SIGNS YOUR WATER LINE MAY BE DAMAGED
EXPENSIVE WATER BILL
If your water bill is suddenly significantly higher than usual, it's a good sign that there's an issue with your pipes and you're losing water.
POOR WATER PRESSURE
If your faucets and shower heads aren't producing as strong a stream of water as before, there may be an issue with your pipes.
POOR WATER QUALITY
If your water is suddenly brown, foggy or smelly, your pipes are very likely corroded or contaminated.
If water is bubbling up in your yard, it may be because you have a damaged water line that is hemorrhaging water.
PIPE REPLACEMENT SERVICES NEAR HARTFORD, CT
If your home's water pipes aren't functioning properly, it is crucial to seek repairs before matters get worse. Burst pipes can lead to a wide range of issues, including low water pressure, flooding in the yard, or even turning your drinking water into a health hazard. Depending on the type of pipes your home uses, there are a variety of methods for replacing your pipes. ADB Construction and Septic offers residential water line replacement services that can fix even the most damaged pipes.
Trenched pipes, which are common to many residences, require digging a large trench across the yard where the pipe then lies. Repairing these pipes can be a hassle, as it involves digging out large parts of your yard and can damage landscaping. However, pipe repairs and replacements are often much less invasive than full installations, as we may only need to replace a small section of the pipe.
If your home is equipped with trenchless pipes, the replacement process becomes much more convenient. Trenchless pipes can be replaced through one or two small entry holes in your yard using a process known as pipe bursting. This involves feeding a new pipe into the old one to replace it completely. Two additional methods of replacing trenchless pipes include pipe jacking, where a new pipe is hydraulically inserted into the old pipe, and pipelining, where a sturdy epoxy coating is used to seal old pipes.
LEAD PIPE REPLACEMENT
Many older homes were built with lead pipes and appliances, which are now known to be toxic and harmful to human health. Newer homes that are equipped with soldered copper pipes may also contain high levels of lead. In either case, it is important to replace lead pipes and soldering so that your drinking water is not contaminated.
Some of the more commonly used materials to replace pipes today include plastics and polymers such as PVC, PEX pipes, and polyethylene pipes. These materials are all commonly used for their flexibility and resistance to rust and corrosion. For main water lines, a more durable form of fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP pipes) is often used to withstand large amounts of water pressure.
Along with lead pipes, many older homes are often fitted with cast iron pipes. While these pipes do not pose a health risk in the way lead pipes do, they are often prone to corrosion and need replacing. If your home is fitted with lead or corroded cast iron pipes, we can replace these with more durable and safer alternatives.
