Waterline replacement is common for Fort Worth homeowners because materials fail with age, and changing soil conditions compromises underground pipes. If you have a leaking or burst main water line, it requires immediate help from an experienced residential plumber. At Schrader Plumbing, we have over 20 years of serving the residents of Fort Worth with honest and affordable service.
Homeowners may need to repair a leaking copper pipe in their home, but when it’s inside of a wall, or under a pier and beam or slab foundation, it’s difficult to access, and requires the proper tools for repair. Our licensed plumbers carry all the latest equipment and tools to properly assess and repair water line breaks and leaky pipes in your home.
If you’re experiencing plumbing problems, it may not be an individual pipe that’s the cause; it may be your main water line. Here are the most common signs that indicate you have issues with your main water line.
If you notice any of the above symptoms, call a trusted residential plumber like Schrader Plumbing for an evaluation.
If you believe you have a water leak, due to hearing water running, or the meter spinning when all faucets are turned off, a test is required to move further. We use various means of testing, including gauges to find out if you truly have a water leak.
Once the test has revealed a water leak, the next phase is to locate it. Water leaks can be tricky, as you may hear it in one place, but it’s actually elsewhere. Our trained plumbers have the necessary training and experience to find out where the leak is coming from, whether under your slab or pier and beam foundation, or in a wall.
Once the water line is located, the plumber must access it, whether it be behind a sheetrock wall or slab foundation. Once we have accessed the pipe, it can be repaired.
Water line repair may not require much more than digging up a small area and patching an existing pipe, or in some cases, a complete line replacement may be needed. If a replacement is the case, we have backhoes and trenchers available, and of course, we always take great care in leaving your home and yard the way we found it, or as close as possible. We tie into the city plumbing and ensure the job is done right!
