Water Line

When you turn on your faucet, you get fresh, clean water at your fingertips. It’s delivered directly to you via a single supply water line from the street, under your property, and into your home.

A water-supply line normally works perfectly for years. But if you notice a sudden drop in water pressure, a discoloration of the water or a recurring wet area in your yard you may have trouble with your water line. In these cases, contact KPS plumbing expert as soon as possible to conduct an inspection and resolve the problem quickly before it gets worse.

How to Find a Leak in Your Water Line

An electronic device is often used to determine the exact location of the water line

There are a variety of reasons why your water line may need servicing. In some instances, tree roots can get into the pipe. Other causes of water-line failure include mineral build up and residue, high water pressure, ground movement, acidic soil conditions, freezing and thawing, plus general deterioration.

Repairing the Leak

There are many options for repair or replacement of damaged or leaking pipe.

Once installed, the repaired or replaced water line is tested for leaks. Depending on the severity of the repair or replacement a municipal inspection may performed for final job approval.

Contact a KPS plumbing specialist by calling 310-781-2008 to make sure your water supply line is working properly.


Sewer Line

A clogged sewer line creates big problems with your plumbing, requiring sewer line repair. If you’ve noticed that your drainage system has started to slow down and perhaps heard a gurgling sound coming from your toilet bowl, now may be the time to act.

Sewer Problems

Tree roots are one of the prime suspects when it comes to sewer-line damage. Thousands of feet of tree or plant roots are constantly seeking moisture and often times, finding it in your sewer line. Older, clay tile pipes are most susceptible to invasion, but these roots can penetrate even concrete and PVC/ ABS pipes.

In addition to root damage, a broken or clogged sewer line can happen in a number of ways.  very common occurrence may be objects that find their way into the line and become lodged. Also, extreme temperature changes and general deterioration can cause sewer problems, such as lines buckling or breaking. Ground shifting or improper installation can also lead to misalignment.

Video Sewer Inspection

This process is the best way to avoid the expense of “exploratory” plumbing or digging up of your yard by using a miniature camera to find out exactly what and where the problem is. Video inspection can also confirm the structural condition of your lateral pipes. It can tell you if an auger or high-pressure flush can solve the problem, or if more extensive repairs are necessary.

Trench-less Pipe Repair

In the past, sewer problems usually meant excavation on a large scale, with serious yard repairs needed once a sewer-line repair was completed. Trench-less pipe repair is a faster and a less invasive option that only requires a few access points.

There are two approaches to trench-less sewer repair. Pipe bursting is when the existing line is blown apart as a new pipe is pulled through it. While with pipe relining, a fiberglass line is placed inside the faulty pipe to seal any damage.

Your KPS plumbing sewer-line professional can recommend the best method for you.
