What Can Damage My Main Water Line?

logoBecause pipes are not exactly the most technologically complex components of a home, some homeowners seem to think that they are foolproof. If only this were the case. Sure, your pipes are reliable, and we don’t live in an area where we have to worry about frigid winter temperatures freezing our pipes. However, there are still many instances in which plumbing pipes can be damaged. And this certainly includes your main water line.

If you are ever concerned about your main water line for any reason, we strongly urge you to contact us immediately. We can handle your plumbing repairs in Phoenix for you. But first you have to let us know that there is a problem! And trust us, you’ll want to get out ahead of your main water line repairs as much as possible. The longer that you wait to have your main water line repaired, the greater the consequences are likely to be.

Tree Roots, Rust and Corrosion, Shifting Soil, And More

The sad truth of the matter is that your water line may be damaged for any number of reasons. We hate to be the ones to break it to you, but it’s the reality of the situation. Did you know, for instance, that parched trees may actually infiltrate your main water line and cause damage? Or that older pipes may simply corrode or rust over time, particularly if your water contains elements making rust and corrosion more likely? And what about the fact that settling soil can actually lead to damage itself? Or that landscapers could potentially damage your water line when servicing your property?

It’s a lot to consider, and there is really no way in which to completely eliminate the risk of water line damages. What you can do, however, is learn to spot the signs that such problems may be developing. That way, our professional plumbers can do what it takes to resolve the problem promptly and effectively before major damage can be done.

Keep Your Senses on High Alert

Soggy patches beneath your feet when you’re walking on your property could indicate that you have a main water line leak. You might also have lush spots on the yard, where others are dry and burnt looking. You might notice the sound of trickling water, even if you’re sure you’re not using any in the house. Or you may notice your water bill keeps creeping up.

Does any of this mean that you definitely have a main water line leak? No, and that’s the point. They’re warning signs that warrant further attention, and that attention should come from trained, professional plumbers. You know—like the pros on our staff! Our plumbers are some of the finest in the business, excelling just as much in the diagnosing of plumbing problems as they do in actually resolving those problems. Reach out with any concerns that you may have.
