PIPING AND REPIPING

Benefits of copper pipe installation
Copper piping is naturally antimicrobial and thus cannot support the growth of bacteria, fungi or viruses. Copper piping is durable and flexible, making it easy to install. It offers several other advantages as well. Copper piping resists corrosion and can be used in outdoor applications. It is also weather-resistant and safer in natural disasters than other types of piping. But copper piping is more expensive than PEX or PVC piping, because copper is a precious metal. Furthermore, copper is resistant to burning and will not release toxic gases in a fire. Copper pipes are slightly elastic, making them ideal for earthquakes because they don’t snap. Copper piping is also recyclable, making it a more sound environmental choice. Installing copper pipes in your home makes your plumbing system more efficient. Copper is a good conductor of heat, and as such, your hot water lines remain hot, and your shower heads and faucets can deliver even hotter showers. There are two types of copper piping used in the plumbing industry, Type “L” and type “M.” Of the two, type “L” is thicker and more resilient, and your best choice for longevity and quality.
Developed in the 1960s, PEX has been used in Europe for decades but was only introduced to the U.S. in the 1980s. Since the 1980s, many plumbers and water systems managers have chosen to use cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) piping to provide water throughout homes and properties. PEX tubing has largely replaced polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping as one of the most popular tools of the trade thanks to its superior durability and versatility. We were one of the best plumbing companies to embrace the many uses of PEX piping and offer our services for maintenance and problem solving specially for plumbing systems of this sort. We can help you update your system by repairing your existing PEX system or installing a new one. Our plumbers are friendly, professional, reliable and always get the job done right. We are highly trained, and have experience with all types of pipe repair.
Benefits of PEX Pipe installation
PEX is less expensive than copper and doesn’t transfer heat as readily, therefore conserving energy. The manufacturer also provides a 15-25 year guarantee!
PEX piping is both durable and flexible (and quieter) than other pipe materials.
PEX piping works well in hard to access areas and curves easily, leaving fewer areas for potential leaks. Copper piping requires joints to go around curves. PEX is very flexible, which allows for a faster installation. Also, it will minimize excavation to your property, as less access points will need to be dug in order to put it in. It is impossible for water, acid, or chemicals to corrode PEX piping. Colder weather can be highly destructive to certain types of pipes, as water in the pipes will freeze putting intense pressure on the system. PEX pipes can expand up to three times their normal size. Whether you’re considering PEX or copper piping for your next home project, we are your source for professional piping installation.
If your water pipes frozen from the extreme cold temperatures you should call us and we will fix it all!
If your pipes are not properly insulated and covered, the frozen water can create major pressure and ultimately lead to cracks, leaks, or bursts. We’ll act quickly to diagnose the problem and thaw your pipes before they burst, preventing thousands of dollars in water damage!
We have the experience to identify the source of your frozen pipe, limit further damage, fix the problem area and insulate the pipe to prevent future problems. Water sprinkler lines, outdoor hoses, plumbing in unheated interiors, such as in the basement, garage, etc., outdoor pipes with no insulation are the most vulnerable to freezing. If you have frozen pipes first of all you will need to shut off the water main leading into the structure to reduce pressure on frozen pipes and minimize flooding if the pipes burst. Then use a hair dryer to thaw the ice blockage if the frozen pipe is exposed and visible.
If frozen pipes are not visible call IPlumber LA and we will help you! If you notice slower water flow and expect frozen pipes, you should call to our plumber immediately. Typically, issues like this can be resolved before any damage occurs.
