Signs Your Main Line Needs Repair

3 Mountains Plumbing has been in the business of replacing water service lines in Portland for well over a decade. We are experienced and licensed journeymen plumbers who know how to get the job done right—the first time.

What Are Water Main Lines?

Water main lines (or, water service lines) are exactly that—main lines in which all of the water accessible inside your home is carried. In Portland, water main lines run from the water meter (usually on the sidewalk) to the home. Longer distances typically mean more piping joints and an increased likelihood of corrosion, decay, and eventual pipe failure.

Signs of Water Service Problems?

Fortunately, there are several tell-tale signs that your home is suffering from a water main break. These include:

  • Unusually high Portland water bill
  • Spinning water meter when all water is turned off
  • Visible water leakage or puddles
  • Collapsed ground or sidewalks
  • Lack of, or decreasing water pressure
