We suggest routine maintenance to help your pipes last longer, but it is also important you call us right away if you suspect you’ve got a piping issue.

Signs that you may need a repipe repair in Phoenix include:
Clogs are probably the third biggest threat to your pipes, behind pressure changes and freezing. While you may be tempted to use liquid drain cleaners to get rid of pipe clogs, the chemicals in these products are very toxic and can eat away at your pipes. They also tend to be ineffective, often sitting on top of clogs rather than eating through them. If you cannot resolve a clog with a plunger or a plumbing snake, contact our experienced plumbers to clear your lines safely. Remember, you can avoid many clogs by not flushing items like paper towels, cotton balls, tampons, pads, and even so-called “flushable” wipes down your toilet (basically, go with toilet paper or nothing.) You should also be careful to only put light food scraps in your garbage disposal.
From tree roots to animals to grease, there’s nothing that gets in your pipes that our experts at Rainforest Plumbing & Repair can’t get out. We will do everything in our power to repair your pipes, however, there comes a point where you may also need extensive piping replacement. If your home does require repiping, we promise to do everything we can to make the service process as easy as possible on you, working as quickly as we can and even offering affordable financing options.
What Kinds of Dangers Are My Pipes Subject To & How Can I Protect Them?
A large percentage of broken pipes can be attributed to pressure and freezing. At times of high pressure, you may experience noisy pipes or jolting and moving pipes. Plumbers often refer to a pipe’s noisy jolt as a “water hammer”. Meanwhile, in the winter, it is possible for your underground pipes to freeze—even in a warmer climate like Phoenix, AZ. During a freeze-thaw cycle, copper pipes contract in the bitter-cold night, and expand again with the morning sun and warmth. This causes strain on your piping system, occasionally resulting in broken and cracked pipes.
Avoiding water hammer and freeze-thaw cycles are important to save your water pipe from disaster. Foam insulation is available for all outdoor piping to protect them from the contracting and expanding that occurs in the cold winter months. Rainforest Plumbing technicians can perform a check on your water pipes, and we have a variety of preventative maintenance packages to choose from, so the health of your pipes is inspected annually.
Signs You Need Pipe Replacement
How long your pipes will last depends on what they’re made of. While everyone knows that lead pipes are not safe, they’re still utilized across the United States.
How long your pipes last depends on use, environment and what they’re made of. Galvanized steel can go for 50 years, brass for 45 years, copper can last over 50 years and cast iron pipes can last an entire century. If your pipes are older than their respective life expectancy consult our Phoenix pipe replacement professionals when they break down next.
There are a lot of ways your pipes can impact your water’s taste, smell, look or feel. If you suspect anything is off then it’s always good to at least get your pipes examined by a licensed professional who might suggest pipe replacement.
While our Phoenix pipe repair specialists will always be happy to come in and fix your pipes, you shouldn’t be needing pipe repair every year. It might be time for pipe replacement so give us a call.
