Every residence has a few lines going in that make modern living possible: the electrical line, the sewer line, and the water line. Your water line gives your home the clean water that provides for all the water needs of your home. If there is something wrong with your water line it can affect the entire house. Here are some signs you should look out for that will tell you that your water line plumbing needs repairs.
Low Water Pressure
This is perhaps the most obvious sign that your water line is having problems. Water comes out of your faucets and shower heads with lower pressure than normal. Sometimes the problem is so severe that it can render your shower, bathtub, or washing appliances useless. If there is a sudden decrease in your water pressure, you need to get it checked out as soon as possible.
High Water Bills
Usually water bills are consistent if you do not change your water usage significantly from month to month. But if you notice your water bill suddenly skyrocket without experiencing any leaks in your faucets or showerheads, that may be an indication that there is a leak in your actual water line. It’s important to call a professional as the problem could be developing underground, and only a trained plumber has the unique tools necessary to diagnose this problem. Don’t start digging up your yard!
Puddles in your Yard
Leaking water from a water line has to end up somewhere, and that somewhere is usually on your lawn between your property and the street. The ground saturation causes water to rise to the surface and create puddles. If you notice any unexplained puddles in your yard, you may have a water line leak and should contact a trusted plumbing company as soon as possible.
