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.
