McAdenville Water Leaks
Small-town McAdenville, North Carolina is located in Gaston County. NC’s Gastonia and Charlotte are both close by. Due to its custom of lighting up the town for Christmas every year, McAdenville is referred to as “Christmas Town USA” in the locals’ lingo. 673 people called the town home as of 2019. Many wonderful clients of Superior Plumbing and Drains, LLC are in the neighborhood.
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. It is also very hard to catch this if you don’t know what to look for but lucky for you, Superior Plumbing and Drains, LLC, are experts at spotting water leaks. This is one of the simplest issues and a very common one for high water bills.
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 grow and spread because it has a place to settle. Although they are typically simple to locate, ceiling leaks require the most sheetrock cutting to access. 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.
A slab leak would be the most challenging of the McAdenville water leaks 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 make 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.
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 process 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)
Today, a PRV, or pressure reducing valve, is necessary in every new house. 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. The city must increase the pressure in a certain area when the population grows and new dwellings are constructed. With McAdenville, North Carolina’s rapid growth, you should arm yourself with a new PRV now rather than later. Additionally, when it is least used—at night—this pressure will rise more. Without a PRV, this can happen and impact all of your home’s water piping. 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.
Although wells operate somewhat differently from city water, they produce the same results in the end. transfer of water from one location to another. The water is extracted from the ground and brought into your home using a well pump and a few other tools. Typically, the pump, bladder tank, and pressure switch make up a well. You get water from these three essential ingredients. The bladder tank stores a specific volume of water and maintains pressure as the pump raises the water. Then, at a specific PSI, the well switch turns on and pushes water to you. These systems must always communicate with one another. The line is then run from a well house to your house. Due to the water being pressured by a tank set at a specific PSI, a PRV is not necessary. It is advised that this system undergo a comprehensive inspection every two years.
A device used to control the pressure brought on by thermal expansion is known as an expansion tank. The system is put under extra stress when your water heater heats your water since the water expands, increasing the pressure. The expansion tank’s balloon-like interior allows it to absorb the added pressure.
