Five Signs You need Main Water Line Repair

Depending on the size of your family, your plumbing system works a heavy load to keep water flowing in and out every day. All of that work eventually takes its toll on the system and can lead to problems. Here are the five most common signs that you have issues with your main water line.

  • Significant Increase In Water Bills: It’s normal for your water bills to fluctuate from season to season -- to be higher in the summer and lower in the winter. However, if your water bill is consistently higher than average, and you haven’t increased your water usage, it’s usually a leak somewhere in your plumbing.
  • Strange Noises Coming From Household Pipes: If you hear gurgling from your sink or when you flush the toilet, it’s a sign that you have a blockage in your main water line.
  • Cracks In The Foundation: Leaking water lines often cause structural damage to your home, such as cracking foundations. If you don’t deal with this issue as soon as possible, you risk the structural integrity of your home.
  • Reduced Water Pressure: Low water pressure coming out of a single fixture usually means there’s a block in that particular pipe; however, when you have reduced water pressure throughout the entire house, it could be a blockage in your main water line.
  • Cloudy Water: Various problems could lead to cloudy water, such as issues with your water heater or a problem with a particular fixture. Murky water is also the result of deteriorating pipes, which could be your main water line.

Contact us as soon as you notice any of these problems so you can get to the root of the issue before it causes additional damage to your home.

What Causes Main Water Line Clogs & Damage?

As a homeowner, you take good care of your home by conducting routine maintenance to ensure everything is running smoothly and to fix minor problems. However, one area many people ignore is their plumbing. Failing to maintain a healthy plumbing system can lead to clogs, water leaks, and severe issues with your main water line. Here are the most common causes of water line damage.

Poor Installation

Sometimes, the plumbing company that installed the water line was either incompetent or didn’t pay enough attention to detail, resulting in a water line that was doomed to fail before its time. If the contractor who installed your main water line did a substandard job, you’d end up having to replace it sooner than expected.

Freezing & Thawing

When temperatures drop below zero, it can cause water lines to freeze, especially if they’re not buried deep enough. Too much freezing and thawing put a strain on these pipes, causing them to fail prematurely.

Shifting Soil

It’s assumed that the soil under our homes will remain relatively stable throughout our lifetime; however, underground conditions can rapidly change from natural earth shifting to construction.

Tree Roots

Tree roots naturally seek out accessible sources of water, so if you have tiny cracks in your main water line, these roots burrow their way in and grow to form a knotted mess that clogs up the entire system.


Older plumbing materials succumb more quickly to wear and tear than modern ones. So, if your plumbing system is over 50 years old, there’s a good chance it’s in bad shape and needs replacing.
