Water Main Repair in Monmouth and Ocean County NJ
Most plumbing problems, such as clogged drains and sewer lines, can be a huge inconvenience to both your property and wallet. A broken water main, however, is one of the worst! At AME, we offer services to properly maintain your water main to prevent future problems, and can repair or replace existing water mains.
The water main is the main pipe connecting a home to the public water supply. It generally is going to run from somewhere in the street or other public-access area, like an easement, to the home. The water main is completely underground, and, unlike plumbing problems in the home can be very difficult to detect. That is why homeowners need to be aware of potential signs of a water main problem.
Water Main Repair NJ
Have you experienced an unexpected increase in water usage? You should have some idea of how much water your family needs and aware of any special uses (filling up a swimming pool, a house full of houseguests, a lack of rain resulting in more frequent watering of the yard) that would increase that usage. It is also important to keep in mind that usage may vary tremendously by season. Is your usage the same as it was last year at the same time, and, if not, is there an explanation for any change? If the answer to either of those questions is no, it’s time to have an expert check out your water main.
Is your ground soggy? Another big warning sign of water main problems is an area of squishy ground or unexplained standing water in your yard. Leaks from a water main can cause localized flooding.
