Why You Should Consider a Plumbing Repipe

Pipes are the most essential component of a house’s plumbing system. Without these, there’s no way for the water to flow to your showers and faucets; and the wastes from your toilets and sinks will not be transported to the drainage and sewerage system.

That’s why, observing proper maintenance of your piping system is very important. And when the need for repiping comes in, don’t hesitate to call your plumbing services provider immediately.

You have to know that pipes get rusty and erode over time. Even if you have galvanized pipes, which are generally considered safe, you are not exempted from the experience of rusting and erosion. This type of material has limits that usually depend on the water supply it transports. If the water that runs through it is acidic due to low pH level, using galvanized pipes can compromise the safety of your water supply. Remember your Chemistry experiment back in high school when you used the litmus paper to test substances as if they are acidic, neutral, or alkaline? Well, it can somehow help you with this.

The signs that your galvanized pipes are slowly corroding include a higher water bill and brown coloring of the water coming from your faucets or showers. Next to this will be rust, a foul smell, and low water pressure which makes the water not safe for drinking. Few more days and cracks will start appearing on your pipe creating more spaces for molds.

Here is when the importance of repiping comes in.

A repipe is a process wherein a licensed plumber gets rid of your current corroded plumbing system and replaces it with an upgraded plumbing system like copper or PEX.

Doing so not only guarantees your family’s safety, but also improves the state of your house or office. Moreover, it could save you from having expensive water bills.

Since this is a very tough work to do, you can rely on your plumbing services provider on doing this for you.

Make sure that your plumbers have the experience and the credibility for doing such services, just like GSR Malabanan Siphoning and Plumbing Services. We are committed on giving you the best services for a more improved home living. Check out our contact details here.

A person can hold up for at least three weeks without food. But without water, an average person can only survive for up to three days although there had been instances where some people were able to survive for at least 8 to 10 days.  But these circumstances can be largely dependent to the physical and physiological health of a particular person.

In any case, water is such a precious resource and although the Earth is made up of three quarters of it, ensuring that we have a safe and potable water supply in our households is one way of conserving this resource.

Here are some key measures to prevent water damage in your own house or establishment.

  1. Watch out for molds.

Ah, molds. Where there’s moisture, surely there will be molds growing on that spot. And the presence of mold on your pipeline should already raise some concern, since the molds could have already contaminated your water supply. Also, focus on how rapidly the mold spreads. If the rate of the growth of the mold is quite fast, better call for professional help to get rid of the problem immediately and prevent further damage.

  1. Fix existing leaks.

Leaks can be the reason for number 1 in this list. Postponing leak repairs can result to mildew and molds, and even be the cause for grave structural damage that cannot be covered by your home insurance plan. The best action is to call your plumber and have the leaks fixed once you see it.

  1. Invest in water detection devices.

A water detector is a device that is acts as an alarm whenever its sensor detects moisture. This device is perfect in detecting tiny leaks that are usually not easily noticed. You may opt to have these devices installed near water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers and even toilets. Doing so will definitely help you monitor mold growth and avoid major damage.

  1. Groom plants surrounding your estate.

There’s a reason why there is a need to maintain plants and shrubs up to a certain height. And that’s not only to make it look pleasing to the eyes. Overgrown plants, trees or shrubbery, can damage water pipes especially when the roots start wrapping themselves to these pipes. If possible, removal of these plants should be done. If not, there is an option to just make sure that the landscaping of these plants are well-maintained and done on a regular basis.

 

Always ensure that your water supply is unharmed and safe for your family to use, because prevention is so much more important than the cost of repairs.
