The main water line is as important as it sounds — it’s a single line that brings water in from the main municipal supply and into your home or business. Everything you use water for is dependent on this pipe functioning properly and doing its job.
Water lines are durable and often last at least 20 years — and even as long as 100 years! So, it’s certainly plausible that a homeowner would never have reason to call a plumber about their water line.
Water line access is most typically found in warm indoor areas to prevent freezing. Common locations include the basement, garage, and crawl spaces .
Top Notch Plumbing and Drain, LLC serves the people of Gilbert and the East Valley with reliable water line services. Call us as soon as you see the warning signs of damage.

Six Warning Signs You May Need Water Line Repair
1. Your Water Bill Keeps Going Up
When your water bill goes up without explanation, that usually means a leak, and that leak could be in the main water line. Because the water line supplies the entire house, even small leaks can add up to substantial extra costs over time.
2. Contaminated Water
If the water line cracks, it’s possible that dirt and other debris can work their way into your water supply. Have you noticed that your drinking water has been cloudy or that it seems to have a stench to it? Anything that impacts the color or smell of your water could be coming from the main water line.
This is a significant health concern. Contaminated water has bacteria in it, and this must be addressed as soon as possible.
3. Failing Water Pressure
When the water line starts to falter, a natural consequence is that there is less water coming out of your shower head. It’s possible that water line damage may be involved.
It’s also possible that the damage could be with different pipes. Is water pressure failing in just one location or is it a problem around the house? If it’s just the shower, the repair needs might be localized. If it’s the shower, along with the water tap pouring slowly and the water sprinklers running poorly, then the issue could be with the main water line .
We’ve already noted that damage to the water line can allow the entry of dirt and debris. If you aren’t seeing contaminated water, you might still be experiencing the effects of a clogged pipe. A good sign would be a sink or bathtub that doesn’t properly drain. Again, if it’s just in one location, it might be the pipes local to that area of the house. If it’s everywhere, the main water line needs to be looked at.
5. Water Pooling
Perhaps one area of your lawn is a nice, lush green, while other parts look like they’ve been scorched. A plausible explanation is that the water line has started to malfunction.
6. The Critters Are Coming
Rats and rodents are drawn to moisture and humidity, and if your water line is leaking, they’ll be attracted to your lawn. The arrival of critters doesn’t automatically mean you have a water line problem or any other type of plumbing problem. But if you’ve already noticed some of the other symptoms of water line issues, the presence of rats and rodents can additional confirmation.
