Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Main Water Line


Over time, your main water line experiences plenty of wear and tear from weather conditions and a lot of usage. It is the power source that ensures that everything is functioning properly for your plumbing system. Being unaware of the signs that it may be time to replace that water line can cause a lot of damage and frustration. Just like the drains and pipes in your house, the main water line can get clogged up and break down, leaving you with a mess to clean up.

An Increase in Your Water Bill is sometimes an indicator that it is time to replace your water line. If the water bill suddenly spikes up, but your water usage is relatively the same, you should get it checked out. No one wants to dump extra money into a water bill unnecessarily.  

Water Pressure Issues If you have begun to notice that when you take a shower, wash your hands or run bath water for the kids that the water flow is inconsistent or the pressure is consistently low, it may be a sign that it’s time to get a new water line. Alongside the low water pressure, a drop in the water temperature can be an issue as well. The water won’t get or stay hot enough resulting in disappointing showers.

Contaminated Water can oftentimes be a result of a damaged water line. Whenever there is a break or leak in the main water line, it creates an opportunity for dirt and debris to flow with the water right into your drinking, shower and kids’ bath water. Be on guard of any discoloration, odd smells or grainy textures that you may experience in your faucet water. It means that your water is contaminated which is a serious health risk if left untreated.

Soggy Lawn With it being officially summer, the lawn is usually super dry due to hot temperatures and beaming sun. If you begin to notice wet and soggy patches in your lawn when there hasn’t even been rain, there may be an issue with your main water line. Soggy spots in the lawn usually indicate that there is some sort of crack in the water line causing leakage into the yard.

Pest Problems Have you begun to experience issues with pests such as ants, roaches and maybe even a rat? Have you called the exterminator over and over and that seems to only help temporarily? This issue is most likely due to your main water line being compromised. If there is a crack or any type of breakage in the water line, it leaves an opening for small and annoying creatures to crawl through the main water line straight into your home. It’s important to fix this issue as soon as you can so that you don’t keep dumping money into an exterminator, as well as to prevent any health risks that come with having certain pests in your home.
