What Material to Consider for Your Water Line Installation
Whether you are just in the process of constructing your house from the ground up, or your current water line has become corroded and needs to be replaced, it is a good idea to be familiar with the materials that make up water lines. This will allow you to make the best decision for a water line installation that will fulfill all your needs for a long time.
In the past, houses usually were fitted with waterlines designed out of copper. Copper is relatively long-lasting, which enabled residents to avoid constant repairs since copper pipes often have a lifespan of 80 years.
Nowadays, houses tend to be constructed with PEX piping. PEX is admittedly not quite as durable as copper, which is only susceptible to tiny pinhole leaks. Nevertheless, PEX is much more affordable, and its flexibility allows it to be installed practically anywhere. If you are not sure which material would be better for your home, speak to one of our knowledgeable technicians.
Have you noticed that your water lines have not been working properly? Perhaps bits of debris, like dirt or rust, have begun to infiltrate your water? Alternatively, maybe the water pressure is so low that it feels like you are showering in a trickle. There are several culprits that could be damaging your waterline, some of which are not preventable, and some of which you can safeguard against with proactive steps.
Some of the most common causes of a damaged water line include:
- Tree roots – Even small roots are quite tough and strong, and they can be very harmful to your water line. As the roots are drawn to the water flowing throughout the pipes, they will find a way to worm their way through even the smallest cracks for moisture. Then the roots will eventually grow until they crush the pipe entirely.
- Mineral deposits – When minerals like calcium and magnesium accumulate, they cause hard water. As this calcified water flows through the line, it will eventually leave deposits all along the pipes until they are blocked.
- General corrosion – Over many years, even the toughest lines are going to wear away, whether from exposure to the elements or acidic materials in the soil.
