Typical problems with water main lines:

Pipe Leaks and Bursts

  • Causes: Age, corrosion (especially in metal pipes), freezing temperatures that cause water to expand and crack the pipe, and high water pressure.

  • Symptoms: Wet spots in your yard, unexpectedly high water bills, reduced water pressure, or the sound of running water when no taps are in use.

Corrosion

  • Causes: Over time, metal pipes can corrode due to the pH levels of the soil and water, the presence of minerals in the water, or electrical currents from underground sources.

  • Symptoms: Discolored water, frequent leaks, or reduced water flow.

Tree Root Intrusion

  • Causes: Tree roots naturally seek out water sources and can grow into pipes through small openings, eventually expanding and breaking the pipe.

  • Symptoms: Slow drains, frequent clogs, or backups in your home plumbing system.

Clogs and Blockages

  • Causes: Accumulation of sediment, minerals, or debris can block water flow in the main line.

  • Symptoms: Reduced water pressure throughout the house or discolored water.

Improper Installation

  • Causes: Incorrect installation can lead to many issues, including leaks, reduced water pressure, and premature pipe failure.

  • Symptoms: Persistent problems despite regular maintenance, multiple pipe failures, or continual leaks.

Material Deterioration

  • Causes: Older materials like lead or galvanized steel can deteriorate over time, affecting water quality and flow.

  • Symptoms: Brown or rust-colored water, leaks, and a metallic taste in the water.

Addressing these problems requires professional assessment and intervention, such as inspections, repairs, or replacements, to ensure the system functions efficiently and safely.
