Water Line Service Issues
Water Line Leaks in Your Home or Business
Water leaks don’t cause catastrophic flooding in your basement or produce geysers of water that spray in every direction—at least not at first. Most leaks happen slowly over time, and are the result of corrosion, high pressure, or roots that come too close to the line. Metal water lines that are old enough may simply fail as a result of old age, causing them to crack or corrode.
The number one way to reduce the risk of water line leaks is to have regular maintenance performed on your plumbing. Have it inspected regularly. While unexpected problems will arise, knowing who—and when—to call for professional assistance can make all the difference between several thousand dollars in repair costs and being able to stop the problem before it escalates.
Water Line Problems
There are some key ways to check for water line problems. Unlike other plumbing leaks, you won’t notice issues with meter readings because the water line leaks occur between the meter and shut off valve. Instead, signs to look out for include:
- Damp spots in the basement
- Overly wet places on the ground around your house
- Moisture on the concrete of your foundation
Pinpointing the exact placement of the leak is best left to professionals, but knowing that one exists is the first step in solving this common plumbing problem.
