Do You Know if Your Pipes Leak?
A lot of homes built since the 1960s are outfitted with copper plumbing systems. Copper is almost exclusively used because of its resistance to most kinds of corrosion. If your home is older than 50 years or so, however, you may still have iron plumbing pipes. Iron isn’t a great material for piping. Even though it can last up to 100 years, when it starts to rust it can fail pretty quickly. Large leaks and even pipe ruptures are quite common in older houses with iron pipes, often requiring complete repiping to fix.
Even copper pipes are not immune to leaks. A type of corrosion known as "pitted corrosion" is known to afflict copper pipes, opening up small leaks that are often not discovered until they have done a lot of water damage to the surrounding area. So, even if you have copper pipes it’s a good idea to have them checked at least once a year.
We can Take Care of Clogs for You
Clogs are perhaps one of the most frustrating plumbing problems that homeowners have to deal with. A clogged sink or drain means you can’t use it until it gets fixed, which can really throw a wrench into your daily schedule. Fortunately, there is a way to avoid the worst clogs if you pay close attention to your drains. A clog does not just suddenly appear. Instead, it builds slowly from the inner walls of the pipe towards the center. As more and more debris becomes stuck together on the walls of the pipe, the flow of water will constrict until it is completely cut off. So, if you want to save yourself from a serious clog, you should keep an eye on how much time your drains take to drain. If one of your drains starts to slow down over time, it’s a sign that a clog is forming in your pipe. At that point, you should give us a call to avoid having to deal with a complete clog.
