I came back from 5 days away to find a cracked pipe and 2" of water in my basement. The pipe that cracked was old galvanized pipe going to an outdoor faucet, although the pipe runs through the basement, not out of doors. The house is 100 years old and I'm wondering about re-piping the house (1 story, 1 bathroom) to avoid further problems such as this. Is it worth the money? What are the chances of the old plumbing being ok vs. going bad piece by piece? And are faucets feeding outdoor spigots more likely to break than those wholly in the house. Thanks, Maryann
