A part of the rapidly growing Charlotte metropolitan area, Monroe is a city and the county seat of Union County and where Superior Plumbing and Drains’ base of operations is located. Monroe was founded in 1843 and was named after US President James Monroe.
Monroe 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 larger than you could have ever anticipated, only to discover that it was caused by a toilet flapper. Your water cost can quadruple due to something as simple as an old toilet flapper that is not holding water. Toilet flappers are the rubber components in the toilet that will release the water that is being retained, causing the toilet to flush. When a flapper is blocked or damaged, it can discharge minute amounts of water that accumulate over the course of a month and cause your bill to soar through the roof. It is also quite difficult to detect this if you don’t know what to look for, but fortunately for you, Superior Plumbing and Drains, LLC are specialists at identifying water leaks. One of the most straightforward and frequent causes of high water bills is this.
Leak in the house
When leaks occur in your walls, ceilings, slab, crawlspace, and floors, they can cause the most damage. Call us, your 24-hour plumber, if you have an emergency since we have plumbers ready on call. Sometimes it is simple to locate these leaks, but occasionally it is difficult to fix them. The leaks in your crawl space would be the hardest to locate because most homeowners have never even seen their crawl space and don’t bother to look. Mold and mildew might grow as a result of their accumulation in the crawl space. Just 48 hours after a water leak in a wall establishes a breeding habitat for mold, the mold starts to spread. Although they are typically simple to locate, ceiling leaks require the most extensive sheetrock cutting to reach. We need to make room since the plumber needs to work on the ceiling, which is a challenging area. To stop 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 Monroe water leak to repair. Finding one is really challenging, and even realizing you have one is challenging. They are hidden beneath the concrete and typically don’t surface for a very long period. In order to make the repair, the leaky pipe must first be discovered and revealed by removing concrete. Floors will rise as a result, and the process of getting to the pipe will start. The concrete will need to be broken up with a jackhammer, and the dirt will need to be manually dug. Due to the time and effort required to disclose such a pipe, slab leaks are quite expensive. Normally, home insurance companies will cover the expense of removing the concrete but not of fixing the pipe.
Your yard will host yet another typical type of water leak. Every home has a water line that brings either well water or city water into the house. According to the N.C. Plumbing code, these are normally buried 18 inches underground. Often, it’s simple to identify water leaks in the yard. Although they can frequently be repaired, we always suggested replacing the line rather than making a repair. We often warn that if something leaks once, it will leak again. A repair is only a bandaid on a deeper problem in your yard. Water lines in particular fall under the scope of this statement. For a conventional water line installation, we need to call 811 to find your utility lines, including gas, electrical, internet, and cable. Once found, it is safe to excavate in your yard without disturbing these wires. We’ll 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 beneath the house and connect it to the existing mainline there for crawlspaces. After lines have been found and dug, we start digging with our mini-excavator. working my way up from the meter to your house. Our employees are true pros that have received training on this excavator. The water line will be installed with a PRV, shut-off, and box after being dug. The high water pressure that the new line and fixtures all over the house are subjected to will be lessened by the PRV. To avoid freezing during our winters, it will be 18 inches deep. If the homeowner requests it, we will lay down grass seed and hay straw after our line has been installed and inspected.
Improving your water lines lifespan
PRV (City water only)
All new home today must have a PRV, or pressure reducing valve, for city water exclusively. A home’s pressure should be no more than 80 psi, but PRVs will reduce it to 80 to 65 psi, protecting the entire system. The city must increase the pressure in a certain location as the population grows and more homes are constructed. Given Monroe, North Carolina’s rapid growth, you should arm yourself with a new PRV now rather than later. When it is least used, at night, this pressure will likewise rise more. Without a PRV, this can happen and harm all of your home’s water pipes. Installations in a separate meter box with a shut-off should be placed in front of your city meter, as per our company’s recommendation. This will safeguard both the fixtures within your house and the complete line that enters it.
Well switches, tanks and more.
While wells operate somewhat differently than city water, they produce the same results in the end. transporting water from one location to another. A well pump and a few more tools are used in this operation to extract the water from the ground and deliver it to your house. The pump, bladder tank, and pressure switch are the common components of a well. You get water because of these three essential ingredients. The bladder tank retains a specific volume of water and maintains pressure; the pump raises the water. Then, the well switch turns on and pushes the water to you at a specific Pressure. At all times, these gadgets must communicate with one another. After that, the line is run to your house from a well house. The water is pressured by a tank set at a specific PSI, so a PRV is not necessary. Every two years, a complete inspection of this system is advised.
An equipment used to control the pressure brought on by thermal expansion is known as an expansion tank. When water is heated by your water heater, the water expands, increasing the pressure and taxing the system. The expansion tank’s balloon-like interior allows it to absorb the additional pressure.
