Main Water Line Repair

A main water line repair may be necessary if you develop a leak or another problem with the pipe that brings water from the municipal line to your Utah home or business.

Although this may sound like a potentially expensive problem, it may not be as bad as you imagine. In fact, depending on where your water main is located, this type of repair can be simpler and less expensive than repairing lines underneath your home or in the walls.

At Expert Plumbing, we understand how to quickly troubleshoot the problem and estimate the time and cost for repairs. Our experienced team will have your repairs complete in no time, restoring your water flow and getting you back to normal.

Do You Need Water Main Repair?

Some signs that you may have a problem with your main water line include insufficient water flow and the development of discoloration or unusual smell in your water. You might also notice telltale signs such as soggy sections of dirt, standing water or overgrowth of grass and plants in a certain area of the yard.

In the basement, you may notice unexplained wet patches or even mold growth along the path of the line when a leak is present. Listen for hissing or rumbling sounds when you turn off the faucet or after the toilet tank finishes filling. This could indicate a potential problem.

Finally, if you notice a spike in your water bill that you cannot otherwise explain, this could be a sign that you have a leak somewhere in the system, potentially in the main water line.

How Main Water Line Repair Works

In most cases, we can complete this work by digging a small trench to uncover the line and then replacing the faulty sections.

In some cases, however, you may need to consider replacing the line, rather than simply repairing one section. If your home is older, you may have cast-iron pipes that have deteriorated over time. In that case, replacing one section and leaving the rest of the old piping intact will only lead to more problems and expense.

Depending on how the line runs, we may also have to remove concrete or asphalt to run a new line. However, our team will always look for the most efficient and cost-effective approach to completing the work in order to minimize the time and expense of the project.
