Main Water Line Repair
Main Water Line Repairs by Morris-Jenkins
You never realize how much you rely on water until your home’s plumbing isn’t working right. Is your water pressure so low it takes forever to rinse out your hair in the shower? Have you been noticing wet spots in your yard? Your water problems might all be coming from a broken main water line. Fortunately, you’re in the right place! Our plumbers see this sort of thing ALL the time, and we can get your home running like normal in no time.
Signs You Might Need Your Main Water Line Repaired
If you’re only noticing problems with low water pressure in one appliance, it might be as simple as a repair for that specific appliance. Main water line problems are going to impact your home in more than one place. And when we say, “low water pressure,” we’re not talking about a subtle change. You’d notice it!
Your Water or Electric Bill Has Increased
Sometimes, your utility bills might be a bit higher than average. If you have a mainline leak, you’re gonna have big changes in your water bills! If your water bill has skyrocketed, it’s time to call a plumber. If your main water line is leaking and your home relies on city water, the city may call to let you know something is wrong. If you’re on well water, your home uses electricity to get water, so you’ll also notice a change in your electric bills.
Bonus tip: Are you able to locate your water meter (it’s a gray or green box usually found near your mailbox)? If you can, check and see if the leak detector is spinning even when your water is shut off. That’s a sign there’s a leak somewhere!
You Have Wet Spots in Your Yard, House, or Driveway
Have you stepped in any squishy patches in your yard? Or noticed water damage in your home? Your plumbing is trying to tell you something! When you have wet areas on your property that never seem to dry up, it’s likely because you’ve got a leak somewhere in the water line. It’s not gonna get better on its own—you need a professional plumber!
You Hear Your Pressure Switch Clicking on and off (Well Water Only)
If your home uses well water, you have something called a pressure switch. This is what tells your well pump when to start and stop pumping water. If you have a damaged water line, your pressure switch might get confused by the leaking water. This can cause it to click on and off all the time.
