Think about how old your home’s water lines are. At some point, they’ll wear down enough that you need to replace them. Luckily, when you need to replace or repair your water line, you can rely on Alpha Plumbing to take care of it. Here are some ways to recognize when you need this service.
You See Water Outside
Summer is a time of year when we can expect plenty of rain. But if you see standing water in your yard even when it hasn’t rained, then that’s a bad sign. Why? Because it tells you that your water line is broken and is gushing water onto your lawn when you don’t want or need it to. Just in case, you should inspect the pipes around the exterior of your home. If the grass near the pipe outlets are unusually green, then it’s a definite sign that your water line is compromised.
Foundation is Weakening
If your house’s foundation gives way, then your house won’t be standing much longer. If this happens, you will have to move. Another way to find out if you need water line maintenance is to inspect the foundation of your home. You might not think it’s possible, but the concrete in your home’s foundation will eventually soak in all of the extra water that is leaking out.
Inspect your plumbing fixtures. If you hear weird sounds while flushing your toilet or washing your hands in the kitchen sink, then it’s another potential sign of water line damage. Something might be wrong with the plumbing, which could also be indicated by your water bills going up every month.
Skyrocketing Water Bills
Your water bills could be going up every month and you might not know why. It’s not your fault – you probably need some water line repairs that you are unaware of – at least until now!
