Most frequently asked questions for our plumbers in Sonora Ca
1) When should I consider replacing water pipes, gas pipes, or waste pipes in my home?
When your plumbing is no longer functioning properly, or requires constant plumbing repairs it is probably time to re-pipe your home. Plumbing problems can include leak repairs, rattling pipes, unsafe gas lines, drain clogs that require cleaning, or even low flow through the water lines. If you have these problems you should call plumbers in Sonora Ca from Optimized Plumbing & Piping to give you a quote on replacing your old pipes. Just like any other part of your home the pipes need updating. Updating the pipes in your home can be a great investment if you can save money from leak repairs, drain clogs, or damaged property due to water damage. Not to mention the peace of mind you’ll have from knowing you won’t have any plumbing issues.
2) What kind of plumbing maintenance should I have done?
Even if you can’t see a problem with your problem doesn’t mean you should ignore it. Plumbers in Sonora Ca from Optimized Plumbing & Piping can perform regular water pressure checks, water heater maintenance and repair, leak checks for gas lines etc. Many times pressure regulating valves go bad and cause leaks inside the home from excessive pressure. This can easily be caught before damage occurs with a simple pressure guage. Checking for underground leaks regularly can save thousands of gallons of water because many times when a pipe leaks between the meter and the home people won’t know until it turns into a big leak, and they get their next water bill. A simple plumbing check up could catch these things before they cause a big problem.
3) What precautions can I take to minimize damage if I do have a water leak?
Shut off valves are something that is commonly neglected because it can be many years between uses and when you go to use it you find out that it won’t actually shut the water off. You should consider having a new ball valve installed to replace your old shut off valve before a problem hits. Another thing that should be replaced more frequently in many homes are the angle stops and flex lines. An angle stop should be present where any water pipe comes out of the wall to supply a fixture with water. These angle stops can stop working correctly, or even start leaking over time and should be replaced. The flex lines that go between the angle stop and the fixture should also be replaced to prevent a blowout and water damage which can result from old flex lines.
4) What does it cost to have plumbers in Sonora Ca from Optimized Plumbing & Piping come out and perform service or repair?
Prices vary for almost every task, but we can give an upfront price for almost any job that includes material and labor. When you call us we dispatch local plumbers in Sonora Ca to find your problem, give you a price to solve that problem, and fix it with top quality parts. Our plumbers are clean and respectful of you, your family, and property from start to finish. We have different prices for our 24/7 emergency plumbing service but it is still a great value because you won’t find anyone else who will come to your aid faster, and with more skilled plumbers than Optimized Plumbing & Piping.
5) How long do water heaters last?
Most tank water heaters last between 10-12 years on average. This is because many people skip the maintenance we recommend that could make the tank last longer. Without this maintenance the tank will begin to corrode, and eventually leak. many times the first sign of a water heater going bad is a leaking tank which can cause damage if it is in a finished area of the home.
