Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Main Water Line


Plumbing in your home is extremely important for the day-to-day functions, but there are two main plumbing lines that need to be completely functional at all times. Those two plumbing lines are your septic or sewer line and your main water line. If your main water line doesn’t work properly, your house will not be able to receive the clean, fresh water you need! Without a well-functioning septic or sewer line, your house’s wastewater won’t be removed appropriately. Keep reading below for signs that could be indicating that it’s time for ASAP Plumbing to replace your main water line.

Low Water Pressure
If you are experiencing issues with your main water line, the pressure on the inside line could decrease significantly, which then causes your house to have low water pressure. All of the water faucets will have low pressure if there’s a problem with the main water line, so if you are experiencing this, it is time to call ASAP Plumbing!

Soggy Yard Spots
The water line in your house is buried in the ground around your yard. Therefore, if a leak occurs, the water will seep into the dirt and head toward the surface, which eventually will create a soggy area.

Discolored Water
Corrosion is one of the main causes of a failing water line. If you are experiencing these issues, you may notice a discoloration of your water due to rust being in your water flow. The discoloration will appear in all of your home's faucets and would be in both the hot and cold water.

High Utility Bills
If your sewer line or main water line is damaged, it can result in costly utility bills. If your water bills are consistently higher than normal, then it could be a sign that your water line needs to be replaced.

Odd Noises
Have you been hearing odd noises when no water is running through your house? Hearing noises when a faucet is running is normal, however, if you hear something without the water running, then your water line may need to be checked out!

Plumbing issues are bound to happen at some point, but you won’t want to deal with the consequences of a broken main water line! In order to help prevent this, you will need to have a plumber come out and annually inspect your water line and plumbing system to help prevent future issues from arising.
