Water systems are used to distribute potable water to residents, institutions, and commercial properties within a community. Water systems include water mains, pipes, and distribution systems. We have extensive experience in repairing water system issues.
As your facility or home gets older, so does the exterior water system service line that delivers fresh water. Leaks and breaks in the water system are usually caused by aging of the pipe, corrosion, extreme weather, or the settling or shifting of the ground.
As the weather turns cold, water main breaks become more common. This is due to the expansion and contraction of the pipe material, weakening it. Pipe corrosion, soil conditions, age, and ground movement can also cause a water main break, creating unexpected problems for customers and motorists.
Common questions you can ask yourself to see what risk there is that an imminent water main failure potential:
- How old are your pipes?
- Do you have mature trees near your water service lines?
- Do you have clay soil?
- Have there been any warning signs of a problem?
- What are your pipes made of?
