In theory, your plumbing system is pretty simple, right? The supply side brings water into your home, you use that water at the various fixtures and appliances throughout your home, and the drainage system takes it away in a very hygienic and convenient manner. While that process is simple to understand, you have to keep in mind that even seemingly simple systems will encounter operational problems from time to time.
One of the biggest problems that you may encounter with your plumbing system is a damaged water line. Your water line is buried on your property, of course, so you may be wondering how it is that you can recognize signs of trouble with this pipe to begin with. The sooner that any problems with your plumbing system are resolved, the better. That is why The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas has some tips to help you figure out if you may need a main water line replacement in Las Vegas.
Is Your Water Pressure Low?
Low water pressure can occur in one’s home for a number of different reasons. It also may not occur even when there is a problem with the main water line. That being said, if your water pressure drops suddenly, and it drops throughout the entire house—as opposed to at just one fixture—then you may well be dealing with a leaking water line.
At the very least, there is a problem of some sort with your plumbing, even if it is not directly related to the water line. Contact a member of our team right away if you encounter this problem. Don’t just wait around hoping that it will go back to normal.
Is Your Yard Soggy?
One of the most obvious signs that a water line replacement may be in order is a soggy yard. Like we said above, the water line serving your home is buried beneath the ground. That means that a leak in that line may wind up saturating the ground surrounding it.
We live in a pretty dry area, obviously. The ground may be able to absorb a good bit of water. If you do notice squishy, wet areas, or if there are actual puddles forming on your property, it should definitely set off the alarm bells.
Is Your Water Bill Spiking?
Depending upon where the leak in your main water line is, you may notice a spike in your water costs. That increased cost may not even come close to the expense of repairing damages to your property caused by the leaking water line, though. If it’s near enough to your house, you could even be looking at structural damage.
The professional plumbers on our team have the experience, training, and tools that they need to access your water line and pinpoint the source of any problems with it. In some cases, repair may be possible. In others, a full replacement is going to be the best or only option. Whatever the case, you can count on us to do the job right and to do it in a timely manner.
