Signs You Need Water Main Repairs

The most obvious sign that there’s a problem with your main water line is that your water supply cuts off, but sometimes, there are hidden leaks you might not catch immediately. In that case, you need leak detection and repair.

Other signs of a water line issue include:

  • Discolored water that’s muddy, yellow, or cloudy
  • Poor water pressure when you turn on a tap
  • Unusually high water bills

Don’t wait to schedule service if you notice these or any other issues with your home’s water supply. Delaying repairs doesn’t just leave you without water – it could also result in serious water damage to your property.

Common Causes of Water Main Breaks

Many problems could lead to a water main break, including:

  • Corrosion
  • Shifting soil
  • Tree root infiltration
  • High water pressure
  • Mineral buildup
  • Freezing and thawing ground

Understanding how the issue happened can make it easier to resolve. Albemarle Heating & Air’s licensed plumbers can assess your situation to determine the cause of your water main break and mitigate future issues.

We truly care about your health, safety & comfort

Water Line Installation & Replacement

It might make more sense to replace your water line entirely, depending on the situation. Our plumbers can give you the best recommendation once we closely examine your water main.

Some reasons you might replace a line rather than repair it include:

  • High repair costs
  • Outdate piping materials
  • Extensive damage

Sometimes, there are larger issues at work when a water main breaks, like extensive pipe damage throughout your home. In that case, you may need whole-home repiping. Trust our experts to suggest the best course of action for your plumbing.

Frequently Asked Questions

The main line connects to the municipal water treatment facility, and the supply pipes connect to that main line to deliver water to fixtures throughout your home.

Leaks or cracks in your supply pipes are often easily repaired, while a main water line issue is more complicated because the pipe is underground.

The most common pipe types for Virginia homes are CPVC, copper, and PEX. PEX pipes are among the most durable modern pipe materials, as they’re corrosion-resistant and unlikely to burst. If you have outdated piping in your home, they need to be replaced.

When it comes to water main pipes, you need durable pipes that won’t corrode or break. Cast iron, galvanized steel, and polybutylene shouldn’t be used for the main line, and if yours uses these materials, we recommend a new water line.
