Water Line Leaks
While you might expect a water leak would cause a catastrophic flood in your basement or a geyser of water spraying in every direction, most leaks occur slowly, over time, and are the result of corrosion, high pressure or roots getting too close to the line. If your water line is old enough, the metal itself might simply have failed and started to corrode or crack due to age.
Fortunately, if you have regular maintenance done on your plumbing and inspect it regularly, most of these problems can be avoided. Obviously there are still times when unexpected problems will arise, and the key then is to know when to call for professional assistance.
Water Line Problems
There are a few ways to tell if you have water line problems. Unlike other plumbing leaks, your meter readings usually won’t hint at water line leaks because they usually occur between the meter and shutoff valve. Damp spots in your basement, on the ground around your house or on the concrete of your foundation are all sure signs of a leak in a major water pipe. Pinpointing it exactly may take a professional, but knowing it is there is the first step.
