When you ask, how much should it cost to replace the main water line?
There are several factors to consider when coming up with a price. It depends on how far your home is from the main line, the cost of pipes, the labor, trees in your yard, whether or not you have a sprinkler system and any other underground utilities there may be. It won’t hurt to get a couple of estimates but keep in mind that cheaper is not better. You get what you pay for. You may get a cheaper estimate but it doesn’t mean you will get the very best work done.
Water Supply Line
Water is a vital resource in any modern home. It is important to keep all of the water lines in good condition to prevent leaks. Proper maintenance of all of the plumbing will ensure the house will not flood as a result of leaks, and will also lengthen the life of the water supply lines, which will save you money in the long term. For water lines replacement and repair, professional contractors will be needed. They are able to carry out the work on both commercial and residential properties. They can replace the old, corroded pipes with ones made from modern, safer materials, repair leaks and improve the pressure of the water entering your property. Any old lead pipes should be replaced with new copper pipes, and a professional plumber will be able to do this quickly and easily. It is best if this is done before the situation with water line deteriorates and water begins to leak around the foundation of the house.
Rerouting or replacing water lines
Homeowners often try rerouting and replacing water lines themselves, but it often becomes a problem because there are issues that can only be fixed by an experienced plumber. A water line professional will be able to replace rusted, cracked or lead pipes, whether underground or in your house. There are several materials that can be used for underground water lines, with copper and PVC being the most popular. Ensuring your water lines are in good condition and made from modern materials will also add to the value of your property, whereas leaks and damaged lines will detract from the value. If you have leaks or low water pressure, then it is a good idea to have the lines from the water mains to your house replaced. This can now be done using “no-dig” technology, so you will not need to worry about repairing your driveway or other areas of your property after the water line work has been done.
A new, undamaged pipe will create higher water pressure within your property, and the replacement work does not take long to carry out, with a minimum of disruption. However, if the original water lines were not installed deep enough underground, then a new line will need to be positioned further underground to ensure that it will not freeze in the winter and potentially crack or let the water through. A water line professional will also be able to replace damaged pipes within your property. These are usually located either within the walls or the floor; pipes under the floors are easier to access and therefore cheaper to repair or replace. An experienced Santos plumber will check the integrity of all joints and connections between pipes, ensuring that there are no leaks and the water pressure is sufficient before the water line job is completed.
