Water Lines

Massapequa Water Line Replacement & Repair

The water line is fundamental to the plumbing system. It’s what brings water from the municipal system into our homes. Every other pipe we have is dependent on a functioning water line. When there’s damage or even a hint of damage, it’s important to have a professional take a look as soon as possible. From our home office in Massapequa, Chivalry Plumbing & Heating also serves homeowners in Seaford, Wantagh, and beyond. 

Call our Massapequa water line plumbers at (516) 614-3398, where we’re available 24/7 and offer emergency service. You can also fill out our online form to set up an appointment.

The Signs of Water Line Damage

Fast action may be able to mitigate more expensive repairs. Homeowners who know the red flags to watch for can get our team out there in a timely manner. Here are four common signs that may indicate water line damage:

  • A Wet Floor: Leaking water lines can cause moisture to seep through floors and walls, leading to visible signs of dampness. The floor being wet without explanation is often a dead giveaway that there’s a plumbing problem. The water line is a likely culprit. 
  • Soggy Grass: The water line, much like the sewer line, which serves the opposite function of carrying water out of the home, runs underground. This means leaks can saturate the soil, causing the ground to become excessively wet.
  • Discolored Water: Discoloration is often caused by rust or sediment from deteriorating pipes. The presence of contaminants in the water supply can result in health risks, so it's important to have the water line inspected and repaired if discoloration occurs.
  • Rust and Corrosion: Pipes may develop rust or corrosion due to factors like age, moisture, or chemical reactions. These signs suggest that the pipes may be weakened or deteriorating, which can eventually lead to leaks or bursts. 

If you observe any of these signs of water line damage, give us a call. We can assess the situation and recommend a course of action, whether that be repair work or perhaps the installation of a new water line. 

How Often Should Water Lines Be Replaced? 

The durability of your water line will depend on the material it was made with. A galvanized steel water line might need to be replaced every 20 years, although, with proper maintenance and care, it can still last up to 50 years. Brass should last you at least 40 years and perhaps longer. Copper’s lifespan is usually about 50 years. 

Trenchless Water Line Replacement

Our Massapequa water line technicians offer trenchless replacement, an affordable and safer alternative to traditional methods that force you to dig up your yard.

We begin the process by simply digging two small holes—one where the waterline begins and another where it ends. A new pipe will be placed into the existing pipe, and a tool will help burst the old pipe so it can be completely replaced.

With the trenchless method, your property won't be damaged, and you can expect minimal to no disruption.

Call our office today at (516) 614-3398 to get repair service or to ask about a new installation.
