Affordable waterline repairs and replacements

Inland Trenchless offers Yakima affordable waterline repairs and replacements

You know it when it happens, your sink takes forever to fill or why you can’t seem to wash a glass in less than a minute or two.  Ugh!  First you think it is an easy faucet repair.  Nothing a little handy fix won’t solve, right?  Possibly.  While it is true that a simple cartridge replacement can sometimes solve a slow water drip, the fact of the matter is, corroded waterpipes is not one of them. How long does it take to fill your bathtub?  Come to think about it, it is taking longer than it used to, you say to yourself.  These issues are fairly common with aging waterlines, so you’re not alone. 

Mainly due to age, almost all copper and galvanized water pipe will eventually fail. 

What’s worse is sometimes your home is damaged as a result.  There seems to be two main culprits for failing waterlines in your home. 

Corroding water lines

One scenario is the waterpipe slowly corrodes itself shut on the inside of the pipe.  You can’t see this as it happens silently.  (Normally, this corrosion is collected on the horizontal portions of your waterlines, and sometimes replacement of these horizontal sections can help alleviate these problems). 

Waterline pinholes developing from particles in the water

The other common waterline failure happens when the pipe is corroding from the inside out and pinholes start to develop along the length of the line. 

Water is the vehicle to carry particles that can and do corrode your water pipes from the inside out. 

It is this corrosion from the inside of the pipe that causes the walls of water pipe to ‘thin’ thus resulting in pinhole leaks.  Normally, you’ll notice one leaking and get that patched.  However, this truly is an instance where more pinholes are just about guaranteed to show up more and more.  The only real solution is the replace the waterline in its entirety. This is due to the fact you cannot see where other pinholes are leaking.  Are they leaking underground, or under a basement slab?

These issues also may be responsible for increased water usage, with the resulting increase in water usage costs.
