Signs That Your Water Line is in Trouble

April 11th, 2016

The water line is the pipe that extends from your city’s water main to your home. All water that flows into your home passes through the water line first, which makes it a pretty vital part of your plumbing system. Water lines are made of pretty sturdy material, for the most part. Most people are never going to have to repair or replace their water lines for this reason. However, it is still possible for your water line to develop some serious issues under certain circumstances. Read on to find out how to tell when your water line might be in trouble.

Puddles

Most homeowners have a front or back yard, one of which will have the water line running under it. If the water line develops a leak of some sort, especially a large one, the water will filter up through the ground and start forming puddles in your yard. If you have a growing puddle of water in your yard, and there’s no indication of how it got there, it’s very likely that you have a water line leak that needs to be dealt with.

Decreasing Water Pressure

Now, a decrease in your home’s water pressure could indicate a number of different things. If it’s limited to one water appliance, or one area of the home, it’s possible that you have a more localized leak somewhere in the system. However, if you have a substantial decrease in water pressure across your entire home, it’s probably an issue with the water line. It could be either a rupture or a blockage, but you’ll need to have a professional examine it to make sure.
