The acidic water supply of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland produces a corrosion on copper pipes. Corrosion by definition means an attack on a material, usually by some chemical or electrochemical means. It causes thinning of pipe walls or formation of a precipitate on pipe walls. Corrosion leads to two different kinds of problems: kills the pipe and/or changes the water quality. Besides corrosion, the other reasons of pipe failure can be undersized piping or high-velocity water flow. However, the result is all the same: frequent leakages that require immediate “emergency” repairs. Such quick repairs are only meant to solve the problems temporary by using clamps covering pinholes.
There is no formula how often a piping should be changed, yet, if the building is experiencing unexpected leaks it is worth replacing the water supply system rather than frequently paying for the costly patch-up repairs.
Firstly a new water pipe system is to be designed by a professional team of engineers in accordance with the plumbing and building codes; then the permits are pulled from the Municipal Hall. Prior to commencing the actual work, we present the schedule of works and provide an opportunity to the owners to ask questions. We make sure that each resident is given enough time to prepare and to be ready by the time our team gets into their suite or if there is a water shut-down taking place. John G. Plumbing takes pride in providing outstanding customer service that not only includes the actual interference with the individual residents but also results in maintaining cleanliness around the job site. When the final inspections passed we provide all necessary paperwork to properly and smoothly maintain the newly installed piping system.
Warning Signs that Lead to Repiping
The following are some of the most common warning signs that could require repiping:
- Low flow or low water pressure
- Higher monthly water bill
- Unexplained dampness on walls, floors and ceiling
- Water meter keeps running even when water is turned off
- Discolored and smelly water
- Water stains on the sink or tub
- Green spots on pipes
Main Causes of Pipe Problems
The following are some of the main causes that lead to problems with a home’s piping system:
Slab Leaks — A slab leak refers to the water that leaks through the foundation. A slab leak is considered quite dangerous since the damage remains invisible to the naked eye until it’s too late. Contacting professional repiping services will pinpoint the exact location of the leaking pipe which will minimize the excavation, and as a result, the cost for the repair.
Acidic Water Flow — Acidic water or high-water flow can lead to the corrosion of copper piping and can slowly lead to the pipe failing, which will significantly impact the entire piping system of a residential or commercial property with pinhole leaks.
Undersized Water System — Having an undersized water system installed in a home can also lead to piping damage and could require immediate maintenance or in some cases, need to be changed. You should allow a professional plumbing service anywhere near to the piping system of your home.
Reasons to Fix Pipe Problems
The following are some of the reasons why it is so important to get leaking or broken pipes fixed as soon as possible:
