Common Signs Your Water Main is Leaking
Some of the common signs you will experience when you have a water main leak is lower water pressure, you will also see wet spots and puddles in your home or property. Listen for bubbling or whistling sounds coming from the toilet or sink. When experiencing a large break in the water main you will also see water in the street or your yard.
Causes of Water Main Leaks
One common reason you will see a water main leak or break is the age of the piping. The piping system itself could be too old. The lifespan of a water main depends on the materials it is built with. If the materials it is made out of is weak combined with the amount of stress a water main experiences on a daily basis then it could eventually cause a leak in the water main. Another reason for a water main leak is harsh weather conditions. Extreme cold temperatures cause large amounts of stress placed on the pipe and plumbing systems; over time this could cause the system to reach a breaking point and crack. Another common cause is water corrosion throughout the system. Corrosion or mineral deposits can build up over time as the water flows through the pipes. Steel pipes are especially susceptible to corrosion buildup; while this material has a long lifespan of approximately 20 years the material itself overtime has an easier buildup of corrosion.
