Need to Replace Your Water Main? Go Trenchless!

A damaged or broken water main is a problem that you have heard about. Your house is older, and you wonder if your property could be at risk.

These are all signs that may be telling you that your water main is damaged, and it’s time for a replacement before things get much worse, and therefore, more expensive and challenging to fix.

Need-to-knows on Replacing Your Water Main

So you’ve heard that replacing your water main is something you should consider, you may have seen some signs that it should be done, but you aren’t quite sure, you don’t know how it works, and you don’t know where to start. Well, start with us and a trenchless water main replacement! Here are “need-to-knows” on replacing your water main, and how JJ’s Plumbing takes care of the job.

First off, why replace your water main?

Your water main may use polybutyelene piping. If this is true, you will want to replace your water main before anything happens. Polybutyelene is a type of plastic resin that was used in water supply piping between the late 70s and mid-90s. If your house was built during this time, chances are, you have polybutyelene piping. So why repair it? Oxidants in water supplies, like chlorine, react with polybutyelene piping, which can cause them to flake and become weak/brittle. The result can be thin cracks in the piping, which reduce the strength of the water main. The piping system can end up failing without any warning, leading to flooding and damage to your household and property.

Another reason for replacing your water main is a burst or leak in the water line. It is best to replace the whole line, versus patching it.

Signs to look for when suspecting a water main leak

Here’s what to notice if you suspect a leak:

  • Your lawn is mushy or wet
  • There is running water from the ground
  • There is water seeping through concrete cracks/your foundation
  • There is water leaking into your basement.

Steps to take if you suspect a water main leak

Contact JJ’s Plumbing immediately, or call the city so the water can be turned off from the city shut off.

So… how does the process work?
