how to tell your water line needs to be replaced

Water Line Issues

If your home has galvanized water lines, your water flow may be weaker than normal. This is because lime and calcium build up inside your pipes. This decreases the volume of water available when using multiple fixtures. For example, your water pressure may lower when you shower and run the dishwasher at the same time.

You may also notice a change in the color of your water. If it’s brown, it may indicate rust in your pipes. You could have a leak. The only way to know for sure is to have it inspected by a professional.

Inside or outside your home, we have the knowledge and equipment to repair and re-pipe water lines. Give us a call at (510) 902-6456.

Sewer Line Clogs

If your sewer line clogs more than once a year, that could indicate a larger problem, such as a broken pipe or roots in your line. Either way, we have the camera equipment to see inside the sewer lines and determine the exact problem. Once we’ve inspected it, we will make recommendations with budget, so you can choose the right techniques to unclog even the toughest clogs.

“Alvaro was super helpful, polite, and professional. I did whole house copper repiping with him. Gave detail and well-priced quote and overview of what all work they will do. Arrived on time, performed job well, cleaned up everything and finished few hours before expectation. Followed up couple of times to check if everything is fine. Will definitely recommend Alvaro for any plumbing needs.”

Pipe & Sewer Line FAQs

There are a variety of reasons drains can clog. In the kitchen, grease that goes down the drain can build up. Solid foods can corrode your cast iron. In the bathroom, baby wipes (or any “flushable” wipes) can cause clogs. The best way to identify why your pipes are clogged is to call a professional plumber.

Pipes aren’t typically pliable enough to shift as the earth shifts. Instead, they develop a “belly,” or a larger section of pipe. This collects solids over time and can overload your pipes, causing them to break. Also, we often see tree roots grown into sewer lines. Additionally, main sewer lines can get damaged by roots and will need to be replaced.

To avoid sewer pipe breakage from tree roots, we recommend having a professional plumber run a snake through your sewer drains every six months to keep them clean and clear.

Copper and PEX (plastic) are both very good materials. PEX is newer and used by most modern builders. The lifetime of PEX is 50 to 75 years. However, copper is often used inside the walls of a home. In some places, the code requires it. The lifetime of copper pipes is 70 to 85 years.

Bay Water Plumbing has experience with all types of piping, including mainline extensions, remodels, moving toilets, adding showers, etc.

Everything we do is guaranteed to be up to code. Our work comes with a warranty, so you can be sure that once we fix the problem, it stays fixed.

If your sewer lines are accessible through a crawl space (most common), access for repiping work is relatively easy. If your home sits on a concrete slab, and your leak is under your house or in cement (less common), we will have to dig and/or break through cement to get to the line. We can also offer a reroute, where we run the new lines in the attic for a complete repipe of the water lines.

We use two types of materials for repiping. Copper can be used throughout the home. PEX (plastic) is made for hot and cold water. We typically use copper inside the walls and PEX from there.
