If you notice that your water bill has increased after installing new appliances or you had a disaster in the front lawn, this might be the problem.
Here are the three major reasons:
The low pressure is usually just an issue with water flow. A small-diameter mainline and meter can cause problems throughout the home, but replacing them will fix most issues caused by high or reduced pressures in your plumbing system.
There are a variety of reasons why your pressure might be low, such as an interrupted supply pipe. If you notice that there is less water coming out but the meter shows constant flow or an increase in your water bill, then it could mean you have a leak -in which case we recommend calling for professional assistance immediately!
Flooding can be an incredibly destructive force, and the cause might vary from corroded fitting to root damage or pipe freezing. Once a water pipe is compromised it will begin leaking as soon as you start noticing moisture around your home’s foundation, we recommend you contact a professional
The process for a water line excavation is identical to a sewer line excavation which we talked about in The Process of a Sewer Line Excavation. An open cut trench is the most common type of evacuation for lateral sewer connections.
This type of excavation cuts directly down over each pipe (or location for new pipe), allowing it to be exposed for inspection and replacement or repair. Depending on the area to be excavated, this can be as simple as backfilling and covering it with sod. In more challenging projects, you may need to cut concrete and then refilled with compacted stone or sand to avoid settling.
The cost factors for excavation depend on a few different things. The more complicated an issue becomes, the higher costs will be and there’s no way around that because it takes time to get everything done right. On the other hand, if the issue lives on city property, you may end up with lower expenses.
The water service lateral is the connection from your city’s main supply to where it will be delivering drinking water on site. Your county might also have their own rules about who owns what, but in most cases, any defects or damages off of property are considered public works project responsibility and funded by taxpayers there instead of you!
Earth is fairly easy to move when the trench has been dug. However, large structural barriers such as sidewalks and foundation slabs will need removal or cut away in order for you to get access to pipes that are being replaced onsite at your home’s construction site – these obstacles must also be repaired before they can resume their original position after work hours end! These factors can impact the cost.
Many of these pipes have been in the ground for decades. This means nature has had a lot of time to move in. Tree roots can be an obstacle and they are also a source of damaged water main lines which need to be replaced.
