What is the Main Line?
Your main line is the line that brings all water into your home. The city or well main line is attached to your home’s private water line. The main line is the large “main” pipe bringing all your water in and connects to your water meter and several other connections along the way. As with any system in the home, it can break down or need repair.
Common Signs of a Main Line Leak
Considering so many systems, faucets and appliances use the water from one place, it is no wonder the pipes can wear out. If that happens, you will experience high water bills and decreased pressure. Here are the signs to look for in a water main line leak.
- Contaminated water, or water that looks dirty.
- Foul-smelling water can indicate a blockage or leak.
- If your water valve is leaking, you may notice a high bill and decrease in pressure.
- If wet spots start popping up or mildew on the floor, you may have a leak. Damp walls are another sign.
Early detection is when you know something is not right but aren’t sure what that may be. So, you call a plumber out, and they will perform leak detection. If all water is shut off and the meter is still running, that is a good indicator something is awry.
Early detection stops bursts, breaks, mold, mildew, rotting walls and floors, and more. Call for leak detection as soon as you notice an issue with the water flow.
