Water Main Leaks

It is common for a homeowner to first become aware of a water line leak after noticing a stream of water on the outside of the house, after experiencing low water pressure, or receiving a 3 day notice violation from the water company.  There are several important facts to assist in determining if your pipe is leaking, where the leak is coming from and whether the leak is from your pipe or a surrounding neighbor.

Important Information on Lead and Galvanized Water Mains

If you currently have a damaged lead or galvanized water main, there is only one option in resolving your issue. It is 100% illegal to make a repair on a lead or galvanized pipe; it is also very risky as an old pipe becomes very brittle over time. Attempting to repair a lead pipe may turn what should be a quick repair, into a large and potentially costly emergency.

There are many Factors to Consider When Identifying a Problem:

  • Size of the new pipe
  • Distance of the house to the city water main
  • When the city roadway was most recently paved
  • If a new tap installation is required
