What Are the Types of Water Line Damage?

If your water line becomes damaged, it will affect your supply of clean running water. Before we perform a water line repair, most homeowners want to know how their water line became damaged. Sometimes it’s easy to identify the source of damage, and sometimes it’s difficult to know for sure. We use industry-leading diagnostic techniques to help you fully understand the source of your water line damage. There are many common types of water line damage, such as:

  • Corrosion or rust
  • Repeated freezing and thawing (not very common here in California)
  • Cracks or leaky joints
  • Soil shifting over time
  • Movement of the ground from nearby construction

How to Tell When Your Water Line Is Damaged

As a budget-conscious homeowner, you don’t want to pay for any repairs that you don’t need. So, it can be tempting to put off repairs for as long as possible. With a damaged water line, this is an ill-advised approach. Leaving water main line repairs unaddressed can cost you in the form of increased water bills and lead to other home problems like flooding around your home’s foundation. For these reasons, it’s important to be aware of the signs that your home’s water line needs to be repaired. Below, you can find a few things that you might notice if your water line is leaking, broken, or damaged.

Increased Water Bills

The majority of your home’s water line is likely underground. That means that you often can’t see a leak. If your water line has a crack or a leaky joint, you are likely to notice it on your monthly water bill. When your water line is leaking, it will waste water continuously. So, if you notice your water bill has recently increased with no explanation, you should call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pomona Valley for residential water main repairs.

Low Water Pressure

Your plumbing system’s water pressure should be consistent. While your water pressure may slightly change when other appliances or faucets are in use, long-term changes in water pressure are a sign of a problem. Reduced water pressure is a common symptom of a damaged water line. When water leaks out of your water line, the water pressure is also released. If you notice any sudden changes in water pressure, call a team of home service professionals as soon as possible.

Soggy Sections of Your Lawn

Is your lawn wet and soggy even when it hasn’t rained? This is a notorious sign of a damaged water line. When your water line begins to release water into the ground around it, this can create standing pools of water around your lawn and garden. This doesn’t always point to a damaged water line, though. A damaged sewer line can also cause a lawn to be soggy, although it will often emit an unpleasant odor, and a leaking water line usually doesn’t. Either way, you need the help of a reliable team like Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pomona Valley.

Discolored Water

Changes in the color of your water can be alarming. Discolored water is a sure-fire sign that you have an issue with your water line. When a water line becomes rusty or corroded, debris will often flake off into the water, making it a visible brown, yellow, or red color. Drinking and using discolored water can be a health hazard. As soon as you notice a change in the hue of your water, call a team of professionals to assess the situation.
