Plumbers Littleton, Replacement and Installation Services
Plumbing replacements are a big project, but if the service is performed accurately, new equipment can work flawlessly with existing plumbing and sewer systems for decades to come.
Kitchen & bathroom faucets, toilets, water heater, boiler, venting systems, and garbage disposal are all systems which are prone to blockage, broken/cracked pipes, and leaking joints. Installation and replacement of these compartments can boost property value, home comfort, and energy efficiency, fix water leakage, and lower operating costs. Simply Sewers offers customers a no-obligation free estimate for plumbing replacements in Littleton and the surrounding cities.
Being proactive about your home’s plumbing can pay off in the long run for the health of your home and its occupants. If you have aging pipes, it is important to understand the impact it can have on your property. Homeowners need to be aware of their home’s old and deteriorating pipes as the installed tubing naturally corrodes, rusts, and decays. Leaks can occur which leads to water damage and possibly raw sewage seeping into homes resulting in thousands of dollars in damages. Supply pipes and drain lines have different lifespans depending on the type of material used. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) lasts between 25-40 years, copper between 70-80 years, and brass, galvanized steel, and cast iron between 80-100 years.
In a climate like Colorado, pipes can freeze and burst easily. Water expands as it freezes. This expansion places immense pressure on metal and plastic pipes, which in turn causes them to break. Pipes most at risk for this phenomenon include water supply pipes in unheated interior areas, pipes against exterior walls with little insulation and pipes exposed to severe cold. Simply Sewers is able to provide 24-hour plumbing repair to homeowners for frozen pipes issues.
Tips for Preventing Frozen Pipes
In order to protect pipes from freezing before the onset of cold weather, experts recommend a few key strategies.
- Draining water from water supply lines following manufacturer directions helps eliminate the risk of expanding water.
- Removing water hoses stored outdoors, closing inside supply valves mitigates frozen pipe risk, all the while leaving outside valves open so that water remaining inside the pipe can expand without breaking the pipe.
- Other strategies for protecting pipes include relocating exposed pipes, insulating pipes in unheated areas, and using specific products like pipe sleeves or heat tape on exposed water pipes.
Prevention and Thawing
Frozen pipes may be prevented by leaving heat turned on in homes during cold weather, allowing cold water to drip from faucets, and allowing warmer air to circulate around the plumbing when the weather is cold outside.
Methods for thawing frozen pipes include applying heat using an electric heating pad wrapped around the pipe, applying heat until full water pressure is restored and running water through the pipe which will help melt ice trapped inside.
Leaking pipes are one of the major water damage causes in homes today. Figuring out the reason why pipes leak is sometimes not so straightforward. Pipes begin to deteriorate and rust over a prolonged period of use. Furthermore, the natural shifting of a house’s foundation causes joints in the house’s plumbing to loosen causing water leakage.
Also contributing to leaking pipes are temperature changes stemming from alternating between hot and cold water, for instance, when taking a shower. The temperature change can cause some pipes to burst or crack. Also, as water runs through pipes in the winter, crevices may be formed which could lead to leaks. If water pressure coming through pipes is not regulated, the pipes may burst or crack causing water leakages. Clogs may form in pipes due to a variety of reasons including grease getting trapped inside, hair, socks, etc. When clogs form, sinks and toilets usually drain a lot slower than normal. If not taken care of appropriately, the house may suffer from plumbing joints that overflow and create water leakages.
Other causes of leaking pipes within households include bad workmanship from hiring an unqualified plumber or DIY projects. Often, the joints are not connected tightly enough, or incorrect materials are used in the process. For these reasons, homeowners are urged to contact professional plumbing services. In some instances, Simply Sewers is able to correct leaking pipe issues by pulling a new pipe through the old pipe using a hydraulic machine. The new pipes are more resistant to leaking issues and last longer.
There are three common locations for faucet leaks. When a faucet drips from its spout even while the handle is turned off, it is obvious that the faucet is leaking. A small drip usually gets worse over time and adds to the water bill. The constant drip can also begin the stain the sink if it is not fixed. Other fixes include replacing the washers on the end of the faucet stem for compression faucets.
Another common location for faucet leaks is around the base of the faucet. This area is not quite obvious because users can splash water around the base unintentionally. In order to verify that there is indeed leakage around the base of the faucet, homeowners can first dry all the standing water around the sink, then, turn the water on, and carefully look for water leaking from the base of the faucet.
The third common location for faucet leaks is under the sink and the one that does the most damage to your home. This spot is particularly more difficult to diagnose because most people do not have a regular habit of checking the piping and tubing under their sink. This kind of leak can damage floors if left unrecognized. Simply Sewers, with its experience and knowledge of the area is able to provide homeowners with fast leaking faucet repair service.
Water Heater Repair
Water heaters typically have a lifespan between 10 and 15 years before they need replacement. Imagine jumping into the shower expecting a warm shower stream, only to find that the water from the shower is freezing cold. Here are some ways to troubleshoot water heater issues and determine if you need to call a plumber.
Water heaters should be maintained at least once a year and any leakage issues should be addressed immediately. A professional plumbing company such as Simply Sewers can correct water heater issues that you are experiencing.
Troubleshooting Common Water Heater Problems
- Check the water heater to make sure that the pilot light is turned on. If it is out, check the manufacturer’s manual for instruction on how to relight it.
- Gas water heaters need to be serviced by a professional plumber to check if the gas line leading to the appliance is leaking.
- If the water coming from a water heater is not hot enough, the heating element may need to be replaced.
- If the water heater is producing water that appears rusty, this could signal a potential upcoming failure of the device. Water contaminants can build up and harden in the bottom of a heater. Solutions include using a water softening agent, reducing the temperature of the water heater to 130 degrees, and cleaning the water heater regularly.
- Some water heaters have problems with their thermostats.
- Other warning signs associated with water heaters include loud cracks and pop noises coming from the device.
Plumbing Maintenance and Inspections
Being a homeowner means that at some point you may deal with a number of issues related to plumbing, clogged drains, burst pipes, and sewer systems. As recommended by experts, in order to prevent major plumbing disasters or other expensive water damage homeowners are urged to have plumbing inspections performed annually. After an inspection is performed, the plumber will sit down and go through results with the homeowner. Regular inspections and sewer maintenance reduce repairs and damage to the home ensuring that all the systems are working properly.
Plumbing Inspections for New Homeowners
We also do new homeowner plumbing inspections. Examples of plumbing issues include running toilets, blocked sinks and drains, low water pressure which could indicate an underground water leak, or mold, drippings, and rotten wood growing water pipes stemming from prior leaks. A professional company, like Simply Sewers, can provide a comprehensive look into a home’s plumbing system inside and out and give you a full report for your real estate agent or mortgage lender.
