Main Water Lines

Main water lines refer to the line running from the street to your house. Most homes receive their source water from the city or county. There is a pipe running from the source water line to each home.

There are a few common reasons a home may experience a failure with their main water line. These are generally due to seismic activity, nearby utility work, tree root growth, poor craftsmanship in the installation, and most of all time.Eventually, all pipes reach the end of their designed life.

A Utah homeowner can generally tell signs of a possible water main leak. This is most commonly in the form of a steady flow of water flooding into the house or yard, a hissing sound near where the pipe enters the house, and finally, a loss of water pressure.

Whenever you experience one of these signs, it is wise to call Your Plumber Salt Lake City to inspect and determine if that is in fact the problem.

The cost for repairing or replacing a broken main water line can vary, depending on the extent of the damage. We can also provide an estimate of the cost once we diagnose the problem.

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do to prevent this type of damage from happening, but letting us know the approximate age of your home could allow us to plan for an inspection when the life of the pipes draw near.

This proactive inspection could mean the difference between hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Internal Pipes

Sometimes this leak is exposed in a basement where there is an evident dripping or pooling of water.

Unfortunately, many leaks happen behind the closed walls where you can only tell from water stains, soft drywall, and flooding in lower level of the home.
