A Valve in the Right Place
We have been in the plumbing business for more than 20 years and we have seen a lot of different problems in homes. One of the most common problems is the lack of valves. This is especially true in older homes. Being able to shut off your waterlines or gas lines with a valve is important. If you have a pipe break, or you have a faucet that needs to be replaced, having valves allow you the ability to turn off the gas or water and make the repair. If you need work on any gas lines, you should always leave that work to a licensed professional. The last thing you want in your home is a gas leak. With Team Electric Plumbing & Air, you are getting the best plumber in the business. We will help you diagnose problems and find the right fix for any plumbing job.
Pipe and Valve Corrosion
If you look under a sink and see a crusty white to green build up on your shut off valves, that is a sign of corrosion. The movement of water sheds electrons, and creates a charge. The resulting electrical charge strips metal ions and deposits them further down the line. That is the corrosion you see on the valves beneath your sink and behind your toilet. If you attempt to turn off a valve, it may lead to leaking that is difficult to stop, and before you know it, you’ll be on your hands and knees late into the night trying frustrated over a situation you can’t control. Corrosion happens faster if the metals in your water system are farther apart on the galvanic scale. Corrosion can be reduced by using plastic fittings, pipe grease, or having the metals in your plumbing system close on the galvanic scale. As the corrosion continues, your pipes and valves can begin to leak. If you notice significant amounts of corrosion, Team Electric Plumbing & Air can replace the valves, pipes and anything else you need. We can use flexible PEX pipes to reduce the amount of demolition, and stand by our work knowing you will be completely satisfied with our work.
