Pipe Services in Reading

25 Plumbing_Banner

Pipes are the heart of any plumbing system. Without pipes, you would not have access to water to wash dishes, clean clothes and do normal daily activities. The pipes in your plumbing system also allow contaminated water from your baths, toilets, washing machine and drains to flow out to your city’s sewer system. Essig Plumbing and Heating has seen many different types of pipe problems over our 70 years of experience. Here are the most common pipe complications we come across:

  • Burst Pipes
  • Pipe Corrosion
  • Tree Root Infiltration
  • Pipe deterioration

These pipe issues are a result of many different things including cold weather, caustic chemicals, city water additives, poor installation and age.


How Does Essig Plumbing and Heating Asses Pipe Damage?

Essig Plumbing and Heating uses video detection technology to check your pipes and learn why they are malfunctioning. Since pipes are often obstructed by foundations and landscaping, there are some signs you should look for:

  • Large Puddles
  • Weak Ground on your property
  • Water spots
  • Gushing or free flowing water

As soon as any signs of a leak are noticed, you need to call Essig Plumbing and Heating as soon as possible. We will examine your pipes, use our leak detection equipment and provide you with a quote outlining detailed pricing and various repair and replacement options.


Pipe Repair and Replacement Options

In the event that your pipes have burst, the damaged pipe will need to be replaced. We may also offer insulation to prevent your pipes from bursting in the future. If your pipes are deteriorated from age or the use of caustic drain cleaning chemicals, pipe replacement is most often needed. Pipe leaks can often be repaired by localized removal and replacement of the damaged pipe.
