Valve Replacement and Repair
Many homeowners are blissfully unaware that a single valve is responsible for the ongoing flow of clean water into their home or building, and that valves control the flow of water into separate areas of plumbing within a home. These valves, also called a plumbing shut-off valves, are an integral part of your home plumbing system. Their failure could impact your home and its livability.
Often, people don’t realize that a water valve needs to the repaired or replaced until something goes wrong with their plumbing or they are trying to install a new fixture, such as a faucet, sink, or toilet. The valve controls the flow of water into a space, and it must be able to be turned on and off for you or a plumber to service a room. If it isn’t working properly, that means that the plumber can’t either. When you notice a water valve isn’t working, it’s time to repair or replace it, before bigger problems arise.
How Do You Know If You Need Valve Replacement or Repair?
One of the most typical reasons that people need to have a water supply shut-off valve replaced or repaired is because of corrosion. The most durable water supply valves are metal, but over time, their metal can be degraded by the constant contact with water. Older water supply valves can lock up, making it impossible to turn them on or off. They can also start leaking, which is a sure sign of internal wear and tear or degradation.
If you discover that a water valve in your home isn’t turning on or off or has started leaking, you want to have it repaired or replaced right away. Depending on the age of the valve, it likely makes the most sense to have it replaced. While repairs can often be the more affordable option when it comes to critical home systems like plumbing, water valves that have stopped functioning properly once are very likely to do so again. Hiring a professional to replace the water valve the first time it malfunctions is probably going to be more cost-effective, in the long term, than some half-measure intended to repair it temporarily.
