Pipe Repair

Pipe Repair

We are here for all of your pipe repair needs. Copper piping is by far the most widely used material in plumbing systems, however, despite what you might believe, copper piping doesn’t last forever. In the original design of copper piping, the pipes were expected to last up to 25 years but often fail in as little as two years due to changing the water chemistry.

Unrelated to water quality, changes in water chemistry have caused the water to  become aggressive toward the copper piping resulting in subsequent problems like internal pitting corrosion - leading to what’s known as “pinhole leaks." To repair copper pipe issues or issues with any other type of plumbing pipes, give us a call.

Pinhole leaks are a big issue for some of the reasons. First, they are rarely discovered until they have inflicted significant damage to your home. Pinhole leaks may occur in the ceilings and walls, surrounded by insulation and support beams.

Because they are so small, they don’t cause the telltale signs of lowered water pressure or water damage - giving them plenty of time to rot out the insulation and support beams one small drop at a time. Pair that with the fact that many homeowners believe their copper pipes are indestructible, and you end up with a mess on your hands.

Given that pinhole leaks are so small and nearly impossible to detect, the only fail-proof way to catch them before they cause extensive damage is to have the plumbing system in your home checked at least once a year by a professional plumber.

New homeowners should never ignore these electrical responsibilities.

Monday, August 9, 2021

Whether the issue is large or small, problems with electricity are often ignored until they become apparent.  It's easy to avoid thinking about problems that can occur in our appliances, circuit breakers, wall outlets, and even light bulbs. But often, ignoring issues while they are small leads to more significant problems and the necessity for the help of an electrician.

What others say about John's Electric Service

Aubrey was here less than half an hour after I called, had the problem identified within 5 minutes and had the problem solved within 15 minutes. He was friendly and professional.

Thanks for Saving Me!

John's Electric was wonderful! I called and he was at my house within an hour!! I was at great risk of fire because of my breaker overheating, and he got me taken care of quickly, and affordably! I have a home warranty, that wouldn't cover my issue, and he jumped in and took care of me. If I ever had need again, I know who to call. Couldn't recommend John's any higher!!!

Yellow Pages

Mr. Teele arrived quickly, diagnosed our outage problem and fixed it that same afternoon. We have an older electrical system that many other electricians simply won't work with. But Mr. Teele confidently made repairs and even called to check on us the next day to ensure all was working well.

What an amazing electrician Aubrey is!!!! He is honest and he charges reasonable! Never tried to upsell me once and I never felt taken advantage by him! Was the only electrician that came as soon as I called and was always upfront about everything! All the reviews about him are true! That's how I found him and he's proven to be everything everyone has said! Call the best so you can get great service!
