Problem: Copper Pipes with Pin-Hole Leaks
Dallas country water has a corrosive effect on copper water pipes. This means that over time, your copper pipes will become corroded. As this corrosion occurs, copper oxide and lead from the solder joints are released into the drinking water. A ultrasonic leak detector can locate holes, but eventually the entire piping system will require replacement. This is because the interior of the pipe will get thin out and new leaks will keep popping up. This procedure of replacing the piping system is called a re-pipe. Call on Metro-Flow Plumbing Dallas technicians today to learn more about our re-piping methods. We have the best plumbers in Dallas!
Problem: Polybutylene Pipe Issues
Polybutylene is a soft, gray plastic pipe that was popular in the plumbing field between the mid-1970's and the mid-1990's. Over time it proved to be an unreliable material because of deterioration. If you purchased a house, mobile home, or other structure in any U.S. state after September 12, 1999, it may contain polybutylen as part of it’s plumbing structure. The manufacturers of polybutylene are participating in a pipe replacement program at a zero cost to the homeowners. If your Dallas home’s plumbing is composed of polybutylene pipe with plastic or metal insert fittings and was installed between January 1, 1978 and July 31, 1995, you may be eligible for a re-pipe at no cost. Call Metro-Flow Plumbing right away if you have concerns about your pipes and a Dallas plumber will be happy to come inspect your home for polybutylene pipes.
