Water Line Replacement
Your home’s water line is one of the most vital parts of your entire plumbing system. It takes the water from your city water treatment plant and distributes it throughout your home or business. Water lines are frequently buried beneath foundations or under your lawn. This makes them very difficult to access, inspect and service. Difficult, but not impossible–especially for the water line replacement experts at Stewart Plumbing. There are a few warning signs to keep an eye out for that will help you determine when it’s time to give our water line replacement experts:
- Visible water flowing from the ground or foundation.
- Weak or damp ground around your home.
- Water damage on floors.
- Reduced water pressure.
Water Line Replacement Solutions
Quickly addressing problems in your water line is vital to reducing water damage to your home or business. The water entering your home through the line is extremely pressurized so a single leak or break can quickly result in flooding, water damage and structural problems. Since water lines are often obscured by walls, floors and foundations, the first thing we will do is inspect the line with our camera equipment. Our state of the art, in-line cameras allows us to see into your water line and determine the cause and location of the problem without causing further damage or disruption to your system.
In most cases, our water line replacement experts can quickly repair the line using a high quality epoxy coating. This coating is powerful stuff and will seal off pin leaks, holes and gaps as well as decrease chances of future corrosion. In some cases, it’s not possible to use the coating, especially if your pipes are made of lead or polybutylene. Both of these materials have been found to be unsafe for your water supply and will need to be removed completely. Unfortunately, the removal of hazardous pipe material will require the excavation of your property. It’s no fun, but in these situations, it’s a necessary evil.
