Water Line Replacement in Denver
If your property is exhibiting signs of a damaged water line, there is a chance that the issue may have advanced beyond the ability to repair. In that case, you will have to replace your water line entirely.
The current standard for water lines is copper piping, which shows greater durability than previously used materials (unless installed in a district with a water supply containing corrosive material, in which case other options such as composite materials or plastic are considered). If your damaged water line is made of lead or galvanized steel, it cannot be repaired and will need to be replaced.
Water line replacement in Denver may seem like a daunting project, but we are well equipped to make the process as quick and easy as possible for you with great service and years of experience. There are many benefits to replacing a damaged or corroded water line, including:
- improved water pressure
- cleaner water
- lower water bills
What Does the Process Look Like?
Depending on the size and scope of the property as well as any obstacles to the laying of new pipe, the replacement process can vary. However, most water line replacements don’t take more than a few days, and we make sure to cause the absolute minimum disruption to your property possible.
What If the Leak Is Coming From the Water Main?
The water main is the principal water source in the area, typically owned and operated by the city and running beneath the streets. Your service line, or water line, is that which connects the water main to your house or business.
If you are experiencing the symptoms of a damaged water line and the damage is found to be on the water main, you are not financially responsible for the repair or replacement. However, if the damage is to your water line and not the water main, you are most likely financially responsible.
If the damage or break is found to come from your water line, don’t panic! Many homeowner’s insurance policies include coverage for repair or replacement of water lines. Contact your homeowner’s insurance agent to verify the details of your policy.
How to Prevent Damage to your Water Line
There are many ways to do your part to keep your water line working properly. Here are our top three:
- Prevent Clogged DrainsThe most commonly used drains are typically those in the kitchen and bathrooms. Never pour oil or grease into the sink, reduce your use of bath oils and other oily substances in your baths and showers, and avoid running hot showers in quick succession—this causes unnecessary strain on your plumbing.
- Constantly Check for LeaksBe aware of the warning signs! Always be on the lookout for abnormal moisture in your yard as well as leaks in your faucets and shower heads. You may also notice a higher than usual water bill.
- Insulate Your Pipes Against FreezingFrozen pipes are a huge danger to the health of your water line—the water inside will freeze and then expand, often causing pipes to burst. Insulate your indoor pipes, especially those in places prone to cold such as basements and crawl spaces. Additionally, run water from every valve in your house in a routine manner throughout the cold months to prevent freezing.
If you are experiencing signs of a broken or damaged water line, or just want to know more about your property’s piping system and how best to keep it in tip top shape, give us a call at Sewer Lines Only. Clean water supply is one of the most crucial parts of any home or business, and we’re dedicated to keeping yours running smoothly for years to come.
