PEX Piping: A Sound Home Improvement for West University Homeowners

Repiping your water supply system with PEX piping increases plumbing system quality of a West University home while eliminating the chance of future plumbing failures and associated damage.
West U. homeowners like to stay ahead, which may include investing in your home with kitchen and bath restorations. But don’t forget the pipes behind your wall.

If your home was built before the 80s, it will likely have galvanized pipes that are rusting. And if your home was built or remodeled in the 90s or early 2000s, it may have PVC potable water pipes that are prone to busting under pressure. As your pipes rust pinholes form, causing water leaks that can damage the interior of your home. Check for reddish or brown rust spots on the potable water pipes in your attic.

Because galvanized pipes rust from the inside out, you may not see rust on the outside of the pipe, but still notice brown tinted water when you turn on a faucet that hasn’t been used for a few days. Stay ahead of your home’s needs by upgrading to more durable pipes as soon as possible. With a horizontal repipe or whole-house repipe, John Moore utilizes an advanced piping solution, called PEX piping. PEX, or cross-linked polyethylene, is an anti-corrosive material so it won’t rust like galvanized pipes do. And because PEX pipes are designed with less connections to withstand water pressure, they have virtually zero chances of busting like PVC pipes.

Ready to upgrade to PEX pipes with a whole-home repipe? Call 713-597-2687 to schedule a consultation.

Main Line Sewer Repair and Replacement for West U

A frequent, and oftentimes a smelly problem, thanks to tree roots and cast iron piping commonly found among older West University homes.
Do you notice sewage water backing up from your drains? Do your downstairs toilets make strange noises every time you take a shower? If the answer is yes, your sewer line may be blocked.

Main line blockages are fairly common in older parts of Houston where cast iron and concrete sewer lines are starting to fail. Over time, the concrete slab of your home can shift, which can either snap the cast iron drain pipe under your home or cause your main line to form what’s called a “belly” or an upward slope. If your main line snaps, tree roots and mud eventually find their way into your line and cause blockages. And if there’s a belly, your waste can get stuck to the top of the pipe, cause a build up, and become blocked that way.

If you have sewer water coming back up through the drains of your home, what you’re noticing is wastewater that has no place to go. Because the last thing you want is wastewater all over your floors, call a licensed plumber as soon as you notice sewage backup. John Moore’s customer service desk is open 24-7 to ensure you can schedule an appointment right away. Our expert plumbers will clear out the blockage, locate the break in your main line, and provide solutions, which may include a re-route, a section repair, or a complete main line replacement.

Water Quality Solutions for the Residents Living in West University Place Community

Even the best homes in Houston aren’t safe from the city’s hard water. You probably already know this to be true if you don’t have a water softener in your home.

Houston’s hard water can build up and damage your fixtures, appliances, and sometimes your skin and hair. Over time, you can actually see the buildup of hard gunk on your sinks and tubs. But what you can’t see are the thousands of contaminants in your water. Although Houston’s tap water has been deemed safe to drink, many of these invisible by-products are testing at the very top of the allowable limits.

Why risk damage to your home and your health when you can take control of the quality of your water? John Moore offers water softening solutions to ensure your tap water leaves your faucets, appliances, skin, and hair in good condition. And when it comes to your health, a whole-house water filtration system will treat every drop of water you use for drinking, cooking and bathing.

Want peace of mind about the water you’re drinking and using in your home? Schedule an appointment with a John Moore plumber in West U today.
