Water pipes will naturally wear over time due to weakened materials, excessive water pressure, and poor quality pipe materials.
Some signs that can indicate it is time to repipe a home’s water supply include:
As homes and businesses age, so does the water supply system. Piping materials have a projected lifespan and will eventually need replaced. For a complete water evaluation, call our experts and we can provide recommendations and give you peace of mind.
Pipes with lead elements or polybutylene pipes should be replaced as soon as possible. Polybutylene was popular in the 80’s and 90’s and frequently caused leaks, and is no longer used. Pipes with lead can leak hazardous materials into the home’s water supply.
Excessive water pressure can wear pipes over time potentially causing damage. If your home is experiencing leaks, it may be time for an estimate to repipe the system or repair the leaking line.
Corrosion is a sign of past leaks, hard water and excessive water pressure. Corrosion should be checked by a licensed specialist and could collapse the pipe leading water damage.
Elk Grove Plumbing, Drain, Heating & Air can help to evaluate your home’s water system and ensure there are no active leaks, as well as determine the condition of your water pipes.
Water Line Repair
If the water line is leaking in an exposed line or easily accessible pipe, repair is often the best and most cost effective solution.
Water line repairs should only be performed by licensed and insured specialists, as it requires specialized tools and plumbing knowledge to protect your property.
For leaks underneath the slab foundation, direct repair requires cutting into the floor to repair the leak. This is often covered by insurance and the fastest solution. However, direct repair in the slab only repairs the leaking section and slab leaks will typically happen more than once.
Our water line repair specialists will accurately diagnose the cause of leaks to determine the best repair method. When repairs are made behind walls, in floors or ceilings, we will safely contain the property and perform all repairs to uniform plumbing code.
Water Line Replacement
When direct repair is not possible or will not permanently solve leaks, we can make recommendations to reroute or repipe the leaking lines.
Rerouting the leaking line eliminates the pipe in the slab by installing a new high quality pipe above ground. Reroutes can be routed through walls, cabinets, or on the exterior of the home making them easily accessible for future repairs.
Repiping hot, cold, or all water lines instantly upgrades the property. When water systems are weakened or made from poor quality materials, repiping can solve the current leaks and guard against future leaks.
