Ways to Know You Need Water Line Repair or Replacement
If you live in a home that is older than 1970, then you may have a water line made from outdated material such as galvanized steel or even cast iron. (The last is a possibility for homes constructed before the Second World War.) Although these are tough materials, they will eventually suffer from corrosion and decay away. It’s wise to plan for a full replacement of this water line with copper piping. Copper is corrosion–resistant, lightweight, and has extra flexibility to help prevent damage due to ground shifts.
If you aren’t looking for water line replacement because of the age of the pipes, you should keep a watch for signs that the water line has leaking, root infiltration, or other damage. Here are some indications that will tell you to call professional plumbers for water line work:
- A drop in water pressure throughout the house – If the water line starts to leak or becomes blocked, it will cause water pressure within the house to decline. If you see that water pressure has significantly weakened, and the issue isn’t coming from a problem with the municipal supply (check with a neighbor to see if they’re experiencing similar trouble) then you should immediately contact a plumber to inspect the water line.
- Discoloration in the water – You’re probably familiar with the rusty–brown discoloration that comes from taps after you have returned from a long vacation. If you see this during a normal day, it can mean that the water line is suffering from heavy corrosion, or that dirt has started to enter through breaks.
- High water bills – Loss of water through the breaks in the line will cause a significant spike in your monthly water bills. Never ignore a major change in your water costs for which you cannot account.
- Damps spots on the lawn – When you notice wet and soggy places on your property that aren’t from rain or sprinklers, it might the fault of water seeping from a damaged water line below.
