Water Line Repair, Replacement, & Installation
For the vast majority of Indianapolis homes, water is delivered through a single mainline before branching off into multiple, smaller, in-home lines within your home. As a result, we’ve gotten used to having clean, serviceable water for washing, flushing, cleaning, cooking, and drinking at the turn of a faucet. When there’s a problem with your mainline, however, you could experience much more than a loss of these essential functions.
In fact, water line issues are a leading cause of property damage in Indianapolis. When you’re dealing with the main supply line running into your home, a small leak has the potential to turn into a flood of water very quickly. That’s why it’s so important to contact Plumb Doctor at the first sign of a water line issue.
Signs of a Water Line Issue
Your water line is the main pipe that brings water from the city’s system to your home. If you notice one or more of these symptoms of a leak or other problem with your mainline, contact Plumb Doctor immediately:
- Discolored or foul-tasting water. Corrosion within your main water line or excess sediment seeping into your water through a crack can cause your water to become dirty or rusty.
- Strange noises. Clanking, hissing, banging, or gurgling within your pipes is not normal, and may be a sign of a larger issue with your mainline.
- Sudden loss of water pressure. Leaks or other issues with your mainline can cause your home to lose water pressure quite suddenly.
- Standing water in your yard. If you notice a puddle or consistently wet area in your yard, water may be seeping up from the water line below.
- High water bills. Damaged water lines can drastically increase your water usage and cause your utility bills to jump suddenly without explanation.
What Causes Water Line Leaks?
Residential water line leaks can be caused by a number of different factors, all of which should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent flooding. Common sources of water line damage include:
- Rusting and other corrosion of pipes occurs over the course of several years, leading to leaks, breakage, and other issues.
- Tree root intrusion. Trees planted too close to your water line can grow into the pipes themselves, causing failure.
- Similar to tree root damage, construction equipment can damage your water line and cause sudden flooding of your property.
