Sewer & Water Line Repair or Installation Services
Nowadays, there’s a wide variety of pipes to choose from when it comes to your home. Some common ones include PEX, PVC, ABS, and copper. The life cycle of the plumbing system in your household will vary depending on the type of pipes behind your walls. If you notice discolored drywall or wet floors, there may be a broken water pipe on your property. Give the team at our plumbing company a call to book a sewer or water line repair appointment.
Ordinary Types of Pipes in Homes
Do you need to replace the pipes behind your walls or beneath your foundation? Let’s take a look at the different types of pipes and the advantages of each.
- Polyethylene Cross-Linked Pipes (PEX)
Most popularly used for water supply lines, polyethylene pipes, or PEX pipes, are an affordable solution that eliminates the risk of rust or corrosion due to its plastic tubing. PEX pipes are also easy to install, thanks to their high flexibility.
In addition to its flexible plastic tubing, PEX pipes also have its own shut off valve for easy access when needing to easily turn the water off for fixtures.
- Copper Pipes & Their Applications
Most popularly used for water supply lines, copper pipes are a perfect solution that do not affect the quality of the water. Because of its metal exterior, copper pipes are also more durable, surprisingly lightweight, and less harmful for the environment. To install copper pipes, you will need to hire an emergency plumber to remove your old pipes and connect your new water or sewage pipes.
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Pipes
Most popularly used for drain, waste, and vent pipes, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a go-to for your home’s sewage system. Benefits of the PVC pipe include chemical resistant, quicker installment time, leak-free joints, lower cost, long service life, as well as tree root intrusion resistance.
- Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Pipes
Also commonly used for drain, waste, and vent pipes, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a black pipe most often found in a tub, sink, or toilet drain.
ABS pipes are very much similar to the PVC when it comes to benefits. However, ABS pipes are a little more durable in high-impact situations and cannot be exposed to direct sunlight.
- Galvanized Pipes
Although galvanized pipes are another pipe type, these are longer utilized for water supply and drain lines in homes. This is primarily due to the galvanized pipes’ tendency to rust over time.
At the end of their life cycle, a galvanized pipe will rust. This negatively impacts the quality of your drinking water and puts you and your family’s health in jeopardy. If you live in an older home and discover that you have galvanized pipes, we recommend you replace your galvanized pipes with copper or PEX pipes.
Gas & Electric Water Heater Repair, Installation, & Replacement Services
Gas and electric water heaters are an important function of your home that keeps you warm during the colder season. If your water heater is leaking or producing noises, give the technicians at our plumbing company a call to perform a water heater repair or installation. We offer water heater and emergency plumbing services to households in areas such as Glen Burnie, Hockessin, Haverford, Newark, and Trenton.
How Gas Water Heaters Operate
But how do gas water heaters operate? In the simplest terms, a gas water heater starts when the thermostat triggers it to activate.
Gas water heaters are an important function of your home that keeps you warm during the colder season. But how does it operate? In the simplest terms, a gas water heater starts when the thermostat triggers it to activate.
From there, the furnace valve will open and provide natural gas to the burners. As a result, the blower starts, and the pilot light ignites the burner inside the combustion chamber. This produces heat in the furnace’s heater exchanger. Once the air is heated to the desired temperature, the air is pushed into the hot-air plenum, through ductwork and into rooms of your home. The gas water heater will continue running this way until it reaches the temperature that it’s set to. Then the thermostat will signal the gas water heater to turn off.

The Benefits of Investing in a Water Softener
Deciding if you need a water softener for your home? Water Softener can make a significant difference in your family’s water usage. A water softener contains a lot of benefits for you and your loved ones. Let’s take a look at a few advantages of investing in a water softener.
- Easier to Bathe & Shower
While showering and bathing, soft water can be beneficial to your skin and hair. Hard water contains mineral ions that hinder it from being completely soluble with soaps.
Since soft water lacks these minerals, you and your family will be able to enjoy a deeper lather. Soft water can also alleviate the impact hard water has on the body such as the taking away of natural oils in your skin and hair. In addition, soft water makes your skin retain moisture easier and reduces the risk of dry skin.
- Bright & Clean Clothes
Soft water not only helps with your family, but it also helps with the laundry. With a water softener, your clothes will be softer to touch, and even brighter. Since hard water contains minerals that leave deposits, your clothes color will start to fade, and even stain. On the other hand, soft water dissolves into clothes easier. This cleans your clothes more effectively.
- Spend Less Time Cleaning
Another difficulty of hard water is the inability to thoroughly clean dishes. It seems that no matter how many times you wash dishes, your dishware ends up with a cloudy residue as it dries. A water softener resolves this issue by removing minerals that build up on dishes, creating a cloudy appearance.
Drain Clearing Services
Clogged drains are incredibly frustrating. Not only do they prevent you from using your sinks, shower, tub, or toilet—repeated or frequent clogs can also be a sign of a much larger issue, such as a clog in the main sewer line. If you need emergency drain clearing or plumbing services, rely on the expert plumbers on our team! For nearly 30 years, we’ve been serving the local area with exceptional plumbing services, including comprehensive drain clearing.
Sump Pump Tune-Up, Installation, & Repair Services
Your home’s sump pump is an important piece of equipment. Any homeowner with a basement knows how valuable a sump pump is during the rainy season, as the sump pump is responsible for preventing basement flooding and water damage by removing excess water from the lowest areas of your property. In order to ensure that your home is protected from flooding, however, it’s important to make sure that your sump pump is working properly all year-round.
