We’ll Repair or Replace Damaged Drains

Any number of things can damage drains: pouring corrosive material down them, advanced lime scale, and water hammer being just a few. A lot of the time, damage incurred by your drain happens slowly over many years. In many cases, homeowners don’t even realize how badly damaged their drain pipes are until they have them looked at by a professional. Whether you have brand new copper drain pipes or 100 year old iron ones, though, you should know that sooner or later you’re probably going to need some professional repairs done on them.

We Handle Drain Repairs in Glenview

Often, drain pipes that require repair just need a leak or two patched. This is especially true with copper pipes, which are susceptible to a type of corrosion called "pitted corrosion." Pitted corrosion works from the outside inward, opening small holes known as "pinhole leaks." These leaks are only large enough to release one or two drops of water at a time, but with enough of them that can add up. In extremely advanced cases, the entire pipe may have to be replaced. Most of the time, though, it’s enough to fill in the pinhole leak.

Iron pipes are even worse, and often simply rust away until they rupture. Though they can last a long time, it is often better to simply replace iron pipes with copper ones to avoid complications later on. If you have an older home that contains iron drain pipes, call us today to see about having them replaced.

Of course, sometimes drain repair is as simple as giving it a good cleaning. Hydro–jetting involves shooting a high pressure stream of water down the drain to clear out any lime scale or other debris that might be clinging to the walls of the pipes. It’s not a perfect solution for every problem, and very stubborn lime scale deposits may require that sections of the drain pipe be replaced. For the most part, though, hydro–jetting is a great way to restore full capacity to your drains.

Keeping your drains in good health is a vital part of keeping your entire home plumbing system operating efficiently. Though you may not need them often, it is important to receive quality drain repairs when you do.
