Common Water Line Issues

The water line that brings fresh water to your home is an essential part of your plumbing system. It’s what allows you to enjoy hot showers, cook, clean, and do an array of other day-to-day tasks. The most important thing that ensures a smooth and continuous flow of water is your house’s main water line. Sometimes problems can occur with your property’s main water line and disrupt your water supply. Take a look at some of the most common water line issues and what you can do to fix them.

Noisy Pipes

Hearing unusual noises from your pipes? It can be caused by your home’s water line. Although noisy pipes are not a huge problem, if left untreated, they can turn into a bigger problem. The most common cause of noisy pipes is air. When air enters the water line, it creates banging and vibrating sounds within the pipes. The easiest way to resolve this problem is to completely drain the water line. 


Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure is never fun. There are numerous possible reasons for low water pressure. It can be due to a leak, a clog, sediment buildup, or something completely different. Figuring out the cause of your low water pressure problems is the first step to resolving it. It can be hard to determine the true cause of low water pressure, so it’s best to have a professional plumber come look at your plumbing system.



Leaks can occur anywhere in the water line for multiple reasons. Pipe corrosion and loose jolts are some of the most common reasons for leaks in pipes. If you suspect you have a leak, have your pipes repaired by a professional MD plumber. The longer you delay having leaky pipes repaired, the more problems it can cause.


Burst Pipes

Burst pipes are a huge plumbing problem. Multiple things can cause burst pipes, such as freezing, tree root encroachment, and high water pressure. When your pipes burst, it can end up sending gallons of water onto the floor, and damaging walls, floors, and ceilings. The only way to resolve this problem is to have an emergency plumber replace your busted pipes immediately.
