Leaky Plumbing Pipe Repairs
Leaks in your pipes can be a nightmare to deal with. An average homeowner will have a hard time finding the source of the leak throughout drain pipes and supply pipes. When you have leaky pipes, you don’t want to wait around and hope things will settle down. You may run the risk of breaking a pipe or causing an accident. To avoid making things worse, call in our experts for a quick fix.
We’ll come prepared with tools and parts to repair your leaky pipes in no time at all. For example, if you have a leak in a PVC drain pipe, we can determine if a patch-up job will suffice or if we need to cut the pipe and replace it. We work on copper, PVC, lead, and cast iron.
Drain Plumbing Pipes
Your drain pipe is responsible for moving water from a particular area. There are several types of drain pipes, and some are designed to drain water off roofs, while others are used to drain water away from your property. Drain pipes are crucial to preventing flooding in basements, damage to structures, soil erosion, and the creation of swamp-like conditions on your landscaping. Typically, these drain pipes are made of plastic, lead, cast iron, or polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
PVC – Polyvinyl chloride pipes are used in projects that require a drainage pipe to hold up well against pressure and heavy weight. These pipes can be built in a range of sizes and are useful because they are particularly durable. This piping is also recyclable!
Copper – Copper is a great choice for drainage pipes because it conducts electron current or flow of electrons with ease. We always choose the right gauge to ensure quality and functionality. When compared with other conductors, such as gold or silver, copper is generally the most cost-effective.
Lead – Our crew knows how to identify lead plumbing pipes (for supply or drain) in residential homes. The life expectancy of lead drain piping may be 50 years or longer, depending on water corrosion and usage.
Cast Iron – If you need cast iron pipe replacement, we’ll use materials that won’t break again or break your bank. Sometimes, a minor repair will fix the cracks in your cast iron piping but some cases may call for more involved replacement. We will safely cut out old cast iron and install new materials.
Plumbing Supply Pipes
Supply pipes are plumbing lines used to supply water to fixtures throughout homes and commercial buildings. Your supply lines may connect to plumbing fixtures including sinks, showers, bathtubs, toilets, and outdoor hose connectors. Supply pipes and a second set of drainage or wastewater piping make up a complete plumbing system.
PEX – PEX pipe is made from cross-linked HDPE (high-density polyethylene). Your piping must be clean and non-reactive so that it won’t contaminate or change the flavor of your water. This piping is a cross-linked polyethylene tubing that provides an excellent option for plumbing because it is fast and high-performing.
PVC – Polyvinyl chloride pipes are used in projects in which a strong and durable drainage pipe is needed to hold up against pressure. These pipes can be built in a variety of sizes, and are useful because they are particularly durable. This piping is also recyclable!
Galvanized – Many customers switch to galvanized steel pipes from lead in the interest of water purity and health. These must be installed correctly so that you won’t experience leaking, and the pipes should be sized properly to maintain steady pressure.
Copper – Copper is a great choice for supply pipes because it is a conductor. Copper conducts the electron current or flow of electrons with ease. Pipes that are sized too large will not be able to carry water over a long distance, so we always choose the right gauge to ensure quality and functionality.
