Common Types of Damage to Main Water Lines
The main water line provides water to all faucets and fixtures in the home. These water lines can be made from CPVC, PEX, or copper. The cost for main water line repair can depend on the reason behind the damage as well as pipe material. Cracked pipes are among the least expensive of repairs followed by broken pipes. Corroded pipe repair requires a bit more of a monetary investment because all corroded portions will need to be removed and replaced (which typically means replacing the whole pipe).
If you’re on a budget, you may be wondering if you can perform main water line repairs on your own. The short answer is, no. Most local governments only allow licensed plumbers to perform main water line repairs.
Signs and Causes of Damaged Main Water Lines
Busted main water lines often reveal themselves through the low water pressure they cause. Sometimes, the low-pressured water appears rust colored and foul smelling. Outdoors, noticing cracks in your home’s foundation or puddles in your yard lets you know that something’s not right with the line underneath. And if you hear running water when no one’s using the plumbing, it’s not a ghost taking a shower — it’s probably a failing main water line.
Things like freezing temperatures, tree roots, and corrosion can cause your main water line to burst. A leaking line can waste a lot of money and clean water, and if you suspect a leak, you should call a plumber. In western North Carolina, My Plumbers LLC offers main water line repairs.
