Solutions for Improving Your Plumbing’s Lifespan & Preventing Leaks
While our water leak repair services are here for Charlotte, NC, homeowners in times of emergencies, our technicians are dedicated to helping you find solutions that prevent leaks from occurring in the first place. We recommend the installation of water leak detectors, pressure-reducing valves, well switches and tanks, and water heater expansion tanks.
Water Leak Detectors
Discovering a water leak in your home can be a stressful and costly experience. The key to avoiding such mishaps is to be proactive, and with the Flo Smart Water Monitor and Shutoff, you can do just that. This innovative technology allows you to monitor and secure your home’s water from your smartphone. You can receive live updates on flow rate, pressure, and ambient temperature, giving you full control from anywhere. Flo by MOEN can also automatically shut off your water valve when it detects a leak, whether you’re home or away.
To expand your home’s protection and prevent the need for emergency leak repair, pair your Flo device with Smart Leak Detectors, which monitor for weather and appliance-related leaks. Our expert technicians can help you install these water leak detectors. We offer installation services for two connection sizes, ¾” and 1”. Don’t hesitate to contact us to safeguard your home and finances from water damage.
PRV (City Water Only)
A pressure-reducing valve (PRV) is required in any new home. This valve will bring your home’s water pressure down to the acceptable range of 65 to 80 psi, preventing unnecessary strain on your piping. We recommend installing the PRV in front of your city meter in its own meter box with a shutoff. This will protect the entire line going into your home, along with the fixtures inside the house.
Well Switches & Tanks
Wells bring water into homes by using well pumps, bladder tanks, and pressure switches. The pump brings up the water, the bladder tank holds a certain amount of water and keeps it pressurized, and the well switch kicks on and pushes that water to you at a given psi. If your well system is missing any of these components or has worn parts, you must get them replaced or repaired right away. Otherwise, you could end up with costly water leaks. We recommend having your well system thoroughly inspected every two years.
A water heater expansion tank is an apparatus used to limit the pressure caused by thermal expansion. When your water is heated, it expands, raising the pressure and putting more strain on the heater. The expansion tank absorbs this increased pressure due to its balloon-like components. If you need an expansion tank, don’t hesitate to contact our water heater installation team.
