When It’s Time for Main Water Line Replacement
The main water line in your Westfield, IN home or place of business was made to last a long time, but unfortunately, a water line can fail eventually. They can crack, break, or wear out from corrosion. When that happens, you’ll need an expert, professional plumbing company to address the problem. The first step should be an inspection via video camera to find out exactly what the problem is and where it’s located. One of the goals of the camera inspection will be to determine whether the main water line is actually in need of replacement or if it can be repaired.

MAIN WATER LINE REPLACEMENT VS. MAIN WATER LINE REPAIR
Naturally, 24-7 Plumbing won’t recommend you replace a main water line if repair is feasible and the more economical alternative. When making repairs, we’ll generally opt for trenchless water line repair. Trenchless means we don’t dig up the existing water line. That reduces cost and disruption for homes and commercial establishments. Instead, we use a pneumatic bladder to insert a flexible, resin-coated liner inside the pipe. When it hardens in place and the resin is cured, the liner patches holes and cracks, and that stops any leaking. Sadly, sometimes repair won’t yield the desired results, and then main water line replacement is the only answer.
SIGNS IT’S TIME FOR MAIN WATER LINE REPLACEMENT
The pipe is still leaking despite past repairs. This can be an indication that there’s really no salvaging it.
The pipe is badly damaged. We may see this if it’s quite old, extremely corroded, severely damaged by tree roots or some other intrusion, or burst when it froze during winter. Even in cases where it could be fixed, the likelihood of future problems can make main water line replacement the better option. We consider its age, material, and repair history when making this determination.
