A ready supply of fresh water is essential to your home, and daily activities. The main water line that delivers fresh water is very durable and typically lasts for decades. Unfortunately, there are a number of factors that can cause the failure of your home’s water supply line. Age is a common factor, as over time deterioration will occur eventually resulting in the interruption of the water supply. Tree roots, corrosion and mechanical breakage are examples of other conditions that can cause you to lose the water supply to your home, and result in costly water leaks. The following are common warning signs that may indicate your need for a water line repair in Fort Worth:
Discolored water can be due to soil contamination or corroded pipe. First call your water supplier and ask if they have a line break or are providing repair of pipes in your area. If so, the discoloration may be due to the entry of soil due to broken pipe or repairs. If they are not, a line break could be your own water line has broken, and is allowing soil to contaminate the water entering your home. You may notice reduced water pressure in your home if your line has a leak, depending on the size.
Galvanized and iron pipes are no longer installed, but a number of homes still contain them, including the main supply line connecting the water meter to the home. If you’re experiencing discolored water and have metal pipe either indoors or out, it could indicate they are corroded. Consider replacement with modern pipe materials to prevent water leaks and potentially serious damage to your home and its foundation.

Signs on the Lawn
While water leaks in the supply line between the water meter and home may be as obvious as water bubbling up from the ground, or water ponding on the lawn, leaks can also be subtle with little or no indications. The soil characteristics, the location of the leak and the terrain are factors that may affect the signs. For example, there may be no indications at all on your property, the water can follow the pipe down a sloping lawn and exit the soil on the street, or a neighbors lawn. Signs to watch for include damp or saturated soil without explanation. In addition, lush grass or landscaping may be healthier for the extra water of a leak or dying due to excessive water. You may also notice depressions appearing on your lawn. Our plumbers can provide the water line repair in Fort Worth you need.
Low Water Pressure
A drop in water pressure throughout your home may be due to a water line leak. While there are other causes of low water pressure, a water line leak is one of them.
High Water Bill
