Taking Care of Your Plumbing Pipes Since 1938

Pipes are the heart of any plumbing system. Without pipes, you would not have access to water to wash dishes, clean clothes and do normal daily activities. The pipes in your plumbing system also allow contaminated water from your baths, toilets, washing machine, and drains to flow out to your city’s sewer system. Essig Plumbing & Heating has seen many different types of pipe problems over our 80 years of experience.

Here are the most common pipe complications we come across:

  • Burst pipes
  • Tree root infiltration
  • Pipe corrosion
  • Pipe deterioration

These pipe issues are a result of many different things including cold weather, caustic chemicals, city water additives, poor installation, and age.

How Does Essig Plumbing & Heating Asses Pipe Damage?

Our team of pipe experts in Reading uses video detection technology to check your pipes and learn why they are malfunctioning. Since pipes are often obstructed by foundations and landscaping, there are some signs you should look for:

  • Large puddles
  • Water spots
  • Weak ground on your property
  • Gushing or free-flowing water

As soon as any signs of a leak are noticed, you need to call Essig Plumbing & Heating as soon as possible. We will examine your pipes, use our leak detection equipment, and provide you with a quote outlining detailed pricing and various repair and replacement options.

Reading Pipe Repair & Replacement Options

In the event that your pipes have burst, the damaged pipe will need to be replaced. We may also offer insulation to prevent your pipes from bursting in the future. If your pipes are deteriorated from age or the use of caustic drain cleaning chemicals, pipe replacement is most often needed. Pipe leaks can often be repaired by localized removal and replacement of the damaged pipe.
