Call Five Star Plumbing Services now at 410-836-0118 for immediate service. We fix damaged water mains for homeowners and commercial clients throughout Baltimore County, Harford County, Cecil County and Howard County.

Water Line Replacement

Whether you’re talking about a water main break in your yard or at your business, it can be a disaster. Of course, the water main is the main water line into your home or business that connects to the public water system line, which is out in the street. If the break is on your property, you are responsible for repairs.

Five Star Plumbing Services has the longest warranty in the industry. We have a 10-year warranty on water service replacements.

 

If the break is in the street, report it to your Water Company or local public works department, and they’ll take care of it.

Signs of a Water Main Break

There are a number of signs that can indicate a water main break. Some are more obvious than others. They include:

  • Skyrocketing water bill
  • Sudden low water pressure
  • Discolored or dirty water
  • Unusual noises coming from your pipes or plumbing fixtures
  • Water that seeps or pools in your basement or crawl space, even in the driest of weather
  • Water that gushes or flows up from the ground
  • Sinking ground, driveway, sidewalks, parking lot or roadway
  • Unusually wet or soggy ground
  • Have polybutylene pipe (a pipe known to fail over time)

Once we have exposed the water line and seen the extent of the damage, as well as contributing factors such as corrosion, tree roots, etc. we can give you an estimate of repair costs, or suggest water line replacement.

Water Line Replacement

Depending on the extent of the damage, and how old your water line is, your plumber may recommend complete water line replacement. This is especially important if you have old pipes that are crumbling, or corroded. Repairing just one spot means there may be another leak just waiting to happen.

Water Line Repair

If you suspect you have a water main break, or there is clear evidence of a break, we may be able to perform water line repair. We won’t know the extent of the damage to your water line until our plumbers come out to your property.
