Water lines are one of the most important aspects of your home other than the roof over your head. Your water line is responsible for supplying water to your sinks, toilets, shower, hose, refrigerator, and more. If your water line is malfunctioning or has broken in some way, you won’t have the access you need to water in your home. In some cases, your water lines may be outdated or damaged and need replacement. At High Tech Plumbing, we offer comprehensive water line services like installation, replacement, and repairs. We’ll perform an honest and thorough inspection of your water line to see what is necessary and will work closely with you to understand what you need.  

One of the biggest problems many homeowners face is that they’ve waited too long to have their water line inspected. If your water line is damaged, you might not know it until it bursts and you no longer have running water. Not only will you not have access to water in your home, but that water will be draining out beneath your home, wasting the water and potentially damaging your home’s foundation. If you would like to schedule an inspection, contact High Tech Plumbing immediately.

Below are some things you should consider when it comes to the water line in your home:

Their age

Do you know how old your water pipes are? According to a 2010 report from the National Association of Water Companies and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, about half of pipes in the United States are in poor condition. Water mains typically last around 47 years before breaking, and you might be surprised to find that your water line may be reaching that age.

Trees and soil

Natural erosion or damage can be caused by trees or soil. Soil low in resistivity and high in chloride content may cause corrosion of pipes, which may eventually result in leaks and even contamination. According to NACE International, clay soil is extremely corrosive to pipes, while sandy soil is less so. Although clay soil will corrode your pipes slowly, you may not know that it has been happening until a burst occurs.

Warning signs

Sometimes, preventing water line damage can be as simple as understanding the warning signs. Have you spent time thinking about the way you use water or drains in your home and how that may impact your pipe’s health? If you frequently put greasy foods through the disposal, are noticing that your toilets or drains are getting clogged more often, or your faucet stammers every time you turn it on, these are all signs that you may have damaged or broken pipes.
