Reasons To Upgrade Your Plumbing According To A Plumber | Katy, TX

How efficient is your plumbing system? As a homeowner, one of your goals is to save money and you can achieve this by ensuring all of your appliances and plumbing fixtures are efficient. If you notice any of the signs below, we suggest you consider calling a plumber in Katy, TX to help you upgrade your plumbing system.

Signs it’s time to upgrade:

Old Piping

Have you just moved into an old home? If you did, chances are our home may still have galvanized pipes installed and this isn’t really ideal because they’re more susceptible to rust and damage. We advise you to contact a plumber and ask about an upgrade, perhaps to brass or copper pipes. Both are less susceptible to damage and also last longer. If you see the water has discolored, this is likely due to old piping materials. Speak with a professional today to help you make an informed decision on which type of pipes to install for your home.

Should you decide to upgrade, do make sure to only hire a licensed professional; never attempt to install the pipes on your own to avoid even more costly repairs. Most importantly, don’t hire a handyperson offering his services at a lower price because he’s not insured (and he can’t get insurance because he doesn’t have the license) and if he gets injured, you may be held liable for it. You may also pay for medical expenses. With a plumber, you have an assurance he can get the job done the first time. He’s also fully equipped so no need to purchase your own equipment. Do you need the services of a professional today? Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Frequent Repairs

When was the last time you called a plumber to repair a pipe or another plumbing fixture? If it wasn’t long ago and you’re calling another professional now for another repair, we suggest upgrading your plumbing. You can save more money by upgrading to a better system and you also will have peace of mind knowing your appliances or fixtures will not suddenly malfunction. If you’re looking to renovate or upgrade your home’s plumbing, please don’t hesitate to talk to us about it. Our plumbing experts are more than happy to sit with you and discuss your needs. We can walk you through our process to let you know how we do our work. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you need to clarify some things. Our goal is to ensure your plumbing stays efficient and you’re happy with our services, and we can achieve this by ensuring we can get the job done right the first time. In fact, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee for up to two years, for your peace of mind. If you need a plumber for your home in Katy, TX, call bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of West Houston today.

Low Water Pressure

How’s the water pressure in your home? If you don’t have a water pressure gauge yet, now’s the time to get to know your home’s water pressure. It should be within 40-60 PSI; otherwise, we suggest you hire a plumber to correct your problem and upgrade your plumbing.

Low water pressure may indicate a leak in your plumbing so consider calling a plumber for professional leak detection. High water pressure is also not a good idea because it can severely strain the pipes and can also lead to a catastrophic leak. Speak with a professional today for an inspection; our plumbing experts at bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of West Houston are more than happy to help.


If you keep getting leaks in your plumbing, we highly recommend you speak with a professional today. Our plumbing team can recommend a better plumbing upgrade to ensure your plumbing stays efficient. Depending on the problem, we might ask you to replace your pipes or upgrade to a tankless water heater to prevent flooding in the basement. We might also ask you to install leak detection devices so that you’re alerted just in case there’s a leak in your plumbing.

Some Upgrades We Can Recommend

What is your first priority? If you want to conserve energy or water to save money, we suggest you consider upgrading to a tankless water heater, energy-efficient appliances and water-saving fixtures. A tankless water heater can last up to 20 years and you get to save money because it only consumes energy when you actually turn on the shower or the tap. You can also conserve water and save money with dual flush toilets and low-flow showers. Energy-efficient dishwashers and washing machines also use less water compared to their counterparts. However, just make sure you use the proper soap for it or you may end up running another cycle. You can’t use regular soap or dishwashing liquid because you’re using less water.

If you have a basement, call a plumber to install a sump pump. This device can prevent flooding in the basement, safeguard appliances stored there, and protect your home from water damage. Make sure to get a professional installation to avoid more problems down the road.
