Emergency Plumbing Services
One of the most frustrating parts of home ownership is when one of your home's critical systems breaks down. Problems ranging from toilets or sinks backing up to larger-scale leaks in your plumbing mean that you need assistance as quickly as possible – and, unfortunately, these issues often crop up outside of regular business hours.
This is why our Boston plumber's emergency services ensure you get the help you need when you need it. Delaying repairs on plumbing problems can not only be inconvenient and unpleasant, but it can also result in the problems beginning to spread and cause even further damage. Rather than risk additional expense and more extensive damage, reach out to our team today.
Proudly Serving the Boston Area's Historic Properties
If you live in one of Boston’s beautiful brownstones or a property built before the 1990s, your plumbing is considered historic. The character and charm that accompany your historic home age well; however, its plumbing doesn’t quite follow suit. Behind your gorgeous crown molding and decorative walls, a plumbing disaster may be brewing.
Luckily, our plumbers in Boston can help with all types of common historic plumbing problems, including:
- Pipe Bellies—Pipes installed underneath your home are subject to natural shifts in the ground. If a pipe is forced downward, “bellying out,” your water flow will be restricted, and sediment will begin accumulating, causing recurring clogs. Preventative drain cleaning will need to be performed until you are ready to replace your piping.
- Outdated Fixtures—Vintage fixtures, from showerheads to faucets, are costing you more money in utilities than an upgrade would. Older fixtures are going to leak due to natural wear and tear. And, over time, they can develop a stench as well. You can still purchase a character and antique design fixture, so change out your fixtures to start saving on water costs.
Outdated Materials—Building codes constantly change. If your home has not been renovated in
the last couple of decades, your pipes probably need replacing. Here are
the piping materials that pose a threat to you and your home:
- Lead Pipes: Lead is toxic. If your home is on the older side, and you do not know what type of piping it has, get your plumbing system checked. Lead was a popular plumbing material until the mid-1960s when the Safe Drinking Water Act was passed, banning the installation of lead pipes. If your home still has lead piping and you do not want to replace them, you should install a water filtration system to prevent lead contamination of your water supply.
- Polybutylene Pipes: Common in homes built between the 1970s and 1990s, polybutylene pipes were a cost-effective plumbing material. However, this material has proved problematic, as numerous malfunctions have been reported. As it turns out, the minerals and oxidants naturally found in water supplies cause a chemical reaction with the plastic polybutylene pipes, causing cracking and flakes of plastic to peel off into the water supply. These issues ultimately lead to extensive property damage and compromised potable water. If you have polybutylene pipes, schedule an appointment to install new piping before your pipes break down.
- Galvanized Pipes: Galvanized pipes were most commonly used for residential water lines. The issue here is with the coating on galvanized pipes: zinc. Over time, zinc erodes, causing galvanized pipes to malfunctioning. Rust formed from aging zinc accumulates within galvanized plumbing, causing clogs. These clogs then restrict water flow and increase the pressure within your plumbing system, which may cause your pipes can rupture. Galvanized pipes can also negatively affect your drinking water. If you begin to see an orange hue in your water, your water has rust in it, and it should not be consumed.
