Monday, August 3rd, 2020

closeup-hands-under-waterYou have probably encountered this before: you come back home after a vacation of one to two weeks. You turn on the faucet in the bathroom or the kitchen, and the first water to flow out is reddish-brown. Nothing to worry about, it will go away in less than a minute as the dry pipes clear out residue.

But what if water discoloration starts at a different time? One day you turn on your faucet, and the water that comes out is rusty-red, green, or even black. It might be harmless, but it also could be a warning sign of problems in the plumbing system or even a health hazard. We recommend you call us for plumbing service in Sun City, AZ, to see what’s wrong, and what we can do about it. (more…)

Symptoms of a Slab Leak and How an Emergency Plumber Can Help

Monday, March 30th, 2020

How Corrosion Can Occur in Your Pipes

Monday, June 24th, 2019

corroded-pipesCorrosion is one of the worst enemies a home’s plumbing system can face. The word corrosion comes from the Latin word “to chew,” and it’s appropriate. Corrosion chews into the metal of pipes and eats it away. The metal weakens to the point where leaks begin, breaks occur, and eventually, the pipes fail completely. Corrosion in freshwater pipes can also lead to toxins entering the water.

Advances in piping materials have made corrosion less of a problem than it once was, but it is still a major issue you might have to deal with in your home’s plumbing in Sun City, AZ at some point. If you live in a house with old plumbing pipes (earlier than 1970), the chance of corrosion is even higher. (more…)
