Water Line Plumbing Macon GA
A water line or Main service line is a pipe that is the most important part of a homes plumbing system. The water line feeds cold water to a home where it can then be heated by a water heater and then distributed to kitchens, bathrooms, and utility rooms as needed. A meter is attached to the end of a water line and this is how the amount of water a home uses a month is calculated. A leaking or busted water line needs to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Today water lines are pipes made of PVC or PEX and are sturdy and last a very long time. Homes that were built from 1970 – 2000 were likely to have a water line made from polybutylene (PB) . Unfortunately these pipes were prone to leaks and bursting. If you have a poly water line it would be a good idea to replace it with PVC or PEX to keep your plumbing system running. When Macon GA Plumbing Co. is on a water line project one goal is to disturb the ground as little as possible. A thin trench will be dug to give us access to the pipe. After the repair or replacement is complete the trench will be covered back up and the site left clean and tidy.
