If you are experiencing problems with the water at your residence or business, there are some steps you can take to see if it is the water main before calling a plumber. To take care of the issue, contact the professional crew at All Valley Plumbing for water main line repair service in Edmonds.
The network of pipes that connect your plumbing to the public water source is known as a water main and it can be a complicated restoration project. If your building is older, the plumbing system is undoubtedly older, too, and should have routine maintenance service on a specific schedule to ensure normal operation. A complete replacement may be required to prevent building flooding and widespread damage someday.
Contrary to what most people believe, a leak in the water main does not usually cause loss of water pressure. A common indicator of a leak is rushing water or a thrumming noise in the pipes. You may also notice excessive water use or a soggy landscape.
You can check for a water main leak by switching off the meter regulator that is often found on one side of the building. Water will stop flowing when the dials stop moving. Next, empty the remaining water in the plumbing to be in no doubt that there is not a leak elsewhere. Finally, carefully listen to the pipe itself. It should be quiet. Continuing to hear water running means that there is a leak in the water main. Turn the water meter valve back on slowly to prevent damage to the pipes with quickly moving water.
