The water your drink and use for cleaning and washing can easily be taken for granted. Problems with water lines delivering fresh, potable water to your home requires immediate attention to avoid any potential risk of contamination or escalating replacement costs.
Water Line Problems
Because they usually occur between the meter and shutoff valve, water line problems don’t normally show up on meter readings. If there are damp spots on the ground outside your home, damp spots in your basement, you may have a leak in a major water pipe. While suspecting a leak is a good first step, pinpointing it is work for a professional.
Water Line Leaks
Leaks typically occur over a long period of time. Usual culprits include high pressure, corrosion, or roots seeking moisture. Some older water lines simply fail due to age; corrosion and cracks increase with age. Even if you don’t have a disastrous basement flood, it’s best to side with caution and have a MoreVent licensed plumber inspect your lines for leaks.
