In short - you need Matt's Plumbing Services.
What Types Of Leaks Could I See In My Water Main?
There are two primary types of leaks that can develop in your water main, ranging from the obvious to the deviously hidden:
- Gushing Leak - This happens when there is a burst caused by applying excessive pressure on the surface where the pipe runs - for instance, running over it with a heavy vehicle. The pipe could also have separated at the solder joint or become damaged due to a massive increase in water pressure. These leaks are obvious and can quickly overwhelm your yard and potentially flood your home.
- Drip Or Pinhole Leak - If you have a threaded joint that's loose or a small crack in a pipe, you'll experience this type of leak. They are much harder to diagnose and find, but they can still cost you a lot of money in wasted water and damage.
Due to the potential for disaster, if you suspect you have a leak in your water main it's best to leave that work to a professional plumber rather than trying to fix it yourself. That's why Matt's Plumbing Services is here.
Why Is My Water Main Having Problems?
There are various reasons why water may not be properly flowing to your house. One is an airlock on the main pipe. This is basically an air bubble or bubbles that block the water from reaching your home. Only a licensed plumber should handle issues like this.
Secondly, you could have a broken pipe - or worse, pipes. It's vital to determine the extent of the damage before you attempt to fix it, or you could overlook major issues that will bite you in the end. This is especially true if the pipes run under the concrete slab of your home, where a leak could have massive implications for the stability of your foundation.
Finally, there could be an issue with the type of pipe you have. There are many different materials used for pipework - copper, PVC, steel, and more - and each one needs to be handled differently and comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your home's situation, it could be more beneficial to you to have a different type of pipe installed for your main line.
