If your Orange County home was built more than 40 years ago, there’s a good chance that your water and gas pipes have corrosion and require an inspection. Do you have low water pressure, particles in your water, or discolored or foul-smelling water? How about slow-warming water, inconsistent water temperatures, a rotten-egg odor in your home, or trouble running multiple gas-powered appliances simultaneously? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it may be time to replace your pipes.
It’s not a matter of if your old pipes will go bad; it’s a matter of when. And bad pipes pose a very real threat to you and your family. Most older homes have galvanized pipes, which corrode and clog with rust and slime. Over time they form small leaks or cracks, or loose connections at the joints. If they are water pipes, they may carry contaminated water, and may form pinhole leaks. If a tiny leak goes unnoticed for a long time, it can enable toxic black mold to form. Leaky gas pipes emit toxic gas that can poison you or your family. They also carry the risk of a fire or explosion. Such risk is intolerable!
Symptoms of Failing Pipes
Old water pipes that corrode from the inside will create rust and mineral particles that flow down the line and clog your faucets. They also get into your dishwasher and washing machine, causing them to run inefficiently. These deposits could even damage your machine, prompting you to replace it, even though replacing it will not solve the problem! Corrosion in your pipes will lower your water pressure, and can put toxic buildup in your drinking water. When you begin to experience these symptoms in your plumbing system, it’s time to replace your pipes.
Gas pipes on the other hand, may still be able to provide a steady flow of gas. To detect a leak, you have to listen carefully for hissing, or notice the smell of gas in a part of your home or business where you don’t have an appliance. Once you do notice gas, get out of the home immediately and call 911, but also call the professionals at Orange Coast Plumbing.
Trust Orange County’s Most Reliable Plumber
When you choose the right vendor for a repiping operation, don’t entrust your property and your family’s health to unqualified contractors keen to tear up your floors and walls. Take the time to find a trusted name in plumbing and heating services. Orange Coast Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning has been serving Southern California for nearly four decades, earning a sterling reputation and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. And we have performed hundreds of repiping operations over the life of our business.
The first step in any repiping operation is a thorough inspection of your home or office and its plumbing infrastructure. By doing this step properly, a service team will be able to eliminate countless hours of cutting up (and repairing) your home. The inspection will provide a skilled team with the best possible access points, and should enable them to take apart pipes and slide them right out of that access without knocking down walls.
After evaluating your home to determine the simplest and safest way to perform the operation, we will consult with you to determine the best materials for the job. For water piping, there are many reasons to choose high-quality copper, although many people choose PVC pipe. Orange Coast Plumbing has worked with all types of materials over the years, and will bring these materials to the site at a reasonable cost for you. We know that you expect new pipes to last for as long as you own your home, and therefore we intend to provide only the best materials and advice.
Orange Coast Plumbing’s certified service technicians will explain the problem in plain language and give you a competitive estimate in writing so you can make truly informed decisions — no confusing double-talk or surprise charges. We make use of professional drain and sewer cameras to show you the exact reason for the work, and also to explain the procedure clearly. Once we begin the project, you will be confident that the project is necessary, and that you are getting value for your dollar.
Because of our experience, you can be sure that we will not be wasting a lot of time. Having planned our operation properly, we will finish much faster than our competitors would. Many of our repiping operations are completed in a single day. Faster service results in savings that we can pass on to you, and enables us to serve more clients and attract new business.
