If you have a flood caused by faulty plumbing, call the plumbing technicians at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
You and a friend went over to the Crystal River Preserve State Park for a long bike ride this morning. You had fun but you were horrified to hear that your friend had been coping with a flooded house caused by a leaking pipe that finally burst. Now you’re wondering if there’s anything you can do to keep your plumbing pipes from leaking.
You’ll be glad to know there are precautions that can reduce the possibility of a plumbing leak.
The first, according to houselogic.com, is to reduce the water pressure in the pipes if it’s high. You can do this by adjusting the water pressure regulator. If you don’t have a water pressure regulator, you’ll need a licensed professional to install one, but that’s a lot less expensive than repairing or replacing a leaking pipe.
You can also reduce stress in your pipes by softening your water if it’s hard.
“If your water has a high mineral content—known as hard water—it can shorten the lifespan of your home’s pipes, resulting in plumbing leaks. Those naturally occurring minerals, usually magnesium or calcium, build up inside pipes and restrict flow, increasing the pressure. Plus, they can corrode joints and fittings,” houselogic.com says.
You can have a plumber install a water softener. Again, that’s a lot less expense and hassle than recovering from a broken pipe.
