Plumbing Problems and Outdoor Maintenance
As all the water used within homes and other structures is delivered through municipal water supplies and returned to it after usage for treatment or disposal purposes, there are various factors that can obstruct the flow of water. When any area within the city is faced with such problems, skilled plumbers are called to detect and fix the issues. Outdoor plumbing facilities can face the following problems:
During winters, pipes freeze and crack due to extremely cold temperatures. Once the season ends, the cracks become prone to leakages. To bear the winter cold, special stainless steel pipes must be installed. Many landlords even get such pipes installed as part of tenant improvement, repair, and maintenance procedures. The good news is that these precautionary measures are a one-time investment with no hassles being faced later on.
Most drain pipes pass through gardens and underground sanitary sewers. As a result, roots and fungi can easily enter into the pipes and when oil, grease and other lubricants are drained into the pipes, this makes the roots and fungi stick to the pipe walls, resulting in clogging. Proper routine cleaning of the drainage systems is recommended to avoid this scenario.
Rusted Galvanized Pipes
Although this problem has been overcome with modern pipe manufacturing processes, rusted pipes can still be found in areas where moisture levels are high or where chemical waste is passing through the water mains. The resolution to this problem occurred when PVC and copper piping were developed to replace iron pipes because galvanized iron corrodes once the layer of zinc layer wears off. As a result, corroded galvanized pipes can cause serious issues like mineral-dense water, lead poisoning and severe leaks.
If the pipes within a municipality have corroded, they should be repaired immediately. In most cases, however, the citizens or the authorities are unaware of the fact that old and conventional pipes are still being used within the area. Thus, no detection occurs until there is a serious leak. It is recommended to call a plumber even if minor leaks are found so that the problem can be tackled before it becomes worse.
Aside from these, various other maintenance measures are also taken to ensure proper working of outdoor plumbing systems. Mesa Plumbing Company offers all the services that cater to your outdoor plumbing needs, using the best quality of equipment.
