Uh-oh! Trouble with Your Main Water Line?

water-lineOf all the systems in your home, your plumbing system is definitely the most important! Imagine where you’d be without your shower or toilet? We reckon it wouldn’t be a pretty sight!

But, if there’s one component of your plumbing system that ranks supreme, it’s your main water line — without it, you wouldn’t have any water at all!

The trouble is that sometimes your main water line will run into trouble, which is a pretty big deal! Why? Because it can wreak havoc on the rest of your plumbing system. We assume you’d rather not pay for water leaking into your lawn, or for water going anywhere other than your faucet, toilet, or shower, correct?

So below, we have listed some of the tell-tale signs of a main water line that’s gone kerflooey. All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more (oh, and of course, remember to call us when you need a Lawrenceville, GA plumber!)

Do You Need Main Water Line Repairs?

There are a number of signs that suggest your main water line needs repairs. These include:

Soggy Spots in the Yard

The water line coming into your home is buried in the ground, so if a leak or leaks have developed, the water will seep into the dirt and head toward the surface. The seeping will eventually create soggy areas and/or puddles around your yard.

Low Water Pressure

When problems develop with your main water line, the pressure inside the line can decrease significantly, which will present itself in your home as low water pressure. Typically all the faucets will display low water pressure when there’s a problem with the main water line, so if you are experiencing this, it’s time to call for an expert.

Discolored Water

Corrosion is one of the causes of a failing water line. If this is the case with yours, you may see a discoloration of your water due to rust getting into the water flow. The discoloration would appear from all faucets and would be a part of both your hot and cold water.

Call in a Professional ASAP!

When the time comes to service your plumbing system, you want to be absolutely certain that you’ve hired a certified professional for the job. Only a professional plumber has the tools, training, and experience to safely and correctly handle the complex needs of your system.

Remember, It’s Not a Job for the Amateurs

Yes, there may be plenty of amateurs willing to service your system for a fairly cheap price, but remember that sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run. It is always better to call in a pro and get the job done right the first time around. Trust us, when it comes to your plumbing, you don’t want to take any risks!
