Why Replace Your Water Line?
There are a number of reasons why it may be necessary to replace your water line. Like all parts of a home plumbing system, water lines wear out over time due to corrosion, movement due to temperature change or root intrusion. The only way to fix the problem is often by replacing the line entirely.
It may also be necessary to replace or reroute a water line when performing home renovations or expansions. Whatever your needs for water line replacement are, Mr. Rooter Plumbing will work to meet them with quality service at an affordable price.
The Importance of Lead Pipe Replacement
Many older properties still have lead plumbing. These pipes can leach lead into the water you use for drinking, cooking and bathing. As your body absorbs the toxin in different ways, you can suffer a range of health problems, including: chronic nausea and abdominal pain, irritability, forgetful, depression, and heart and kidney disease. In children, lead poisoning can cause serious neurological problems. According to medical and environmental experts, no amount of lead is safe. Most importantly, lead is stored in muscle and bone tissue so that it continues to impact a person long after the source has been eliminated.
You can tell lead pipes by their dull silver color. They’re often thinner than traditional piping and joined to other hardware with a wipe joint. The metal is soft with a powdery coating that scratches away to reveal shiny metal underneath.
Lead pipes perform well for up to roughly 40 years, meaning many of the plumbing in homes in the area are already corroding to the point where they are a health concern. Replacement is strongly considered over a simple lead pipe repair. These pipes may be located behind tub and shower enclosures, under sinks and in water lines running underground from your home to the city water supply. Replacing them with copper, PVC or another newer material adds to the value of your home and protects your family from potential health effects.
Trenchless Technology That Simplifies Repairs
One of the biggest advantages of having Mr. Rooter Plumbing perform a water line replacement in your home is our exclusive Pipe Pull™ trenchless repair system. Replacing a water line isn’t necessarily a time consuming job — accessing the line itself is often the most labor intensive part. It may involve digging up your lawn, garden or driveway.
Pipe Pull™ simplifies things considerably. Instead of digging, our technicians can run a new water line in place of the existing one. A large installation head pulls the piping through and connects it to your existing plumbing system. This new pipe is code-compliant, built to last for 100 years or longer and, best of all, can typically be installed in just one day!
