In every home or business, water is provided by a single line that hooks you up to your municipal water service. All water lines that are properly installed were expected to give you uninterrupted service for several decades before the required replacement. Despite their expected reliability, due to poor installation, time or damage, there will come a time when you will need to have your main water line repaired to ensure service to your home or business.

Signs You Need Main Water Line Repair
Water main pipe bursts or leaks can cause a lot of damage in very little time as well as leaving your family or customers without water service. Paying attention to the signs that you have water line damage can save you money in unnecessary repairs by catching the problem early.
Some of the major indicators that a water line is damaged are:
- High water bills
- Sounds of running water
- Flooded lawns
- Soft spots in the lawn
- Low water pressure inside the home
- Insect problems
When to Schedule a Main Water Line Replacement
Any interruption in water service to your home is inconvenient. It is much better to try and anticipate a problem like this and prevent it from occurring. But, how do you know when to schedule a new water line installation?
There are three good ways to tell that water line replacement may be a good idea:
- Age: No materials are expected to last forever and the longer they are in service, the less reliable they will be. Metal lines were phased out so they are all in need of replacement. A PVC line that is over 30 years old is probably in need of replacement as well.
- Materials: Metals like copper and steel are probably already in need of replacement and PVC can become brittle as it ages. Newer plastics will last longer and don’t have the same problems that previously used materials have.
- Numerous Repairs: Regardless of the age or material of a water line, if it has needed numerous repairs, it is time for a replacement. This could be due to a number of causes like poor installation, unstable soils, or mechanical damage.
