Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most common causes of pipe corrosion?
Pipe corrosion can be caused by a number of things, almost all of which are related to water quality, including:
- Chemicals in the water
- The pH of the water
- The amount of oxygen in the water
- The temperature of the water
- The water pressure and the speed at which the water moves through the pipes
How can I check if I have a leak?
If you think you have a leak in your home, there’s an easy way you can check. Go out to your water meter and record the level. Make sure no one uses any water for a few hours, then go back and check the meter again (it’s easiest to do this when everyone goes to bed, then check it again first thing in the morning). If the level has changed, you probably have a leak – call Pacific Plumbing Inc. to have it taken care of right away!
Should I repair or replace leaky faucets?
If you can repair the faucet and restore the shine on its finish, faucet repair is a perfect option. However, if your faucet is too badly corroded or too old to find replacement parts, faucet replacement may be easier (and possibly cheaper!).
What are some of the biggest benefits tankless water heaters offer over conventional heaters?
One benefit of tankless water heaters is unlike conventional water heaters, they never run out of hot water. While storage tank water heaters have a limited capacity (usually between 40 – 60 gallons), tankless water heaters heat water as it passes through the system, meaning you’ll never run out of hot water.
Another benefit is that since there’s no stored water, there’s no risk of an untimely leak (flooding from water heaters is one of the most common homeowner insurance claims!). And, since you’re only heating the water you’re using, you’ll see major reductions on your energy bills.
Why does my hot water heater not work as well in the winter?
When it gets really cold out, the water that enters your home is much colder. This causes the hot water in your tank to lose a lot more heat when it mixes with the incoming cold water. In addition, you may have a buildup of sediment in your tank that’s inhibiting your water heater’s performance.
