Water Lines

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.

How to Tell You Need Water Line Repair or Replacement

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:

  • Water pressure drops: When water pressure drops all around your house, it might be a municipal issue. If the pressure doesn’t soon return to normal, it’s possible that blockage or leaks in the water line are responsible.
  • Rising water bills: If the water line is losing water through leaks, you’ll still end up paying for it even though it never reaches you. A spike in your home water bills that doesn’t match your usage is a major red light that there’s a water line problem.
  • Water discoloration: You’re familiar with the rust discoloration that comes from faucets after you’ve been away from the house for a few weeks. If this discoloration pops up suddenly and doesn’t go away, you may have a corroded water line or one that’s broken.

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.
