6 Reasons to Get Repiping for Your California Home

6 Reasons to Get Repiping for Your California Home

Your home’s plumbing system is an integral part of your daily life. However, wear and tear from minerals and chemicals in the water can slowly wear down your home’s piping. If your pipes get worn down, you’ll have to deal with lower water pressure, higher water bills, and the possibility of water damage. When your California home’s plumbing is getting old, a repiping may be just what it needs. By replacing your home’s plumbing system with new pipes, we can improve the efficiency of your home’s plumbing and protect it from failure.

Here are six reasons you should get repiping done for your California home:

 

Raise your home’s value

There are many ways to remodel your home, and repiping isn’t one that readily noticeable. However, getting new pipes for your home makes it safer, and safety is an important part of a house’s value. This makes repiping worth considering if you’re going to sell your house soon.

 

Higher water pressure

Is the stream of water from your faucet weaker than it normally is? A possible reason for this is because of damaged pipes. Pipes that get damaged and corroded can hurt your water pressure, especially if it’s also causing a leak. By getting new pipes, you can restore your water pressure to normal and guarantee more water for your appliances and fixtures.

 

No more corroded pipes

Some older piping materials, such as galvanized metal, tend to rust from the inside out. This rust can break off of the pipe and get into your drinking water. Even worse, the rust can wear away at the pipes and corrode them even quicker. By replacing your pipes, you can get new pipes that haven’t been damaged from corrosion.

 

Save money

Repiping doesn’t come cheap, but it certainly comes cheaper than paying to repair severe water damage. Allowing older pipes to remain part of your plumbing system puts you at risk for leaks, burst pipes, and other problems. All of these can cost you plenty, so take the less expensive option by getting new pipes.

 

Improved appliance performance

Plenty of your appliances use water, and part of their performance relies on having a steady supply of water. If they aren’t working as well, the problem might not be the appliance. If you get new pipes for your home, your water-based appliances are likely to work much better.

 

More hot water

New pipes can help improve plumbing all over your home, such as with your water heater. New pipes will improve the water pressure, and that means your water heater will get more water. This means you’ll be able to get more hot water for your home.

4 Benefits From Getting a Video Pipe Inspection

4 Benefits From Getting a Video Pipe Inspection

When your home’s plumbing is experiencing a problem, the problem is sometimes deep in your sewer pipes. However, it can be hard to identify and fix those problems without invasive measures. That’s why we offer our customers video pipe inspections, a kind of inspection that can easily examine your sewer system. The key tool in this process is a special camera on a long, flexible rod that we connect to a computer. This camera on a rod can go into your sewer system and discover any problems in there. These inspections can help us determine the best treatment for your plumbing problems.

Here are four ways a video pipe inspection can make your sewer repairs easier:

 

Minimize unnecessary digging

Traditional sewer repairs involve digging a large trench in your yard to reach the pipes. While it does help solve sewer problems, it also tears up your yard and garden. In extreme cases, they may also have to dig up your driveway. For a video pipe inspection, we can bypass all of that as long as we can get access to the sewer pipe’s opening. From there, we can safely snake in the camera and see inside the pipes.

 

Get the right fix the first time

There are many different problems your sewer line can face. Tree roots can break into the line and block the flow of water. The system can get blocked by things that aren’t meant to be flushed. Or maybe you’re just dealing with a water leak. Whatever the problem is, we can determine it by using the sewer camera. From there, we’ll be able to know the best solution for your problem.

 

Inexpensive and fast

The trench-digging method for sewer repair is slow and can mess up your yard. However, the speed offered by a video pipe inspection can help find your problem quickly. By quickly remedying the issues, we can prevent larger problems from arising, which would cost more money to repair. Also, the quicker work saves us money on labor, and we pass the savings onto you.

 

Get a reference video for insurance

Most insurance companies won’t provide insurance payouts unless you have hard evidence of your problem. Luckily, a video pipe inspection can help with that. Our inspections come with a recording of what the camera saw. This footage can help you prove to the insurance company that you’re qualified for a payout.
