How you can avoid water leaks? A water line break can be a very serious problem that results in severe damage to your home. Even a small leak, left undetected can become a breeding ground for mold and damage the home’s structure. Regular maintenance by a licensed plumbing specialist can help deter such accidents from happening in the first place.
Just like any other system in a home, your water lines need regular maintenance. We recommend annual checkups from one of our plumbing professional. Here are just a few of the things we look for during an inspection: Weaknesses in the pipes, decreases in water pressure, periodic banging or knocking of the pipes. We also look for build ups of sediment that could potentially lead to a problem in the future.
Water line repair
Before working on your water line, we will investigate whether it makes sense to repair the line or if it is better to replace the entire pipe. The most important factors we take into consideration when resolving a water line leak are the: materials, age of the pipe and whether the pipe has had a previous repair.
No matter how good of a job a plumber does in repairing a water line leak, it is not uncommon for a water line repair to leak again in the future. Repairing a water line at two separate times can end up costing you more than if you replaced the entire pipe from the beginning. If you decide to repair a line or simply replace, you can trust us to deliver the highest quality service.
When we repair a water line, we always perform a pressure test to ensure all leaks have been eliminated. We will then do a final walk through inspection and restore property grounds to its original condition. Contact Friendly Plumber Heating & Air today to have us come out and work on your water lines.
