Households depend on water, and your home’s water line is essential in providing you with the water you need. Water lines are generally buried under yards and in foundations, making it complicated to access them for regular inspections and service. Sometimes, however, it may be necessary to have your water line replaced. Signs a replacement may be in order include:
While replacing your water line may seem like an overwhelming endeavor, you should never ignore the above signs or delay getting professional assistance. A water line leak or break can cause excessive flooding in your home and yard, causing costly water damage and structural issues.
When you call our St. Cloud water line experts, we will use cameras to inspect the line to identify any damage and the cause of the problems. Our camera equipment allows us to determine the location of the problem without digging up your yard or risking further damage to the line.
Some water lines simply need a repair, which can involve coating the line with food-grade epoxy to seal off leaks, gaps, or holes and to protect from corrosion. Such a coating is not possible with some pipes, however, and the pipes may need to be replaced. In addition, lead or Polybutylene pipes are unsafe for your household and should be fully replaced.
Our professional team knows that replacing a water main is a big job that can disrupt your life for a period of time. Excavation is required to remove your pipes and install new ones. However, our experts know the impact water line replacement can have, so they always use care to cause minimal disruption and return your yard back to its original state as much as possible.
