When the water system was constructed in 1966, it ensured that the growing young Town of Fairview would have plenty of water from Lake Lavon. Now, at around 10,000 residents, the need for clean water and working plumbing is more important than it ever was.
We enjoy working in the beautiful Town of Fairview and serving the residents there. Everyday, we strive for excellence in our work. We believe the pride we have in our level of plumbing service is of the same caliber as the pride Fairview residents take in their homes and their community. On this page, you will find some more information that will hopefully be helpful to you regarding your home and plumbing.

Plumbing Problems in Fairview
Here are a few interesting statistics on homes and home ownership:
- Almost 80% of Fairview residents own their home instead of renting.
- Fairview is a very popular choice for retirees with many residents being older than 65.
- Around 70% of the homes in Fairview were built in the last 20 years.
Because of the age they were built, the majority of homes in Fairview have a slab foundation and a PVC drain system under the house. This is good news! Unlike the older cast iron systems, PVC doesn’t deteriorate with exposure to the ground and moisture. This means if you have a break in your sewer system, it can probably be taken care of with a single spot repair instead of replacing whole sections of the system. It takes skill and the right equipment to pinpoint where breaks are in order to make the repair as noninvasive as possible.
The majority of homes also have copper water lines which run under the slab and distribute fresh water to all of your plumbing fixtures. Although, if your house was built within the last 10 years, there is a much higher likelihood of a PEX system where the lines are run through the attic and walls.
Your water heater is also probably located in the attic or in the garage. If it is in an area where it could cause damage when it starts to leak, it is highly recommended to replace the tank proactively at around 10 years old.
Fairview and Heritage Ranch
One of the biggest housing communities in Fairview is Heritage Ranch. It is actually the first active-adult community in North Texas for residents 55 and older.
It was started by the US Homes Corporation which soon afterwards was acquired by Lennar, who continued the development. The first homes were built around 2000 around the golf and country club that was developed there.
