Why Water Lines Break
No one wants to walk outside their home to discover that their yard is flooded. By the same token, discovering a flood on the interior of your home is also devasting. In some cases, water line breaks can be prevented with comprehensive maintenance and thorough plumbing inspections. The following are some reasons why your water line may break:
- Corrosion – Underground pipes are subject to many conditions. Your metal pipes can be corroded by conductive soil. Keep an eye out for excessive corrosion or rust on any external pipes.
- Freezing – Water lines can break due to freezing weather. While that may not be common in Phoenix, we have seen it happen. Fluctuating temperatures can cause pipes to crack, and small cracks eventually lead to large breaks.
- Soil Conditions – Many factors can weaken pipes, including pressure, movement, and the roots of trees or plants. Soil conditions can break down your pipes over time.
Water Line Lifespans & Expectations
Knowing more about your water line will let you know what to expect regarding repairs and replacements. Main water lines usually last between 40 and 80 years. Many factors will determine this timeline, including ground movement, pipe material, and tree root intrusions. Knowing what to look out for can help you stay on top of water line leaks and extend the lifespan of your water lines. Contact us if you notice water that puddles in your front yard. Water lines run underground, and water can collect there without your knowledge. Eventually, that water will become visible at the surface level. Another sign of a cracked, broken, or ruptured main water line is a significant increase in your water bills. You may also be contacted by the city if they suspect you may have a broken main water line. Our team will visit your home or business and complete a thorough inspection before beginning the repair or replacement process.
Signs You Might Have a Broken Water Line
It’s critical to catch a broken water line as soon as possible to avoid flooding, property damage, and costly water bills. There are many reasons why water lines break, and keeping an eye out for anything out of the ordinary can help you stay on top of the plumbing services you need. Learn to look for the following signs of a broken or damaged water line:
- Discolored Water – Brown or discolored water can be a sign of a water line break allowing dirt, debris, and contaminants into your water source.
- Low Water Pressure – Any disturbance in your water line, including ruptures and clogs, reduces the water pressure in your home.
- Pooled Water – Unexplained wet areas and pooled water in your yard can be signs that your water line is broken. Sinkholes should also be a reason to contact our team.
- High Water Bills – If you can’t explain an unusually high water bill, you may have a water line break.
