Important Notice on Water Mains & Leaks
It is common for a homeowner to first become aware of a water line leak after noticing a stream of water on the outside of the house, after experiencing low water pressure, or receiving a 3-day notice violation from DEP. There are several important factors to assist in determining if your pipe is leaking, where the leak is coming from and whether the leak is from your pipe or a neighbors pipe. If you currently have a damaged lead or galvanized water main, there is only one option in resolving your issue. It is 100% illegal to make a repair on a lead or galvanized pipe; it is also very risky as an old pipe becomes very brittle over time. Attempting to repair a lead pipe may turn into what should be a quick repair, into a large and potentially costly emergency.
Water Main Replacement Cost
There are several factors used when estimating the cost of a water line replacement. The primary factors used are:
- Size of the new pipe.
- Distance from the house to the city water main.
- When the city roadway was most recently paved.
- If a new tap installation is required.
