One of the most important parts of the sewer for a home is the water line that runs under the property and brings fresh water from the municipal system or a ground well. Without a water line, a home doesn’t have a working sewage system, and the most basic chores would become impossible. Taking care of a home’s water line is one of the most important tasks, and only sewer professionals can handle the work involved.

If you live in a home that is older than 1970, then you may have a water line made from outdated materials such as galvanized steel or even cast iron. (The last is a possibility for homes constructed before the Second World War.) Although these are tough materials, they will eventually suffer from corrosion and decay away. It’s wise to plan for a full replacement of this water line with copper piping. Copper is corrosion–resistant, lightweight, and has extra flexibility to help prevent damage due to ground shifts.
If you aren’t looking for water line replacement because of the age of the pipes, you should keep a watch for signs that the water line was leaking, root infiltration, or other damage.
Here are some indications that will tell you to call professional sewer experts for water line work:
A drop in water pressure throughout the house: If the water line starts to leak or becomes blocked, it will cause water pressure within the house to decline. If you see that water pressure has significantly weakened, and the issue isn’t coming from a problem with the municipal supply (check with a neighbor to see if they’re experiencing similar trouble) then you should immediately contact a sewer expert to inspect the water line.
Discoloration in the water: You’re probably familiar with the rusty–brown discoloration that comes from taps after you have returned from a long vacation. If you see this during a normal day, it can mean that the water line is suffering from heavy corrosion, or that dirt has started to enter through breaks.
High water bills: Loss of water through the breaks in the line will cause a significant spike in your monthly water bills. Never ignore a major change in your water costs for which you cannot account.
Damp spots on the lawn: When you notice wet and soggy places on your property that aren’t from rain or sprinklers, it might the fault of water seeping from a damaged water line below.
Seeping water from a leaking pipe can increase your water bill, cause poor water quality, and affect your pressure and volume. If you don’t fix the leak quickly, you risk a water line that bursts and causes flooding in your home.
If you know or are suspicious that you may have a leaking underground water pipe, you can call Pro Sewer Repair and we will come out for an inspection. From here, we will be able to determine the best course of action on how to fix the leak.
A water line that has been cut by accident can cause a significant amount of damage to your property, as well as pose a health risk to your family. The best way to fix a water line that has been cut is to hire a professional to repair it.
The cost will vary depending on the length of the line and the type of pipe being installed. There is also usually a fee for removing the damaged section of pipe and replacing it with a new one.
A broken water line can have serious consequences, including flooding your home, damaging your property, affecting your landscaping, increasing your water bill, water quality, pressure and volume of water.

I hired Pro Sewer Repair to replace my sewer line. Their estimate was much more reasonable then Pro Sewer fixed a large break in our sewer line where it joined the city mainline. They handled this large job effectively, cost-efficiently, and were great to work with. Jamie and Rob were awesome to work with on scheduling and responsive to questions, and the team (Jason and James) did a great job with the work. Would use them again and will recommend to friends.
