Pressurized water pipes are a major component in a municipal sewer system. It delivers water from the city supply to your kitchen, bath, laundry, and outdoor irrigation. Homeowners may experience low water pressure in any of these areas from time to time. This may be a sign that it’s time to repipe a pressurized water line.
Symptoms of a Faulty Water Line
Aside from low pressure, does your shower become suddenly hot when someone flushes the toilet? Many homeowners believe this is normal, though it may be a sign of damage. The same is true if you see yellowish or rust-colored water coming out of the faucet.
What Is Going on with the Pipes?
Older pipes are made from copper or galvanized steel. These materials begin to erode and thin out as they’re exposed to the chemicals and minerals in the water. These eventually create small holes that affect water pressure and exposes the water to outdoor impurities.
How Repiping Works
Our utility installation includes no-dig technology for repiping and other sewer line work. A portion of the pipes may be located deep underground and in tight spaces in the home, such as the attic and crawl spaces. This makes digging an intrusive endeavor. A crew may also have to tear away a large portion of the interior wall.
With a sewer relining method, we can refit the existing pipe with one larger in diameter, allowing it to hold more water. We also use higher-grade pipes that are frictionless and resist the buildup of calcium and other minerals common in the Pacific Northwest.
