Pipe Repair & Installation

The supply of water that helps make our homes function is generally out of sight, out of mind, since it courses through the pipes hidden behind our walls. But when drains get clogged or pipes begin to leak or burst for any number of reasons, there’s no time to waste. They need to be attended to by someone who has the expertise and knowledge that will return your home to a functioning and safe condition.

You could also have problems with your water supply that cause lower water pressure, which can have a far reaching impact on everything from showering to watering the lawn.

The pros at Simpson Plumbing fully understand the ins and outs of installing and repairing residential pipe systems. When we answer your call, we’ll not only take care of your needs; we’ll make sure no other lingering issues are waiting for you on the horizon, potentially saving you money on future repairs.

 

Diagnosis and Repair

Simpson Plumbing has specialized leak detection equipment to help find that pesky pinhole leak in your water pipe wherever it may be. But before we bring out the high-tech gear … we will verify that the leak is on the water main. This is done by shutting off the house valve. Next we will take a look at the water meter to see if the dial is moving. If the dial doesn’t move, we will do a thorough inspection of your house from your water pipes to your fixtures to find the leak.

If the leak is on the water main and it isn’t obvious where it’s at, we can use various forms of high-tech leak detection equipment to pinpoint the source.

We can also diagnose the following problems:

  • Leaking water pipes
  • Hissing or dripping sounds
  • Low water pressure
  • Rust or sediment in pipes
  • Discoloration of water
  • Rattling or banging water pipes
  • No water pressure
  • Water has an odor to it
  • Whole house/building re-pipes
  • Water service installs
  • Partial house/building re-pipes
  • Water service repair
  • Leak detection
  • Sewer and vent pipe repair
  • Sewer and vent pipe new installs

We use Zurn PEX pipe and fittings with a 25-year manufacturer warranty against breaking or cracking due to normal use. Please see the manufacturer for the exact warranty details.

Repiping Services in Vancouver, WA

Repiping is one of most extensive remodeling — or, more accurately, plumbing retrofit — projects that a homeowner or property owner can undertake. But it’s also one of the wisest, especially in older homes, since a repiping project means your older home will have new pipes that will almost certainly last another lifetime.

That’s good news. Even better news: As extensive as a repiping project sounds (after all, it takes a decent-sized network of pipes to get clean water into your home), most home repiping projects can be completed in just one or two days! You won’t even have to leave your home while work is going on (unless you want to, of course!), and plumbers should be able to restore running water to at least some parts of the house while work is going on.

What Are Repiping Plumbing Services?

As the name suggests, when plumbers repipe your home, they replace existing incoming-water pipes — either metallic (galvanized steel, iron, or copper) or nonmetallic (PVC, CPVC or PE) — with new hot and cold water pipes.

By the way, PVC is unplasticized polyvinyl chloride; CPVC is chlorinated polyvinyl chloride; PE is polyethylene.

There’s also PEX, or cross-linked polyethylene. (The more you know … !)

When customers inquire about a repiping job, it’s typically because something somewhere has sprung a leak. Rather than simply trying to patch up the leak, it’s often a better idea to repipe the whole house. This is because when older pipes begin to fail, they can often cause a chain reaction of failures down the line. So, instead of fixing the problem piecemeal (which can end up costing a fortune), it’s usually better and more economical to replace the whole system.

Note: There are two systems that serve most residential homes connected to a city’s water and sewer supply lines: The system that brings clean drinking water into the home, and the one that drains wastewater away from the house. The highly skilled plumbers at Simpson Plumbing are qualified to handle both systems for residential and commercial properties.
