Facts You Should Know About Water Service Lines

Homes built before 1980 usually have pipes that are made of galvanized steel or cast iron, which are prone to corrosion.

The very basic type of homeowner’s insurance does not cover the cost of a broken water service line. It is also not the responsibility of the city. Make sure you check if your insurance company covers this.

Water line breakage is mostly caused by tree root penetration, settling of the earth, corrosion, clogging, and structural deterioration due to age.

Water Line Repair

Water​ ​Line​ ​Repair

The​ ​importance​ ​of​ ​your​ ​water​ pipe ​leak repair line​ ​should​ ​not​ ​be​ ​underestimated.​ ​If​ ​your​ ​water​ ​line​ ​is​ ​damaged, your​ ​entire​ ​plumbing​ ​system​ ​will​ ​suffer.​ ​If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​looking for pipe leak repair to​ ​fix​ ​your​ ​water​ ​line​ ​issue,​ ​only​ ​a​ ​skilled plumber​ ​will​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​help​ ​you​ ​detect​ ​the​ ​root​ ​cause​ ​of​ ​the​ ​problem​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​resolve​ ​it efficiently.​ ​In​ ​our​ ​experience,​ ​these​ ​are​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​common​ ​causes​ ​of​ ​water​ ​line​ ​problems:

Old​ ​pipes – Whether​ ​you​ ​have​ ​just​ ​moved​ ​into​ ​an​ ​older​ ​home​ ​or​ ​you​ ​have​ ​spent​ ​some​ ​time​ ​at​ ​your​ ​existing one,​ ​you​ ​might​ ​want​ ​to​ ​inspect​ ​the​ ​quality​ ​of​ ​your​ ​home’s​ ​water​ ​line.​ ​At​ ​Drain​ ​Go,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​request an​ ​assessment​ ​of​ ​your​ ​water​ ​line​ ​which​ ​will​ ​allow​ ​you​ ​to​ ​find​ ​out​ ​how​ ​old​ ​your​ ​water​ ​line​ ​is,​ ​what condition​ ​it​ ​is​ ​in​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​what​ ​you​ ​can​ ​do​ ​about potential replacement and pipe leak repair.

​Tree​ ​roots – If​ ​your​ ​water​ ​line​ ​passes​ ​close​ ​to​ ​areas​ ​where​ ​there​ ​is​ ​tree​ ​root​ ​growth,​ ​there​ ​is​ ​a​ ​danger​ ​that these​ ​tree​ ​roots​ ​might​ ​cause​ ​damage​ ​to​ ​your​ ​pipes.​ ​No​ ​matter​ ​the​ ​quality​ ​of​ ​your​ ​water​ ​line​ ​piping, tree​ ​roots​ ​are​ ​so​ ​strong​ ​that​ ​they​ ​have​ ​the​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​crack​ ​your​ ​pipe​ ​and​ ​even​ ​sometimes penetrate​ ​it​ ​completely.​ ​This​ ​leads​ ​to​ ​significant​ ​obstructions​ ​in​ ​your​ ​water​ ​flow​ ​and​ ​will​ ​definitely result​ ​in​ ​decreased​ ​water​ ​pressure.

Water leaks should be identified and repaired immediately as they can quickly turn into floods and cause water damage. Water damage can then lead to mold growth, structural damage, and costly repairs.

Water pipe leak repair naturally wears out over time. These signs can indicate that it is time to repipe your home’s water supply:

  • Age
    It is a fact that the water supply system ages alongside your home and establishment. Pipes have an estimated lifespan, during which they will need to be replaced for optimum efficiency. We can give you a complete water evaluation and recommendation for your next plan of action.
  • Pipe Materials
    Pipes that contain either lead or polybutylene should be replaced immediately. Polybutylene is a substandard element, while lead is considered a hazardous material.
  • Frequent Leaks
    An enormous amount of water pressure can weaken pipes over time. If you have been constantly experiencing leaks, it may be time to repipe your water line.
  • Corrosion
    Corrosion caused by hard water and excessive water pressure will eventually lead to leaks. Have a licensed specialist check your water line for corrosion.

On the other hand, here are effective ways to prevent water damage in your home. You must:

  • Clean out your gutters regularly. Debris can build up without you noticing it and can cause unseen damage.
  • Monitor your water bill so you would know if there are leaks. An abnormally high water bill one month as compared to a previous one is a surefire sign.
  • Inspect your roof and look for dark spots under your pipes. Nipping a main water line leak repair in the bud can save you money and headaches.
  • Make sure you have a decent drainage system in place.
