Is Your Water Line Damaged?

When your water line becomes damaged, it may start leaking, which presents problems like increased water bills and foundation issues.

How to Tell If Your Water Line Is Damaged

An old or worn-out water line can leak and cause serious damage to your home. So, it’s essential to identify water line issues early. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater Baltimore offers precise diagnostics that will help you determine when you need main water line replacement services. Some signs of a damaged water line are easy to miss, though. You should reach out to a plumbing company if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Soggy sections of your lawn
  • Sinkholes or potholes near your property
  • Water bills that are higher than you expected
  • Rusty or discolored water
  • Unusual odors
  • A reduction in water pressure
  • Cracks in your home’s foundation
  • A gurgling sound coming from your pipes

How Do Water Lines Become Damaged?

When something as serious as water line damage occurs, it’s natural to wonder how it happened. Many things can compromise your water line, from age to ground movement. No matter the source of your water line issue, we can help you repair or replace it. Some of the most common sources of water line damage include the following:

Aging Pipes

As your pipes get older, they will eventually succumb to corrosion, leaks, and rust. These issues will limit the functionality of your water line, requiring you to replace it eventually.

Improper Installation

When a water line is not installed correctly, it will wear out much sooner than it otherwise would.

Ground Movement

Since much of your water line is underground, shifting soil from earthquakes or nearby construction can damage it.


Repeated freezing and thawing of the soil around a pipe can put a serious strain on it and lead to cracks or other sources of damage.

Rodent Damage

Sometimes, pests and rodents will chew or disrupt pipes, causing problems.

Tree Root Intrusion

Tree roots are attracted to moist areas of soil. So, if you have a minor crack in your water line, tree roots may grow into it, clogging it and causing the leak to become worse.
