FAQ: Memphis Water Line Replacement and Installation
What Are the Signs Water Line Replacement Needed?
Dark tap water, low water pressure from the pipes—all these might seem like trivial issues, but they can be signs of an aging and vulnerable household water line. With time passing by, that same pipe could face disastrous consequences such as freezing or thawing due to extreme temperatures or ground movement; it may even succumb to mineral deposits or tree root intrusion. To prevent a plumbing emergency down the line (no pun intended!), stay vigilant for potential warning signals!
Some of the signs to be aware of are:
- Discolored water
- Water with an odd texture or taste
- Flecks of rust or sediment in the water
- Low water pressure
- Interior water damage, such as rotting floorboards
- Soggy patches on your lawn
- Unusually high water bills
- Leak detection
- Outdated materials
How Can You Tell If You Have a Water Line Leak?
It can be difficult to tell if you're dealing with a water leak because your water line is hidden from view, and much of it is underground pipes. If you have a leak on your line after your water meter, all the water that is leaking is also being recorded on your meter, and of course, you have to pay for it on your utility bill.
The easiest way to determine if this is happening is to carry out a little test. Go around your house and make sure all faucets are turned off, toilets are not running, and no water is being used, then go take a look at your water meter. If the dial indicator on an analog meter is moving or a digital meter is flashing a number other than zero, you do have a leak that will need to be addressed with water line replacement or repair.
Next, you can go a step further and figure out the approximate location of the leak. Turn the water shutoff valve for your entire house to the off position to stop any water supply into the house, and check your meter again. If it is no longer indicating a leak, that means the leak is inside the house after the water shutoff valve. If it is still signaling that there is a leak, the problem is in the line somewhere between the water meter and the shutoff valve. The final step is to call our expert plumbers for inspection, diagnosis, and replacement of your water line.
Is Water Line Replacement Necessary for Frozen Pipes?
If you find that your water pipes have frozen solid during a winter cold snap, you may be worried that you need water line replacement. Whether or not that's actually the case depends on how severe the damage is. If your pipes are frozen but have not burst, we can likely get them thawed out and back in good condition without the need for replacement. But if the ice expansion has created enough pressure inside the line to burst it open and cause a leak, water line replacement is the best option to get the water flowing again and return your household to normalcy.
How Long Will Pipes Last Before You Need Water Line Replacement?
While the length of time you can expect your water pipes to last does vary slightly based on the type of material they're made from, you can pretty much expect them to last a lifetime as long as they get the proper care and maintenance over the years. Brass pipes and galvanized steel pipes are rated to last between 80 and 100 years, while copper pipes will last about 70 to 80 years. Of course, there's always the possibility of damage from external forces such as tree roots, heavy construction, and seismic activity that could cause you to need water line replacement services much sooner.
