Inspecting Your Water Lines

Do you inspect the water piping in your home?
A lot of folks do not. This ends up costing them hundreds if not thousands of dollars when those pipes choose to burst or spring a leak. Bi-Annual inspection of the water piping in your home is crucial, especially if you have an older home. Or if you have a home that was piped with Polybutylene or PEX piping when it first came on the scene.

Different common water piping:
Galvanized
– Prone to corroding from the inside out. The pipe gets smaller and smaller inside as rust builds up. No longer in use or to current standards.
Copper
– Wears thin over time. Still used today, but very costly.
Poly-B
– Used in the late 80s and early 90s. Turns brittle with age and will crumble apart or crackle. No longer in use. Recalled a long time ago.
PEX
– Q-Pex – Recalled. No longer in use and not up to todays standards.
– Current PEX production meets todays building standards. You may have brass or plastic fittings. Brass fittings have to be inspected routinely for corrosion. Different water conditions can speed up the corrosion process.

Here at Cain’s Able Plumbing, we are happy to schedule an inspection of the water lines (and sewer lines) in your home for condition and recommendations. The current cost for that at the time of this post is $190.00. (Plus tax and fees) Please call 704-857-1600 or 336-351-1602 to schedule your plumbing inspection today!

I was very happy with Cain’s. They came highly recommended. The drain in my basement was backing up due to the line being clogged. I called Cain’s and explained the situation. I spoke to Courtney and she was very polite and helpful. They came out the same day. They sent JT to my house. He was very professional and knowledgeable. I could not find where exactly where the drain was. He was able to locate it by how the ground slipped and it was where he thought it was was. He cleaned where the drain was and the water came pouring out. I was of course very happy. And even happier with the price, which I thought was very reasonable. I would definitely call them again if I have any other issues.

We had a leak from our toilet and shower. The techs came on time and went to work. They sealed the shower drain and changed the toilet tank seals. They also found that our washing machine was causing the leak in our laundry room. They cleaned up after themselves and were very professional and courteous. If we have anymore problems we will call Cains plumbing service.
