Why do I need to repair or replace my water main line?
Water main lines are changed most often for these reasons:
- The water line is leaking or a product used in the line isn’t performing up to par. A common product that fails are plastic pipe fittings. We see this a lot--make sure that your plumbing contractor uses brass fittings instead of plastic! It’s simply the best choice for the Vancouver, BC area; it’s a much better quality and does not crack.
- There is an obstruction in the line or it is broken. Common obstructions include roots and build-up in the drains. The city of Vancouver, BC flushes water main lines periodically to help rid them of this build-up and sediment.
- You want to boost the volume of water coming into your home, particularly if your galvanized piping is virtually rusted shut. Older water main lines tend to be made of lead and galvanized pipes that are particularly prone to mineral deposits and rust that accumulate inside the pipes and cut down on water flow.
- You want to take care of future water line problems and proactively make repairs and replacements before problems get bigger. We can install new water main line pipes or simply repair existing lines in good condition---whatever is right for your specific needs!
