Water pipes are made from a variety of materials including PvC (polyvinyal chloride), iron, polyethylene or copper. They deliver potable water from the street or well to all areas of your home for use in the kitchen, bath, laundry, and outside irrigation. These pipes often times are buried in the slabs of homes, in the walls and consist of joints, valves and fittings that can lead to leaks. Water lines are pressurized and more susceptible to leaks. In some cases, it is difficult to detect leaks without a closer inspection. Leaks can lead to low water pressure, water damage, increased bills and a waste of natural resources. And, in the colder areas of the country frozen pipes can be a major concern.
