What Causes a Water Pipe to Leak?
From wear and tear to excessive pressure, a leak in your water pipe can lead you to some serious issues. The most common reason for a water pipe leak is a weakening of the pipe. Over time the pipes in your homes plumbing slowly breaks down until at some point they allow water to pass through. Additionally, when there is a clog in your plumbing system it can create a high level of pressure that in some instances can result in a burst water pipe. At USA Plumbing Plus we offer professional water pipe leak repairs to remedy these issues promptly and efficiently ensuring as little damage to your home as possible.
How is Leaking Water Pipe Repaired?
When our expert technicians have identified the area of the leak, the next step is to determine the size and course of action. If the leak is small enough, the pipe may be able to be fixed with a simple flow of pipe epoxy through the pipe without having to tear out the wall or ceiling. This process is a useful process especially for copper water pipes that are likely to form rust or corrode over time and become more likely to develop leaks and possibly contaminate the water with rust as well. Should the damage require more serious repair issues then repiping may be your only option. Our professional technicians can perform these services safely and efficiently.
What is Repiping?
If the leak is too major to fix with just patching or epoxies, pipe replacement or repiping may be needed. Pipe replacement should also be considered if your house is old and you suspect there may be a lot of rust or corrosion in your pipes. The old pipes will be cut and new ones will be fit in or welded into place quickly and efficiently. In replacing the pipes, you may have the option to replace copper pipes with CPVC pipes. CPVC pipes are not subject to rust or corrosion and can be easier to fit in place as well. They also don’t have to be welded together like copper pipes and are quicker to install. No matter what the solution you choose, you can rest assured knowing that the experts from USA Plumbing Plus have the best solution for you!
