A major leak is usually evidenced by an immediate loss of water pressure. Unfortunately, the signs of a failing waterline can be subtle. At Flo-Rite Plumbing, Inc., the professionals are ready to handle big or small plumbing issues in Kalispell, MT, and the surrounding areas. Here, they explain which signs indicate you need to schedule waterline repairs.
How to Tell You Need Waterline Repairs
1. Discolored Water
The water that comes out of your faucets should be clear. If it’s brown or has a rusty tint to it, there might be something wrong with your piping. The culprit could be corrosion, but it’s also possible that dirt and debris are seeping into your water supply through cracks in your pipes. Corroded or cracked pipes must be replaced if you want clean water.
2. Soggy Lawn
Do you notice wet spots on your lawn even though it hasn’t been raining? Your plumbing is likely at fault. Minor cracks in your pipes won’t always affect the water pressure in your house. However, the water leaks add up over time and can create puddles of standing water in your yard or near your home.
3. Increased Water Bill
If your current water bill is higher than last month’s invoice, you probably need waterline repairs. A higher water bill that’s not related to an increase in water usage indicates there is a leak in your system. By the time you notice it on your bill, there will likely be either a large wet area in your yard or water damage in or near your home. If you can’t find the source of the leak, call a plumbing expert.
