Plumbing Inspection & Repairs

Lichtfeld Plumbing can inspect your pipes and work with you on finding the best resolution to all your plumbing troubles!

Repiping is the process of replacing all old pipes in a building. Galvanized pipes can rust and deteriorate over time, resulting in low water pressure, dirty, foul-smelling water that’s unfit to drink, or drastic temperature fluctuations in the shower when someone flushes the toilet. Soft copper pipes under a concrete slab can fracture and leak over time. In old structures, one may even find lead pipes, which can pose a serious health hazard to children. Repiping is not a band-aid for minor plumbing issues. Rather it is a full solution to major system weaknesses that, once done, can save a property owner money in the long run, not to mention peace of mind.

 

Leaks can indicate a bigger problem, such as the need for repiping, or it can be the sign for a minor issue, which is why leak detection is so important. Caught early enough, small leaks can be repaired before they become costly repairs.

Replacing old toilets with new low flush models can save you money on your water bill, which can add up to big savings over time. Of course, you may want to replace your toilet for cosmetic reasons or because of recurring problems. However, some problems can be fixed without the larger expense of replacing the toilet. Issues to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace a toilet include:

  • Loose handle, bad valve, or broken flapper? These items can be easily repaired within your existing toilet.
  • Got a leak around the base? A new wax ring might be just the fix you need.
  • Cracked porcelain? Replace the toilet before the crack becomes a break.
  • Recurring clogs? A newer model could be the answer, especially if you’re plunging the toilet more than once a week!

 

 

Drain cleaning is a proactive, preemptive approach to home maintenance that prevents major blockages and costly repairs.

Blocked drains reduce the effectiveness of your disposal system, which can result in foul odors and increased bacteriological growth within your home. Clogs and blockages can cause organic waste to accumulate inside pipes, causing wear and tear on the materials used to plumb your home or business.

You don’t have to wait for waste water to back up into your home or office before you can do something about it. Contact Lichtfeld Plumbing for an annual inspection. We can snake your pipes and/or televise your sewer lines to ensure that your entire disposal system works at peak proficiency, increasing the life of your plumbing, saving you money in the long run, and giving you peace of mind.
