Signs You Need Water Line Repair or Replacement
The water that enters your home is critical when it comes to your daily life. Without water flowing into your home, you won’t be able to drink from the tap, clean your dishes or laundry, or do much else. The main water line brings in fresh water. It’s durable and typically well-built. However, there are many factors that can cause a line to break, such as
- Tree Roots
- Age of the home
Here are three signs that you might need a water line replacement or repair.
If you notice a rust-brown tint in your water, this could be a sign that there is an issue with your water line. The discoloration may happen because of the type of pipes you have, corrosion, or even dirt and soil entering your pipes through cracks.
If it hasn’t rained a lot and you find damp and soggy spots on your lawn, this could mean that the line is cracked and leaking water under the surface. If this is happening, it is recommended to call a plumber immediately to remedy the situation.
Low Water Pressure
A drop in the water pressure of your home could mean that your water line is leaking and losing water.
Increased Water Bill
If you notice unusual spikes in your water bill, it could mean that you need a water line repair or replacement, or that you have a hidden leak in your home. For both situations, you need to hire an experienced plumber to determine what the cause is and fix it.
