SERVICES WE OFFER
Shower Valve Repair and Replacement
The valves in your shower are responsible for regulating both the water temperature and pressure. Have you ever been in the shower when someone flushes a toilet in another part of the house? If your water turns cold or hot, it means you have a problem with at least one of your shower valves. This is a rather common occurrence.
When functioning correctly, your water temperature should remain constant throughout the duration of your shower – regardless if someone uses a toilet, sink, or other water-consuming appliance elsewhere in the home. When this problem arises, a shower valve repair or replacement is necessary.
Faulty valves can also cause leaking at the connection behind the wall. These leaks cannot be seen and are the leading cause of rotten and moldy walls. In order to prevent very costly repairs down the line and to keep your shower’s water temperature constant (as it should be), contact Alpine, your trusted local plumber.
Water Pressure Regulator
Your water pressure regulator is a vital component of your plumbing system and is responsible for exactly what the name implies. It regulates the water pressure in your home, ensuring that it’s neither too low or too high. It brings the pressure down to a safe level before it even enters your home plumbing, but keeps it high enough to ensure a strong flow of water at your faucets and fittings.
Too much pressure can cause minor problems such as leaking, or more serious problems including burst pipes. If you believe something might be wrong with your water pressure, contact the plumbing experts for a no-hassle consultation and a free estimate.
Sometimes leaks are easy to see and hear. Typically these leaks originate from a faucet, a shower valve, or below a sink. Other times, leaks happen in places that aren’t visible and you might notice them until it’s too late. These leaks can occur behind walls or under floors and cause extensive damages that require lengthy and costly repairs.
If you suspect you have a hidden leak or notice a sudden spike in your water bill, you could benefit from having professional leak detection services performed in your home. Our plumbers use non-invasive leak detection methods that can quickly identify leaks without disturbing your walls.
As you’re probably aware, your water heater is the unit responsible for heating all the water in your home. If you enjoy taking hot showers, cleaning your dishes and washing your clothes, then having hot water is an absolute necessity. If your water heater is too old it’s probably unable to work as efficiently as it did before. It could also have damaging mineral build-ups or cracks from aging.
If you notice your water isn’t getting as hot as it used to, or if your water smells and tastes metallic, there’s a good chance that your water heater is beginning to fail and in need of a replacement. Since tampering with your water heater can be dangerous and lead to even larger problems, it’s best to consult with a qualified plumber.
Water softeners filter out excess heavy minerals to get rid of your home’s hard water. There are various types of water softeners available, and they work exceptionally well at providing clean, soft water for your home. However, over time certain parts of the softener – such as the resin beads – can no longer hold anymore minerals and will require a proper cleaning.
Generally speaking, your water softener should be replaced every 10 to 15 years. Since the removal and installation process are difficult tasks, it’s best to not try and perform this job by yourself. If you believe your water softener is failing and want the advice of a professional, contact us to schedule an appointment. One of our plumbers will come out and take a look as soon as possible.
Faucets, Fixtures, and Sinks
Your faucets, fixtures, and sinks will all need replacing or repair at some point or another. Leaks that occur in these places require immediate replacement. If not, water can begin leaking into your cabinets, vanity, or the surrounding floors and walls. Not only is this damaging but it also creates a risk for mold which can have severe health implications.
If you are experiencing any issues with your faucets, fixtures, or sinks, the best thing to do is to call your plumber to check the situation and make any required repairs as soon as possible.
Garbage Disposal Installation
Your garbage disposal is a very handy and often necessary appliance. Garbage disposals help prevent large food particles from going down the drain and causing clogs, blockages, and foul smells within your kitchen sink’s drain pipe. Don’t let a bad garbage disposal cause cause your sink to constantly overflow, allow food to clog your piping, or leave your kitchen smelling rancid. Contact the professionals at Alpine Plumbing today for a free inspection and fast, friendly, affordable service.
Bad water lines can cause discolorations in your water, a reduction in water pressure, and a whole host of other plumbing issues. Faulty or broken water mains require immediate diagnosis and replacement. If you believe your water main isn’t functioning properly, contact your plumber as soon as possible.
A dysfunctional water main can lead to burst pipes and excessive flooding that could quickly destroy your property and belongings, often requiring expensive repairs, insurance involvement, and other major headaches. If you know you need water main work but have been avoiding it due to the invasive nature of the job, ask us about trenchless water main replacement. This method is far less intrusive when it comes to repairing and replacing your faulty water mains.
Water Filtration Systems
Water filtration systems are an excellent feature for every household. If you enjoy the taste and benefits of pure water but hate constantly spending on bottled water, you’ll be impressed at the cost savings of installing a water filtration system. This will effectively and efficiently remove unhealthy substances such as magnesium and barium from your water, along with other heavy metals. It provides improved safety and taste, plus the confidence that your won’t be spending needlessly on bottled water, which also contributes to environmental pollution.
Don’t forget that water filtration is about much more than what you’re drinking. Contaminants in water can also affect your skin when bathing (your body absorbs water), and cause staining, discoloring and premature wear of your favorite clothes. It can also wreak havoc on your piping and shorten the lifespan of your faucets and fixtures.
If you’re tired of using unfiltered and potentially dangerous water, it’s time to do something about it. Get in touch with us today and ask about having one of our professional plumbers install a water filtration system in your home.
