There is very little that is more important than having access to fresh water every single day: Water is vital to life. Having it come into your house every day is something we tend to take for granted. The piping that brings the water into your home is rarely thought about – its underground so out of sight out of mind – that is until something goes horribly wrong and the crystal clear water you are dependent on stops flowing as it should. There are varieties of reasons why you can develop problems with the waterline – pipe corrosion, aged pipes, and tree root invasion are just a few reasons.
It is possible to keep an eye out for some warning signs that something might be wrong with your waterline. If you notice any of the following issues, please make sure you call a professional to help you resolve the issue as soon as possible:
Warning Sign #1 – Discolored Water
Suddenly you see your crystal clear water is now a disgusting brown color. The water might be changing color due to material coming off corroded pipes or it could be because the pipes are cracked and allowing dirt through and into the water supply.
Warning Sign #2 – Wet Spots in the Yard
When the yard is soppy and the weather has been dry or if you see pools of water, where there were never pools of water before, this is indication that you have a broken underground pipe. The broken pipe is allowing water through and the water is rising up out of the ground. This issue is a plumbing emergency! Call a professional to help you immediately!
Warning Sign #3 – Inadequate Water Pressure
If you are suddenly experiencing poor water pressure when you have never had an issue with it before – this can mean you have a leaking pipe, which is resulting in low water pressure. Many reasons can cause low water pressure, but a leaking pipe is definitely one of among the reasons cited for poor water pressure in the home. Additional reasons include dirty aerator screens, the need for a new showerhead, and pipe corrosion.
Warning Sign #4 – Unexplained Water Bill Increase
There is nothing like an increase in the water bill to make a property owner pay attention and to suddenly become alerted to a problem. You might need to replace the water line, you may be dealing with an unseen leak, and you should get a hold of a professional as soon as possible to deal with the issue.
