REROUTING OR REPLACING WATER LINES
Homeowners often try rerouting and replacing water lines themselves, but it often becomes a probelm because there are issues that can only be fixed by an experienced plumber. A water line professional will be able to replace rusted, cracked or lead pipes, whether underground or in your house. There are several materials that can be used for underground water lines, with copper and PVC being the most popular. Ensuring your water lines are in good condition and made from modern materials will also add to the value of your property, whereas leaks and damaged lines will detract from the value. If you have leaks or low water pressure, then it is a good idea to have the lines from the water mains to your house replaced.
This can now be done using “no-dig” technology, so you will not need to worry about repairing your driveway or other areas of your property after the water line work has been done. A new, undamaged pipe will create higher water pressure within your property, and the replacement work does not take long to carry out, with a minimum of disruption. However, if the original water lines were not installed deep enough underground, then a new line will need to be positioned further underground to ensure that it will not freeze in the winter and potentially crack or let the water through.
A water line professional will also be able to replace damaged pipes within your property. These are usually located either within the walls or the floor; pipes under the floors are easier to access and therefore cheaper to repair or replace. An experienced DrainCity plumber will check the integrity of all joints and connections between pipes, ensuring that there are no leaks and the water pressure is sufficient before the water line job is completed.
