There are many reasons your home may necessitate a pipe repair in Orange County. This can often result in a replacement of an old pipe and in some cases, a complete pipe replacement may be necessary depending on the severity of a pipe leak or issue. Many pipe leaks can result in harsh consequences such as water damage to your floors, and drywall, or compromise the structural integrity of your home. Here are some examples of the types of repairs, and replacements, and why they may be necessary for your home:
Multiple Water Leaks Indoors:
If your home has suffered from multiple water leaks, this can result in a need to replace one or more of the pipes depending on how severe the issue is as well as how isolated it is. If the leak is only in one place, a repair might consist of a direct replacement of your existing pipe. If the issue is isolated to the kitchen perhaps, and the pipes in the home are otherwise stable, a partial repiping service is often the best solution. If your home has had multiple water leaks in different places, this may result from old, corroded pipes, and will necessitate a complete home re-pipe in order to ensure that the issues are resolved completely and prevent any further water damage in your home.
If your home was built on a concrete slab, ground shifts, corrosion, and others can cause the water lines beneath the slab to break. This can result in high water bills, hot spots on your floor, sounds of rushing water despite it being off, and other common signs, which can damage the foundation of your home. To locate the issue, your plumber in Orange County will typically use slab leak detection techniques, which help isolate and begin repairing the issue. Oftentimes, a reroute will be done to remove this water safely from your home after removing the damaged section of the pipe that caused the slab leak.
Appliances that utilize water such as water heaters, washing machines, and everyday uses including toilets, faucets, sinks & others will often be the culprit of a water leak. This can occur for a variety of reasons including corrosion to connecting pipes and hoses, broken seals, clogs, deterioration & more. Preventative maintenance such as plumbing inspections, water heater maintenance & annual descaling aid in preventing further water leaks from occurring.
