Water Line Repair

When our licensed plumbers come to your home for water line repair, they use specialized video camera equipment to inspect your water line and identify the cause of your problem. This allows us to determine exactly what and where the problem is without having to dig up your entire yard.

Water lines can crack or break due to a number of causes. The most common reasons water lines need repair are:

  • Tree root infiltrations
  • Shifting or settling soil
  • Temperature changes as the ground freezes and warms up
  • Deterioration of the water line due to age or inferior materials

After we know the scope of the problem, we’ll fully explain your options for repair with upfront pricing. Our team will then work to complete your water line repair quickly and effectively to restore your water.

Signs You Have Tree Roots in Your Water Line

Tree root through pipeWhen dormant trees begin to grow again in the springtime, their roots seek out water sources and nutrients underground to help them flourish. If your water line or pipes have any weak spots, the roots will take advantage of the cracks and infiltrate them to reach the water inside. As the roots thrive within the pipe, they can create clogs, prevent proper water flow, and cause backups. Older homes and homes with large trees nearby are particularly susceptible. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms below, call Blind & Sons for an inspection immediately:

  1. Slow-flowing drains
  2. Blocked and collapsed pipes
  3. Bad odors inside and outside your home
  4. Sinkholes

Signs You Need Water Line Repair

Since your water line is where all of your water comes from, it’s arguably the most important component of your plumbing system. Unfortunately, it is completely hidden underground, so it can be hard to know when you have a water line issue. Any problem in your water line will have consequences that you should be able to notice, so be on the lookout for these signs that you need water line repair:

  • Plumbing issues in multiple fixtures – If your water line is broken or blocked, all of your toilets, sinks, showers, faucets, and plumbing appliances will have issues.
  • Excessive water in your yard – If you find puddles or soggy areas in your yard and you can’t figure out where they came from, your water line may be leaking under your yard.
  • Low water pressure – A blocked water line can cause your whole home’s water pressure to drop drastically.
  • High water bills – A slow leak from your water line can cause a spike in your water bill.
  • Murky or discolored water – Murky or discolored water could mean that dirt is entering your water line through a crack. It can also mean that your water line is corroded.

If you notice any of these signs, you may have a water line issue. Call Blind & Sons at (330) 753-7711 or contact us online for a water line inspection in Akron and Northeast Ohio. Our highly trained plumbers can handle any water line problem!

FAQs about Water Line Repair & Replacement

How long do water lines last?

Does homeowners insurance cover water line repair and replacement?

Every policy is different, but most homeowners insurance does not cover water line repair or replacement. In some cases, it does cover water damage to your home caused by a broken water line. Call your insurance company for specific details.
