Signs Your Water Line is Damaged

Cause of Water Line Damage
Your water line works consistently to pump in new water daily. It ages naturally and faces normal wear and tear. Over the years, it will break down or spring leaks. Some of the most common causes of water line damage include the following:
- Aging Pipes – If your water lines are older, they may not be able to stand up to corrosion and pressure.
- Improper Installation – When water lines are incorrectly installed or not designed for your property, they will not typically last long.
- Ground Movement – Freezing and thawing of the ground put pressure on pipes, leading to damage and breaks.
- Rodent Damage – Pests and rodents can gnaw on your pipes, causing damage.
- Tree Root Intrusion – Tree roots search for a drink of water in your pipes and can cause them to clog and break.
Water Line Repairs vs. Water Line Replacements
Our service professionals do their best to perform water line repairs before choosing a water line replacement. We understand most homeowners don’t know if a partial repair or complete water line installation is best for their home. We will inspect your issues and determine an effective plumbing solution. A water line replacement often boosts the water pressure in your home, gives you peace of mind that your water line is healthy, and sometimes improves the taste of your water. The most important things we consider when determining if you need a water line repair or replacement include the following:
- The current age of your water line
- The existing material of your water main
- The consistent repairs of your water line
- The cost-effectiveness of water line services
