Are you struggling with a problematic plumbing system? The culprit could be your main water line. At 1-800-Plumber of CT, we strive to provide the best quality water line replacement & plumbing services for our residential and commercial clients in Trumbull, New Canaan, Stratford, Greenwich, Norwalk, Connecticut and surrounding communities. Main water line issues are common. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy for home and business owners to know when it’s time for a replacement. Here are some warning signs to watch out for.
Strange Water Coming from Faucets
The water coming from your sink faucets and showerheads should be clear. If you notice that the fresh water is becoming discolored, then there’s an underlying plumbing problem that needs to be addressed. If the brown tinged water only pours when the hot water is used, then there could be rust or buildup in the water heater tank. However, if you’re seeing floating sediment and/or weird hues when filling up a glass with cold water then you may have a corroding main water line.
Pools of Water in Yard
Do you see standing water on your lawn even when it hasn’t rained in days? Then you may have a big leak coming from either your sewer line or main water line. Be sure to get help from a professional as soon as possible.
Loss of Water Pressure
A significant drop in water pressure could indicate that a major leak or fracture has occurred in the main line. If you start to notice that the water coming from your fixtures are barely dripping, then call a local plumber right away for an inspection.
Have you recently discovered a massive pest control issue? In some cases, main line problems will attract insects and rodents who are looking for a place to quench their thirst. Pests that make their way into your pipes can make small leaks larger, which can eventually lead to a total collapse. Many people don’t think about how pest issues affect their pipes, but it’s important to have a thorough inspection following your pest control service to ensure your plumbing system remains efficient.
Expensive Water Bills
Hidden leaks are often noticed by homeowners when they see a sudden rise in monthly utility costs. If your water bill has become unusually expensive, and the rates haven’t changed, a leak is probably occurring somewhere in your system.
Root Growth Problems
Have you had sewer line clogs caused by root growth? If so, then the main water line could also be infiltrated by nearby trees and shrubs who are looking for an easy meal. If your overgrown root problem is severe, be sure to have the main line inspected as well.
