Home » Plumbing » Water Leak Detection » Main Water Line
Do you happen to know what the most important part of your plumbing system is? It’s your water line, ironically probably one of the parts of your system that you don’t think about too often. The main water line may not be conspicuous, but it is vital to the continued operation of the rest of your plumbing system. All water that flows into your home must first pass through the water line, whether you’re getting your water from the city in which you live, or from a well. If the water line is in trouble, it will have nasty ripple effects throughout the rest of your plumbing system. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your water line is properly protected and maintained.

When to Install a New Water Line
There are really only two times when it is necessary to install an entirely new water line. The first is when you’re building an entirely new plumbing system, probably for a new home. We can take care of that for you, if that’s what you need. The second is when the current waterline is so old, damaged, worn out, or all of the above that it can no longer function with simple spot repairs.
When to Repair or Replace Your Water Line
It can be difficult to tell when it’s time to replace an old water line. After all, these things are designed to last for decades. Typically, old age is only used as a reason to replace the water line after a professional inspection has confirmed the presence of other problems. Frequent leaks might be one reason to replace a water line, if constantly repairing them has done nothing to stem the tide.
Tree root infestations, which are much more common than you might think, are also sometimes reason to replace the line if they cannot be sufficiently cut back. Perhaps the biggest reason to replace your water line as soon as possible, though, is if it’s made of lead. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of water lines that are made of the toxic metal. So, if you aren’t sure if your water line is made of lead or not, have a professional examine it and replace it immediately if it is. It’s a health and safety concern, at that point.
We Can Maintain and Repair Your Water Line in Jackson, MS
Water lines are susceptible to similar problems as other plumbing systems, like leaks and blockages. They’re also frequently the target of tree roots, as we mentioned above. The best way to defend against these issues is to have your water line inspected at least once every couple of years, so that any problems can be dealt with quickly. This will ensure that your water line will stay as healthy as possible, saving you money and frustration in the long run. Contact Environment Masters, Inc. today to schedule an appointment.
