Where We Do Pipe Repair
Why Pipe Leaks and Drain Leaks Happen
Pipes and drains can become leaky over time due to age. Especially Poly B pipes. Some insurance companies won’t insure you for water damage if you still have these in your home. In this case, we can swap out the old with new copper or Pex Pipe.
Pipes and drains corrode for several reasons. Hard, mineral-rich water scrapes away at the inside of pipes harder than softer water. The acidic chemicals in many drain cleaners eat away at your pipes over time. We always recommend you avoid these products. Also when pipes are improperly fitted together, metals with opposing charges can wear each other down causing corrosion.
The longer you let your pipes corrode, the worse the problem gets. There is no reliable way to fix corroded pipes. If your pipes corrode, you should have them replaced right away. Our professionals can also help you determine the cause of the corrosion and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Grease and hair build up inside pipes and drains over time. Small objects often get lodged inside pipes after someone accidentally flushes them down a drain. Corrosion on the inside of pipes restricts water movement over time and leads to clogs.
No matter how they happen, clogs are one of the most common causes of leaking pipes and drains. They cause back-ups, which drive up the pressure in your pipes and lead to leaks. We can open up the pipes, remove clogs, and get everything back in proper working order.

Other times if the pipes are just too old and we know that you are going to continue to need leak repairs, we may recommend a complete repiping of the system, which may be needed to ensure that there are no problems in the foreseeable future.

Water Line or Drain Replacement
In some cases like mentioned above, some pipes and drains just can’t be fixed and replacement is needed.

The Hazards of Leaky Pipes And Drains
Sometimes leaky pipes are considered only a small problem that can be ignored until further damage warrants a larger job. What many fail to realize, however, is that leaky pipes can cause much greater problems.
1) Mold is a big one.
Whether a leak is visible or hidden within the walls of your home, it can promote the growth of molds and other fungi. These growths spread and produce spores. Even if you’re not allergic to molds, they are dangerous to your health. Plus it just looks terrible.
2) Structural Damage to your home.
Though water is extremely useful, if it is left to leak or flow freely outside of your home’s plumbing systems, it can cause serious structural damage to your property. Leaks can warp walls and floorboards, and even cause dangerous damage to electrical systems if it is leaking near them.
3) Water Bills.
The wasted water will affect your monthly water bill. Depending on the size and rate of your leak, you could be wasting 10% or more of your water expenses.
Professional pipe maintenance can help prevent these problems if detected and repaired early. While some leaks are easy to locate and fix by yourself, many are harder to find and more complicated to repair. For the tough jobs, we recommend hiring a professional plumber like B. Johnston Plumbing Ltd to take care if the problem. Contact us for details.
