Frequent water leaks, high water bills, and damage to your home indicate the need for water line repair in Sugar Land. Furthermore, if frequent leaks are occurring, repiping may be necessary. All plumbing, including the pipes that deliver water, will eventually wear out. Repiping is the replacement of existing pipes with new. New piping will improve the quality of the home’s water supply, provides greater reliability, and can prevent severe damage due to leaks, and the resulting rot and mold.
The following signs may be an indicator of worn pipes and that repiping is needed, rather than additional water line repair in Sugar Land:
Frequent leaks are a sign of worn plumbing in need of replacement. Scheduling repiping now can prevent additional damage to the home and its foundation, and the potential for mold from occurring.
Over time, pipe material can wear thin, and in the case of galvanized metal pipe, can rust, and corrode. Eventually, all piping will require replacement, and aged plumbing is a sign that repiping may be needed. If you have a high water bill without explanation, contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg for water line repair in Fort Worth.
Low Water Pressure
When unusually low water pressure is a problem, ask the neighbors if they are also experiencing it. If so, the problem is with the supplier. Otherwise, your home’s pipes may be clogged with corrosion or hard water buildup. In addition, low water pressure may indicate the presence of a leak. Use the water meter to check for large leaks at the water meter by ensuring no water is in use for one hour, and write the reading down. After an hour, recheck it. If the numbers have changed, a leak is present. Contact a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg plumber in Sugar Land for water line repair in Sugar Land.
If discolored water is a problem when a tap is first opened, and your home has galvanized pipes, corrosion is likely. Contact a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg plumber for water line repair in Sugar Land.
If you are suddenly experiencing discolored water, contact your water supplier and ask if they are providing repair to the water mains. Soil contamination from municipal repair is a potential cause of discolored water. Otherwise, contact a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg professional.
Pipe Materials for Repiping
Modern pipe materials offer a choice right for your household and budget:
- Copper pipe is durable, lead free, recyclable, and resistant to corrosion and bacteria. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg uses the highest quality copper pipe available.
- CPVC and PVC are a time proven plastic pipe option, and provides a durable, cost effective choice for repiping.
- PEX piping (cross-linked polyethylene) is a cost effective option that offers flexibility capable of 90-degree bends, and long pipe runs. This reduces the number of fittings, and consequently of potential leaks. In addition, PEX provides a shutoff valve at each supply line, a convenience when repair is required.
