Water Line Replacement

Indianapolis Water Line Replacement and Installation Services

Water lines are responsible for transporting fresh, clean water to your homes. Your water line is connected to the city’s main line, and kept separate from your sewer line to prevent contamination. While your water line is usually designed to last a long time, unforeseen circumstances can cause damage to your water line and affect your entire home.

As water lines age, they can become more vulnerable to the effects of mineral buildup, freezing and thawing, ground movement, water pressure, and even tree root intrusion. Damage to your water line can cause anything from discolored water to reduced water pressure. While these may not be alarming signs, they could quickly lead to the need for emergency replacement. Below are some indications that your water line needs to be repaired or replaced:

  • Low water pressure
  • Water discoloration
  • Sudden increase of your water bill
  • Lawn or yard puddles

How to Know If You Need to Replace or Repair Your Water Line?

Many homeowners are faced with this question every year when their water service line requires repair work. A typical homeowner will not know whether a partial repair, or replacing the entire water line is required. However, there are factors that determine whether you should repair or replace your water line.

  1. The material of your water line pipe —  Some materials can’t be repaired. Your plumber should tell you what material the water line is made of and what options you have based on that knowledge.
  2. The age of your water line — The useful life of a typical water service line just over 50 years. If your water line has issues and is over 50 years old then it most likely needs to be replaced.
  3. Previous repairs — Knowing if your water line has been worked on in the past is important. If an older water line is repaired it is more likely to break again.
  4. Price difference — A general rule of thumb is that if a repair costs 50% – or more than the cost of a replacement, then you should consider doing the replacement.

Troubleshooting A Broken Water Line

Holes or cracks may develop in a water line over time, usually as a result of external corrosion from the soil or frost. Water pipes are under pressure, so a break in the water line will cause water to flow out of the pipe and eventually to the surface level, whether that be the street, your front lawn, or the basement of your home. This could also lead to contaminated water in the home. It’s important to stop using appliances or drinking water when this occurs. There is usually a house shutoff valve that will turn off the flow of water through the main in an emergency. If your public utility doesn’t shut off the water flow first, you can locate the homeowner shut-off valve (next to your water meter) and turn the water flow off yourself. This is done with a water meter key. Once you shut off the water access to your home, you should call a plumber to come fix the problem.
