Homes and businesses both need water to function properly, whether it’s just for employee bathrooms or all of the daily water needs for a family living in a house. Cities have large water pipes, usually under streets, that buildings are connected to for a water supply. The pipes that connect you to these water lines are called your water main line. This is the inflow of water to your home or business, and so maintaining these lines is important. They can create leaks that lead to massive water bills if they become clogged or damaged over time. These lines are very durable, but anything can break, and time degrades everything. If you’re concerned about the integrity of the main line in your home or business in Stryker, Bryan, and Napoleon, OH, call the plumbing experts of Woolace & Johnson at 419-546-8424.
Signs of Main Line Damage
There are plenty of signs that you need main line plumbing repair. The most common, and earliest indicator, is a higher than average water bill. If there is a leak somewhere in your plumbing, but you have trouble finding it and diagnosing the problem yourself, it’s possible that the leak is somewhere you can’t check, underground. Low water pressure usually also points to a leak somewhere in your plumbing, possibly at your water main. If you notice areas in your hard are wet when others aren’t, or there are unexplained pools of water, this is a potential water main leak.
Water main lines are usually very durable. They’re built to last between 40 and 100 years. But these lines aren’t immune to outside interference or the ravages of time. Harsh soil conditions are known to cause the outside of water mains to corrode. Soil can shift during heavy rain or bad storms, and the added pressure can cause pipes to break over time. Human error can also be a factor. If there is construction at or near where your plumbing connects to the water lines in the street, it is possible for the crew to accidentally dig into your pipes. It is also possible that your water main is at the end of its intended life cycle, and needs to be replaced.
