Your external water line is responsible for supplying water to your home. Everything from your sinks, showers, toilets, dishwasher and clothes washer rely on this pipe to keep water flowing. As a homeowner, typically any water line repairs from your house to the street are your responsibility. And even though you may not want to think about it, anything from a tree root to frozen or deteriorated pipes can slow or halt your flow of water.
If you’re experiencing any of the following, you may need a water line replacement or repair:
- Low water pressure. If your water pressure starts steadily decreasing, it could be a sign of a blockage in your main water line.
- Cloudy water. Cloudy water can be a sign of problems with your water heater tank but the culprit could also be your pipes or water supply. A professional plumber can diagnose the cause and make the needed water line repair.
- Increase in your water bill. If you haven’t increased your water usage, a significant increase in your water bill could indicate a leak in your main water line.
- Settling soil or foundation cracks. If your water main is leaking, the moisture buildup around your home could cause damage to your landscaping or foundation. Puddles in your yard or extra-green grass around your water main are other signs of leakage.
- Strange noises. If you hear gurgling or bubbling sounds in your drains – for example, the sound comes from your sink when you flush the toilet, or vice versa – that is a sign of a problem in more than just one pipe or drain.
