Trust Your Pipes to the Professionals
When it comes to your plumbing pipes, it’s a good thing they don’t make them like they used to. The plumbing in many homes built before 1970 used galvanized iron pipes, which were coated with zinc. As the zinc coating slowly wears off, these iron pipes became rusted and corroded, which causes the water pressure to drop, water to develop a brown tint, and cause damage to your water-using appliances. These are the main reasons pipes have to be replaced.
Replacing old Plumbing Pipes.
If you find yourself in this situation, serious pipe repair or pipes replacement is needed, we will do it with either copper or PVC. You’ll need an experienced plumbing specialist to remove the bad pipes, dispose of them properly and install the copper or PVC. Pipe replacement is not a DIU job, call us to get it done right the first time. But the good news is you’ll enjoy stronger showers, cleaner drinking water and more efficient appliances.

How to Prevent Frozen Plumbing Pipes and Costly Pipe Repair.
When water freezes it has the power to easily crack or burst your home’s plumbing pipes—creating a plumbing emergency you don’t want.
Prevent pipes from freezing with the following tips:
Drain pool and sprinkler lines and use an indoor shutoff to keep water out of outdoor hose bibs.
Insulate any pipes (even hot water lines) in unheated areas, such as basements, attics or garages. Pipes that run along exterior walls without adequate insulation frequently freeze.
During extremely cold periods, letting water trickle from your faucets can prevent frozen pipes.
Save your home from serious damage, contact Champion Plumbing® professionals immediately if you suspect the water in your pipes has frozen, and for other pipe repairs.
