Water Line Services in St. Louis, MO
The water line is the main line feeding water into your plumbing from the municipal water sources here in St. Louis, MO. It also includes individual pipes in your home that deliver water to your various outlets, including outside hose faucets, frozen and burst pipes, laundry lines and lines for ice makers in your refrigerator. Water lines can encounter clogs, leaks and other problems, and when they do, you need to get them fixed the right way.
That’s where we come in. Whether it’s a problem with your main water line or an issue with smaller water lines in your home, Performance Plumbing can perform quality installation, repair, maintenance and replacement services on the water lines throughout your St. Louis, MO home. Contact our trained team today to get the process started.
Watch for Signs and Troubleshoot
You can usually spot the signs of a problem with your water line fairly easily. Out–of–place dripping or running water sounds, a lack of water pressure from your outlets, an unexpected spike in water bills, all can indicate a substantial problem with your water piping, requiring a trained professional to diagnose and solve.
Never attempt to address such issues yourself. Without proper training, you’ll just make the issue worse. Instead, get to the main water valve in your home and turn it off. That will stop the flow of water from the outlet and halt the spread of damage. Every family member in your St. Louis, MO home should know where the main valve is and how to use it. Once that happens, call in a plumbing service and arrange for repairs as quickly as possible.
Winter Is a Particularly Tough Time
Winter can be especially hard on the water lines, especially outside hose faucets. When the water freezes in the pipes, it restricts the flow through them, reducing flow to a trickle or shutting it down completely. Even worse, ice expands as it freezes: increasing the pressure on your pipes and raising the probability of the pipes bursting. Burst pipe can be very expensive to replace or repair, and can cause considerable damage to parts of your home before they are caught.
The solution is to shut off the water in problematic areas such as outside water piping, that you won’t be using over the winter anyways. Then contact a trained plumber and enquire about any preventive measures you might be able to take, such as insulating pipes that might be in vulnerable parts of the home.
Don’t Forget Specialty Hoses
Specialty hoses include your laundry line, ice maker line and other bits of water piping that feed into a specific appliance. Generally speaking, you should contact a plumber whenever one of these lines runs into trouble. Otherwise, you won’t be able to make use of the outlets they affect properly.
Luckily, our trained team is on call and ready to go when your specialty lines run into problems. Whether it’s a leak, a clog or something more substantial, we have the skills you need to fix the problem and restore your appliances and outlets to their optimum shape.
