You might not think twice about your supply of fresh, clean water when you turn on a faucet in your home. All the water that comes into your home travels through the same pipe: your water line.

How Did My Water Line Become Damaged?

When you need residential main water line replacement services, it’s normal to wonder what happened. There are many different ways that a water line can become damaged, from shifting ground to tree root intrusion. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of McAllen uses cutting-edge diagnostics to find the source of your water line damage. Often, we can help you discover how the damage occurred and give you tips for preventing it in the future. Some of the ways a water line can become compromised include:

  • Shifting soil over time
  • Tree roots growing into a crack or leak
  • Movement from nearby construction
  • Underground pests and rodents
  • Routine wear and tear
  • Water hammer

Identifying the Signs of Water Line Damage

Damage to your water line is often difficult for the average person to detect. The bulk of your water line is buried deep below ground. So, you cannot perform a visual inspection the way you might with other plumbing components. However, there are some hints your water line will give you if it has become damaged. Below, you will find a few of the common signs exhibited by faulty water lines.

Low Water Pressure

Some forms of water line problems will result in a reduction in water pressure. So, when you notice the stream of water coming from your faucet or showerhead is suddenly weak, your water line might be to blame. If there is a crack, leaky joint, or corroded section of your water line, residential water line installation services might be the best solution.

Discolored Water

Has the water coming from your faucets or showerhead changed color? If so, the problem might lie underground within your water line. When metal water lines become outdated, they will often begin to rust or erode. The pieces of corroded pipe can flake off into your water and create a visibly brownish-red tint. You should avoid using or drinking water that is discolored until your water line is replaced or plumbing repairs are performed.

Wet or Soggy Lawn

When a water line has a serious leak, it will cause your lawn to constantly be wet and soggy. While this might not occur with minor leaks, it is a common way that homeowners notice large leaks. Water is constantly flowing through your water line, and any cracks will result in a continual release of water into the soil of your lawn. This is a reliable sign that you need Mr. Rooter Plumbing of McAllen to perform water line installation services.

Increased Water Bills

If your water line releases water into your lawn all day and night, you might not notice it until you get your monthly water bill. This type of never-ending water waste is sure to drive your water costs through the roof. So, when you get an unusually high water bill, you should call a team of professionals to inspect your water line as soon as possible.
