When an underground main water line breaks or springs a leak, it can be hard to know about it because it is hidden and may not obviously affect your water supply. Watch for these telltale signs of a water line break and get it fixed before the problem gets worse.

Low Water Pressure

When your water pressure lowers significantly for no obvious reason, you may have a break in your water line. If a water line breaks or leaks, a lot of water will flow out of the break, resulting in a lower volume of water coming out of your taps. There are other potential causes of low water pressure too, though, so it’s important to have your system inspected to identify the exact cause.

Unexplained Wet Spots & Green Patches in the Yard

If you notice strange soggy spots in your yard or patches where the grass is much greener than the rest of your lawn, you may have a leak in your water line. This is because water seeping out of your water line can come up to the surface of your yard to create wet spots, and/or it may provide your lawn with extra watering that makes it particularly lush in certain areas.

An Unexplained Increase in Your Water Bill

Have you noticed a strange spike in your water bill recently? This could be caused by a broken water line. When you have a leak in your water line, you might be losing a significant amount of water through it. Even though that water is going to waste, you’ll still have to pay for it. If you notice a higher number on your bill without an increased usage in your household, you likely have a leak somewhere.

Discoloured or Cloudy Water

Discoloured water could be the result of rust or dirt getting into your water through a break in the line. If your water looks unusual, call a professional right away to inspect and fix the problem. Discoloured water could be a health risk, so make sure to call a reliable plumber quickly.
