Investments You Can Make for Your Plumbing

Investments You Can Make for Your Plumbing

At B.L. James & Son, we have seen our fair share of plumbing disasters. There are a lot of things that can spell trouble when it comes to your plumbing. You cannot control or predict everything that could potentially go wrong, but you can make investments and additions that can improve and protect your plumbing in the short and long term. Here are a few you may be interested in implementing.

Install Leak Detectors

Leaks happen. And when they do, things can quickly escalate from a simple mess to needing expensive structural repairs. The main thing that separates those two scenarios is how quickly you notice the leak. Therefore, installing a leak detector can prove to be invaluable. Today’s leak detectors can sound alarms and send notifications to your phone when there is water present. This way you can rush to turn off your water lines before it is too late and then figure out what the issue is from there.

Install a Water Softener

Hard water contains minerals like calcium and magnesium. You may be familiar with how stubborn hard water stains can be to clean, but hard water can wreak havoc inside your pipes over time as well. Hard water can create layers upon layers of mineral buildup that will eventually constrict your waterflow, not to mention it can shorten the lifespan of your appliances. You can improve your water quality by installing a water softener.

Install a Water Purifier

Looks can be deceiving. That is why even though the water that comes out of your faucet may appear clear and clean, there can still be many microorganisms and contaminants that are present. Oftentimes, water filtration systems are not enough to rid water of all the contaminants floating around. That is why your water supply can benefit from installing a reverse osmosis system. These systems are extremely efficient in removing viruses, nitrates, arsenic, and radium.

We love our plumbing. Running water makes our lives so much simpler and much more convenient. If you are thinking of adding any of these items to your plumbing systems but are not quite sure how, give us a call at B.L. James & Son! We can install, repair, and maintain anything revolving around your plumbing and more.
