Brown or foul-tasting water, leaky or noisy pipes, and water pressure problems are just a few of the piping issues you may experience in your home. These problems can be both hazardous to your family’s health and potentially damaging to your home. Because there can be major consequences that arise due to plumbing mistakes, it’s best to call a professional if you are experiencing any problems with your piping.
There are a number of factors that must be considered when working with leaky pipes and other plumbing problems, such as:
- Diagnosis – The first step in solving any plumbing issue is diagnosing the cause of the problem. You may be able to fix symptoms of the problem, but if you don’t get to the root of the issue, the same plumbing problems will recur. A professional plumber knows what to look for and how to best identify the source of common plumbing problems.
- Materials – Different piping materials are used for different purposes in your home, and it’s important to use the correct material for the application at hand to avoid future problems like corrosion and galvanization. You may also want to upgrade your existing polybutylene pipes to more durable copper pipes.
- Repairs – Some leaks can be effectively repaired, but it’s important to use the appropriate sealing methods and materials. A professional plumber can identify the different between a simple leak repair and a more serious issue.
- Replacement – In some cases, you may need to re-pipe entire plumbing sections if the piping is significantly damaged. Hiring a professional contractor is the best way to ensure quality, lasting installations. Some contractors will even guarantee their work, so you can be sure you are getting quality workmanship.
