Have you noticed an unexplained increase in your water bills and a decrease in water pressure? Are there squishy, muddy spots or standing water in your yard and it hasn’t rained? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could have a leaking water line. A leaking underground water pipe is a serious problem that can result in high water bills, and when left unchecked, a broken water line can result in sinkholes and erosion, especially around your foundation. As the water collects outside of your home, the pressure could result in the water leaking into your home, which compounds the damage and expense. Don’t let this happen! The plumbers at Calhoun have decades of experience in finding and fixing leaking water pipes. Give us a call if you suspect you’re having a problem.
In addition to higher water bills and low water pressure, other signs of a leaking pipe are rusty-tinged water coming out of the faucets or a gurgling or hissing coming from a spot in your yard. So, the first step in correcting the problem is detecting the leak. You can do this yourself by conducting a walk-through of your yard or you can contact our team to assess the situation. Once the spot of the leak is isolated, then it’s time for some excavation. The experienced pros at Calhoun Plumbing can help you determine what needs to be replaced or repaired.
Fixing the problem usually requires repair or complete replacement of the pipe. If it’s a copper pipe, the damaged section will be removed and a new section of replacement pipe will be fitted and soldered to the old pipe. The process is the same for PVC pipe, although sealant will be used instead of soldering. Given the complexity of these repairs and the potential for a reoccurrence, these are repairs that are really best left to the hands of experienced professionals. Contact our team or call 614-444-1995 to schedule a time for one of our licensed plumbers to come out and assess your situation.
