How Does a Main Water Supply Line Work?
Your water main needs pressure in order to transport water where it’s supposed to go. This is achieved in a number of ways, including through the use of a pump, gravity, or compressed air. Many problems with water mains stem from a loss in pressure, which can result from a leak or corrosion at some point in the pipe.
Main water line leaks are not uncommon. Holes and cracks will happen over time due to soil or frost corroding the external part of your pipes. Pipes are under extreme pressure and these holes or cracks cause water to leak from your line to the surface of your lawn. Mater main leaks can also spread onto the street, into your basement, across your lawn, or throughout your home. That’s why if you suspect an issue with your main water line or believe it needs to be repaired, call us right away to schedule an appointment.
How Do I Detect a Main Water Line Leak?
Water Main leaks often go unseen because they are located under your concrete slab or somewhere beneath the lawn. Yet undetected leaks lead to expensive and extensive damage while also increasing your water bill. The best way to know for sure that you have a plumbing leak is to turn all of your water fixtures off and look to see if your water meter (the device that measures your water use) is showing water flowing or not. From there, if you need to turn off the main water line, look for the main line shutoff valve, normally located next to the water meter. You may need a water meter key to access the meter and shutoff valve, so consider purchasing one of these tools if you do not already have one.
