Gastonia is the largest city and the county seat of Gaston County, North Carolina. As of 2019, the city boasted a population of 77,273. I-85 links several of the biggest cities in North Carolina with Gastonia.  Gastonia is the second location for Superior Plumbing and Drains.

Gastonia Water Leaks

Leaks on your property can cause you headaches unlike any other; one day, you receive a bill in the mail that is far greater than you could have ever anticipated, only to discover that the source of the problem was a toilet flapper. Your water cost can quadruple due to something as simple as an old toilet flapper that isn’t holding water. The rubber components known as toilet flappers are what allow the toilet to flush by releasing the water that has been held in reserve. When a flapper is blocked or damaged, it can leak minute amounts of water that have accumulated over the course of a month, skyrocketing your bill. If you don’t know what to look for, it is also very difficult to detect this, but fortunately for you, Superior Plumbing and Drains, LLC are specialists at identifying water leaks. One of the easiest and most frequent causes of high water bills is this.

Leak in the house

When leaks are found in your walls, ceilings, slab, crawlspace, and floors, they can do the most damage. Call us, your 24-hour plumber, if you have an emergency because we have plumbers waiting to help you. These leaks are sometimes simple to locate but difficult to repair. The leaks in your crawl space would be the hardest to uncover because most homeowners have never even seen their crawl space and aren’t interested in looking. In the crawl space, they can accumulate and cause mold and mildew. Within 48 hours of a water leak in a wall, mold can start to develop and spread because it has a place to settle. Although they are typically simple to locate, ceiling leaks need the most sheetrock cutting to reach. We need to make space since the plumber needs to work on the ceiling, which is a challenging area. To avoid further damage or mold growth throughout the house, a water restoration specialist may need to be brought in if the water incursion is severe enough.

Slab Leak

A slab leak in Gastonia would be the most challenging to repair. Finding them is really challenging, and even realizing you have one is challenging. They are hidden beneath the concrete and typically take a very long time to surface. Once the leaky pipe has been located, it must be revealed by removing concrete in order to conduct the necessary repairs. Floors will rise as a result, and work on getting to the pipe will start. The concrete will need to be dismantled using a jackhammer, and the dirt will need to be manually dug. Due to the amount of labor and effort required to disclose such a pipe, slab leaks are quite expensive. The expense of removing the concrete is normally covered by homeowners insurance, but the pipe is not usually repaired.

Yard Leaks

Your yard is a popular place for water leaks to occur. Every house has a water line that supplies it with either well water or water from the city. According to N.C. Plumbing code, these are normally buried 18 inches underground. Typically, water leaks in the yard are visible. Even though they can frequently be repaired, we always suggested replacing the line rather than making a repair. We usually emphasize that if something leaks once, it will leak again, so a repair is only a band-aid on a broader issue in your yard. In particular, this notion holds true for water lines. In order to find your utility lines, including gas, electrical, internet, and cable, we must dial 811 for a normal water line installation. Once found, it is safe to dig without disturbing these lines in your yard. We will dig up with a shovel where the water line is supposed to enter your home and in front of your meter. We run our new line underneath the house and connect it to the existing mainline there for crawlspaces. Once the lines have been found and dug, we start the digging procedure with our mini-excavator. working my way from the meter to your house. Our employees are truly professionals at what they do and have received training on this excavator. The water line will be fitted with a PRV, shut-off, and box once it has been dug. The high water pressure that the new line and fixtures throughout the house are subjected to will be lessened by the PRV. In order to avoid freezing during our winters, it will be 18 inches deep. At the homeowner’s request, we will lay down grass seed and hay straw after our line has been built and inspected.

Improving your water lines lifespan

PRV (City water only)

All new home nowadays must have a PRV, or pressure reducing valve (only for city water). A home’s pressure should be no more than 80 psi, but PRVs will lower it to 80 to 65 psi, protecting the entire system. When the population rises and new homes are built the city is required to raise the pressure in a given area. With Gastonia, North Carolina’s growth rate being what it is, you should arm yourself with a new PRV now rather than later. This pressure will also increase more at night when its use is the lowest. When this happens it can affect all water piping in your home without a PRV. Installations in a separate meter box with a shut-off, in front of your city meter, are what our firm advises. This will safeguard not just the fixtures inside your house but also the complete line entering it.

Well switches, tanks and more.

Wells work a little bit differently than city water but ultimately has the same end result. Getting water from one place to another. This process happens by using a well pump, along with a few other devices to bring the water out of the ground and into your home. A well usually consists of the pump, bladder tank, and pressure switch. These 3 key components are what give you water. The pump brings up the water, the bladder tank holds a certain amount of water and keeps it pressurized. The well switch then kicks on and pushes that water to you at a given PSI. These devices must work together at all times. The line then leaves a well house and is run to your home. A PRV is not required due to the water being pressurized by a tank set at a certain PSI. It is recommended to have this system thoroughly inspected every 2 years.

Expansion Tank

An expansion tank is an apparatus used to limit the pressure caused by thermal expansion. When your water is heated by your water heater, the water is expanding raising the pressure putting more strain on the system. The expansion tank absorbs this increased pressure due to its balloon-like innards.

    Superior plumbing is an excellent organization we have used them for years. Their customer service always seems to get back to me if I need something and we just recently had them install a hybrid hot water tank. This was a job that was … More a little bit more technical than a regular hot water tank and they did it with ease and at a fair price to both Us and them. We are still waiting for the inspection of the permitting process with Union county and I don't expect any problems. From our experience with this organization we will continue to use them in the future.

    Superior Plumbing arrived the day we called about our water heater. The technicians that came were Michael and Alex who were professional and knowledgeable. The business owner Tim also came by to assist his crew. They worked late and we … More had hot water by the end of the day. All the people at Superior seemed dedicated to provide the best service possible which was a blessing to us.

    I was very pleased with the service from Superior Plumbing and Drains from start to finish.
    Most companies advertise that they are available 24/7 and they are not. I actually contact 3 other companies before finding this company.
    I called
    … More at 12:15am, was emailed at 12:38am and the technician was at my house at 12:50am. Michael came in and assessed the problem, gave an estimate, made the repair and was finished by 1:15am.
    Michael was very professional and he knows his stuff. If you ever need plumbing services, please contact Superior Plumbing and Drains. Ask for Michael.
