An essential part of the plumbing for a home is the water line that carries fresh water from a municipal source and into the pipes that run to faucets, showerheads, and appliances. The water line is durable but not indestructible. It can develop breaks and leaks from tree root infiltration, soil shifting, and corrosion. Pipes in houses built pre-1970 are often made from metals prone to decay. At some point, you may need to call on professional plumbers to repair the water line or even replace it.
If you live in Baxter, IA or elsewhere between the “golden circle” of Ames, Des Moines, Newton, and Marshalltown, the plumbing contractor of choice for water main services is Baxter Comfort Solutions. Our plumbers will arrive at your house in a truck fully stocked with all the parts necessary to handle most problems on the first visit. We can handle both repairing and replacing your water line—whatever you need to enjoy a steady flow of fresh water into your house.
The water line isn’t a part of the plumbing you can see, so when it begins to leak or something else is wrong with it, you may not realize it at first. But there are warnings to watch for that will tell you the line may need repair or replacement work:
When you have a suspicion that your water line is leaking, make a note of the reading on the water meter, then spend a full hour without using any water in the house. Re–check the meter, and if it’s changed, you have a leak—if not in the water line, then somewhere else in the plumbing system, and it’s time to reach out to professional plumbers.
You never want to hesitate when it comes to calling for professional water line repairs. Allowing trouble with this pipe to continue not only wastes water, but it threatens to leave your house with no fresh water at all—making most daily task almost impossible. Water line breaks can also cause significant damage to your property if they aren’t remedied.

We’ve been in business for 75 years, and our licensed plumbers have the experience and equipment to make sure that you have the best quality service for your main water line repair or water replacement—or any other indoor plumbing work you require.
