What is a Water Service Line?
A water service line is a line that needs to be put in a house or in a building in order for it to have water.
This line is tapped in the water main where water is sourced into that specific area and directly to your home.
It’s a pretty simple definition but connecting a water service line is a challenging and messy job. This is the reason why repairing the system doesn’t just require any plumber, the Atlanta plumber should be an expert with line connections.
Repairing or replacing a water service line is not an easy job, depending on your situation and the amount of damage that was done, it may take a while to provide a solutions
So let’s dig in to learn more about Water Service Lines.
What To Know About Water Service Lines
Service lines are always bored deep: Your line can either be 2-4 feet below the surface, the reason for this is because the lines are prone to be moved if it’s close to the surface or if buried lightly. It needs to be deep in order to have consistency on the flow of water without any possible movements that will dislodge it.
It’s a very secure position that the only time that its integrity will be affected in any way is when a ground tremor would occur.
Repairing your line is not just about finding the problem in your home. It also means expert plumbers will have to check the tapped lines for the problem. It also means that they will have to dig until they find the leak and assess it on what the next course would be.
Service lines aren’t always replaced: To save money, our plumbers may cover the leak, if the line was dislodged, they may need to just plug it in again. If the leak is small and it can be covered, they will. But if the leak is too great, they may need to remove the line and replace it.
The bigger the job, the longer it will take to complete and the longer your water will be shut off.
