Sun City Center was developed in the early 1960’s as an age restricted retirement community. Most of the homes and commercial buildings were built in the 60’s, 70,s and early 80’s. The plumbing material used at the time of construction have reached or exceeded their recommended service life. Cast iron, clay, and orangeburg for sewer and drain lines and galvanized steel or copper for water supply lines can fail in many ways and cause persistent plumbing problems or even damage your home. Root intrusion, rust, and corrosion in sewer and drain lines can cause repeated clogs and back-ups. Galvanized steel and copper can develop pin-hole leaks in the walls and under the concrete slab, and the rust and corrosion in the pipes can cause rust colored water, foul smelling water, and can reach levels that make the water unfit for consumption.
As a family owned business we believe in taking care of those that have taken care of us. We look forward to assisting you with your plumbing needs and becoming your preferred Sun City plumbing company.
Sun City Center Plumbers – Water Filtration Systems
Many of our Sun City plumbing customers have voiced concerns about the quality of the water that comes from the faucets in their homes. Although municipal water supplies are EPA certified as drinkable, there are still trace amounts of minerals, chemicals and even bacteria that can affect the quality and health of home water supplies. Quality whole house water filtration systems can supply healthier drinking water through the removal of chlorine, chloramines and organic contaminants.
Properly filtered water promotes healthier skin and softer hair, requires less soap when bathing, cleaning dishes and laundry. It will also reduces “soap scum” on dishes, sinks and bathtubs. Chlorine and other chemicals no longer become embedded in clothing and bedding. tends the life of plumbing fixtures and pipes by inhibiting the formation of scale deposits causing premature pipe corrosion. Whole house water filtration also extends the service life of water heaters, dishwashers, ice makers and provides protection from municipal sanitation and water treatment failures.
Sun City Center Plumber – Home Water Re-pipes
The water service lines in most of the homes in Sun City Center were originally plumbed using either galvanized steel or copper pipes and were run in the concrete slabs of the home or business.
Galvanized Water Pipes
Galvanized water pipes have not been used for water supply since the 1960’s. If you own or are looking to purchase a home with galvanized water pipes, you may well have to replace them very soon. The estimated service life of galvanized pipe is generally 20-40 years depending on water quality. Galvanized pipe is susceptible to failure and clogging by either scale build up inside the pipe wall as well as rust from the inside out, or a combination of both. Surefire signs of problems with galvanized piping are higher than usual water bills, low water pressure, and rusty water when turning on a faucet.
Once the point of failure has been reached and you find yourself with a leak in one place, repairing the single failure will often result in a cascade of failures in other areas of the home. The best route at that point is to re-pipe the water lines for the whole house with Uponor PEX tubing. If you have concerns about the state of the galvanized pipe in your Sun City home please call EVERDAYPLUMBER.com today for a repipe estimate and information on the best steps to take to remedy your Sun City plumbing problems.
Copper Water Pipes
Copper water pipes began to be used for water supply more predominantly in the middle of the 1930’s and in some cases, up to the present day. Depending on water quality, water pressure, chemical reactions with acidic soil and concrete foundations, copper pipes have a service life of approximately 30-40 years. Copper pipes also corrode and fail over time but the corrosion is a slower process than galvanized pipe. Copper water lines also must be grounded to meet code standards. Unfortunately, electrical grounding can sometimes speed up the corrosion process. Signs of problems with copper pipes are higher than normal water bills, visible corrosion on exposed pipes, frequent pin-hole leaks, rust-colored water, and stained dishes or laundry.
As with galvanized supply lines, once the point of failure has been reached and you find yourself with a pin-hole leak in one place, repairing the single failure will often result in additional leaks in other areas of the home. A whole house re-pipe using Uponor PEX tubing is the only solution to insure there will be no future problems. PEX pipe has a service life of 40- 50 years and is easier to install and make repairs to.
If you have had multiple pipe repairs done on the copper pipes in your Sun City Center home, experienced higher than usual water bills, or any of the symptoms of failure listed above; please call EVERDAYPLUMBER.com today for a repipe estimate and information on the best steps to remedy your Sun City Center plumbing problems.
