Do You Need Water Pipe Replacement?
It can be difficult to tell whether water line replacement is the best option for your home’s plumbing system. In some cases, a plumber can make a few repairs to restore a broken water line to an adequate state. But at some point, replacing the water line will become the best option. How can you tell that this is the right choice for you?
Any sign that your water line is corroding is a good indicator that you should replace your pipes, rather than repairing them at a single point. At a certain point, corrosion will continue until your water line is full of leaks. Once the water line begins to wear away, this type of problem is inevitable, and a sizable amount of leakage may soon lead to damage to your property.
We recommend that homeowners stay proactive about the condition of their water lines by replacing them before major plumbing leaks flood the property or damage the foundation of the home. Galvanized steel pipes that are over 40–60 years old have a high risk of failure, so it may be a good idea to replace them before plumbing leaks become noticeable. If in doubt, schedule leak detection services with a professional to find out whether you need repair or replacement for your water main.
Common Problems with a Main Water Line
The main water line that runs from the municipal supply to the pipes and fixtures in your home is quite durable. However, there are a few common issues that may come up with your water line during your homeownership.
- Corrosion: Older corroding pipes may require complete water line replacement, but your new water line installation should last for many decades to come.
- Main Water Line Break: One common reason for this is tree roots that infiltrate the pipes, since they naturally grow toward sources of water.
- Scale Buildup: Mineral deposits can cause scale to build within the pipes, limiting the flow of water and severely reducing your water pressure.
