Types of Water Lines
Types of water lines we prefer to work with:
- Copper: Copper lines are tough, durable, and corrosion-resistant, making them ideal for homes and businesses.
- PVC: PVC is lightweight, cost-effective, and easy to install. While not as durable, they still get the job done.
- PEX: PEX is a newer innovation that makes the water lines more flexible, easy to work with, and perfect for retrofitting existing systems or installing them in tight spaces.
Signs You May Need Water Line Repairs
For the most part, you don’t think about your water lines until a water line goes awry. Here are some signs you may need water line repairs or replacement.
- Low water pressure: If your shower feels more like a gentle mist than a spray, you may have a problem with your water line.
- Discolored water: Water that appears more like swamp water than clear may indicate some rust or sediment buildup in your water line. We can flush those impurities faster than a juice cleanse.
- Higher water bills: A sudden spike in your water bill could mean a leak or other issue in your water line. You’ll want to contact a professional plumber to find your leak.
- Strange noises: Gurgling or bubbling noises coming from your pipes may indicate air in your water line or a clog.
- Wet spots: Wet spots or puddles in your yard may indicate a leak in your water line. We’ll need to dig deep (literally) to find and make the repair.
Causes of Water Line Issues
The Sunshine State is no stranger to water line issues. The humid weather, sandy soil, or something else entirely can cause water line issues. These are the most common causes in Florida:
- Corrosion: Florida’s humid climate can accelerate the corrosion of metal pipes, leading to leaks, bursts, and other issues.
- Hard water: Many areas of Florida have hard water containing high levels of minerals that build up in pipes and cause clogs.
- Tree roots: Tree roots can infiltrate and damage water lines in Florida, and the sandy soil can make it easier for roots to spread and cause issues.
- Hurricanes: Florida is no stranger to severe weather, and hurricanes can cause extensive damage to water lines, including flooding, debris buildup, and more.
- Age: Many of Florida’s older homes and buildings have outdated plumbing systems more prone to leaks and clogs.
