How to Tell You Need Main Water Line Repair

Indications that you have a broken or clogged water main (tree root infiltration is one of the common causes for this) can be obvious or they can be subtle. Here are some of the signs to watch for:

  • No water from taps: This is the big indication, but it’s also one that you need to be cautious about since it might be a municipal water supply problem. Check with your neighbors first before you call for repairs.
  • Water discoloration: When you see the sort of water discoloration that you usually expect when you turn that taps on after a long vacation, it might mean breaks in the water line are allowing impurities to enter.
  • Drop in water pressure: This is another trouble that could be from municipal issues. If it is occurring all around the house and not at one faucet, it might be time to contact repair professionals.
  • Water pools on your property: Larger leaks in the water line will result in pools of water on your lawn or garden. If you have a soggy lawn and you don’t know the reason, it’s time to get plumbers on the job.
