Broken Water Lines
Water line damage poses a serious threat to the functioning of your plumbing system. It can even be a serious threat to your health if a sewer rupture creates unsanitary conditions around your property. Whether you have copper, brass, steel, or another material of piping, most pipes will last at least 30 years, and many last as long as 100 years. Eventually, when your pipes do run into problems, a plumbing company can come out and find where the breakage or damage has occurred. At Bill Frusco Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling, we offer water line repair in Philadelphia to keep you safe.
If you suspect that your home has a broken water line, there are some telltale signs to look for. You may need water line repair in Bucks County if you spot:
Excess water: You will usually notice an unusual amount of water outside of the property around your meter box or your main shut-off valve.
Lower water pressure: If you have a drop in water pressure inside the house, it is likely that a serious problem exists with either your faucets or other appliances/fixtures inside the house. If you turn on your sink or shower and notice that the water pressure is weak, a sewer problem could be the culprit.
Sludge: If you happen to see brown sludge coming out of a faucet somewhere in your home, turn it off immediately and call a plumber as soon as possible. Brown sludge is caused by sewage contamination from backed up drains or sewer lines due to excessive usage from nearby homes or businesses.
High water bills: If you haven’t been using more water and there are no other plumbing issues on your property (eg. a toilet that keeps running), you may have a broken water line. Broken water lines allow excess water to seep out into the ground. So even if you are not using more water, water is being wasted in your system.
Lawn problems: Puddles of water or areas that are consistently muddy point to a broken water line. The water that is escaping your system may be seeping out into your property. This may even cause your lawn to grow faster or look healthier – but what looks nice on the surface may be a major problem underground.
A water line break inside a wall is a serious problem and it requires immediate action. A homeowner should notify our plumbing company in Philadelphia immediately if they detect a leak or other serious damage to their water line. In some cases, homeowners will need to deal with sewage backing up into certain areas of their home due to broken drain lines. You can always turn off your main valve that leads into your house through your basement in order to avoid unnecessary exposure to sewage.
The root of a water line problem is not always easy to find. At Bill Frusco Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling, we can perform camera line inspections to identify the cause of your broken water line. This advanced technology allows us to quickly and accurately diagnose the root cause of the problem. Your plumbing expert will use this information to determine the best course of action.
If the pipes cannot be repaired, new ones will need to be installed in their place. Before any work is started on your plumbing system, all tools must be disinfected with antibacterial solution so as not to introduce bacteria into the system. After repairs have been made, antimicrobial fluid should run through your water system for 20 minutes before using it again to keep everything clean and sanitary.
The cost of your water line repair in Montgomery County will vary greatly depending on the type of pipe you have, how long it has been broken, and how extensive the damage is. Water line problems usually occur when water freezes and expands, but they also can happen during an especially hard winter or after a particularly dry summer, which is called drought or shrinkage. Drought is the more common cause for failure because your water lines don’t move as much.
The two most common places where people experience pipe failure and leakage are at their outdoor spigot (faucet) and at their indoor toilet valve (not under the seat). These parts simply wear out over time, and copper is generally used for these applications due to its affordability.
