Your main water line is the primary pipe which brings water to your home and is connected to your city’s water source. Although main water lines do not frequently cause plumbing problems, it is important to know the warning signs of a main water line issue to prevent expensive repairs. Here are some things to look for if you think your main water line might need repair.
Puddles forming in your yard
If it has not been raining recently and there are puddles forming in your yard near your main water line, this is a sign you should call in our team of experts to take a look at your main water line for leaks!
Decreasing water pressure
If you have suddenly lost the strong, perfect water pressure in your home, this could mean that your main water line is experiencing blockages and needs to be cleaned out.
Rising water bills
If you notice your water bill is substantially higher than usual but your water usage habits have not changed, you may have a leaking main water line. Sometimes main water line problems are not noticed anywhere except for your budget!
Multiple plumbing issues
If small plumbing issues keep popping up around your home, it may be a good idea to take a look at the bigger picture and inspect your main water line.
Cracks forming in your foundation
If left unchecked, broken main water lines can cause cracks in your home’s foundation. If you notice a new or growing crack, give our team of expert plumbers a call.
