ATLANTA PIPE REPAIR LEAK PLUMBING
Copper Pipe Plumbing Water Leak Repair, Atlanta
Plumber Atlanta offers superb copper pipe repair services for a reasonable price. Out of all the homes across the country, a very large percentage are piped in copper waterlines. Copper is very strong, plentiful, and resistant to various temperature and pressure changes. In addition to being used for interior waterlines, it is also used for exterior water mains and service lines and has been used for several decades. It is not, however, immune to fault. Copper waterlines have their downsides, and when one of these faults rears its head, we are here to help with stellar Atlanta copper pipe repair.
Copper pipe has a very long average service life, ranging from 50-70 years. If installed correctly and carefully, you will likely never have a leak. However, leaks can occur for a number of reason, with poor pipe installation being the most common reason. If the copper lines are connected too hastily or incorrectly, leaks will surface at the joints. In these cases, we can perform copper pipe repair by simply removing the damaged or leaking pipe and replacing it with a new one. Freeze breaks also cause problems that require copper pipe repair. This type of leak is most common during the winter season. When temperatures suddenly drop below freezing, the water inside the pipes freezes and expands, splitting the copper pipe along its axis. Like with other leaks, we can remove the damaged section of pipe and repair it for you very easily.
Copper is an economy driven product. Therefore, prices for copper repair and copper re-pipes will rise and fall with the market. Copper is readily available almost anywhere, but the prices can sometimes surprise you; they are typically rather steep. Standard copper piping also offers little in the way of flexibility. It is for these reasons that plastic piping (i.e. CPVC or PEX) is becoming the more popular and cost-effective way to make repairs and re-pipe a home. CPVC and PEX (polyethylene) are both very durable, are more resistant to temperature than copper, are very flexible, and are much less expensive. Generally, CPVC and PEX piping cost roughly 1/8 of what copper does, and repairs made in it can be almost half the price.
