Water Line Repair
It only takes one small drop of water that is unseen for a period of time to do an incredible amount of damage. Leaks and faulty water lines are not something to be taken lightly.
The plumbing to your home or business takes place in two phases: 1) the exterior water lines that run through the ground, and 2) the interior water lines that run through your walls and other parts of the building.
It’s important that water line repair is done properly and carefully, especially if the repairs are exterior and require any kind of excavation. Not only are the tools and equipment essential for exterior water line repair, but sometimes permits are required, as well as coordination with other local principalities so as to avoid things like gas or power lines.

What if you are not 100% certain that you do, indeed have a water line (or multiple water lines) that are in need of repair?
Here are some ways you can find out!
- Unusually high water bills. While this does not absolutely mean you have a water line in need of repair, a sudden and unexplained increase in your water usage and bill can often be a strong indicator of a leak somewhere in the system.
- Damp or musty smells in the building. If you suddenly notice a damp or musty smell, especially after running water for extended periods of time, do not ignore this symptom! You very well may have water lines that are leaking within the walls.
- Discoloration of walls or ceilings. If you have a leak, even if it is a very small leak, moisture and condensation is occurring behind your walls, under your floors and/or above your ceilings. If you start to notice staining or discoloration, this can be a sign of damage below the surface.
- Dripping sounds. This may sound like a no-brainer, but oftentimes, homeowners and business owners will disregard dripping sounds and assume it’s no big deal. This can often lead to great damage over time.
