When Piping Services Are Necessary
There are a few different times when you might need piping services of one kind or another. First, if you’re constructing a new house or adding onto an existing one you’re going to need piping services. That is, provided you want to have running water available.
Second, you may need piping services to repair sections of damaged pipe. This is often the case when pipes rupture, become corroded, or have too much lime scale buildup in them to function properly any more. This is the most common form of piping service.
Third, and finally, you may need piping services to replace large portions of your home’s plumbing. This is only done under very specific circumstances, such as pipes that are older than 50 years or are perhaps made of a harmful material like lead. We offer comprehensive piping services, no matter what your needs are.
How to Preserve Your Pipes with Regular Maintenance
The majority of plumbing pipes in homes today are made of copper, which can last quite a long time under the right circumstances. In fact, most people go their entire lives without having to replace more than one or two pipes in their homes. However, it is possible for pipes to develop problems that shorten their lifespans considerably. One of the most common is corrosion, caused by chlorine and formaldehyde particles in the air or soil. These weaken the copper pipes, making leaks more likely and widespread. Tree roots are another common problem for pipes like the water and sewer line, which run outside the house to their respective city mains. Roots tend to bore into the pipes looking for water, and if they become too entrenched the pipe will need to be replaced.
If you want to preserve your pipes, early detection of these issues is key. Be sure to schedule professional maintenance services for your pipes at least once a year. This gives your plumber time to find and fix issues before they become so advanced that the pipe needs to be replaced. Next, if you do suspect that you have a problem that requires piping services, don’t wait to call. The earlier you can have a plumber get to the problem, the better off your pipes are going to be.
