5 Signs You Need Water Line Repair
If you have a plumbing issue that’s affecting your whole house, it may not be a single pipe that’s the culprit -- it may be a main water or sewer line, which is a serious issue that you must fix ASAP. Here are the top five signs that you may have an issue with one of your main water lines.
- Puddles in the Yard: If you see water puddles in the yard when there’s no precipitation, it could be that the water line has sprung a leak.
Dramatic Loss of Water Pressure - If you typically have good water pressure, but it suddenly drops, it could be a blockage in the mainline that’s to blame.
- Spike in Water Bills: Sometimes, the only way to detect if you have a water leak is by seeing sky-high water bills. If you’re suddenly paying a lot more for water, get a main water line inspection.
- Foundation Cracks: Persistent moisture around your home’s foundation eventually leads to cracks, and if not dealt with immediately, can cause severe damage.
- Gurgling Sounds: If you hear strange gurgling sounds coming from your toilets or when you turn on your sink, you have a plumbing problem that probably isn’t relegated to a single pipe.
If you suspect that you have issues with the main water or sewer line, call the experts at Apex Plumbing Pros for an inspection.
How Does Trenchless Pipe Replacement Work?
It used to be that to fix or replace the main water or sewer line, the contractor had to dig a trench to expose the pipe, which often meant cutting through your well-manicured lawn or landscaping. This repair is often messy, unattractive, and expensive. However, today methods like trenchless pipe repair or pipe bursting are available, which greatly reduce the need for extensive excavation. Here’s how it works.
Your plumbing contractor will break up a tiny section of your basement floor where the sewer line leaves the home. They then dig another hole at the end of the yard where the sewer line begins. With access to both ends of the line, they feed a cable through the old sewer line, which contains the new pipe.
A machine pulls the cable and the new line through the old pipe. Once this is in place, the plumber breaks or bursts the old line to make room for the newly installed pipe.
If this sounds like the perfect solution for your main sewer line repair, call us for a consultation.
