At Gladiator Repipe in San Jose, we know that you want to get the most out of your plumbing. When you turn on a faucet, you expect clean water to come out, and when you take a shower, you expect plenty of hot water and water pressure. However, if your home has old galvanized pipes, you may have issues with clean water, water temperature, and water pressure. What’s more, you may also be paying more on your utility bills per month because of your old pipes.
Copper repiping can be the best way to take care of these issues, and once your new plumbing is installed, you should see a decrease in your monthly water bill. Contact us today to learn more!
Leaky pipes present a host of problems, including water damage to your home and poor water pressure throughout the house. On top of that, you’re literally losing water that you’re paying for each and every month. Even if it’s just a slow drip at a connection point, there could be gallons of water wasted per month. This will likely be reflected in your monthly water bill, as your consumption goes up, even though you’re being mindful about how much water is used by both you and your family members.
Replacing leaky pipes with new copper plumbing can remedy the problem and give you peace of mind that water isn’t being wasted. You’ll also be able to avoid any water damage that could be happening behind the walls and under the floors.
Poor Water Pressure
As we noted above, old, leaky pipes can lead to poor water pressure throughout the house. When this happens, people tend to use more water to get dishes clean in the kitchen, or themselves clean in the shower. You want to make sure all the shampoo is washed off, so you stay in the shower longer, or you turn on the sink sprayer to wash off that last layer of dish soap. This also leads to more water consumption per month, which will push your utility bill higher and higher.
New copper pipes can help ensure that you have the right water pressure in every tap and faucet throughout the house. There will be no more staying in the shower for five more minutes or spending more time standing at the kitchen sink!
Inadequate Hot Water
As with water pressure, the temperature of your water is important when it comes to washing dishes and showering or bathing. If you don’t have enough hot water at first, then you’ll likely leave the water running longer until it gets warm enough. This can be wasteful, since you’re not actually using the water to wash dishes or yourself, and you’re literally letting your hard-earned money go down the drain.
Copper plumbing is designed to better retain water temperature, so you shouldn’t have to wait for the shower or bathtub to warm up, or for the water to be hot enough to wash dishes after dinner. You can be more efficient and responsible with your water consumption, which should lower your monthly bill.
