More Details about Main Water Line Repair

You may need water line repairs if you have noticed any of the following issues:

  • Drops in water pressure throughout your home
  • Water pooling in your yard
  • Strange-smelling water from the tap
  • Grainy or visibly cloudy/discolored water
  • Unexplained higher water bills

Any of these issues may mean there is a break in your water line, allowing water to leak out into your yard or other areas in your home, causing tap water to become contaminated, or enabling bacteria growth inside the pipes.

More Details about Main Water Line Replacement

In some cases, water line repair is not an option, and the water line must be replaced. This is common in older homes. Some older buildings have lead or galvanized pipes, either of which can be hazardous and should be replaced.

If the pipe has previously been repaired, replacement may be more cost-effective in the long run. Typically, if repairs would cost half or more of the cost of a total replacement, replacement is the preferred option.

R.J. Tilley can assess your main water line using video inspection and make a recommendation as to whether repair or replacement is your best option.
