Pipe leaks are a source of great distress. Before you notice them, they can cause perplexingly high water bills and puddles in your home or business. When left alone, the problems can compound and create mold/mildew, water damage on floors and walls, ceiling stains, and a giant headache.
The professional Rancho Cucamonga plumbers at Ramco Plumbing, Heating & Air can uncover the root of the leak and execute dependable pipe repair on any part of your pipe.
Types of Pipe Leak Repairs
There are a lot of different pipe leaks that can occur from the aging of your home or building, faulty installations, or environmental factors.
A few common leaks include:
- Burst pipe: This is pretty hard to miss if it is a water supply pipe. When it bursts, you will immediately experience flooding.
- Small leak: A small leak is sneaky and could end up causing more trouble over time than a larger leak. This is because water can build up in your home where you can’t see it and develop more damage over time. You may notice mold or mildew with this leak.
- Fixture leak: Sometimes your fixtures can leak slowly but cause major hassles. This is another insidious leak that will require some replacement or repair. If your showerhead is leaking inside your walls, some reconstruction may be necessary.
If you are living in an older home or building, you may be getting nervous about the need to repipe. You might also need whole-home repiping services if your existing pipes are beyond repair. Whatever the reason, when you’re considering a repipe specialist, Ramco Plumbing, Heating & Air wants to be upfront and helpful about what you are experiencing. We can help you decide what course of action to take.
You may need to repipe if:
- Your home or building is old: Typically if your structure is 50 years old or more, your pipes are going to be in poor condition. Pipes constructed at that time are prone to bursting and corrosion because they were made with a zinc lining.
- Your water is red or brown: This is the color of rust. It can be alarming the first time you see it running from your faucet. It is a good indication that the interior of your pipes is corroding.
- You have multiple pipe leaks: There is a difference between a patch job and a replacement, and it will be pretty clear you need a replacement if there are repeated repairs.
- Low water pressure: Buildup can narrow your pipes and cause your water supply to be restricted.
You may be wondering what kind of pipes can help prevent these problems in the future. Fortunately, there are a few options that would do the trick, including copper, PVC, and PEX. Our Rancho Cucamonga repipe specialists can help you decide on which would suit your home.
