Cactus Air and Plumbing is proud to offer water main line replacement services in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Our experienced and certified plumbers have extensive knowledge and experience in replacing water line, so you can rest assured that your project will be completed with the highest quality of service.

Cactus Air and Plumbing recently replaced a broken water main line for a customer in Fountain Hills. The home was located on an incline, so we needed to reroute the water main line around the house. We used specialized equipment to dig a trench that would safely hold the new pipe while avoiding existing utility lines. We then laid a new length of piping that connected to the existing infrastructure on either side of the home. 

Once we had laid out all of the necessary piping, our plumbers inspected it for any potential problems or weak spots. They then filled the trench back up with soil before connecting it to the house’s plumbing system. After testing it for leaks and making sure there were no issues, we were able to turn the water back on for our customers and they could enjoy their new working water main line! 

What’s Involved In Replacing A Water Main Line?

There are two types of lines in your home - the main sewer line and the main water line. The former is responsible for carrying all wastewater out of your home, while the latter brings fresh water into your home for running the heater, shower, sinks, and hoses. Having a functional home is important to everyone, and when you have a problem with such a vital part of your plumbing system, it can completely throw off your daily routine. If left unchecked, a blocked pipe can prevent you from cooking, showering or even washing your hands. Replacing an entire section of piping is also very costly; if there's any way to avoid it, you should take that route instead.

Signs that you have a problem with your main water line

Most city or suburban residents' main water line is located underneath their front yard and connects to the local public water supply. A cracked pipe can cause fluid leakage, even if there are no visible signs of a problem. If you notice an uptick in your water bill but haven't been using it any more than usual, it might be time to call a professional.

Soggy, soft patches in the ground are a sign that your pipe might have burst, especially if there hasn’t been any recent rain. If the leak is large and powerful enough, you might even see spouts of muddy water bubbling up out of the ground. If left unchecked, the problem can make its way into your home and lead to inconveniences or mold growth.

If you observe a powerful stream of water, immediately call the utility company. They will come and shut off the line that's funneling into your property. In the meantime, to halt any more water from entering your home, turn off the building's supply using a standard meter key which can be found at most hardware stores. Do not attempt to dig the pipe by yourself as you could cause further destruction.
