Water Line Repair and Replacement

Among the many problems you can face as a homeowner, a water line break is one of the most devastating. Not only can a broken water line cause flooding into your home, it can also cause severe damage to your home’s foundation and ruin your personal belongings.

Unless your home relies on a water well or storage tank, it’s one of the many that is supplied by municipal water. This means that your water travels from a municipal source to your home via a water line on your property. Many water lines run right to a home’s water heater to make it easy for you to access hot water, but if the unthinkable happens and your water line breaks, it can mean big problems.

There are many different factors that could cause a water line break, including:

  • Old/worn pipes
  • Rust or corrosion
  • Ground shifts
  • Increased pressure
  • Improperly lined pipes
There are ways to tell if your water line has a leak:
Each line comes with a main shut-off valve and a water meter; if you suspect you have a water line leak, check your water meter to see if the leak indicator is moving. You can also take a meter reading, wait 1-2 hours, then take another meter reading. If your reading is different, it could indicate a leak.
You can also take note of your outside surroundings. If the ground and/or pavement is damp or unstable, or if you’ve noticed pools of water around your lawn, this also could indicate a leak. In addition, if you’ve noticed your water bill has been higher than normal lately, you may have an issue.
