Do I Have a Damaged Water Line?

The most common sign that you need water line services is standing water around your property. It’s essential to take fast action if you have a water line problem. The following signs are common indications you may need a water line replacement: 

  • Sewage smell around your property
  • Water backflow into your drains
  • New pest infestation
  • Poor drainage
  • Discolored or rusty water
  • Sudden drop in water pressure
  • Tree root intrusion in the pipes

Causes of Water Line Damage

We work quickly to find the cause of your water line damage and ensure repairs before creating further damage. Our team often uses innovative video camera inspection equipment to find the location of the water line problem and recommend a plumbing solution. Some of the most common causes of water line damage include the following: 

Clogged Lines

Mineral deposits and foreign objects can stop your water from flowing freely through the pipes.

Tree Root Intrusion

Tree roots sometimes grow into your pipes in search of hydration, creating significant clogs.

Ground Movement

As the ground freezes and thaws, your pipes sometimes fail under the amount of extreme pressure.

Aging Pipes

Older pipes are at risk of corrosion and damage.

Extreme Water Pressure

The water pressure pushing through your pipes can lead to the breakdown and further corrosion of your pipes.

Water Line Repairs vs. Water Line Replacement

While a water line replacement is typically more expensive than a water line repair, it may be the best option for your plumbing health. Some of the most significant factors we consider when choosing between a water line repair or replacement include the following:

  • We determine if your current water pipe material can withstand a repair or needs to be replaced. Lead and galvanized water lines need to be upgraded.
  • If your water lines are over 50 years old, we typically recommend a new water line. We give you peace of mind with a healthy water line replacement.
  • If your water line repairs cost more than half the price of a new water line, it’s time to upgrade. Broken-down water lines will only continue to need more repairs.

Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Main Water Line Replacement?

Most people’s homeowners insurance policies do not cover a new water line replacement. Insurance companies often deem water line problems as predictable because they are the result of natural wear and tear. We offer plumbing maintenance services to inspect the health of your plumbing regularly. We can stay ahead of potential plumbing disasters with our professional plumbing maintenance services.
