Your existing pipe is typically made of copper, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), ductile iron, galvanized steel, or polybutylene (AKA poly-blue, poly or big blue). Copper HDPE and ductile iron have proven to be reliable pipes for this purpose. Galvanized piping, which is no longer installed in this application, has a life expectancy of 50 – 70 years, but also deteriorates over time reducing water pressure and flow rate. Polybutylene piping has proven to be a failure and needs to be replaced
You may not even notice when a main water line from the street begins to leak. You could see or feel more dampness in the grass, or wonder why there’s water on the sidewalk, but until it turns into something more, it may go unnoticed for quite some time. If you experience a discoloration of your water, a drop in water pressure, or a constantly wet location in your yard, your water line may be damaged. Or, a higher than normal water bill could also be an indication of a leak that has gone undetected.
Water leaking from a high-pressure water line can create a sink hole from underground erosion. This type of leak can cause permanent damage, rob areas of enormous quantities of potable water required for drinking, cooking, bathing and cleaning along with other water supply requirements from your service pipes leaking under the ground surface.
