3 Signs Your Main Water Line Needs Help

Monday, January 22nd, 2024

Did you know that one of the most important parts of your residential plumbing system lies outside of your house? We’re talking about your home’s main water line. This pipe is responsible for bringing fresh water into your home from the municipal system. 

This pipe is buried within your property and doesn’t get any attention until it springs a leak or breaks. Issues can occur when the pipe material degrades due to age. Pipes from before the 1980s were often made from clay or galvanized steel which will decay over time. 

Modern water lines are made from sturdier materials which are resistant to the corrosion that plagues older piping materials. If your main water line is old or incurs damage for some reason, you should be aware of these three signs that you may need water line repair to fix the main water line to your house.

Those Clogged Drains May Be a Main Sewer Line Problem

Monday, July 24th, 2023

A single clogged drain is a huge inconvenience. But when your home has more than one clogged drain in it, that’s when you have serious cause for concern. When your home’s plumbing system has multiple drains that are clogged, it’s a warning sign that there are other problems deeper down in the plumbing system, like in your sewer line.

The integrity of your home’s sewer line is vital not only to your home comfort and convenience, but to your health and safety as well. Sewer lines are responsible for taking all the waste that your household produces and sending it to a treatment plant or septic tank. All it takes is a small issue with your sewer system and, before too long, you could have a sanitation problem as sewage backs up into your home or yard.

With multiple drains clogged or backed up in your home, this isn’t something you should attempt to fix yourself. You need professional drain cleaning to get to the root of the problem. And that problem is likely the main sewer line.
