Because of copper water lines, older homes in Vail are prone to have leaks. Here in southern Arizona the acidity level of the water corrodes the copper pipes from the inside out. Many people think that because they have a water softener they have avoided this catastrophe. Though this may slow the process, it will not fix the corrosion problem. It is merely a Band-Aid on the bigger issue at hand.

In certain neighborhoods CPVC was the builder water pipe of choice. CPVC becomes brittle overtime. Due to our dry southern Arizona climate. Because it’s rigid pipe it has fittings under the slab. Most of the slabs in this area are post tension. This means jack-hammering is not usually an option.
Solution: Whether you’re needing a simple repair of a leak or a full house repipe we at Swanson Plumbing Services can take care of your needs.
Are your shut off valves under your sinks and toilets hard to turn, squeaking or turning green?
This may be due to corrosion or cheap plastic drying out. A lot of builders use a one piece valve and supply called crinkle tube. This is made up of extremely thin flexible copper. overtime this can corrode and flood your home.
A simple replacement of your angle stops and supply lines can prevent serious water damage down the road.
Is your shower head dripping even though it is in the off position?
Your cartridge could be failing. The cartridge is the inner part of your valve. It determines when your water comes on and off. After time these cartridges can fail. Whether it be from heat or hard water corrosion. A simple change out can save you money on your water bill!

Why a water softener???
Do you have rings around your toilet?
White calcium staining on your faucets and fixtures that just won’t come off? Here in southern Arizona we have a VERY high mineral content in our water. This is the cause of that miserable white deposit. A water softener will help with these issues. All water softeners use the same operating principle: They trade the minerals for something else, in most cases sodium. The process is called ion exchange. The heart of a water softener is a mineral tank. It’s filled with small polystyrene beads, also known as resin. This in return means no staining spots for you!
We can properly install any brand of water softener you choose.

Is your disposal making a lot of racket or a abnormal grinding noise?
A standard disposals typical lifespan is five years. Without the upgraded drum the standard disposal is made out of steel and will rust. Whether you use it on a regular basis or not. If your disposal is five years old consider a replacement or take a peek under your sink to check for possible leaking that could damage your cabinet base. We recommend and carry a full line of InSink Erator Evolution disposals for replacement.
Having problems with your water heater?
The average life of a water heater is 10 to 12 years. On most brands the manufacturing date is the first four digits of the serial number. You can find this number on a sticker on the front of your heater. If your heater is over 10 years old your efficiency will declined significantly. Due to new government regulations all new water heater’s are extremely more efficient. If you’re heater is over 10 years old consider a replacement. We recommend Bradford White or Rheem as some of the best brands in our opinion, to replace your current agent water heater.
