PLUMBING

If your house older, chances are the original water plumbing pipes are most likely copper or galvanized steel, and the sewer pipes are cast iron, clay, or plastic. If you are seeing signs of corrosion and leaks, such as, discoloration, stains, dimpling, pimples, or flaking, it may be time to replace the plumbing. Another way to detect pipe corrosion is to look at the color of the water after a time away from the house, is it yellow, brown, or reddish? If it is, you’re probably looking at rust in the water, which is a sign of pipe corrosion.  Titan repairs the most common plumbing problems, which include:  drippy faucets, leaky pipes, running toilets, clogged drains, low water pressure, sump pump replacement, and water heater leaks.

DRIPPY FAUCET

A dripping faucet will waste water and increase your water bills; it could also keep you awake at night or cause minor flooding. Dripping water from a compression faucet, is usually the result of a worn out rubber washer.

LEAKY PIPE

Leaky pipes usually occur near the joints or as a result of corrosion.  Look for signs of wet spots on the ground, walls, or ceiling.  Water damage to your home should be addressed immediately.

TOILET REPAIR

Did you know that a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day?  Whether fixing a running toilet or a clogged toilet, Titan can get the job done.

CLOGGED DRAIN

Bathtub, sink, and shower drains can get plugged up with hair and detritus, and need to be cleaned out on a regular basis.

LOW WATER PRESSURE

Low water pressure can result from several different things: clogged faucet or showerheads, hidden leaks in the pipes, and corrosion in the pipes.

SUMP PUMP

Sump pumps can fail, and leave your basement full of water, especially after prolonged periods of rainy weather.

WATER HEATER LEAK

One of the most common water heater problems is mineral deposit buildup, which can be the cause of leaks in temperature, pressure relief, or drain values. Leaks in the water pipe fittings and joints can also occur, which can result in no hot water, or a reduction in water pressure.

RE-PLUMB HOUSE

When replacing your water pipes, there are several different types of pipe to choose from:  CPVC, copper, and PEX.  CPVC is “chlorinated polyvinyl chloride” plastic that has greater heat resistance and better impact strength than conventional PVC. Cross-linked polyethylene tubing, also known as PEX, is a flexible plastic hose.  Both CPVC and PEX will not corrode like copper does, but also, are not as durable as metal piping. When replacing sewer pipes indoors, the new pipes will be made of a plastic material such as PVC, or ABS which is “acrylonitrile butadiene styrene.”  PVC is white, more flexible and less durable; while ABS is black, highly durable with high impact strength, but decays when exposed to sunlight. However, both plastics are resistant to chemical and water degradation.
