There are several reasons for water lines needing replacement in Fort Worth Texas, whether because of material failure, or surrounding areas being compromised. A broken or leaking water line requires immediate attention, and Schrader Plumbing should be your first call when you need an honest and fair quote on yours.
Homeowners may need to repair a leaking copper pipe in their home, but when it’s inside of a wall, or under a pier and beam or slab foundation, it’s difficult to access, and requires the proper tools for repair.
Water Line Testing
If you believe you have a water leak, due to hearing water running, or the meter spinning when all faucets are turned off, a test is required to move further. We use various means of testing, including gauges to find out if you truly have a water leak.
Water Line Locating
Once the test has revealed a water leak, the next phase is to locate it. Water leaks can be tricky, as you may hear it in one place, but it’s actually elsewhere. Our trained plumbers have the necessary training and experience to find out where the leak is coming from, whether under your slab or pier and beam foundation, or in a wall.
Water Line Repair
Once the water line is located, the plumber must access it, whether it be behind a sheetrock wall, or slab foundation. Once we have accessed the pipe, it can be repaired.
Water line repair may not require much more than digging up a small area and patching an existing pipe, or in some cases, a complete line replacement may be needed. If a replacement is the case, we have backhoes and trenchers available, and of course, we always take great care in leaving your home and yard the way we found it, or as close as possible.
If you are in need of water line repair or installation, make sure to call Schrader Plumbing today.
