Water Line Repair in Charleston
Reliable Plumbing Services
At McAtee Plumbing Heating & Cooling, our Charleston plumbing professionals can repair and replace any water line from the street to your faucet. It is not unusual for even the best laid lines to develop leaks or even break over time. Junctions, where two or more lines come together, are often weaker areas. As they age, these connections have been known to crack or even break under the intense pressure of water.
It’s true that water lines are designed to withstand intense amounts of pressure, and to tolerate changes in temperature from without and within, but everything breaks down over time. The best way to prevent water line problems is to check on them regularly.
When water lines burst they can make a horrible mess. Water has the power to destroy anything in its path. Even after things seem dry, mold can grow in hidden corners and cause health problems years down the road.
Preventing Water Damage in Charleston
Does your sink have an annoying little drip, or does your toilet run all night long? Few things can be as bothersome as dripping water or water fixtures that don’t quite work correctly. Unfortunately, the little drips and odd sprays from faucets are often the indicators of a larger problem. When rubber gaskets dry up and crack, they allow water to flow through.
This is what causes the drips. If the gaskets are old then, there is a good chance that the piping they are attached to is as well. Oftentimes, when a homeowner sets about changing that faucet gasket, they find a host of other problems as well. Don’t try to DIY a plumbing fix. Our professional plumbing team has the skills and tools needed to diagnose and fix your water line problems quickly and effectively.
