Pipe and Valve Repair Services

Piping and valves comprise a home’s plumbing system, so if a pipe were to burst, or if a valve were to stop functioning properly, you’d be left with a huge problem. Valves stop the flow of water, and need to be regularly maintained to ensure they continue to work as you need them to.

At Jones Services, we have been providing pipe and valve repair and maintenance services to the tri-state area for 27 years. We have the expertise and the know-how to handle anything.

A pipe that bursts can obviously cause extensive damage, as an incredible amount of water can quickly pour out and come in contact with electrical and structural aspects of your home. If this happens to you, it’s imperative that you act quickly to reduce as much damage as possible.

If you experience a burst pipe, in addition to calling for assistance, there are some steps you should take:

  1. Find the source of the water supply to the leaking pipe and shut it off. If you can’t locate that particular supply, shut the main water valve off.
  2. Turn off your water heater.
  3. Turn on the hot water taps to help drain the system.
  4. If the pipe that’s leaking is near any electrical appliances, shut off your power to avoid electrocution.
  5. If the hole that the water is escaping from is visible, seal it with some gapless tape and apply pressure by attaching a piece of rubber.

 

Reducing the Risk of a Pipe Emergency

You don’t always want to be doing the clean up work after a pipe bursts, so there are some things you can do to keep damage to a minimum.

  1. Find the main shut-off valve and label it so you always know which one it is.
  2. Insulate your water supply pipes.
  3. Open your loft trap door to allow heat in when the weather is cold.
  4. If you plan on leaving home for more than a week, it’d be a good idea to shut your water off and drain all the water from your pipes to avoid a burst pipe while you are away.

 

Valve Repair Services

Do you know where to find your plumbing valves? They’re all throughout your water system – under your sinks, near your water heater, dishwasher and clothes washer, and behind your toilets. There’s also a valve on your main water line that shuts off your home’s water supply.

Because valves are like any other mechanical item, they can fail due to the corrosive nature of water. At Jones Services, we repair and replace all types of valves, and can even add them to your home if you need one.
