There are two sides to your residential plumbing system. There is the drain and sewer side of the operation, which is responsible for disposing of all the waste and wastewater that exits your home. Then, of course, there is the supply side of the system. This is the side tasked with bringing clean, potable water into your living space in the first place. When problems develop with your supply side plumbing, especially with your main water line in Las Vegas, NV, you need to have those problems resolved as swiftly as possible.
The best way in which to ensure that your main water line is repaired or replaced not only promptly but successfully as well is to schedule service with a member of our team. Our plumbers have the experience and expertise that they need to correctly diagnose any problems and to resolve those problems with care. That begs the question, though: when should you call for water line services?
Signs of Trouble
One of the trickier aspects of dealing with plumbing problems is the fact that these problems may develop well out of sight. It is not as though you can just visually check your water line for leaks, right? Fortunately, there are plenty of indicators that you’ve got a compromised water line. You just have to know what to look out for.
- Rumbling or hissing at your main water line connection. If you are near your main water shut-off valve, and you hear any sort of rumbling or hissing coming from that general area when there is no water in use throughout your home, you may actually be hearing the sounds of a leak. Double check to make sure that nobody has started a load of laundry or dishes, etc. If you still hear the sound and are certain that no water is being used, a leaking water line is a real possibility.
- A loss of water pressure throughout the house. If you have low water pressure at a single point in your home, such as at a sink or in the shower, then it is possible that the piping servicing that one particular area or fixture is leaking. If you are experiencing low water pressure throughout the whole house, however, you may have a leaking water line. This issue won’t always develop even in the event of leaks, but it is one to be aware of.
- Finally, and perhaps most obviously, there is the issue of water pooling in your yard. We don’t have too many rainy days in our area. If there is a wet patch in your lawn, despite the fact that we’ve had nothing but our average dry weather recently, then it is likely that the water that you are seeing is, in fact, coming from the main water line. It could also be from a leak in a neighbor’s water line that is just pooling on your property, though. That is why you need a professional to investigate matters.
When a water line bursts, due to age, corrosion, seismic activity, or any other causes, the problem must be dealt with swiftly to protect both your convenience and the overall condition of your property. We repair and replace water lines using both traditional and trenchless methods. Our team will determine which is best for your situation, and we will do the job right the first time.
