Have you noticed an unexplained hike in your recent water bill? Or perhaps you’ve noticed wet spots beginning to appear on your lawn? Although these are two common signs of a leak in your home or commercial building’s main water supply line, there are other lesser-known signs that it may be time for a water supply replacement.
1. Water Discoloration
Does your water seem to have a different tint to it? Oftentimes, water with a rust-brown tint indicates that there may be a problem with your main water supply line. This could be due to a number of issues, including corrosion of pipes or soil entering through cracks.
2. High Water Bill
Does your recent water bill appear to be higher than usual or expected? Although this is not a flawless method, it can be one of the first signs that there is a leak in the main water supply and it may need replacement.
3. Low Water Pressure
Have you noticed a drop in water pressure throughout your home or business? This could potentially indicate that your main water supply has a leak and is losing water.
4. Wet Spots or Standing Water in Yard
Are wet spots or puddles of water appearing seemingly out of the blue in your yard? If that’s the case, there may be a serious leak in your main water supply and with nowhere to go, the water is seeping to the surface.
5. Old Main Water Supply Line
Are you worried because, although you may not be noticing these signs, you know your main water supply system is old? Having your water main inspected and serviced on a yearly basis can help you avoid issues before they begin.
