PROFESSIONAL WATER LINE REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT
Waterline leaks cause more than frustration, they can cause damage to the home and result in harmful mold growth. Water leaks should be addressed quickly, and by licensed and insured specialists.

Some common signs that you may have a water leak, or it is time to upgrade your home’s water supply include:
The harsh Georgia winters can lead to frozen or burst pipes. The extreme weather causes pipes to expand and contract, weakening the material.
Pipe materials can wear over time. If the home is older and water lines have not been replaced, schedule a plumbing inspection to determine the type of water lines and assess for any potential problems, such as high water pressure.
Frequent water leaks in fixtures, or in the main water supply line indicate a larger issue going on. If you find yourself scheduling constant water leak repairs, it is time to upgrade the home’s water pipes.
Signs of Corrosion
Corrosion on fixtures or at water supply connections is a signal that you may have excessive water pressure causing minor leaks. Hard water is also damaging to water pipes causing them to wear before the end of their lifespan.
Whether you are experiencing active leaks or are unsure of your water pipe condition, Plumb Smart, Inc. has the right solution for your home and budget with our professional water line repair and replacement in Paulding & Cobb Counties, Georgia, and the surrounding areas.
Water Line Repair
If a water line has a small leak in an accessible location, the repair is often the most cost-effective option. However, water lines should only be repaired by licensed and skilled professional plumbers. Some pipe materials require special tools such as soldering. Soldering uses an open flame, and usually in enclosed spaces, so safety is crucial.
Locating and repairing water lines also may require some opening of walls or ceilings. A licensed repair specialist will set up safe containment and ensure that there are no potential health hazards involved.
If the water line is leaking in a slab foundation, sometimes direct repair is possible. Direct slab leak repair is quick and cover by many homeowners insurance. However, it is not the most permanent solution. If a slab leak has occurred, direct repair only repairs the leaking section. It is highly likely another leak will occur in another portion of the line.
Water Line Replacement
When the repair of a water line is not possible, or the water system is aging and frequently causing leaks, replacement is the ideal solution.
The team at Plumb Smart, Inc. offers water line reroutes to eliminate water pipes underneath the slab foundation to avoid future slab leaks.
Our experts can also replace the water pipes inside of the entire home with high-quality material. We can perform copper line replacement and PEX, Polyethylene, which is a flexible, durable, high-density plastic. We are certified to install PEX piping, and it is ideal as it will not corrode the pit and reduces the water hammer. We feel PEX is ideal, as it can handle extreme hot and cold allowing the material to expand without bursting.
We will assess the needs of your home and provide multiple solutions to fit your budget. Upgrading the water system in your home can save future water damage and enhance the value of the home.
