The main water line for a home is essential for the overall plumbing system. Should you have issues with your Fife water line, you need to call plumbing professionals as soon as possible. Our technicians at Westview Plumbing can take a look to determine if a repair or replacement is best. However, knowing when the line should get looked at might be tricky – which is where we can help!
There are several factors we can keep you aware of that may tell you the water line to your property should get checked out:
Noisy Fixtures and Taps
The plumbing system in any property should always be silent. Should you notice banging in the pipes when the water is turned on, there could be an issue with the main water line. In some situations, this could be a severe problem involving more than one pipe within the plumbing system.
Outside Water Pooling
Another common sign will be water pooling outside around the area where your main water line comes in and connects to your home. Should there be unexplained puddles or lush green grass, it is time to call our plumbers right away for an assessment.
Sediment In Your Water
A fractured or broken water line will start to bring sediment into your taps. You may also start to notice discoloration or rust-tinged water. This is a sure sign that water line repair or replacement is imminent.
Water Pressure Issues
Once you have a drop in your water pressure, it might mean that roots have infiltrated the line. If you have a regulator to boost the water pressure and that is also not working, you could have a blockage that must get addressed as soon as possible.
