Replacing Your Main Water Line
We take our clean water supply for granted, until something goes wrong with the main water line. The water in your home is supplied by the main water line, which carries the water to the individual water lines that run to each appliance in your house. Just like a problem can arise with the water lines indoors, the underground water main can also become damaged over the years.
Main water line damage can be caused by:
- Pipe damage caused by aging
- Ground shifting
- Digging or excavation above the main water line
- Water pressure changes causing excessive pressure
- Ground settling
- Poor quality installation
- Ground freezing and thawing cycles
Signs of Damaged Main Water Line
When the main water line becomes damaged, your water can become unsafe to drink.
Signs of a problem with your main water line include:
- Discolored water
- A metallic taste in the water
- Visible rust or corrosion
- Low water pressure
- Wet patches on the lawn
- And higher than normal water bills
How to Check for Water Line Issues
One way to test for a main water line problem is to turn off all water and check your meter. Wait an hour and check again. If the meter moves and you know you haven’t used any water, you may have a leak. If you have any of the above signs of a problem, call for an inspection to determine if the water main is damaged.
Traditional trench and trenchless methods can be used for installing and replacing water lines in Portland, OR. The traditional method involves excavating a trench the entire length of the water line from the house to the street.
This method is time consuming, expensive, and causes damage to your lawn and landscape, as well as patios, walkways, and anything else in the way. The development of trenchless excavation methods allows for underground pipes to be installed and replaced without digging a trench and disrupting your property.
Trenchless methods require only two holes at either end of the water line. Qualified technicians use the best methods for each situation and make sure your water line is properly installed below the frost line for reliable performance.
