Water Line Repair
Your home’s water line is what connects your property to the municipal water supply, providing you with clean, safe drinking water. Most homes in Prescott, AZ, are supplied by just one water line that feeds every faucet in the house. If this line starts leaking or is otherwise damaged, you may have issues with the water supply to every room.
At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we offer water line repair services to help you get your home’s water supply back to normal. Our professional plumbers will inspect your home’s water supply and advise you on how to fix the problem in the most cost-effective way.
What Are Some Common Signs of a Damaged Water Line?
Your home may need a water line repair if you’re experiencing any of the following issues:
- Discolored water is coming from all of your faucets
- Loss of water pressure from your cold water taps
- Wet patches or unexplained pools of water in your yard
Water lines run underground, and it’s easy for them to get damaged by tree roots, shifting ground, or through the process of expanding and contracting as the temperature changes. Even a small crack is enough to cause a leak, and once the pipes have degraded enough for a small leak to appear, larger leaks are likely to occur in the near future.
Leaks aren’t the only issue homeowners might encounter with their water lines. The water in Prescott and the surrounding areas is hard, which means it contains a lot of minerals. These minerals can form a scale on the inside of the pipes. A small amount of scale is to be expected, but over longer periods, it’s possible for so much scale to build up that it impairs the flow of water through the pipe. In addition, pieces of the scale may break away and cause the water to take on a cloudy or discolored appearance.
Water Line Repairs in Prescott, AZ
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing offers water line repair and installation services in Prescott, Flagstaff, and Sedona. Our licensed plumbers are trained in the use of sophisticated diagnostic equipment and can perform non-invasive inspections of your water pipes.
We use high-tech imaging equipment to inspect your water line and locate even the smallest leaks without having to dig up your yard. Once we’ve assessed the condition of your water line, we can offer advice about whether you should repair the line or whether a replacement would be a better option.
In the case of a small leak in an otherwise intact and relatively clean line, we may be able to seal the leak without too much disruption. If the line is severely clogged, is broken due to shifting ground, or has suffered extensive tree root damage, we may need to dig up part of the line to conduct the repair.
When our plumbers make a recommendation, they’ll provide you with an itemized estimate and an explanation of the work they’re planning, what it involves and how long they expect it to take. We aim to be as transparent as possible throughout the whole process so you know what you’re paying for and what to expect.
When to Consider Water Line Replacement
If your existing water line has collapsed, there are tree roots penetrating it in several locations, or the line is severely clogged by scale build-up, it may be wise to consider replacing it completely.
If you’re extending your property, perhaps with a small cottage for your parents to live in or a new self-contained wing to rent out as an Airbnb, adding a second water line with a separate meter is worth thinking about. Some very large homes have more than one water line simply to overcome the issue of water pressure if multiple faucets are in use at once.
Our plumbers can carry out water line replacement or installation for you and have all of the tools and equipment required to complete the job safely and in compliance with local regulations.
