Mark Long and I am the owner. I would like to inform you on the choices you have in repiping your home. Copper piping is replaced by repiping in this town every single day. Pin holes in copper pipe are caused by the high pH acid that is in Florida’s water. Also some lightning strikes and electrical grounding issues can cause pin holes to spring a leak as well.

Here at Longs Certified Plumbing we are glad to announce we are now using PEX pipe on most repipes and remodels. Cross-linked polyethylene, commonly abbreviated PEX, XPE or XLPE, is a form of polyethylene with cross-links. It is used predominantly in building services pipe work systems, hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems, domestic water piping, and insulation for high tension electrical cables. We have found it to be a reliable option and cost effective to save money for our customers. The warranty on PEX pipe is 20 or 25 years depending on manufacturer. When installed and tested properly you should never need it. We don't cut corners and use brass fittings to insure a long life of the system.

We also want you to know that the owner and/or part-owner [son] will be on the job to supervise everything to make sure everything is done to the highest standards. Most repipes are done by installing new pipes in the attic and down the walls to all fixtures. If you currently have polybutylene pipe in your house now is a good time to repipe your home in PEX. Why wait for floods or leaks? Or be forced to repipe by your insurance company? Home values with polybutylene are as much as 20% lower than homes with PEX.

A few of the differences between us and the other guys are:

  • We use plastic isolating straps to secure the pipe to the structure that wrap around the pipe in order to keep the pipe from coming in contact with the wood or block which keep it from making noises when it expands and contracts due to the the changing temperatures.
  • We install foam insulation in the walls where there is the probability of the pipe moving and possibly making noise when faucets are turned on and off.
  • All outside hose bibbs and shutoff valves under sinks are 1/4/ turn for ease of use. This is an included upgrade at no extra charge to you. We use only the highest quality materials
  • All plumbing work is completed and or supervised by the owners of Long’s Certified Plumbing. No outside subcontractors.
  • I (Mark Long Sr.) am a State Certified Plumbing Contractor.I hold the highest plumbing license available in state of Florida.
  • We include professional drywall repair done by a professional drywall repair company instead of handymen or plumbers doing drywall repair. Our jobs are simply a step above the rest.
  • We pride ourselves in being punctual and courteous on all jobs. No waiting around like for the cable guy. We know your time is important.
  • All estimates done by owner not a salesman.
  • We are a family owned and operated company.
