How to Tell If You Need Water Line Repairs
The number one cause of broken residential water lines is natural wear and tear. Most water line repairs happen after about 60 years but this can fluctuate depending on plumbing accuracy. Electrolysis is less common cause of line breaks and copper pipes are more likely to be affected due to the metal’s electrical conductivity. If a plumber has previously used tools that contain metals different to your pipes, a chemical reaction can occur. This can also happen if you and your neighbor’s pipes are too close together. A break in your lines can result in running water and when unnecessary water is lost, the first place you may notice it is on your water bill. Wet areas around your home along with an unexplainably high bill are a big indication of leaks. Furthermore, a drop in water pressure throughout the entire home can also indicate a break in the lines.
Signs that You Require a Water Line Replacement
Sometimes the problem is bigger and requires more than water line repairs. You may require a water line replacement if you notice a rust-brown tint in your water. This discoloration occurs because of the kind of pipes you have and the dirt, soil, and corrosion that may be entering the cracks. Also, soggy spots on the lawn, when it hasn’t rained in some time, this is an indicator that your line is cracked and leaking water below your lawn’s surface. Finally, a drop in water pressure could indicate that you are losing water through a cracked line.
