Water lines are essential lifelines that keep Santa Monica homes functioning smoothly. These hidden plumbing networks of pipes ensure a constant and clean water supply for daily needs, from drinking and cooking to bathing and cleaning. Properly installed and maintained water lines guarantee reliable access to potable water, supporting the health and well-being of residents. In a region where water conservation is paramount, efficient water lines also contribute to sustainable practices by minimizing wastage.
Our plumbers at Safe Gas Services Inc. know how to repair and replace water lines to provide you with a dependable supply of fresh, clean water.
How Water Lines Are Installed
A water line is a pipe that carries water from the main to the building's water supply. Water lines are usually made of copper or PVC, although other materials are sometimes used for specific applications. The type of pipe used for a water line depends on the water pressure and the amount of water that needs to be carried to the building.
A water line is usually installed by digging a trench from the water main in the street to the building. The trench is then covered with a pipe that is called a "casing." The casing is usually made of concrete or some other material that is strong enough to hold the pipe in place. The water line is then attached to the casing and buried in the ground, where it is protected from the elements and is not visible from the surface.
When the water line needs to be repaired or replaced, our plumbers will excavate the area where the water line is located. We will then remove the old water line and install a new one, making sure that the new water line is properly attached to the water main in the street and that it is properly covered and protected in the ground.
Why You Need Water Line Repair
A properly functioning water line is crucial to a well-functioning building, but issues can arise that disrupt this vital flow.
Here's why you need water line repair:
- Proper Attachment: An incorrectly attached water line won't deliver water from the street to your building.
- Protective Covering: Inadequate ground protection risks damage from freezing temperatures or shifting soil.
- Contamination Risk: A damaged line can lead to water contamination, posing health concerns.
- Flood Prevention: Damaged pipes may break, causing indoor flooding and property damage.
