It’s important to make sure that you catch any issues with your water line straightaway. That said, the fact that your water line is underground makes this a bit difficult for those without the training, diagnostic equipment and experience of investigating water line issues. However, there are some signs that homeowners should look out for. Once you suspect a problem, it’s best to have our plumbers have a look.
The key to cutting costs around the home is finding problems early on. Water line problems often make themselves known by a drop in your water pressure. Because your entire water supply system remains highly pressurized in order to reach every fixture and appliance, a drop in the pressure could indicate an underground leak. If you notice that your water bill has skyrocketed, that can also be a sign that you need to repair your water lines.
When to Consider Water Line Replacement
The line between water line repair and replacement is not exactly clear–cut, at least not always. There are numerous factors to consider when deciding whether to repair your water line or whether to start over with a brand new one, including the age of the pipe, its condition, how much damage it has incurred, as well as where the damage is coming from, be it from soil erosion or tree root penetration. We can help you navigate the various aspects of this decision making process and make it easy on you. We will give you our professional recommendation—what we think would work the best for your home, taking into consideration your best interests as well as your budget.
