Water Main Break

Water Main Break

Oh no! If you’re reading this, you’ve probably had a water main break and you’re looking for a plumber to fix it fast with a water line replacement or repair. 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 waterline 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.
Call Five Star Plumbing Services 7 days a week at 410-836-0118.

I am pleased with their professionalism. Chris came out to estimate at least 5 plumbing repairs. He explained options in detail. Matt fixed 4 of the 5 issues in 1 quick day. (We opted to not have the 5th issue repaired.) Pricing was fair. I will seek there bid in the future!

Needed water shut off valve moved in HVAC closet. Matt arrived on time and gave me a quote. It was a little more than I anticipated but he showed me what needed to be done and I agreed. As it turned out, the old valve would not shut off properly and he installed two shut offs, one to handle water flow closer to the water tank and another which was more accessible to me which is what I needed. The work was done in 90 minutes and I had two great valves installed which seem to be working fine.

January 2018. Chris put in a new Water Supply Pipe, a new Pressure Control Valve at the supply point, and a new Bladder-type tank near the water heater. Stopped hammering. Did a great job, would highly recommend.

We had 5-Star do several plumbing jobs at our new house. They are reliable, punctual, and very helpful. They care about the quality of their work and followed up to make sure we were happy. The employees are friendly and talented, making them a pleasure to work with. We'll certainly by using them again.

I had the water pipe bringing water into my house break. Harford County turned the water off at midnight. Chris was by the next morning for a look and an estimate. He loaned me a washer hose and told me how to get water from my neighbor's hose bib (after permission, of course). The crew started work 2 days later and did a bang up job. The job took more copper pipe than was quoted and they stood by the estimate. I was very pleased with the attitude and work ethic of the plumbing crew on site. I would recommend 5 star without reservation

I had a polybutylene pipe replaced in my Abingdon, MD home. The job was done professionally and the workers were very neat. They put my yard back together so well I could barely tell that they were there. Everything went much better than I expected and I would highly recommend 5 Star Plumbing of Bel Air, MD.

Had a main water line leaking into the house Sunday night. After the County rep turned it off outside I called a few different companies to get an estimate on repairs. Chris and his crew won my business by being very professional and reasonably priced. Job was done very fast and you can’t even tell that they had to dig a trench in my front yard. I would definitely recommend 5 Star plumbing to anyone who needs plumbing services.

The company replaced the water supply line from the meter pit to the inside of our home. This was a trench- less installment and our concrete driveway was not cut or broken. The work was completed as promised and "to code". All permits and inspections were also completed as promised. In February, Five Star Plumbing replaced our water heater promptly and on our schedule after reviewing with us several options for heater capacity and warranty lengths. Again, we were pleased with the installation and the professionalism of all staff at the company.

I contacted 5 Star Plumbing about my water heater that was leaking in my basement 5 minutes before close of business on a Friday night. Chris, the owner, sent a tech out that night who quickly stopped the leak and ordered a replacement water heater that was installed the next day. The tech was polite and efficient and cleaned everything up and somehow removed the old water heater without getting water anywhere on the way out the door. 5 Star Plumbing made an unexpected repair much more bearable - very grateful!!

It is somewhat unusual for a company's title to reflect its service. These guys have my five star rating. Without going into details about what they had to do and the manner in which they did it, I recommend them to anyone with a plumbing problem or concern.

I called them at 8am on a Monday Morning due to an issue that happened over the weekend. Not only did they answer the phone but were able to give me a reliable time frame for arrival. He said he would be there between noon and 2pm and he showed up at 1pm. He was fast and courteous and had the job completed quite quickly. I will definitely call him next time I have a need.

My failing hot water heater came from Home Depot and the heater itself was covered under warranty. Their contractor wanted $450 to replace it for labor delivery and removal. They came out and said that they could not do the job because they had to lift the empty hot water heater out.I picked up the new water heater from Home Depot and called 5 Star, they were the only ones who answered, spoke to Portia at the office who was very friendly, and they were out here within 18 hours of the call which was not an emergency.Excellent service, no issues with the install, very professional and they were cheaper! They also removed the old heater.Highly recommeded

A lifesaver during a very bad time to have plumbing problems! After a storm of this size, it meant a lot to me that these guys could fit me into the schedule on such short notice and stop a small (but potentially serious) problem from becoming a whole lot worse. THANK YOU!
