What Causes a Water Main Leak?
Most residential and commercial property owners will encounter an emergency plumbing problem with their water main at some point. A water main leak is typically caused by external factors related to your environment, including:
- Moisture, humidity, and other weather events
- Natural settling of the ground or your foundation
- Heavy construction nearby that causes a shift in the ground
Aside from environmental factors, your water line can also be accidentally damaged by landscaping work, remodeling, or construction work on your property. Water main damage is often hard to detect because it is hidden in your walls or underground, but the sound of water running when your fixtures are off is a telltale sign of a leak.
Detecting a Leak in Your Water Main
A common misconception is that you will lose water pressure when a leak is present. In fact, it is very rare that water pressure is lost except in extreme circumstances. It is much more likely that you hear the hiss of water running, or you may notice wet spots around your property, lush spots in your grass, or the foul smell of mold and mildew.
The professionals at The Plumber's Plumber can also use modern trenchless leak detection technology to quickly and accurately find the source of your leak. Pinpointing your leak will allow a plumber in Fort Myers, FL, and nearby areas to fix the problem confidently the first time.
Repairing Your Leaking Water Main
After identifying the location and severity of your leak, our technician can use one of many techniques to repair or replace the damaged pipe. Our minimally-invasive trenchless plumbing repairs are the most common approach because they don't require extensive digging on your property. A cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining involves resurfacing your water line with epoxy resin and a durable sleeve of material. The epoxy cures quickly and creates a smooth, long-lasting surface inside your pipe to avoid replacement.
The entire inspection and repair process can be completed from an existing access point to alleviate the stress and reconstruction costs associated with traditional excavations. Without disrupting your property, your plumbing repairs are completed in one to two days and you'll save a significant amount of money in reconstruction.
