PROBLEM: COPPER PIPES WITH PINHOLE LEAKS
The water in Dallas is known to have a corrosive effect on copper water pipes. This means that over time, your copper pipes are slowly corroding. As this damage occurs, lead and copper oxide from the soldered joints are released into your family’s tap water. It is possible for our ultrasonic leak detection equipment to detect pinholes the result from the corrosion of the pipes, but eventually the entire piping system will need to be replaced. The interior of the pipe will keep thinning out and develop new leaks. The service of replacing the piping system is called a re-pipe. Call on Metro-Flow Plumbing Dallas technicians today to learn more about our re-piping methods and cost. We have the most talented plumbers in Dallas!
PROBLEM: POLYBUTYLENE PIPE ISSUES
Polybutylene is a soft, gray plastic pipe. It was popular in the plumbing industry between the 1970's and the1990's. After it’s installation in many homes, it was discovered the it was an unreliable product due to it’s rapid rate of deterioration. If you bought a house, conodo, or mobile home in any U.S. state after September 12, 1999, it may have polybutylen parts installed as part of it’s plumbing structure. There is a pipe replacement program that won’t cost the homeowner anything to replace these pipes. If your Dallas home’s plumbing is composed of polybutylene pipes that were installed between January 1, 1978 and July 31, 1995, you may qualify for the free re-pipe program. Call Metro-Flow Plumbing if you are concerned about your home’s pipes and a local Dallas plumber will be happy to check out your home for polybutylene pipes and determine your eligibility.
PROBLEM: HIGH WATER BILL

There are no outside faucets running, such as a lawn irrigation system or a faucet hidden behind foliage.
No toilets are running continuously.
