  • Signs Your Home Needs to Be Repiped

    No matter how well you care for it, old plumbing clogs more easily than new plumbing. If you find yourself spending all your time and money cleaning your drains and repairing leaks, then research the age and quality of the pipes in your home and call for a sewer inspection. Don’t wait until your drains smell and your house is overrun with water before calling a professional plumbing service. Here are a few signs you might need to repipe your home: 

    • A loss of water pressure: As much as 80% of the water pressure in a home may disappear as the plumbing deteriorates. This can mean low-pressure showers or the washing machine taking a long time to fill with water. If this becomes noticeable, then call a plumber for a sewer inspection before your pipes begin to smell or leak. 
    • Leaks: If the water stops working completely, then your pipes are most likely leaking somewhere. In the short term, it is cheaper to pay a plumber to locate and repair the leak. In the long term, however, owners of homes with worn-out piping can expect to find themselves in the same situation again and again until they replace the old pipes. Consult with your plumbing professional for more information on the condition of your pipes and repiping your home

    If you’re experiencing a loss of water pressure or leaks throughout your home, then call Albert Nahman Plumbing & Heating at (510) 843-6904 or visit our website. The information you get from the inspection will be invaluable as you make the decision to repipe now or in the future. If you are considering repiping your home, then contact us today for an estimate.

  • Water Heater Tips

    Water heaters fail every day for a number of reasons, including metal pipe corrosion, improperly mixed connectors, or accumulated sediment inside, causing reduced power. This video offers tips for maintaining your water heater. For example, a good water heater should have one easy-to-access control valve on the cold water side only. You also want to make sure you have dielectric unions separating copper pipes from iron fixtures. The mixture of the two metals could cause corrosion in your system. For more information on installing a new water heater, check out this video.
