SIGNS OF A WATER LINE BREAK
Furthermore, similar to sewer line breaks, water main line breaks have fairly obvious signals that point to a problem for a replacement. These are:
- Suddenly high water bills
- Weak ground
- Collapsed ground or sidewalk
- Decreased or inconsistent water pressure
- Spinning water meter when water is not turned on
- Lack of water supply
- Puddles in the yard, clearly not associated with rain water
If your water main line breaks, it must be addressed immediately. If not, your utility bills will increase drastically due to the large amount of water wasted.
CAUSES OF A WATER LINE BREAK
Most causes of water main line failure are out of the home or business owner’s control. It could simply be old age that causes water lines to deteriorate. Old or outdated pipes are constantly carrying a flow of water which will inevitably result in rust, corrosion, and sediment build-up. Other common causes of water main breaks we see include:
- Tree root intrusion
- Broken pipes
- Misaligned pipes
- Leaking pipes or joints
- Prior repair using the wrong kind of pipe connection
