Plumbing System Repair

Your plumbing system is one of the essential systems in your home. It distributes hot and cold water, enabling us to keep things clean (including ourselves), to cook, among other important daily tasks. Waste lines allow us to flush sanitary waste and dirty water from our homes. Plumbing systems may also be integral to keeping you warm if your heating system is hydronic (water based).

So when something goes wrong with your plumbing system, it’s usually a big deal. Going without water or without hot water even for a few hours is frustrating. In fact, if the problem is bad enough your home may become temporarily unlivable. Plumbing problems often lead to property damage, such as when the leak is serious or sewage is backing up your drains, or when a tub drain leak ruins the ceiling below it.

Problems can also lead to wasted water and higher utility bills. A leaking water line, for example, can lose thousands of gallons of water before it is discovered. In the case of gas lines, leaks can lead to fire and explosion. Even a small leak from a gas water heater can cause asphyxia. Symptoms include irregular breathing, dizziness, headache, nausea, and vomiting.

Halco can repair your home's plumbing system to fix any plumbing problems, big or small, and prevent future problems to ensure that you always have running water and other important plumbing features.
