If you are having trouble with the water main line at your residence or business property, you can check it yourself before communicating with a plumber to take care of the issue. When there is a leak or fractured line, contact the skilled plumbers at All Valley Plumbing for water main line repair service in Granite Falls.
The system that links your plumbing to the community water source is a water main and it can be expensive to repair if something is wrong. Older buildings with aging pipes require more regular evaluation to ensure that they remain operational. A complete replacement may be necessary to keep from having a saturated building and widespread damage in the future.
A main water line leak does not often cause loss of water pressure and is an uncommon occurrence. A leak usually reveals itself with a vibrating sound or running water in the pipes. You may also have a higher than normal water bill or ponding in the yard.
You can perform a simple leak test yourself. Turn off the regulator on the water meter that is typically found on the side of the building. The water will stop running when the dials become still. Remove the rest of the water still in the plumbing and listen closely to the pipes. There should be no sound. If you hear water running, there is a leak in the water main. To restore normal water operation, slowly turn the valve back on. Rushing water can damage pipes if released too quickly.
